However, many people are still traditionally looking at USPS. USPS has many excellent handy services, and ShipSaving recommends one of them - Label Broker™, a QR code printing service for labels.

Label Broker is a convenient service offered by USPS. Small businesses and individual shippers can purchase USPS shipping label online, generate it as a QR code, and print it at the post office counter. This service is designed to make mailing easier for those who do not access to a printer. 

How does the USPS Label Broker work?

After you have entered the package information in ShipSaving's system and clicked to confirm the purchase of the label, you will see a pop-up window asking you how to get the label. If you don't have a printer, you can choose [Get QR Code], and ShipSaving will automatically generate a QR code for you to take to the USPS post office for scanning.

Once you have selected it, ShipSaving will send a confirmation email with a QR code to your registered email address, or you can save the QR code with your phone.

How Do I Scan the USPS QR Code

If you possess a USPS Label Broker QR code, there is no need for you to scan it on your own. All you have to do is take the code to the Post Office when you bring in your shipment, and a USPS employee will scan the QR code for you. Inform the clerk that you have a Label Broker ID with a QR code. They will use their equipment to scan the code and retrieve the USPS shipping label connected with your ID. The label will then be printed automatically.
