Enabling U.S. Postal Service shipping
With Quick Shopping Cart®, offering United States Postal Service® (USPS) as a shipping method is very simple because you do not need to establish an account or register, and you can select this shipping method in combination with other methods.
Rates are determined by weight and are calculated in real-time, based on the most current shipping rate tables published by the USPS. The minimum weight is 0.01 pounds (lbs.). If the weight is less than the minimum, then the shipping charge is calculated using the minimum.
With USPS, you are responsible for printing shipping labels and arranging drop-off or pick-up.
