Postal Scale: Top 10 Best Selling Postage Rate Scales

Updated on February 4, 2015

Postal Scales:

Postal scales are ideal to have at home when you begin selling items on eBay or other auction sites, or even from your own web-site.

Instead of driving to and from the Post Office every time you sell an item, you can mail packages from your home using the USPS web site Click-N-Ship feature. With UPS you can even get a discount on postage cost, free delivery confirmation, and a big saving on gasoline by not having to drive across town every time you have a package to be mailed.

All that is needed is a postal scale to weigh your outgoing packages.

Your choice is really then only down to the upper weight of the packages you need to weigh.

The top ten best selling postal scales are:

  1. USPS PS-100 10 lb. Desk Top Postal Scale
  2. USPS PS-105 5 lb. Desk Top Postal Scale
  3. 5lb Digital Postal Scale
  4. Pelouze SP5 5-lb./2200g.Capacity All-Purpose Digital Straight Weigh Postal Scale

  5. Royal Postal Scale (MX-2)

  6. Weighmax 2822

  7. Royal DS3 Postal Rate Scale

  8. USPS PS100 10-Pound Postal Scale

  9. Digiweigh DW-36XP Digital Postal Scales

  10. United States Postal Service PS30USB 30 lb. Digital Calculating Scale

Reviews for and against - you need to weigh up the pros' and con's on this one!

Unfortunately, in the UK, and probably elsewhere, this type of service is not available. In the UK we are hamstrung by what is misnamed the Royal Mail, as it is anything but royal. It was named the Royal Mail because mail was sent through the service covered by a Royal warrant - it was illegal to open any mail unless it was specifically addressed to you.

Our Royal Mail service has been getting worse and worse and more and more expensive as time has gone on. If only we had a service where it served the public rather than served the shareholders and upper management.

For those items that do not have an Amazon product picture associated with them just click on the picture of another to go to Amazon to browse for the item you require.

The items above are very good examples in each of the categories. There are, however, many more options available on Amazon and you can access them simply by clicking on any of the pictures above.
