Endicia for Mac Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the Endicia for Mac software without an Endicia account?

Not at this time. To get the most out of Endicia, you'll want to be able to take advantage of its powerful postage printing technology. You'll find, once you start using it, that the time and efficiency savings more than make up for the monthly service fee.

Can I use USPS Insurance for my packages?

Any USPS insurance that is automatically included, such as the first $200 on Priority Mail Express International is still included.
