We would like to thank all the users who purchased this software through the MacUpdate promotion. We listened to your requests for new features, the largest request was for International shipping. Whilst adding this is going to take a lot of work (USPS ship to other 500 countries! Each country has its own rules and regulations regarding mail.), we are working to add this feature in our next major release (version 3). As promised, version 3 will be a free upgrade for all registered users of versions 1 or version 2. I can't give a timeline, but hope to have this version ready for release within 3 months. Once again, thank you to all those who purchased this software and provided the motivation to add even more features.

I have tried to find the guy myself many months ago. This is heartbreaking that he has abandoned it. I wonder if he had some health problems? . I still use this daily. In its current state you have say okay to the error on startup. The "verify address" function still works and the label function still works. But you have to click the box "use address as is" before you try to print out a label. I think USPS changed their API or something which is why it won't print a confirmation barcode anymore so I get the post office just to issue me one manually when I drop off the package. I was just google searching an alternative to this app (again) and returned back to this page. I am currently using MacOS Sierra. I will continue using this app to print my shipping labels until it completely stops working, all the while looking for an alternative to take over and hopefully find one before that day comes.

It still connects to USPS, but only to verify and auto-correct a street address, not to issue a confirmation barcode. You can still print a shipping label out though, if you click the check box "use address as is" before clicking the print label function. I affix the sticker I get from USPS to the receipt I get from Sent It when I print the label. More work, but it is still somewhat functional and I can't find anything else to replace it (yet).

Another note: My local post office is a contractor for USPS. As I learned, they make commission on shipping fees. They have told local businesses NOT to bring their bundles of pre-paid mail to them anymore and instead take them to the real post office several miles away. That said, they obviously do NOT want me bringing packages with shipping already affixed to it because it just takes up space in their small post office and they do not make any money on the package. SEND IT is a win-win for them because they still have to sell the postage. Yes, I could find another app or website they will generate paid USPS labels, but the downside to that is my local post office contractor will get tired of me real fast. I rely on this app HEAVILY for that reason, plus it is so much better than anything else out there. Less complicated, and gets the job done!

Here is an article of some help. It looks like Swordfish Express may be useful even though it is not supported anymore and was turned into the paid program now known as Endica. I downloaded version 1 off the link they provided, but have not tested it yet.

Thanks Craig42a. I had forgotten I posted my question to tufdaawg earlier. The "use address as is" worked for me as well! I don't use SentIT much, but loved it when I needed it. I'm going to continue as you described and have the USPS print barcode...

@dlclaytor I am still using SENDIT, but as an addressing system with no barcode confirmation. I searched the web and saw that someone suggested SWORDFISH EXPRESS, which I downloaded. I think they stopped making it but it still opened up for me (on OS Sierra). I just tried to make a label and printed a confirmation bar code for me, too. The downside of S.E. is that you can't input weight and can not get the cost for the type of shipping or all the shipping options. Bummer. But that is another option.

sendITt is one of the best software purchases our office has ever made -- it's that good. Our office uses a postage meter with an attached scale. It's easy to weigh a mail piece and manually input the weight and other required info into sendIT, have the program calculate the postage from a menu of mailing options, and then print out the label, complete with delivery confirmation info, from our laser printer. We then just paste the printed label on the mail piece with a glue stick, stick on the postage meter label with the correct postage, drop the piece in the mail, and DONE. Tracking info is saved automatically. No more time consuming trips to the Post Office just because we need delivery confirmation for a mailing piece. The resulting postage savings are a nice bonus. We also use the address confirmation feature of the sendIT quite a bit -- it's easier than looking up the same info on the Post Office site. We were just about ready to look into installing a Windows component into our all Mac office -- so that we could use the USPS online delivery confirmation services without having to go to the Post Office -- when we came across sendIT. Our 20-year record of never using Windows in our office can remain unblemished. Thanks!

The print quality is comparable to the other Dymo printers. Its not amazing, but more than enough for a shipping label. If you contact us through the email address on the website with an address, I'll gladly send a label created by sendIT on a 4XL.

The economics of selling this program at $9.99 did not work. I have never charged for updates. Anyone with version 1 had free updates to present. I add scales when requested. The $9.99 version did not do International labels or Customs forms. I add features requested by our users, including new scales, and new printers. This is a very niche product. I sell at most 1 or 2 copies a month (even at $9.99 we sold the same amount). Some months we don't sell a single copy. I don't get rich selling this, it is a labor of love. The cost of incorporating my company last year was more than we took in revenue. I don't do this to get rich, and occasionally don't cover costs, yet alone make any money for the time spent. Adding a feature or different scale can take hundreds of hours of my time. I then add this feature for free. If you use this product to ship parcels with confirmation fees then it can easily pay for itself in no time at all. This is the only non subscription service that allows you to add delivery confirmation to First Class mail. If you ship your items First Class and need Delivery Confirmation. Using sendIT it is 19c, at the Post Office it is 85c. That is 66c for every item you send. You get free Delivery Confirmation on Priority Mail shipped with sendIT, which you can also get using the USPS web site. It doesn't fit everyones need. It makes sense to those who ship a lot of First Class items, or want a convenient interface. I suspect most people who use it have already recouped the cost in the saving they see. One customer told me he ships 1,000 packets a year, he saves twice as much a year in shipping costs than I make selling the program.

Thank you very much for taking the time to explain the increase in cost. "If you use this product to ship parcels with confirmation fees then it can easily pay for itself in no time at all." In the interest of full disclosure, the USPS does offer a free software package (used to be called Shipping Assistant) that does provide the feature you mention as being a cost savings in your software, i.e. Delivery Confirmation on First Class packages. One could feasibly use Parallels or VMWare Fusion to provide the functionality you mention at no cost. That said, this software package for the OS X platform is definitely the only one out there that does not require a monthly subscription (Endicia for Mac). Also, the printer and scale interfaces look to be novel, as well. Again, thank you for the background on why you decided to increase your product's cost.

I should have clarified I specifically meant this was the only Mac OS solution. My apologies for that. I presumed as this was a Mac software site it would go without saying. It wasn't meant to decieve. It may even be possible to use Wine with their shipping assistant. I have never tried it though. I actually offered the program to USPS for Mac users, but they said the "shipping Assistant" you mentioned was planned to work on Mac as well. That was over 2 years ago, it still doesn't. It would have been great for them to maintain the software. It makes me no real money.

I have been a satisfied user for about 2 years. Until recently, I had been inserting parcel weights manually. I recently purchased a DYMO M25 USB scale and found it did not interface with the program as I had hoped. When I contacted the developer to see if they could help out, they responded that they would take a look and see if something could be done. The developer spent 4 days working with me and finally rewrote the program so that the scale worked. It works perfectly and I could not be more pleased. So now I have a great program that works with my particular scale and a developer I know will make the extra effort to ensure customer satisfaction. Buy this program with complete confidence.

Nice to see the update where the shipping notification email is emphasized (and shows automatically if data is in the field) -- it could be easy (before) to forget that an email that had been used with a prior shipment was maintained by the software and so accidentally used in shipments coming after [especially between sessions] -- those people would get confused why they got package shipping notices!. Today's update will help us avoid that embarrassment. This program continues to get tweaks and improvements -- it is greatly appreciated.

This is a good alternative FOR PACKAGE mailing -- for us doing low volumes or who just want to avoid another monthly service fee or the need to invest in pricey labels and printers. This seems to me to be a GREEN alternative to some other methods. There are alternative subscription mailing services that charge recurring monthly fees -- like stamps.com ($16/mnt if you really want to use a PC emulator!) or endicia.com ($16/mnt) Subscription services may prefer & in some cases require that you use special "label" stock, and pre-purchase postage that you may lose after printing or damage in the printer -- sometimes non-refundable. The label stock itself is for subscription services is not free and must come from the provider. You can't always just use your normal home printer -- so carefully add all the costs when you make considerations of one method to another. Ourselves the convenience of doing USPS click & ship with their automatic discounts does satisfy most of our PACKAGE shipping needs -- however sendIT is a valuable bridge I would not want to burn especially concerning small packages which would not be as cost effective if we just upgrade small shipments up to the smallest flat rate option, which costs currently $5.15 (retail) a pop. Not every package you ship should cost a minimum of $5.15 but that's the only on-line click and ship option open to many of us. SendIT opens that up to us and gives us more options. Currently USPS does not give us the ability to print all types of postage (like first class for small packages). For our smaller packages using sendIT provides to us a significant cost savings, and it is a great time saver as we can prep those packages and pre-stamp them before we leave to take all our collective shipments to the PO. Many times in the past we would put small packages into the small flat rate just to avoid standing in the PO lines (with USPS click a& ship you drop off and don't need to stand in line typically). Our postal clerk has gotten so used to the accuracy of our packages since we have been using SendIT that we can hand them over and she just takes them -- besides the handing to the clerk it is almost as fast as the click and ship portion! Versus just going directly to the PO, you not only save the time of waiting in line but also on fees such as on delivery and signature confirmation -- these can really add up if you use them and most of us shipping packages do these days. You have to put actual stamps on your packages or wait in line to buy postage -- no postage will print out from SendIT. We handle that by pre-buying some bigger unit stamps (like the $1 kind) and some smaller units and pre-afflix at home, if we were to not have postage -- the PO clerk can just scan the label and know exactly what to collect from us! In our case, we save a couple of bucks using SendIT versus just sticking it into a flat rate envelop each time we have used it -- so the software paid for itself fairly fast. SendIT can be a valuable alternative to get your packages out the door and delivered when snags occur with USPS. USPS simply has gone down a couple of times on us during the last year -- a program like SendIT is helpful to bypass USPS when it can't do the job. SendIT confirms addresses and has has at times had better address handling results than the on-line USPS system; we have had the personal experience of having their system refuse to make a label to an addresses the customer had for 15 years -- but that was not the case with SendIT, the address went right thru and our happy customer got their coffee when we switched their package into SendIt software! Works with some USB scales -- we have always used it in manual mode with no problems -- but nice to know that option is open to us. The software keeps a copy of tracking and of your actual label, so you can re-print or have a "receipt" -- can interface with your Apple address book, and there are some other features thrown in that I never used and don't remember but it is a well thought out "one trick but an outstanding trick pony" I found a few minor things very early on, emailed back and forth with the developer who did respond and eventually took care of matters in one release fairly quickly and another which was nothing serious and resolved that in a later update. I have been using it since October 2011, so now have had experience with it some 4 months. I would buy it again, and wish I had incorporated it into our system a few years ago instead of months ago. It's stable, has a developer who does communicate and keeps it up to date, you can obtain savings using this software you can't by going to the post office, it's a good back up to relying solely on USPS on-line if that's all you happen to use at this time -- a niche filler for those of us who ship PACKAGES. The MacUpdate rating system for some reason froze my stars -- guess they froze when I went in to write -- I'd give it all 5 stars if I was allowed to :)-
