Postal, Mail & Shipping Scales FAQs

A postal scale, also known as a mail, or shipping scale, is a device used to accurately measure the weight of packages, envelopes, and other mail items. These scales are commonly used by individuals and businesses to calculate shipping costs and ensure that packages meet weight requirements.

Most postal, mail, and shipping scales are highly accurate and can measure weight to within a few grams or ounces.

There are several types of postal, mail, and shipping scales, including digital scales, mechanical scales, and platform scales. Digital scales are the most common and offer the highest level of accuracy.

When selecting a postage and shipping scale, consider features such as trade legal certification, size, roller/ball top, units of measurement, capacity, precision, remote display, integrated display, and connectivity. It is essential to choose a scale that matches your needs for weighing packages and goods, with consideration for capacity, precision, and connectivity to point of sale systems. The scale’s display, size, and units of measurement should also be appropriate for your needs.

When using a postal, mail, or shipping scale, be sure to follow any manufacturer instructions and use caution when handling heavy packages or items.
