Yes you can do that, but keep in mind that the APC requires at least a $1 purchase.
Alternatetively, you can buy a $1 stamp first then specify your 18 cent stamp. I think this would work.
Hope this helps! :)
Because you can't buy eDC through the menu on the APC, you will need to take a few more steps than just putting it on the scale and following the menu selection.
What I do is weigh the package at home and look up the postage on USPS.com and then add the .18 so I know the total postage I need. Then at the APC I just use the buy a different stamp option to buy one stamp for the total amount.
If you don't have a scale and can't get the weight of the package any other way than on the APC scale, then I would go through the menu for First Class and get your base postage that way. Tell it you want the little label not the big one it defaults to (at least ours want to print a big old label). Then when it asks if you want to do anything else, say yes and use the buy a different postage stamp option and print the .18 to add to the package. As long as you print the main postage label in the same session as the .18 you should be fine on the $1 issue.
