Since I can't get to the post office any time soon (twenty mile trip one way) I decided to print the postage for my latest  book request. You can imagine my shock when I get in red letters: "Cannot print postage for your address" !!! This is ridiculous! I print postage as well as pick-ups at USPS all the time for my auction sales !!! Now i am out five dollars. I don't use DC, but now i wil be forced to just to use up the 5.00 taken from me. I am also not too happy with all these extra charges I am seeing being tacked on when I buy credits, etc.  Anyone else irked about this kind of thing???

Is your address correct in the PBS system?  Not sure what to tell you.  I've never had to buyh credits but I know the fees they charge for buying postage, transferring $ etc.., are the fees that PBS is charged to process the money.

Are you sure it's your address for which postage can't be printed? Usually it would be the To address that has the problem. You should be able to use up your $5 on the next labels you have to print.

It just did the same to me now when I print postage on PBS all the time. There must be a glitch or something right now.

I checked my transation archive and it didn't charge me. But I want the printed postage. I don't want to drag 3 hyper kids to the USPO.  It's always worked for me before. I'm waiting for one of the "live helpers" to respond to me.

It's letting me print postage again.
