I just tried to print off a label and it came back that  electronic postage wasn't available for that address which seems to be a normal one in OH.  Why and what do I do now?

I got that before & think it's a glitch, 'cause I closed out of the site, came back, and it printed out fine. [shrug] Gremlins?

From the Help Center, under "FAQ About Printable Postage":

I am getting the message "electronic postage cannot be used for this address".  What does this mean?

  • This message "electronic postage is currently not available for this address" is an error message from endicia.com, our online postage provider, and often it just goes away if the sender tries again to print after a few minutes.  
  • If the address is not validated by USPS,  you will also see the above message.  In the case of an invalid address, the requestor can go to this site  to try to find the "validated" form of his or her address.  Printed postage can't be used to send a package to an address that has not been validated by USPS.
