USPS has announced a price increase effective 27 January, 2019. The cost of a First Class Mail letter (1 oz.) stamp will increase from 50 cents to 55 cents. However, the cost of each additional ounce will decrease from 21 cents to 15 cents.
Effective 6 January 2013, you can now add funds to your account via Paypal. Click on Your Account Status for this option. We do not accept orders for envelopes via Paypal at this time. That's because we need you to send us address labels to put on your new envelopes. And if you're going to send labels, you may as well send a check along with them. However, if you all you need to do is add funds to your account for additional postage, or if you already have plenty of labels on file with your Sorter, using Paypal is now an option for you. PLEASE be sure to include your call sign when using this option so that your funds are credited to your account appropriately. Note that you do not have to have a Paypal account to use this option. Paypal can accept one time transactions without creating an account, and Paypal is a fully secure method of sending online payments. Either way, your payment will show as going to the Bureau's General Manager (KC6AWX).

An astute user of this website, K6GEP, informed us of a useful third party website that will notify you via email whenever an update is made to your account as posted here. Most updates mean that your Segment Sorter has made a mailing, but it could mean that he or she has posted an update to your funds or number of SASEs. In K6GEP's case, he now knows when to expect a new batch of QSLs in the mail. If you find this useful, visit www.ChangeDetection.com.
