The Company

Their products include all the benefits of stamp-free posting, barcode shipping for higher volume and label-free returns. Stamp Free offers two products to customers – Digicode and Easycode. 

Digicode is a convenient way for consumers and businesses to buy postage using a phone/tablet and an app without the bother and cost of stamps. Pre-printed dumb barcodes make it easy to assign correct postage. Easycode is a label-free, eco-friendly returns system for e-tailers and carriers.
