Here it is.

First, we need to tell you that you will not find a way to add postage to your Stamps.com account in any of the places you’d expect. It’s not under “Account”, or under “Buy supplies”, or, in fact, under any of the menu options!

So then, just where the hell is it?

Isn’t it funny when a business makes it so hard for customers to give them money?
