The Differences Between the Two Types of Endicia Accounts: Endicia Label Server and Regular (DAZzle)

Before you open your Endicia Label Server account, it's helpful to understand the differences between an Endicia Label Server (ELS) account and a regular (DAZzle) account. Solid Commerce and SolidShip support both types of accounts.

Switching Accounts: If you need to switch your existing Dazzle account over to an Endicia Label Server account, simply contact Endicia's customer support.

Endicia Label Server Account:

  • We recommend using the Endicia Label Server because it involves less setup work, prints labels faster, and allows computers to connect without installing software.
  • Using Endicia's Label Server also allows you to receive discounted rates on USPS Priority and Priority Mail Express labels—both domestic and international.

Regular (DAZzle) Account:

  • If you open an account through Endicia's website, it will be a regular account, which requires installing DAZzle software on every shipping computer.
  • One advantage of using DAZzle is that you can customize your shipping labels. If adding a logo, or controlling the location of your references (Rubber Stamps), is important to you, you will want to use a regular DAZzle account.
