Recommended Postage Program?

All-

I am currently using Endicia to print my postage. It's a great program, but I'm sure I've got some unnecessary steps in my process that could be avoided with the right program(s)/process(es).

Currently, I use the FoxyShop plugin (since my site is WP powered) to view orders, but I'm manually copying and pasting the addresses into Endicia and printing labels one at a time. It's much more effective than my last EVEN MORE MANUAL method.

Still, I thought I'd come here and see if anyone has any recommendations for printing postage with, say, one click. I'm trying "SendOff" by Dimebox along with Endcia (for Mac) right now, and while I can see it is a powerful program, I still don't know if it's right for my process. Maybe FileMaker Pro?

Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Hi Jody,

    I'm actually just putting the finishing touches on the latest version of FoxyShop which includes native CSV export. Would that be helpful so you could import directly into Endicia?

    It looks like ShipWorks supports Endicia. I've built a ShipWorks connector which will take your FoxyCart orders and feed them right into ShipWorks automatically, which you could use, in turn, to feed right into Endicia. More info here: http://foxytools.com/shipworks/

    It also looks like Endicia supports an XML connection so you could write some custom functions for FoxyShop which would export the shipping information in a way that Endicia could understand. You'd be looking at http://www.foxy-shop.com/documentation/advanced-customization/ and http://www.endicia.com/Developers/ for more info.
