Default eBay shipping VS Stamps.com

I just started a stamps.com account only because the cheapest shipping charge with first class shipping on Stamps.com is $0.92 as apposed to $1,67 on eBay, (no tracking #) every other price in the shipping site as far as can see is the same. Does anybody see any advantage to this, I can't unless you ship MANY 1-2 ounce packages with NO tracking #, enough to over the $16.00 a month Stamps.com fee other than that I see no advantage unless I am missing something... Any comments or suggestions???

Might be good if you ship under 13 oz or to build feedback or ship a lot of the packages.

I personally didn't like using them.
You have to wait for the kit and such and Id rather have eb/pps system deal with it than a 3rd party like stamps.com

Another factor is, if you have slow sales, you're still paying for the monthly fee.

It starts to come in handy if you sell on multiple venues it can pull all your orders into one place. Very convenient.
