I am in the market to purchase an electronic scale to work with ShipRush and QB. Any suggestions as to brand, functions, etc? This is all new to me. I've only used a scale that was integrated with a postage meter. I will probably be ordering ShipRush this week, so haven't used it yet. I have read the online manual in details, so I have a good idea of how it works.

Will be using Enterprise 2007 with it.

Thank you. I did see that information.

I was looking for feedback from users about which models might be more functional than others, not worth the money, etc.

The PS 60 USB is a good way to go.

What about Endicia's scale? Is that compatible with Ship Rush?

http://www.endicia.com/endicia-usa/Store/ES2500Ustore.cfm

Brand new only $84.95. Max is 25 pounds, but that is enough for us.

Instructions state:
"The scale is automatically recognized by Endicia's software, so all you have to do is plug it in. To mail an item, place it on the scale, select the mail class, press the weigh button, then print the mail piece."

Sounds like maybe the weight isn't automatically brought into ShipRush when preparing a label. Does anyone know if it is automatic?

I can get a used Mettler Toledo PS60 on eBay for $80 to $100.

Mettler Toledo or Endicia - which is the best way to go?

We don't support the scale from Endicia. You'd have to weigh the item and enter the weight manually into ShipRush. I am sure development is looking to expand the list of scales, just do not have an ETA as to when that will happen.
