12/21/2022 UPDATE We are pleased to announce that the APS StampStore on HipStamp is now open for business.
In August, we announced a promotional partnership with HipStamp, an online site for stamp commerce. We had initially planned to launch this partnership on Oct 1, however we uncovered some unexpected technical difficulties while testing our integration. These technical issues are being resolved to ensure that the APS StampStore continues to provide the exemplary service our members have come to rely on and expect.
To learn more about the partnership, read this column from The American Philatelist. If you have questions about the partnership please read our HipStamp and APS partnership FAQ.
With over 100,000 members and $20 Million in annualized sales, HipStamp is the leading marketplace devoted exclusively to stamp collecting. Founded in 2016, HipStamp was built for stamp collectors, by stamp collectors.
With exclusive browse, search, and selling features which intuitively understand Country and Catalog Numbers, HipStamp provides collectors with unparalleled access to over 6.5 Million listings and counting. It’s free to buy on HipStamp and cost-effective to sell on HipStamp, which provides a wide range of additional benefits and features with each store subscription.
