If the customer places the order using Free Shipping the extension allows you to ship the order under any of the supported USPS shipping services.

When it comes to shipping labels, you must be wondering,”…but how am I gonna pay for the shipping labels?…”
Well, Stamps.com USPS Shipping Extension for Magento 2 allows you to pay postage with the official Stamps.com account. You would require a valid Stamps.com account to print shipping labels using this extension. Once you generate and print a shipping label, the postage will be automatically deducted from your Stamps.com account.
