Small business owners will have the convenience of being able to purchase office supplies for their business when they ship packages.

“We’re thrilled to offer Staples customers the added convenience for shipping UPS packages,” said Damien Leigh, senior vice president, business services, Staples in the press release. “The new billing options combined with our expanded line of packaging and shipping products make one-stop shipping easy for our small business customers.”
