The StampStore is located online at When a Linn’s editor checked the site on Jan. 5, a total of 247,685 items were listed.

Previously, on Aug. 21, 2022, the APS and HipStamp announced what they called a “strategic partnership.”

“The HipStamp-APS partnership brings together a world-class eCommerce experience built for stamp collectors, by stamp collectors, with the trust and confidence of the world’s largest stamp collecting organization established in 1886,” the two organizations said in the Aug. 21 press release.

The APS will continue to provide StampStore sellers the same services, including scanning, posting, fulfillment, and fielding questions from buyers.

According to the APS, the only change is moving its complete StampStore inventory to the HipStamp platform. StampStore sellers will continue to work with APS staff when selling their stamps.
