    Question Paypal & USPS shipping labels - Help!

    I want to create USPS shipping label for a paypal sale (after processing the credit card transaction). Does anyone know how to do this? I'm looking through their "help" section now, but not finding exactly what I need. I print "packing slips", but don't see a "shipping" label option for the outside of the box.

    TIA for any help!

    Clarifying: I don't want to print a shipping label that I'm paying postage for. I'm merely looking for a simple label to put on the outside of the package. (I'll pay postage at the P.O.)

    priority labels are at the post office. i don't think i understand what your looking for. you can just write the address on the box actually.

    If we didn't have so many orders, I wouldn't mind writing it out, Beyond Belief. We also like the company logo to show up-just like on the packing slip. I'll probably just have to copy/paste the buyer's addy onto some type of label template but that seems to be such a senseless step when I already have the info/logo etc on file at PP.

    Nothing's easy, I guess. Thanks for your help though!

    Business is certainly picking up, which is nice in this economy, but the little things are taking up more time! lol

    Isn't there a shipping button on your paypal accounts overview page? If I remember correctly you should be able to print labels from there.

    You can check it out & view a demo here.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi blaize!

    When I went to that area, it will allow me to make and print a "prepaid" shipping label for USPS or UPS. My boss doesn't want to do that right now for some reason, although I think it would make it easier. Things are just picking up so I think he'll be changing his mind once we get the little things tweaked. For now, I'm cutting and pasting.

    It would certainly make things a lot easier to use the prepaid label lol but I guess the boss needs to learn the hard way lol.

    I wonder could you use your browser's print preview and print function to print some label info from paypal, maybe part of the shipping label? It would look a bit crude but it might work.

    Woohoo! We tried the Paypal version and it was actually about .40 cheaper than going to the P.O. box (weird!). So now I can print these labels off and drop them in the box once they are taped on. Way cool. Thanks for your help!

    You're very welcome Taximom, I'm glad it was a little cheaper on the business.
