okay so I'm sending 2 books, I printed out the labels. Now I saw the post about USPS, and it got me confused. Do I pay for the postage at the office? Or do I have to add money to PBS and go to my post office and I won't have to pay for anything....ermmmm just confused.

Any additional info i should know?

 

 

Thanks!!!

PBS does not sell postage, only delivery confirmation.  You have to buy postage online or at your post office.

Or you can weigh it if you have a scale and print postage at paypal.com

I have just joined PBS and am trying to figure out how this all works.  I can't see any way to print postage at PayPal, unless you're shipping an item that you've received payment for through PayPal.  Am I missing something?

Try this link.  I had a hard time figuring this out too and on the forum about USPS regulations and stuff someone had put a link.  It is very easy once you've got the place bookmarked in your browser.

There is a link somewhere in there for "Multi Order Shipping" -- it's probably under seller tools.  Once you use it, they'll move the link to your main account page so you don't have to look for it each time.  You can use that tool to manually enter addresses and print labels.
