Curious about how to use either Paypal or Ebay to create shipping labels for books being mailed out in games so I can still get either free or discounted delivery confirmation?  I know I've seen items sent to me with those labels, but couldn't find a way to do it on either site, just how to ship orders for payments I've received.  Thanks!

Melissa, I bookmarked the address above, because it's not that easy to find on the Paypal site.  I really should use it more often, especially for games mailings where credits don't matter.

Awesome!  Thanks so much Diane!  From packing some orders today, it looks like anything 8 ounces or less is cheaper to send via first class mail since DC is still free with that option when the postage is paid online.

I also have that paypal link bookmarked, and use it whenever I want to send anything with DC (so much cheaper than the PO DC).I did try to find it once from the paypal home page - without any success. Does anyone know how to find it from there? - if it is even possible.

TIA

MISTIE, I only know how via the above Link/Address, and I have never been able to find the location through Paypal's Site.

However. if you are logged on already at Paypal, you can just go the above Link, and won't have to login again...

(I forgot whom Posted this info in another Forum).

I did manage to find it once on the paypal site for my mother, but I know it involved lots of clicking and cursing.  I have no idea how to do it now.  I made sure to bookmark it for her.

I've been using that for all my swap sites since someone on another recommended it.
