I'm sure this has been posted here before, but I can't find it.  Can someone give me a link to print postage on paypal.  I have a paypal account, but can't find where you can print postage.  I used to have the link saved, but somehow all of my favorites have disappeared on my computer.  Thanks

Why can I never find this when I go to my PayPal account stuff?  I can always get to this when some kind someone posts a link but when I poke around from my account I haven't been able to find it:lol:

It's not available through the website. It's a special case of the "print a label for a paid transaction" that someone found by accident and saved. But I'm sure glad they did!

ETA: I finally broke down and put it in my Bookmarks

Thanks for telling me!  I've got it here on my watched topic list but I'm afraid it will go away.   I'll do the same and bookmark it:)
Thank you for the scoop...it is so convenient.  Wish they could do something similar here with their postage system.

You can also use PayPal's Multi Order Shipping.  It will let you enter the info needed to make a label, but it lets you hold it there until you want to pay & print.  You can also add info for other orders and pay & print for them all at once.  I find it a lot easier than one label at a time.  I don't have a whole bunch of small charges on my check card, just one for the total of all the labels I print in a sitting.  It is also really easy to check the cost of postage by class.  I use it for just about all the packages I send, even when it's just across town to my dad.

I tried to join it and couldn't figure it out. I need to try it again. It is so hard to get to the post office to mail thicker books to friends. I can use PBS postage but I send books to a friend too.

Hi Tonya!  Did you join through the link on eBay?  I have just a regular account (not a seller) and it did take a couple of days mainly since I didn't use a credit card attatched to my account.   I just set up with something linked to my checking/debit account.   They do some tiny funds transfer of a couple of cents to test it to see if it worked properly.  

This link is helpful because it's mainly available through a seller and I don't have access to it any other way than through a seller posting the link, as was done here.   I keep this bookmarked for ease of use and locating it when I need it.

I think I did sign up for it using ebay, I've only ever used it to buy things. I'll have to try it.
