Online Parcel Post? Use Paypal USPS Shipping for non Paypal items?
Posted by: MitchJi

Hi,

USPS online printing of shipping labels is very handy. Unfortunately they don't allow Parcel Post, only Priority Mail. Anyone know how to get around that?

If you receive money via Paypal you can choose something like "Print Shipping Label". If you choose USPS you can then choose Parcel Post.

I'm pretty sure I can fill in any name and address I want, so it looks like I can pick someone I've already shipped to and click "Print Packing Slip" or "Ship Another" to print another label to someone else.

Any disadvantages to doing that? Will the person who made the original payment get a notice that something has shipped?

Is there anyway to do that after 30 days of no incoming payments (transactions older than 30 days are not displayed)?



Best Wishes,

Mitch

Merchant Services -> MultiOrder Shipping (at least in a Premier account).

If you don't have a PayPal balance, it will deduct the cost from your linked checking account (so make sure that account has enough in it).

In the normal print label I got the option of changing funding to a CC.

Navigating that way will work but unless you want to import a tab delimited file the link provided by space-time is nicer (I can't figure out how to navigate to that screen so I saved the bookmark).

EDIT: You can almost navigate to that screen by:
Merchant Services -> Shipping Center
Then edit the url:
change the end of the url: _ship-center
to: _ship-now

Thank You Both Very Very Much,

Mitch

Yes, thanks. I needed to do this a few weeks ago and ended up with a silly workaround. This is better.
