Does PayPal still have its old multi item shipping page??
Posted by: Harbourmaster

I used to print shipping labels all the time using this but have not needed it in some time and can't find it anywhere on the site. Is it still there somewhere but just hidden?

Does anyone have a direct link to the page?

PayPal shipping seems to be "dead". They now partner with ShipStation.

Google didn't turn it up... all the links I could find go to the new shipping service.

Paypal's old shipping service is dead - I used to keep a link for paypal shipping and it now goes to ShipStation as gareth mentioned. I just now used it for the first time - seemed painless enough, but I don't think the significant discounts are still there.

Shipstation must be a new development, then. Swear I'd used Paypal's shipping within the past year.

"Starting July 2021, we will be moving PayPal Shipping to a new platform powered by ShipStation, a third-party solution that specializes in shipping services."

But it looks like there might have been some overlap during the transition. My last actual PayPal shipping label was exactly a year ago, funny enough, 9/23/21, and it's entirely possible the transition lasted a bit longer. Looks like I didn't have a need to use it again until last month, when I had to use ShipStation.

Decay,

I tried Pirateship. The pricing is good. The site is a pain in the neck since it doesn't store addresses for repeat shipments to the same person or company _and_ it can only handle a single package at a time. It can't do multi-package shipments. Definitely not business friendly even if it offers excellent rates for USPS and UPS.

I can only use Pirateship for single package shipments and when I have the luxury of the time to enter the shipping address for each one. Pirateship is just too much trouble to use for anything else due to its limitations. Even just an address book feature would be a _vast_ improvement over Pirateship's current system.

It doesn’t save addresses but you can input them from a spreadsheet.

Dennis,

No. That doesn't work. It's a kludge at best. Pirateship, like UPS or the USPS, needs a proper address book system as a part of its web application. A proper address book is along these lines:

1. You pick the address from the address book and the web app use it.

2. If I have a new address, I can plug it into the appropriate fields and the shipping app gives me the option to save it in the address book for use in the future.

3. I choose an existing address, modify it if it needs revision and the system updates the existing entry or gives me the option to save it as a separate new entry.

Pirateship doesn't offer any of the above and it _really_ needs something along those lines.

Pirateship does save old labels, you can search a name and bring it up to make a new one.
