Use Paypal to send packages
« on: September 19, 2016, 06:31:17 PM »
I just wanted to share something that I literally just learned today.  If you have a postage scale at home (or a food scale, anything that weighs in ounces) you can print postage from Paypal!  This excited me!  I've used USPS.com, Stamps.com, and Endicia.com for years.  Endicia and Stamps has a monthly fee, and USPS will only let you print Priority Mail packages.  Priority mail gets expensive!  Well, I logged into my paypal account and saw the option under "selling tools" for "Multi-order Shipping".  You can click on that, create a label, and print it.  It will take the money from your paypal account.  Saved me about $3 today.  Just thought I'd share  :wc1:

Very useful info. Thanks! I did try using USPS a few years ago, but when I saw that they only allowed the priority shipping stamps, I just continued to purchase forever stamps. I never even knew about Stamps.com or Endicia. I for real live under a rock. But, hey, at least I now know of a site that will save me some money over the other two I never knew about. Thanks again!
