thankyou for your answers but what i mean is how do you purchase the postage through the paypal website and then print it off?
Rather than going to the post office to send you print the postage off from paypal and then i presume take it to the post office but pay no money as it has already come out of paypal account. Does this make sense? (doesn't to me )
It's quite straight forward to use paypal for the postage but when you take it to the PO you still have to queue and hand it over to obtain proof of postage. Therefor you havent saved any time or money, but the PO has lost out on the money and may as a result get closed down - doomed!
Its really easy. You click on the print postage button at the top of the listing page or in seller manager. This prompts you to log in to paypal. It then provides you with a screen which you enter the service you want and the weight, follow the prompts on the screen and print out the label. I use it all the time, and as the items I sell are small and low value I just put the parcels straight in the post box. They don't seem to be too strict about weights and sizes so long as you don't take the whatsit! I think they realise peoples kitchen scales aren't that accurate. If you take it to the post office then they will check it and charge you the extra if you've got it wrong!
