I personally HATE gift payments because, as a seller, it prevents me from using the built-in paypal shipping.
To go over to usps.com and print something out or do it in person at the post office is a PITA compared to using Paypal for everything.
Plus doing it from Paypal puts the tracking number into the transaction and emails the buyers the information.


RE: Gift... (we're only talking 'gift' here)
PayPal has built in shipping... can do Parcel Select, First Class, Media Mail...
You can't do some of those on the USPS site.
Only thing you can't do on PayPal is international.
Tracking numbers are produced... just have to copy paste to email.
Here's how to do it... (takes a little window jockeying)... go to PayPal, log in... scroll down a bit & you'll see it on the left... can create templates too Smile

I almost never go to the post office... because usually when I ship... I'll have at least one item that is going Priority Mail (this is the magic trigger)... and when you ship anything Priority Mail... you can submit a FREE online pickup request. When you submit the request... you can add Media Mail, Ground, etc.... items... and they'll pick them all up (FREE)... from your porch... or wherever you state they need to look for them!!

Weird that they don't support the Chrome web browser.
Thanks though, I will check it out in Firefox.

I agree with you on the USPS.com web site limitations on types of shipment, that is one of the reasons I like using Paypal to ship too.

I always get that pop up warning and I use Chrome, just ignore the warning and hit "continue" button

I hear you on that E.!

A new problem at PayPal with sellers getting received payments:

PayPal now send us sellers a money received e-mail BUT if we answer that e-mail to confirm the purchase to the buyer, it doesn't go anywhere.

We used to be able to click and confirm the buyer we actually got the PP payment properly.

Some buyers mis spell my WERKSBERG addy (which then I don't receive the payment and the PP funds are held in their PP account until corrected) or send the payment as a Gift or to friends so no ship to address stated on the payment..... and I need show them the problem with no address to ship to.

And do not try and save me the 3% by sending the PP as a gift as I use PP for my shipments and it makes much easier plus faster for me. Plus I'm protected somewhat at PayPal just like the buyer....

This is not true for the payment I received today, I can still click Reply and it has their email address there.

These were standard payments and NOT gift payment so maybe something is different with Gift payments - I cannot verify that.
