TotD: Print shipping labels through PayPal for orders without a PayPal payment

March 18, 2008 at 12:30 pm by thetheorist

Tip of the Day

Occasionally, you may need to print labels for shipments that weren’t paid for through PayPal or purchased through eBay. PayPal Multiorder Shipping allows you to create new United States Postal Service labels, but not UPS. It’s also a hassle, slower than the normal PayPal shipping screen, and can’t print some types of labels. Sure, you could just go to or, but I find printing labels through PayPal to be significantly faster than using either individual site.

There is an easy solution though. Just log into your PayPal account and then enter the following address.

This will bring up the normal shipping label creation screen for PayPal, but without any information filled in and not affiliated with any payment. Presto, easy label creation.

The Submit button may not be appearing or working correctly in IE6. I would suggest upgrading to IE7 or Firefox 2 for full functionality (I'm still looking for a solution to this if anyone knows one).
