Printing postage at home question
 
I recently purchased a Brother QL-700 label maker, and it's real easy to print postage through PayPal shipping when I sell a card on eBay. I'm looking for a way to do the same for a trade where there is no PayPal transaction. I'm guessing I can do it through stamps.com or similar, but don't want to pay a monthly subscription rate. Just want to buy and print postage and address labels on the label maker just like I do through PayPal shipping. Seems that buying postage from usps.com requires me to buy their labels and print on my regular printer. Anyone have any help?

Thanks,
Bob

Oh man, I just bought one and set it up just now. Finally got my laptop to accept it as a printer though...

anyway, goto paypal.com/shipnow

You can print labels on paypal without a transaction. :)

I have a Mac, bought exact same printer. I want to shoot myself in the face. I finally after almost using up entire roll got the label to show up correctly on screen BUT still does not print it out correctly!!! Ahhhh

in my experience, you have to print it directly through paypal. it does not work for me going through ebay to print it.

I joined the ql-700 label maker club too.

I tried setting it up with my Mac and it connects fine. However, when I attempted to print labels from Paypal. It seems my Java application is out of date. So I attempted to download the newest update for Java, only to be turned down because I'm still running on Leopard (Mac OS X v10.5) . Apparently I need to update to Lion (Mac OS X v10.7) to properly get this to work.

So until I find a loophole to this problem and or update my Operating System, I luckily have a Windows 7 notebook that works good with the ql -700.

The label maker is awesome. No more ink printing labels for me.

Stamps .com and usps.com can ship labels not using Paypal. This is the only way I know of, try Pitny Bowes directly....
