Default Paypal shipping label question

Quick question for anyone that uses these to ship:

So I sell a lot of sets and large lots (most of which are in 300 count boxes).

I usually use the priority mail flat rate bubble envelopes (available online) but my post office has been sending them back lately as I've been printing the label for priority mail flat rate envelope (apparently only counts for the skinny one you could only fit papers in).

I think the difference in post office is 60 cent or so.

Being as I ship hundreds of these per year, is there a better way to ship or a way to print on Paypal that would give me that option since they are different prices?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When you print off the label, you need to mark it as the flare rate bubble envelope. It is a little higher priced to ship then the regular flare rate envelope. By selecting it, you will solve your problem. (I use them all the time to ship on ebay.)

I must be missing that, because I don't see it as an option when I go to ship. All I see under priority mail is the flat rate envelope, which is the standard one (not the bubble). Will PM you for more details. Thanks

Edit: I see it on ebay, I'm asking about standard paypal. Looks like it's missing as an option straight from paypal to me. Maybe I'm missing it...

Paypal shipping has not updated in a long time to include the padded mailers. I have not looked in a while but think they are missing regional boxes as well.

Well then that makes me ask... why can't they update Paypal? You'd think with tens of thousands of people using it to ship, they could add what they have on ebay. What a joke.

Thanks for the insight!

I am not seeing it on Firefox, but if I switch to Chrome I can see it.

Since the last big update of Firefox I cannot print labels on Ebay either, I can see them on screen, but they won't print.

Ship through Click N Ship.

Go to usps.com & purchase postage using your paypal account.

Can get all the Regional flat rates & other boxes there.

You're using the wrong ones, not padded. Unless you have a different selection I guess.

If it's only a .60 cent difference buy some 60 cent stamps and add it to the label. Should work out.

No. I am using the correct ones. In Paypal, I have the option for padded flat rate. I am using internet explorer if that makes a difference. I do not, however, have the regional rates that I see at the USPS site.

I did that once and they said I still owed money. Their reasoning is that stamps are based on the retail rate not the online discounted price and that once you put a stamp on it you agree to paying the full retail rate. I have heard of others doing it successfully though so its likely one of those things that depends on who sees it and their mood.

Yea must be depending on who sees it because I've had a postal worker at the post office do this for me before, so I assumed it to be correct.

I didn't see the option in multi order shipping but did when I went to pay for the shipping individually. Maybe that helps.

Same thing happened to me. I did not realize it had that option for it, I figured it was the same price.
