    I swapped eggs with someone here, and they already shipped mine using a paypal label. I want to do the same, but being a techno dummy, I can't figure out how to make one when a payment wasn't made. Help? I need to ship them today- and want to figure this out. I know I can just take them to the PO, but want to learn how to do this.

    thanks all- I was trying to use Paypal to pay for it, but there wasn't that option on the USPS site. My DSL went out again while I was trying to use the Paypal page multi shipping tool....Darn Verizon- all day long lately (Sat, Sunday, Today) it doesn't work at all. Then around dinnertime it starts to work again. We just upgraded to high speed DSL and I'm about to switch providers if this doesn't improve...I had to just take it to the PO and it weighed less than I put in on the computer, but cost more to send. How's that?
    Anyways, thanks for helping. I'll do that next time, as long as I have an internet connection! I'm going thru withdrawal when it doesn't work all day. Ugh.

    Mine did that as well. I was going to print mine online but ran into the same problem, can' t use paypal to pay for it. Anyway, mine weighed less than I put online but cost me more. I do wonder why as well.

    USPS gives you a discount for printing your own postage. Also delivery confirmation is free when you use click n ship or paypal. That's why it costs more.
