Do you have to buy special printer paper/labels? Do you only print 1 per sheet (seems like maybe a waste of paper)?

Do you print and then still have to go to the P.O to actually mail your package or will your postman/woman pick it up for you?

I want to do this, but am not very tech savvy and for some reason it intimidates me. I also don't want to invest alot of $ in expensive label paper. It is very easy for me to stop at the P.O as it is very local, but it's frustrating to always guess postage so I figure if I am getting a scale I might as well print my own labels.

I would also like to be able to use my paypal funds to purchase postage. I feel like I am putting alot of extra money out for postage right now, but I know it doesn't have to be that way. I'd rather do it through paypal but have no idea how to start.

Thanks to anyone who can enlighten me!

I use my paypal debit card at the p.o. It's free from paypal and I can use my funds anytime and get cash out at the bank too
