Default Shipping help

So I have been in the forum for about 6 months now and I think I'm ready to destash a few items!

Now don't laugh at me (too hard)....

I'm clueless how you all know how much to charge for shipping?
Do you all have scales at home and just put it into paypal?

I've read about the .18 delivery confirmation by printing off labels from paypal, but if I don't have it printed on the sticker paper is that okay???

-I don't have my own printer so i'd have to print it off at work and the printer always jams when I use other paper.... If I need to buy the sticker paper I will.

If I print my own shipping label with the delivery confirmation, can I still just go to the post office and they will charge me for the shipping there!??

Sorry folks I have never mailed anything except personal letters! Please help me if you can and I'f I'm asking in the wrong subforum, or if there's a thread that already explains all this, please point me in the right direction!

Well, I don't have a scale, so before I invoice, I get it all in the box and take them to the PO and weigh them. When you are doing a shipping lable through PP they ask which way you are sending it and how much it weighs. You don't need sticker paper. I always just use regular paper and tape it on. Also, make sure to add the .19 cents for delivery confirmation into your shipping cost. (I ALWAYS forget to do this ) HTH good luck!

Most items, if under 13 oz. can ship first class parcel (usually cheapest), over 13 oz. ship parcel post or priority mail (if you can fit in a small box).

I personally have a scale, but you can calculate shipping in paypal.

Go to Merchant Services
Open Multiorder Shipping
A window will open up and click "CREATE" at the bottom part of the window
Enter the mandatory fields, you can even put random names, etc, but on the city, state, zip, make sure that is correct. If whoever is buying from you gives you a zip, you can look it up at
It will add to your list of shipping labels, click on the label (so the whole line is highlighted) just created and on the right hand side, it will give you the total postage (with tracking cost included)
Once you have done one, you can go back and EDIT the label, changing the weights up to 13 oz, and do the same, highlight and take note of the postage price.

write them down for each ounce, the cost will be the same no matter where it is going (In the United States), then you have a reference of how much postage is!

Hope this helps.
