Default Re: How To Get DC# and Pay Shipping Online??

I use a kitchen scale that I already had. It weighs only up to 5 lbs but the vast majority of my shipments are less than that and it shows the ounces well which is what I need for first class.

For very light packages (1-2 ounces), you'll end up paying more postage online via PayPal. I think it costs something like $1.30 for 1 ounce, when you can use a 42 cent stamp (no delivery confirmation, tho). But above 4 ounces it seems to be more reasonable, especially considering the 18 cent delivery confirmation. And online delivery confirmation is free for priority mail - I don't think that's the case at the PO.

Maybe a really dumb question, but when you list "shipping" on an etsy site - how do you figure out what to put in? I mean - if you have no clue who is going to order it, etc and where it would go. KWIM??

I also bought my scale from Sam's....well worth the money. I use Click n Ship. You automatically get a DC# for free and you also get a discount on the shipping rates when you use it as well. The only advantage I found with paypal was that they notify the buyer of the item being shipped, but I find Click N Ship to be my preference. But, I still use PP on occasion when I can't seem to get an address to work on usps (that is if the address is a confirmed address on paypal).

I just use my kitchen scale to weigh my packages. I order my boxes from usps.com and have them delivered to my house free then print shipping labels from pp. So easy!
