Default Ok, I bought a postal scale. Now what? Help :)

I got the digital one that does up to 20 lbs. That's the highest I could find at office depot. Now can someone tell me how to ship items? I know to add the % and .30 on paypal and how to invoice. But is there a site I can go to that is like a shipping for dummies? Lol

I ship through pay pal and its pretty easy you fill in the weight and package size and if you want to ship priority, parcel post, first class and so on. Pay pal does the rest. you print and Viola!!! Done!!!

Yes pp. Ok so I have to measure each pkg? And print as in the shipping label?do I just tape it to the box? See what I mean, I know nothing . I had been going to the po for quotes etc.Also, where can I find out the diff of parcel, first class, priority etc?

you can go to www.usps.com and you can get see the shipping prices there.. (find where it says calculate shipping)
you put your zip there zip what kind of package you will be shipping & weight and it will tell you everything.

now when they pay you through pp all you do is click the print label button and fill out the rest of the info which would be how your shipping & weight now for first class or flat rate boxes you do not need to measure the packages ... for priority & parcel I belive you do.

now if they gift you the money or if your just sending something like say a gift you will have to do multi order shipping .

you can buy shipping labels through ebay the sticky ones or you can print on reg computer paper and tape it to the box but do not tape the barcode part.
you can tape everything else...
when I do it I try to tape the whole label, just not the barcode in case it gets wet they still now where it should go.

you can look on here first, if you like

http://www.usps.com/tools/calculatepostage/welcome.htm

or paypal will tell you, as well...you can see how much they will charge you before you even pay, so if you don't like it, you don't click on the "pay" button

when you're in paypal, you would go to the "Print Shipping Label" for that transaction and follow the prompts...but like I said, if you don't like what it says, don't click the "pay" button, and go back and try another way to ship...for instance, if you find parcel post costs too much, go back and try priority, or whatever

like the OP said, paypal is super easy and very convenient!

pp has the package size options on a drop down menu. you pay from pay pal and print the shipping labels at home. than just drop it off at the po or squedule a pick up form the usps site. I know that for first class the package cannot weigh more than 13 oz. priority is almost always flat rates unless you order regular non flat rate boxes from usps (free) parcel is for anything big not being shipped priority. I guess is cheaper depending of package size.
