Default Print Priority Mail Postage from PayPal

I just saw this notice while logging in to PayPal. It may not be new, but it was new to me:

"The U.S. Postal Service lets you fill a Priority Mail Flat Rate Box (70 lb. limit) for only $7.70 USD and mail it anywhere in the U.S.a great value for sellers! And you can pay for postage and print labels on demand with PayPal. Learn more at the PayPal Shipping Center."

Default PayPal Shipping

Yeah, I forgot to mention it but that was actually the last product I was manager on before I left PayPal. It's actually been up and live for 2 1/2 years or so now. For any domestic "goods" transaction you receive through PayPal, a "Ship" button will appear next to that transaction in your log. Click that button, and then you can ship your goods via either USPS or UPS.

The USPS shipping interface is run through an API with "Click n Ship" (the USPS.com product), but it works much more smoothly and the postage comes straight out of your PayPal account.

The only things we don't ship using PayPal Shipping in our business are international orders, which we still have to fill out the customs forms and go down to the post office to mail.

You need to you the genuine USPS Flat Rate Boxes. They will send them to you free if you order at http://shop.usps.com/cgi-bin/vsbv/po...sp?OID=4849213

There are 2 sizes. Click around a bit and you can find the other.

One suggestion, but you do have to leave PayPal. Stamps.com has an arrangement with on insurance company with much lower rates than the USPS insurance rates.
