I have a dymo labelwriter and there are not any paypal options that will print label large enough to read.  They worked just fine when I was on "E" using the 4 x 6 option. What do some of you former "E" people use now for paypal shipping other than printing on copy paper and taping like crazy?  I really do not want to do that.

I don't use Paypal shipping. I actually don't even know what it is!  I just print my own labels with Word and package everything, and go to the Post Office.  That way I can print whatever size Avery label I like!
I also have a dymo labelwriter, but I also print my own labels with that in the size I want.  I am not a former "E" person - I am still there - where the sales are.

I definitely understand the "sales" part.  In retrospect, I can remember the 100+ views a day and at least 8-10 sales a week.  I am really hoping ArtYah will eventually lead into those kind of sales.  Seems as if ArtYah is trying very hard to get there.  We all want our shops to be so busy that we are running crazy sometimes.  Last Christmas on the other shop, I was so busy didn't think I could keep up.  I want the same thing here.  I'm waiting!

I print directly from PayPal, but is there a way you can download the label and enlarge it before you print? I always download my postage labels in case I have to reprint one.

I can't offer any advice for the dymo.  I use PayPal labels and they print out really well, but I use the copy paper and tape method, which you'd prefer not to do.  I've gotten so fast at assembling boxes and taping labels on them over the years that it doesn't bother me anymore.  I remember the days when I used to get into all-out fights with my packaging tape and swear up a storm.

I hear you MicheleMade!  Been there....done that.  I am so frugal that I think of the Dymo that E suggested, tried it, loved it, and just trying to get my monies worth.  (It's expensive)  I will go back to the copy paper for now.....oh wait!....I don't need to....I have no sales!

I do it this way too. But I still get in fights with the packing tape and 'swear up a storm'.[biggrin]

Hi- So if you print via PayPal you get Commercial rates for the postage..when you go to the PO to pay you are paying retail rates.. this is the same with the other site we are not supposed to mention here. lol
You can still use whatever size label you want- just make note of it when you go to print. And like another said it is handy to just save the label to a file and then it is easier to reprint if needed.

You can still charge the customer the retail rate- which may be good in case the web sites go down and you can't get to print a label- then you would have to go to the PO anyways and pay full price.
Just a thought.
