I sparkly heart LOVE using PayPal in my Pure Romance business. There are lots of things I could write an ode to PayPal about (starting with the best customer service of any online company I have ever encountered), but today, I will share with you the how to ship anything (yes, even sex toys) via PayPal and save yourself the drive to the post office. You can even use your PayPal balance to pay for it! It’s a little tricky finding the shipping function so here it is step by step.
Step 1: Log in to your PayPal account and select “Tools” at the top of your page. This might be a business PayPal only function – so if you don’t have a business account, time to set one up!
Step 2: Scroll down to the third row on the next page and click on “Multiorder shipping”.
Step 3: You’ll get a pop-up window here. Make sure you browser allows pop-ups to move on. On the next window, you will see the option to “Continue”.
Step 4: At the next screen, select “Create” to make a new order.
Step 5: Input your package weight, how you want to ship it and the address you want to ship it to. You’ll obviously need to be able to weigh your package. I just use an ordinary kitchen scale. When you are finished, click “Save and Close” or “Create Another” if you have more than one package to send.
Step 6: Click ‘Print’.
Step 7: (I don’t have a picture of this), but right after you click ‘Print’, you will get an option to “Pay and Print”. It will appear where the ‘Edit’ button (under the History tab). Click this, and it will generate a tracking number, charge you for shipping and bring up the box for you to hit print. You can print on plain paper and print it out and tape it or use label sheets like I do.
Step 8: Slap your labels on your package, stick it in your mailbox and you’re done!
Hope this was helpful! I have two small kids who turn into complete nutcases at the Post Office, so this saves the sanity of many.
