Return Shipping Label to Customer Through PayPal

Do you have a customer who wants to return an item and you need to pay for the return shipping?  

Tonight my partner in all things eBay really helped me out when I had a customer who needed to return an item.  I am not part of the return process at eBay by choice (since I sell patterns I do not want a lot of returns due to copyright).  It was nearly impossible to figure out how to send the customer a label to return the item to me.  I asked for help on Facebook and Scott came right through.  

If you need to send a return label by PDF form and email to a customer you can log into PayPal and go to this page

Pre Paid Return Label to customer by email 

Change the mailing address for SHIP FROM:  the buyers address for the main reason that this will change the cost of shipping if they are in another zone and you are shipping priority.  

in the SHIP TO: Column on the right fill in your address Preview Changes

Calculate what you know the weight to be since you mailed this to the customer. You can find the amount in eBay shipping or your third party.  Mine was with Stamps.com

You will put in weight, etc 

Hit Continue 

You will see the cost you are being charged.  Press the Pay and Continue button. 

You will then see the button to print label.   Hit Print and there will be a PDF button.  If you are on a Mac it is really easy as it says to mail a PDF to email recipient

If you are on a PC, it is a bit different but make sure you use the PDF. I think it is a link.

USPS Parcel Select & Standard

So with all the questions of the January 27, 2013 change to Parcel Select and eBay not printing Parcel Select Labels until late March, I get asked about it all the time

My friend Eric Nash at Stamps.com answered many questions on this blog a few days ago. 

The Difference between Parcel Select and Parcel Standard   <———  The article is great.. 

Can I buy Parcel Select at the Post Office?
NO — Parcel Select  can only be purchased online via a PC Postage vendor (such as Stamps.com) or from an authorized USPS business partner.

Can I buy Standard Post (formerly known as Parcel Post) online using Stamps.com?
NO — Standard Post postage can only be purchased at the Post Office.

No USPS Saturday Delivery? Packages YES

Today the United States Post Office (USPS) announced that starting in August 2013 that there will be no Saturday delivery of mail to homes and businesses.  Don’t get scared if you are an online buyer or seller.  There is great news for all of you.  There will be Saturday delivery of all packages, first class, parcel and priority.  

So if you sell online, the news is really not a change if you send packages. If you ship a package and it is supposed to arrive on Saturday… it will.   There will be no delivery of first class letters, junk mail etc.  

Post offices that are open now will continue to be open and you can send any type of mail on Saturday.  Will there be Pick Up for Priority on Saturdays at your home or business?  That is to be determined.  However, if you have packages ready to go and you see a carrier or your carrier delivers to you, they should take the packages for you.   You can still go to your local post office and drop off all mail.  

This is good news for carriers locally where I live as the full timers will not have to rotate and work different schedules. They will work Monday – Friday and the lighter Saturday delivery will be done by the sub route carriers.   So….. no complaints anyone… if you send packages there is no change to you… it could have been much much worse.

USPS First Class International Parcel + 60% Increase

I wrote last week about the changes to the USPS shipping service for International First Class Parcel that is coming on January 27th.  

I think the biggest shock is going to be mailing packages to Canada for most sellers.  

Most of the first class international packages are going to be going up at least 60%  Yep Sixty percent..  Remember you will get delivery confirmation on many first class to Canada for free (you pay for it, believe me). The post office has been secretive about what exactly will be “Select”.  I have made a form below to give you an idea of the difference.  Check back tomorrow for Priority Prices. 

Note:  this is online prices if you use Stamps.com, eBay Shipping, PayPal Shipping, etc.   If you go to the counter you will pay more.

Flat Rate is Pricing not Thickness

Flat Rate Priority Envelopes… Is it Flat Rate Pricing or does it mean it has to be Flat?

Flat Rate Priority Envelopes means it is the same price to mail a package anywhere in the United States, Puerto Rico and Territories including FPO/APO for around $5.00

It can be any thickness as long as the envelope has not be reshaped by cutting it … actually read the DMM here

This is 123 1.5 of the DMM for USPS.

12315dmmflatrate

If it fits, it ships.   UP TO 70 lbs.

You can print off the DMM from the USPS website.  Copy 123 1.5 and take to the post office if you have postal clerks that don’t know the postal regulations.
