I highly recommend being already signed in to Paypal before you click that link because otherwise the first thing it asks you to do is to sign in, and if I were you, I'd be REALLY suspicious of any link anyone suggested that took you somewhere where you had to sign in. If you already signed in through your usual secure ways though, when you click the link you'll go directly to the blank shipping label.

I use it all the time when Paypal shipping goes down.

NovaScotia ~ If memory serves, I usually use "small envelope or package" which totally is in there -- hope that helps!

First Class > Package or thick envelope

Then I do either 2 or 3 ounces, usually, as the case may be.
