This is the 4th time I have tried in the last two weeks to print a shipping label through paypal. It tells me its not working and couldn't generate my label. What is going on? Is this happening to anyone else?

I printed labels this morning without any issues. You might want to contact PayPal or try clearing your cache and rebooting your computer, or both.

I printed a label without a hitch too. You might want to contact Paypal customer service as it sounds as though yours could be an isolated problem.

You can use this link to print labels on PayPal (back door)
when you can not complete it normally.

that happens to me sometimes when the buyer is unverified, the address is unconfirmed, or some other little hitch that makes a computer lose its mind... for me usually I can print 20 labels and then it gets hung up on one buyer.But I can go to the next customer in line and it prints fine! When it does happen, the message always says"Paypal shipping is not available-please try again later".
It's just silly.

I just printed 2 with no problem.

I've not had a problem either. I printed a couple over the weekend and one just this morning. Try contacting PayPal to find out what the issue is.
