Do I have to do this myself through USPS? I've just got my first three sales using DC and haven't begun working on the items yet.... Just wondering how shipping works since its not through Paypal..

You can also print labels through paypal-thats how I currently do it. When you log in look to the side for the multi-label tool link. Once you're there just click edit, add the info & you've got it :)

After you log in you can also use:

This should bring you to a screen that you normally use when you have a paypal sale. The only difference is that you need to type in the mailing address.

I use etsy shipping for domestic orders and love it, so convenient not having to leave the site, and the fee is added to your bill

Lauren I was going to use etsy shipping for my last sale but it told me I had to pay my bill. Does this happen to you? I only owed a little over $15.

I had this happen too Teresa... I think I'll just stick with Paypal. I found a way to use the multi label tool where I can manually put in info...
