eBay online shipping: what do you prefer?
 
Need help on an eBay-related question. I'm a new eBay seller and have always been printing label via Paypal. Even though I don't sell in large quantities, I just wanted to know, for printing shipping labels online, which one do you prefer: UPS, USPS, Paypal, FedEx, or other companies like Stamps.com?

I've always stuck with USPS.

USPS is the easiest way with paypal it gives you instant delivery confirmation on the label, I never ship anything without delivery confirmation

I use USPS, it is super easy to use.

USPS, easiest to use, you can drop it off at the post office directly to the counter (skip the line), free delivery confirmation (with label printed from PayPal) , you can even schedule free pickup from your postal driver.

USPS is definitely the way to go. I used to ship with UPS but the buyers hated paying the prices. USPS is definitely more affordable and reliable.

USPS PRIORITY MAIL. Also be sure and REQUIRE insurance for your protection.

I learned the hard way about the insurance when I first started out.

USPS 50 cent 'FEE/FINE'
 
For those of you that sell on eBay -

Yesterday, our USPS mailman delivered a package from an eBay seller. The seller had turned an USPS box inside out to pack in (so the brown was on the outside and he didn't have to pay priority shipping that was marked on the box - I've done it myself before).

We had to pay a 50 cent 'postage due' fee because the PO caught it.

I'm going to let this seller know about it. I've never heard of this before. There was a typed strip of paper taped to the package:

"This packaging is the property of the U. S. Postal Service and is provided solely for use in sending Priority Mail shipments. Misuse may be a violation of federal law. This packaging is not for resale. EP14F U.S. Postal Service, Oct. 2008; All rights reserved."
