I just realized that the last time I made a shipping label through PayPal I may have made a mistake. The drop down menu for priority packages only had an option for "flat rate envelope" which I just realized is different from the padded flat rate envelope that I used, with slightly different fees. What will happen to my package? Will it be returned to me?

Re: Shipping through paypal question

if you mailed it already it will either get returned because of insufficient postage or i have heard sometimes it still get delivered but the buyer will have to pay the extra postage, so id give them a heads up and just offer to pay them back whatever they end up getting charged

Ok. Thanks. Is there a way to make a label for padded envelopes through PayPal?

Subbing. I cannot figure out how, but I wish there was a way.

not through pp, but you can use the usps site and use pp to pay for it.

Re: Shipping through paypal question

Just slap a 15 cent stamp onto the package with the printed paypal flat rate label and you are fine.

I maybe wrong,pls correct me if I am!
I used to think that Paypal charges $4.90 for a flat rate envelope and the actual charges for a padded one are $5.30, so the difference between the 2 is 40 cents.we need to add stamps worth 40 cents to our package.

$5.30 is the retail (post office) price. Online, it's $5.15 (if you go through eBay or USPS click-n-ship).

Likewise with the regular flat rate envelope. Retail price is $5.15, online is $4.90.

So either way, there's only a 15 cent difference.
