You CAN print international first-class shipping labels from home!

Hate having to go to the PO every time you want to ship something internationally, first-class? You can print the label from home. Paypal doesn't yet have the option, but USPS online does.

Use the USPS Shipping Assistant (http://www.usps.com/shippingassistant/)

It requires you to download an app. There is an option in the app to ship internationally; it prints a label that looks exactly like the one eBay generates for international packages, which includes all the customs info. I've used this tool to ship packages overseas successfully over the past few weeks.

PLEASE NOTE: this tool only generates a label - it does not actually allow you to PAY for the postage. The tool will tell you how much postage is due, and you must affix the appropriate amount of postage to the package. So to use this method, you should keep a stash of stamps on hand. ($1, forever, 20 cent, 5 cent, and some 1 cent stamps.)

I have added this nugget of info to my stickied Shipping thread below:
