Shipping Label under by $0.68

So I printed a label from PayPal. I either weighed my items incorrectly or entered the number wrong because it was returned to my mail box with a pink post-it note stating "Postage Needed .68"

So I put two stamps on it and re-sent it...did I do the right thing? Should I have printed a new label? What would that have done...can you even print 2nd labels?

it should be fine with 2 stamps added. I got package recently that had correct postage (fre) yet had 10 .02 stamps all over the front, no idea why?

Re: Shipping Label under by $0.68

The post office that delivers my parents' mail regularly makes them pay the difference between "post office" price on packages where the label was printed online when packages get delivered. They either deliver the package to my parents with a bill envelope saying "pay $1.08" or something like that OR they make my parents go in to the post office to pick up the package and pay the difference. It drives me insane, and I always try to get them to file complaints about it, but they're always like "is the $.35 really worth my time"? Which it's not, but this has all added up to probably close to $100 over the last year or two.

if it was the newer padded flat rate envelope, it is because they actually cost a little bit more than the regular flat rate envelope, but pay pal has not caught up yet and added the option. Most po's will let you slide right now, but some will not.

Where did you read/hear about this? I use them and so far so good, but if it needs an extra .20, I will be adding that.
