You can use USPS Click-n-ship to ship the PFRE's if your post office is that anal, but the easier solution is to just stick an extra stamp of the appropriate denomination (15 or 20 cents, I believe) onto your paypal-printed label. That will work just fine.

Also - please don't confuse the Tyvek priority envelopes with the padded flat rate. The former flat rate at all, they are weight-based.
Yeah, they must be super anal, I had 3 returned to me in one week and never used them again. Yeah the Click n ship is just an extra step I don't have time for (well, right now because it's still Black Friday shipping crazieness). Thanks... this did explain. I wish PP would add more options.

This is good to know. Maybe I've gotten lucky and none of the hundreds of buyers/traders have ever complained to me, even though they got stuck with the extra costs!!

I always add extra stamps on my package to make up for the actual flat rate.
