anyone else having problems with pp not being able to print shipping label

I have been trying since yesterday to print out a shipping label and pp keeps telling me it can't connect to usps. Anyone else having a problem with this and does anyone know what else I can do? I tried going to usps and printing there but the option I want to ship at (cheapest) want let me do it online

thanks

Re: anyone else having problems with pp not being able to print shipping label

I was able to print last night through PP when the usps site said they were unable to print labels... of course that's _after_ I already paid them Now I have to wait for a frigging refund from usps.

Their pricing was updated (from the FRE) I put (Paypal) but I still wish they would add the padded FRE choice.

I have tried both last night and this morning, and have not been able to get anything to print. I printed through USPS click and ship (same price I believe).

Paypal sent out an email saying that since "Parcel Post" was being discontinued that if you choose it, you will get an error message until they're able to update it and it take effect.

"Parcel post will no longer be offered. PayPal customers who attempt to select Parcel Post may experience an error message for a few days until the service is removed."

Thank you for this. I hadn't gotten an email and I was getting so frustrated with PP shipping.
