Paypal shipping to Canada?

I recently tried to ship a small package to a friend in Canada using paypal shipping, but as you probably foresaw, paypal stopped me to say I would need a customs slip. So I had to mail it from the post office (which is very difficult for me to get to).

As I am probably about to start a small WAHM here on DS and already have an interested Canadian customer, I am wondering, if I get a handful of customs slips to keep at home, will I be able to complete the transaction on paypal and just print out the usual postage sheet, adding the customs slip myself? Or do Canadian packages, even if they are under 13 oz, simply need to be taken to the post office?

TIA

For that matter, can I do it at home through the usps website w/o having to take it to the p.o.? I've googled this stuff but am confused. TIA!

You can if you ship priority to Canada but you can't ship first class international through PayPal or USPS.com. Btw first class international is up to 4 pounds.

Oh, alas. Yeah, priority is too expensive to be worth it for my lightweight goods. No wonder I couldn't parse through the info online. Thank you, 5PrincessMommy!

You can ship FC international from home. However you need a service like Endicia or stamps.com to do so. If you're opening a business it is TOTALLY worth it. Then your carrier can pick up all your packages and you never need to go to the PO.

Hmm, Tami, as tempting as that sounds, I only expect to be making about $20/month in extra cash once costs are counted. It's deodorant that is expensive to make in the first place, and I don't really anticipate making or selling more than 4-5 a month. It would be more like a hobby. Thanks for that info though, it may help someone else who's searching for similar information.
