Default Cant print shipping label using held funds???

So usually with held paypal funds you can use some to print a shipping label via paypal. Right now its not letting me do that. Its saying Shipping not available at this time bla bla..

Anyone else having this problem now.

It also asked me to add a credit card or bankaccount which i did and its trying to take the money from my card instead of paypal held funds balance...

Using held funds to ship is a yes/no thing. You need to pay for the shipping first, then a few minutes later that amount is taken off hold. So if there is not enough in account to cover costs you have to use CC

Default you can not

with held funds you can not print shipping labels from pp of course not thats why it is held. if you are sure the holding will be removed bring the item to the post ship it and get a receipt or send it via ups. but pod is right it normally does not work when the funds "are not available" = "held"

I also get an occassional problem printing a label using USPS/Paypal. It just seems to happen at random....maybe only every couple hundred sales. But if that particular message comes up for a label it rarely goes away, even if I print a bunch more and go back to that transaction. I simply work around it by using the Paypal link to print "off Ebay" sales.

Dont say cannot because its not true. I use to do this all the time and it even says that you can on Paypal website..

Can held funds be used to pay for shipping?

If you print labels and pay for shipping through PayPal or eBay, the cost of shipping will be released from your pending balance shortly after purchase. Printing labels on eBay and PayPal is free. You're charged only the cost of shipping.

It says that on their site but I think it's a play on words, I think what really happens is they deduct the cost from your gift card or available balance then afterwards they reimburse the cost from the held funds, but if there's no money on the giftcard or paypal balance it most likely won't work.

Like i said for the 3rd time. I always did this with all my Paypal accounts, but with one, I cant do it now?

No money in my Paypal except held funds, and I was able to use held funds to print label and they would deduct it from held funds right away

I've done it with a bunch of paypals before too and also did it with other paypals that didn't do it so it's obviously a random thing just like like the 21 day hold lol punk.

Even you point out paypals note, its says clear as day released from your pending balance shortly after purchase

If you are able to do it with zero balance you are lucky. Because its supposed to be after. And anytime I use it I need to pay first. But its paypal, so never no rhyme or reason... But its not supposed to let you use balance. It just releases amount after. But if it works sometimes great. Never has for me. But again, if it doesn't let you, thats the way its supposed to work.

Is there a spot in PayPal menu to use shipping tool for transactions not not paid to that account? All I've seen is the print label beside the actual transaction itself. Thats actually kind of nice. Using a paypal account to pay for shipping is a plus. But damned if I can see how you do it...

I use paypal multi-order shipping, it's an additional feature you download from their site, it's under merchant services, I think. Once you have it you can go into file and click "create new order".

No it's direct from their site, you'll see it just look in the additional services section until you see a link for "multi-order shipping". Can't remember exactly where it's at but it's easy to find and it's free.

excellent. And they never put two and two together shipping for multiple/other paypal accounts? Obviously you cant add tracking from one paypal print label to another right?

No you have to send them the tracking manually to their e-mail and for Amazon I just log back in and type in the tracking that's found on the label.

I got it fixed. PayPal released the funds for me and said " Sorry MR. McRogers for the inconvenience, also we are removing your funds availability hold so everything will be available right away, not sure how this happen when you do 20k a month with us. But dont worry it shouldn't happen again"

I dont know what happen, I do over 20k a month with Paypal not from Ebay pure profit from my ebooks and other websites and blogs. I also do another 10k not profit , with my merchant account. I try to mix it up
