    Hey so I had my first large order today of 85 units, I am shipping with USPS, and I have all the customers info in a csv file. Is there any way that I can print labels without manually copying them into click-n-ship. I downloaded USPS shipping assistant printed my 80 labels taped them to the boxes but postage was not paid. I took them to the post office and they said they would have to redo everything... and it would cost more if I do not pay online.

    Spent a bunch of time doing all this and now I still have the boxes in my car!:censored:

    I am now ordering a pick up and putting the customer info into click-n-ship manually... is there a way around this?

    You can do a batch via paypal. I used to do that. It's much faster and you'll get the benefit of buying postage online. :)

    just loaded it looks great thanks, I am about to upload the csv file, just a quick question. When I was placing the orders thru click-n-ship I was getting a percentage back on my credit card because mastercard has some deal with USPS, will it still be USPS billing me or paypal?

    Been trying to find a way to do this but it looks to be an issue, I am on the phone with paypal now, I will update when they tell me what to do in case others have problems with paypal multi ship payment.

    So in order to pay with your credit card you need to remove you debit account from the paypal. The shipping application by default charges your paypal account balance > bank account if no balance > credit card.

    Now my personal problem comes in at this point. I removed my bank account and attempted to pay, but for some reason my transaction would not go through. They told me that paypal has their own evil bot which apparently has a bugs when it comes to shipping labels. Since I tried to process payment multiple times they labeled the transaction as high risk and will not let it go through. My account was forwarded to the person in charge of removing this bug from the account, because it is not suppose to label shipping labels as high risk transactions. Unfortunately the person that handles this has went home for the day and wil not be able to do anything until tomorrow.

    I am signing up for the free trial and endicia.com they also do batch shipments, wish me luck, this has been a post office nightmare, I am definitely switching to fulfillment by amazon.

    Just want to share my frustration this day cannot get any more difficult, now endicia does not work for me either back to manually imputing info through click-n-ship

    Just wasted my whole day on nothing, guess thats why they have that saying the best shortcut is the route that you are most familiar with!
