Paypal is down, I need help!

Do you have problems with Paypal and not know how to fix them? Well guess what, I do. Well most of the time.

If you are getting errors like this:

We are currently unable to connect to United States Postal Service (USPS). No label was generated and the funds for this transaction will be credited to your PayPal account within 24 hours. Please try again later.

There are several things that could be wrong.

Make sure to check and see if your bidder gave you their first and last name, and that they are in the address. This fixes the problem most of the time.

If that does not work, check to make sure that all of the address is spelled out. For example, if something says St.Louis, make sure it says Saint Louis. Take the period out of things like St. and Ave.

Make sure that the address you are shipping to is clean and has nothing weird in it. If fixing all of these problems does not make your error message go away try this:

There is a back door to PayPal so that you send a package to anyone, whether they gave you a payment or not. All you have to do is go here :https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_ship-now

Just manually write in the address and it should ship no problem. The back door to PayPal will solve all of your problems, unless PayPal goes down completely.

So next time you have a problem with PayPal, bookmark that page, (or this one) and you will be able to ship your packages with ease.
