eBay Shipping Label help
For the first time, I am sending a priority package to Canada. It printed out 2 pages, each with 2 forms. 3 of which are identical.
What do I do here? I never send anything Priority with eBay labels.
Whenever I send internationally (or used to) I always take the forms and box into the post office.
The worker puts one (or two) in a plastic sleeve they attach to the box, and the post office keeps the other form (maybe you get the third, can't remember). And they do the customs stampy. Plus the worker eyeballs it to make sure everything's ok.
I don't think you can get by with plopping the forms on the box yourself & just handing it off to the postal carrier. To be on the safe side (& make sure you didn't do any boo-boos which will get the package caught up) you should really run down to the post office to tidy up, even if you pay on your computer.
Also, if you don't go down there and actually can do it all from home (I'm a bit rusty), you do have to insert the forms in a plastic sticky envelope sleeve designed for this specifically, you absolutely can't just tape the forms on like a regular label.
You need to have a regular generic address label taped on the package (a to and from) as well as the envelope sleeve with forms, but again, it's been awhile since I dinked with it. I can't remember if paypal prints that for you or not ...I suck at helping info...
