You can use eBay and PayPal to create shipping labels and packing slips for items you've sold on eBay.
Use eBay to print US Postal Service and FedEx labels, or to print several USPS labels at once. Use PayPal to print USPS and UPS labels.
Printing labels on eBay is free. You only need to pay the shipping cost and the cost of any shipping services you choose, such as signature confirmation.
This page covers how to ship items you've sold on eBay. Printing return shipping labels for eBay hassle-free returns is a different process. Learn more about hassle-free returns.
