    I hope this is the right place for this topic.

    PayPal has now moved its shipping and postal label creation to the the platform ShipStation.

    looks like the minimum fee is $9 monthly.

    I’m just an occasional seller/shipper of records and discs. Buying media mail postage and printing is a nice alternative to PO lines.

    Anyone using PirateShip or recommend one of the other ones?

    I’m located in The States.

    thanks in advance for your opinions

    I have used PirateShip, and it works. But the last time I looked you don't have to pay anything extra to print labels directly from Paypal. They may be using Shipstation's platform, but there is no monthly fee.

    Today when I tried to buy postage and print the label via PayPal I was transferred to Shipstation Terms and Conditions page. I looked at the plans and the basic one is $9 a month. There is a 30 day free trial. I did not see a free option for casual users.

    I have accounts with FedEx and USPS.

    fedex for equipment shipments. Unfortunately direct USPS doesn’t support media Mail purchase.

    Then I would investigate Pirate Ship.
