When you print your labels thru Ebay, the payment is applied to your PayPal balance regardless of whether it is pending.  On the print page you will see an option to 'Pay Later' (something to that effect).  This will allow you to print your labels, and once the funds become available, PayPal will then charge your account.

 

Once your buyer pays and the money is in PayPal, even though YOU cannot access it, the Shipping Label function can.  Your buyers do not have to wait.  Good Luck!

You may use pending funds to pay for shipping

 

“If you print shipping labels on eBay (USPS domestic or First Class international), up to $15.00 of your buyer's funds will be available immediately to cover shipping costs for any order less than $50.00.

 

For any order with a total cost that exceeds $50.00, up to 30% of the funds from your buyer will be available immediately to cover shipping costs.

 

If you print shipping labels on PayPal and select USPS postage, you'll need to pay for shipping when you print the label but the reimbursement will be deposited back to your PayPal account within 24 hours.

 

Funds from your buyer won't be made available in advance to cover shipping costs for items sent through UPS or Canada Post.”

 

That is quoted from this help page:
