You needed to figure that out BEFORE you listed.


Once your listing states USPS - you need to ship USPS.

You can ASK the buyer if it is ok with them if you ship via UPS - but many buyers DO NOT LIKE delivery via UPS.


If the buyer is OK with you shipping via UPS ....

You can print labels via UPS website - then manually enter the tracking # at ebay and at PayPal.

As for your current active listings, I think USPS will be the best choice.


If you asking for new listings, you need to click Add more options in the shipping method choice area.
