Basicly I want to ship it out tomorrow. I am not sure if what i read was correct. If I chose that option. Which i did, i wasn't clean on the 21 day holding until after I printed the label. Does that mean that postage will be paid for when i get the payment released. OR will I still have to pay when I go to the post office tomorrow. Either way it is getting shipped tomorrow just need to know if i need to stop off at the bank first. LOL

I've never had a hold on my account but my understanding is the payment for the shipping label is taken out of your paypal account as soon as you do the label - even with the hold. Then the rest of the money is on hold until 3 days after the item is delivered - if you shipped with delivery confirmation (which you should to protect yourself).

you printed a label, so you have DC---the money was taken out of paypal for the label, so as long as the weight was correct the postage should be correct and you should not have to pay any more at the PO......your money will be released about 3 days after that DC says delivered.

As long as you have a postal / digital scale and you are sure the weight and package size is accurate to the info you put in the listing (and that transferred over to the label) - then the postage should be spot-on correct.
