When trying to print shipping labels using the new ebay format, I constantly get "unable to retrieve shipping label, error 10027". It takes retrying 6-8 times to get a label to print. Everything was simple until they put FedEx as an option.

Found this answer on another post and it worked for me: Go back to the PayPal email you received with the payment info. Click on the transaction id link (currently, at top right of email). This will take you to the PayPal site (if you are logged in. If not logged in, do so and then you will get to the transaction info.. At the bottom of the page, there is a link to print postage. Purchase it from there.

Ebay should hire someone to fix this issue. I didn't have this problem last year at all and it didn't start till they started updating and changing their pages around.
For all the people who sell on ebay and pay a fee to do so and have trouble printing the label, ebay should reimburse us for the time we wasted trying to print a label that should take minutes to do and ends up taking a half hour or longer.
This is time we could be using listing more products. Someone there needs to fix this. The forums are full of sellers with the same issue as this. This should be taken as a priority issue.
