New shipping Tool ???

I received an email from PayPal indicating  "Now you can save on shipping with PayPal and Canada Post" . Is this a new tool other than shippo which I already signed up for.

Not new.

 

This is PayPal using your Canada Post Solutions for Small Business (formerly Venture One) membership rates to buy shipping from Canada Post.  Been in effect since May.

 

You can get the same rates(*) buying from the Canada Post website -- except you can use PayPal to pay rather than credit card.

 

Canada Post's new Snap Ship service has a 15% extra discount until the end of July (paypal only gets the extra 15% discount for Canadian Expedited parcels)

Interface:

PayPal has been playing around with shipping for years, so their interface is reasonable. Shippo need more design work.

 

Payment:

PayPal is immediate. Shippo is currently billing once a week (or thereabouts). Some people like immediate.

 

 

Cost (until July 31):

 

Small Packet (Air) -- eBay rate through Shippo wins for USA and International. And it looks like you can also buy third-party insurance for Small Packet (Canada Post stopped offering insurance for Small Packet a few ago). Anything else CP's Snap Ship (or PayPal for Expedited Parcel Canada) with the extra 15% discount.

 

 

Cost (starting August 1):

 

Canada

Expedited Parcel -- eBay rate through Shippo wins. 

 

 

United States

Tracked Packet (USA), Expedited Parcel and USA Small Packet -- eBay rates through Shippo are best.

http://community.ebay.ca/t5/Seller-Central/July-rates-eBay-Shippo-vs-Canada-Post-Snap-Ship-vs-PayPal...

 

International

Small Packet (Air) continues as discount winner for Shippo. For other services it doesn't matter whether you pick Shippo, PayPal or Canada Post -- all the same cost online.

The only thing I will add to your post is that Paypal Shipping has still NOT gotten around to adding all 31 destinations offered by Canada Post Tracked Packet. It has only half listed among their countries. So if you need to ship to an international destination via Tracked Packet, you need to check this list to determine whether Paypal Shipping offers it or whether you need to go with Shippo or Snap Ship.

With the last label I purchased on Shippo  I noticed later that day that the amount had already been taken out of my Paypal account so if it isn't immediate, it is fairly quick.
