    I have not had any issues yet with this in the year or so we have been doing this, but since yesterday, I have been trying to print a label via PayPal's "Print Shipping Label" for a fellow TFWer who is in Singapore, and it keeps telling me "PayPal Shipping is not available. We apologize for the inconvenience."

    I am still able to load the Mutli-Shipping tool and use that for stateside packages, but am unable to do International, so I have to go to USPS to do the label. Has anyone else have any issues recently?

    It tends to happen if there's any strange characters in the name. Like umlauts over o's (like Motörhead) or a ç, or anything like that. Try replacing them with the "normal" English alphabet letters, tends to fix it.

    As far as I can tell, it had none of those, just a # for part of the address itself.

    Well, I printed/paid for postage with my CC via USPS.com so I got it squared away, but I was just curious if anyone else was experiencing it.

    Possibly a problem on PayPal's end then. Maybe try getting in touch with customer service.
