STRIPE PAYMENTS and postage shipping labels - can you print a shipping label through Stripe and when is it safe to ship your item?

Hi! We just had our first sale on Bonanza using Stripe. Can you print shipping labels through Stripe? Also, can you get the same postage discount that you get when you use Paypal? We have printed labels before on Paypal, but not sure if you can and how to do it on Stripe? Finally, when is it safe to ship, if the payment says “succeeded”, then you should ship the item? Is the payment in your Stripe account until you transfer it? Thanks for your help.

No, you cannot print shipping through Stripe. I do it in paypal and then enter the tracking here. Use the “Manage muli-order shipping” link and then the Create label link.

Once stripe informs of the sale, ship your items (the credit card validation only comes though if everything checks out), otherwise bonanza would never have informed you of the sale

The payment for the first time will have about a 7-10 day wait before sent to your checking account, afterwards it will be sent the next business day if that is what you wish. (Mine is set-up to Automatic every day..can be set for weekly or monthly)
Mine is usually sent to my checking account every 1-3 days. I just had a purchase about 2 hrs ago (9:30pm) and Stripe already has it in transit to my will show there tomorrow. You can set it for manual payout if you wish

Since I have added stripe my sales increased and about 75% are now stripe (counting here and on my website)

I signed up for Stripe a couple of days after it was available for all sellers. I had a sale through it within a couple of days and so far, about half of my customers use it.

I uses the Stamps postage available through Bonanza. I keep a Shipping fund balance that pays for all the postage.

My sales at my 3 booths have also increased since I added Stripe.

You can also purchase labels using PirateShip – same lower shipping costs as PayPal, and it’s free.

I don’t know anything about Stripe but heard 1 seller complaining on Etsy that if there is an issue, Stripe will not be as helpful as Paypal is. Just wondering if anyone ever had an issue with a customer using Stripe?

I’ve been using Pirate Ship for months now and love it. The CS is wonderful. Sorry my last post nested incorrectly.
