    shipping?

    when im shipping something, is it ok for me to type out my address and print it out and stick it on the shipping box? or do they require you some kind of special shipping label or for you to write it out? i want to just type it out and print it and stick it in because my hand writing is not that good!

    who are you using ?

    USPS ? UPS ? Fed Ex ? DHL ?

    most of those have online labels you can print out,nice and neat,and if you have a scale ,it's even easier.

    You can print something and then just take it to the post office to price it to ship.

    someone just told me you need to also type out your debit/credit card number and also your signature and 3 digit security code
    is this necessary?

    on the outside of the box ? I would NOT do that for sure!

    if anything,put it inside the box only

    no, they dont.

    I work for the usps and stamps are fine. You DO have to either use carrier pickup or drop it off at your local usps though.

    It's certainly ok for you to type out the address as well. i've done that numerous times, to ensure proper delivery.
