If you are having trouble using the USPS Shipping Assistant to print your labels after this week’s upgrade, you are not alone.

While many have contacted USPS about the issue, as far as I can tell it hasn’t been fixed yet but there is a work-around for international packages using the program itself while we wait:

1. Include everything in the label as you normally would except don’t include the destination zip code.
2. Click the button to calculate the shipping cost.
3. Add the destination zip code and print as usual.

Thanks so much to jbavarian who apparently signed up for Etsy just to help us out. 🙂
