How are my customers notified of the return shipment?

If ShippingEasy emails my customers, will I be able to print the label?

Yes, but the label will not be sent to your print queue after purchase. Rather, you can opt to reprint it from your SHIPMENT HISTORY.

How do I resend a return shipment email/label?

On the SHIPMENT HISTORY page, select the order you would like to resend the information for. Then click the Resend/Retry button at the top. From there, Choose Resend Email to myself of Resend Email to my customer.

Can I create a prepaid return label for any order in my SHIPMENT HISTORY?

Can I cancel a USPS prepaid return shipping label for a refund?

Yes, a prepaid USPS return label can be cancelled for a refund in ShippingEasy, but it must have been purchased within the last 30 days and never included on a USPS SCAN form. Learn more about cancelling a label for a refund.

Can I get a refund on postage for returned items?

No. Learn more.

When does my USPS prepaid return shipping label expire?

A prepaid return label for a USPS shipment is valid until there is a price change that results in the postage paid being the wrong amount. If a price change occurs before the label is used, the shipment could be delivered with postage due or returned to the sender for more postage.

Since USPS is known to recycle tracking numbers, we recommend using a USPS prepaid return shipping label within 90 days. This should prevent the tracking number from being recycled before the label is used.

Amazon has strict guidelines that must be followed. Learn more.
