Preview: Options to customize USPS domestic labels

Label options enable you to control the order information displayed on your shipping label.

Order Number:

The order number is always included on your labels. Select this option if you only wish for the order number to be displayed on labels.

Purchase Order Number

The Purchase Order (PO) number of Amazon Business orders is displayed on domestic shipping labels. For USPS and DHL Global Mail domestic shipping labels, the PO number (if available) will be automatically appended to the order number that is displayed on the shipping label (in the upper-right, above the recipient address).

For UPS and FedEx labels, there are  “Amazon PO” options available on the Label Settings page. Learn more.

List Order Items (SKU):

This option prints a pick list directly on the bottom of the label. The pick list references each of the SKUs in your order.

NOTE: the SKUs displayed on your label are limited to 100 characters. If your order items/products exceed the character limit then "etc" will be displayed. In this instance you might want to generate a more detailed pick list for your order. Learn more about pick lists.

List Order Items (Description):

This option prints a pick list directly on the bottom of the label. The pick list references each of the product descriptions in your order.

NOTE: the descriptions displayed on your label are limited to 100 characters. If your order items/products exceed the character limit then "etc" will be displayed. In this instance you might want to generate a more detailed pick list for your order. Learn more about pick lists.

Carrier Note:

This option prints a bold contents related note directly on the bottom of the label.

NOTE: the message will appear in large text at the bottom of the label. It is limited to 16 characters. The same message will appear on all labels purchased while the setting is in place.
