How do I buy a label?

There is a range of buying options, but they all come down to shipping orders one-by-one or in batches.

One-by-one:

If you need to consider how each package will ship, shipping one-by-one is the best way to start. Learn how to create a shipment.

Batches:

Batch shipping is fast, as it allows you to purchase postage for many orders at once. It is best when you:

  • Have many orders ready to ship.
  • Know which orders will ship via the same carrier and service.

Get started with the video: Batching LuLaRoe Orders & Buying Labels

For simple batching instructions, take a look at our step-by-step guide.

TIP: you will apply a single carrier and selection to the batch.

So, we recommend that you first filter your orders. The filters you apply should result in a group of orders that will all ship via the same carrier and service. For example:

  • Filter orders weighing less than 15.9 oz, so that you can ship them via USPS First Class Mail.
  • Filter orders designated Zone 1 - 3 so that you can ship them via USPS Regional Rate.

If you are not sure which carrier services to use, take a look at these guides:
