Create a Prepaid Return Label from SHIPMENT HISTORY

If your customer needs to return an item to you, ShippingEasy allows you to purchase and generate a prepaid label. Learn more about Prepaid Return labels and how to refund unused labels.

You can email a return label to a customer if an email address is included in the order details and the option to Send a return shipping email to the buyer under the Notifications tab has been enabled.

Merchants with carefully crafted brands can customize their Return Shipping emails. Learn how to save a new email template to your store. If you would like to be up and running in a snap, ShippingEasy offers a default prepaid return shipment email.

Prepaid return labels will not physically print when the option to automatically send return shipment notifications has been enabled. The labels may be reprinted from the SHIPMENT HISTORY print actions menu.

Customers can only receive an email confirmation if an email address is included in their order details.

Depending on how many return labels you need, there are a couple of places within the app where returns can be created from:

Prepaid Returns Not Always Available

Return labels are not available within ShippingEasy for:
