Purchasing shipping labels in bulk

You can buy and print up to 20 shipping labels at a time from the Orders page in your Shopify admin. If you're in the United States, then you can buy and print up to 50 labels at a time.

The following kinds of orders aren't included when buying shipping labels in bulk:

  • orders that contain only items that do not require shipping
  • orders that don't have a valid shipping address
  • orders that are already fulfilled

If an order has already been partially fulfilled, then only the unfulfilled items are included in the bulk label purchase.

Purchase multiple labels

Edit the shipping labels

If you use a desktop computer, then you can edit multiple shipping labels at the same time. If you use a mobile device, then you can view each label individually and make any necesssary adjustments.

Edit a single shipping label

Edit multiple shipping labels

On desktop, the Create shipping labels page lets you set a value for multiple shipping labels at the same time. For example, you can change the total weight, adjust the shipping service, or enter custom package dimensions and have that vaue apply to multiple labels.

Steps:

  1. From the Create shipping labels page, select the orders that you want to change.
  2. Click the header for the detail of the label that you want to change.
  3. Make the change. If you're changing the weight or shipping service, then click Apply after you make your change.

Remove a label from the bulk purchase

Addressing errors

If there is an issue with a shipping label, then an error icon is displayed next to the label:

  • Warning - A yellow circular icon with an exclamation mark is displayed. This error doesn't prevent you from purchasing the label, but it might causes issues with the shipping carrier or customs.
  • Critical error - A red diamond-shaped icon with an exclmataion mark is displayed. This error prevents you from buying the label, and

Clicking the field with the error icon displays the error message.

If any of your labels have a critical error, then the Review and buy button is deactivated. You need to either fix the error or remove the label from the bulk purchase.
