  • Considerations for buying shipping labels

    Review the following considerations when buying shipping labels:

    • Shopify Shipping doesn't support DDP (delivered duty paid). If you collect duties and import taxes at checkout, then you can't purchase a Shopify Shipping label for orders where duties have been collected. You need to purchase the label externally or refund the order.
    • If you're shipping internationally using Shopify Shipping, then your shipment's declared value can't exceed 2,500 USD.
    • You can print your shipping labels during the label purchase flow or from the Shipping labels page at any time after you purchase your labels.

    Suggested shipping services

    When you buy Shopify Shipping labels, a Suggested shipping service might be automatically selected. This Suggested service is based on services that you've used for similar orders in the past. A Suggested service is available for more orders after you purchase more Shopify Shipping 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 necessary adjustments.

    Edit a single shipping label

    1. From the Create shipping labels page, click the field that you want to edit.
    2. Make the changes to the cell.

    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 value apply to multiple labels.


    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 total weight or shipping service, then click Apply after you make your change.

    Remove a label from the bulk purchase

    1. From the Create shipping labels page, select the order that you want to remove.
    2. Click the X order selected drop-down menu, and then click Remove X order.

    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 exclamation mark is displayed. This error prevents you from buying the label, but after you fix the error, you can continue with your label purchase.

    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.
