Printing Shopify Shipping labels and customs forms

You can print your Shopify Shipping labels and customs forms directly from your Shopify admin. This can save time at the post office or during shipment pickups.

To print shipping labels, you need to use a desktop printer or a Shopify-supported label printer.

You can print a test shipping label to make sure that your printer is set up properly. You aren't charged for printing a test label.


After you buy a shipping label, you need to print it and attach it to the outside of the package you want to ship.

If you're shipping internationally, then your package might need a separate customs declaration form too.

If you need to change the format of a shipping label after you've purchased it, then void the label, and then repurchase the label with the correct label size. The method for repurchasing a label depends on whether you are in Australia, Canada, or the United States.


If you're shipping to an international destination, then you need to complete a customs declaration form. Some mail types require that you print a separate customs form for your shipment, and others include the form on the standard shipping label:

  • If you use Priority Mail International or Priority Express Mail International, then you need to print a separate customs form as well as the shipping label and attach them both to the outside of your package.
  • If you use First Class Package International Service, Priority Mail Flat International flat rate envelopes, or Priority Mail International small flat rate boxes, then the customs declaration is included in the shipping label itself.


The customs declaration form is printed with the shipping label.
