Print Discounted Shipping Labels at Home with Ecwid

8 min read

Wish you could streamline your shipping to save more time (and money)? Now you can print discounted shipping labels right from your Ecwid Control Panel and save time and money on US domestic and international shipping costs with USPS.

No more waiting in line at the post office — just print your labels at home and drop them at your front door for your postal worker to grab on their regular route.

Print. Stick. And send. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Why Use Ecwid’s Discounted Shipping Labels

Unless you make your money on digital products exclusively, shipping labels are probably a critical component of your store’s fulfillment process. Some other ways you might describe shipping labels include: confusing, expensive (especially for international sellers), and time-consuming.

A mistake in the address, the wrong product weight, or any number of other typos can mean extra fees, delayed delivery, and even lost customers.

To help our small businesses avoid these missteps (and just generally make shipping more pleasant for everyone), we launched Discount Shipping Labels — an Ecwid service that allows you to print package labels right from your control panel and at the lowest possible cost.

Here are the highlights:

  • It’s cheaper. We use the collective power of Ecwid merchants to save your budget on domestic and international shipping costs with USPS. The latter is especially helpful for international sellers as shipping abroad can be rather expensive. Not anymore!
  • It’s faster. Skip the post office visits to spend less time on shipping labels, and more time on … whatever you want!
  • It’s convenient. Everything happens in the Ecwid admin. You don’t need to have a 3rd-party account to order the shipping labels. No need to remember access credentials and share credit card information.
  • It’s automated. The shipping labels are automatically prefilled to save you time and avoid typos.

How to Print Labels

You can find the shipping labels tool in “order details.”

To print a shipping label for an order:

  1. Log in to your Ecwid store, and go to My Sales → Orders → View Order.
  2. Click the “Buy shipping label” link in the right column to go to the shipping label settings.
  3. On the right, in the Shipping details section, click Buy shipping label.
  4. Before purchasing a shipping label, you can select the package type provided by the carrier.
  5. If you’re shipping internationally, fill in the Customs Declaration and click Continue.
  6. Select a shipping service.
  7. Specify your printer settings.
  8. Click the “Buy shipping label” button to purchase and print your new shipping label.

Keep in mind that when shipping internationally via USPS, all customs duties are paid by the receiver. You don’t have to pay customs duties.

Merchant’s voice

Read what real merchants are saying about our Shipping Labels tool.

The shipping labels tool has been a game changer for me! Some background information, I work for a non-profit but I work from home, so my home has become the “fulfillment center” for our online orders. Typically I have to package the order and drive to USPS to print the label. But now, I am able to get our orders out much more quickly because I no longer have to go to the post office. Our USPS mailman just picks up the order during his regular route!Alexis M, Lifeline Animal Project

 

Loving this feature, it saves me so much time. I just click “buy shipping,” and I’m done. I personally wouldn’t change a thing … Super easy to use too.Uriel B, Rbia Shades
