You can use eBay and PayPal to create shipping labels and packing slips for items you've sold on eBay.
Use eBay to print US Postal Service and FedEx labels, and PayPal to print USPS and UPS labels. You can also use eBay to print several USPS labels at once.
Printing labels on eBay is free. You only need to pay the shipping cost and the cost of any other services you choose.
The information on this page is for items you've sold on eBay and need to ship to a buyer. Return shipping labels through eBay hassle-free returns use a different process. Learn more about Hassle-free returns: Using the eBay returns process.
Printing labels and packing slips on eBay can save you time, effort, and money.
Click My eBay at the top of most eBay pages. You may need to sign in.
Click Sold on the left side of the page in the Sell section.
Find the item you want to ship, and then select the Print shipping label link from the More actions drop-down menu.
Note: For UPS labels, you'll be taken to PayPal. Log in to your PayPal account.
Make sure that your address and the buyer's address on the shipping label are correct.
We may complete item and other information for you based on your listing and the registration information for you and the buyer.
Select your shipping carrier (USPS, UPS, or FedEx) from the Carrier drop-down menu in the package details section.
Select your shipping method from the Service drop-down menu.
Enter your package details, including package type, weight, and dimensions.
Select any additional services that you want to add. (Fees may apply.)
If you're shipping with USPS and your transaction is $750 or more, Signature Confirmation is selected for you. You can remove this option, but keep in mind that requiring a signature at delivery helps protect you if your buyer doesn't receive the item.
Click the button to complete your label.
When your label is ready to print, click the Print postage label button. The printer control window appears.
Make any selections and then click Print.
You can also choose to print your labels either as images or PDFs. To change your label printing preferences, click Printer label and receipt preferences on the Purchase and print postage page.
Note for Firefox users:
When your label is ready to print, click the Print postage label button. A new Firefox window appears.
In the new PDF label window, click the printer icon at the top right of the page.
In the Print dialogue box, select your printer from the Name: drop-down menu.
Click the OK button to print your label.
Instead of clicking on the Print postage label button, Firefox users can also click directly on the printer icon in the PDF of the label in the Print postage label window. When the Print dialogue box appears, select your printer and click OK.
If you're shipping more than one item using USPS, you can create and print up to 50 shipping labels at the same time.
Click My eBay at the top of most eBay pages.
In the Sell section on the left side of the page, click Awaiting shipment.
Select your items, and then click Print shipping labels at the top of the page.
Click Continue printing.
On the next page, enter any missing information, such as item weight.
Make any additional selections in the Delivery Options section.

Click Review and Pay when you're finished.
If you want to print Shipment Confirmation Acceptance Notice (SCAN) form for the USPS, select that option.
Review the information on the page and click Pay with PayPal.
Click Print shipping labels.
You can manage labels you've already printed from the Shipping Labels section of My eBay. Here you can also track your shipments, see shipment details, reprint labels, void labels, print more labels, or print a packing slip.
Click Shipping labels on the left side of the page in the Sell section. The Shipping labels link also appears in Selling Manager and Selling Manager Pro.
You can reprint, void, print more labels, or print a packing slip by selecting the option next to the label.
You can reprint a label up to 10 times, but you can only reprint labels up to 24 hours after you first created and printed the label.
If you want to print multiple labels for several packages in the same shipment, don't use this option. Instead, print another label.
If you're shipping an order in multiple packages (for example, a lamp base in one box and the lampshade in another), you can create and print more than one label for the same order.
You can change the shipping service, and your PayPal account is billed for the cost of the additional label.
When you void a label, your PayPal account is credited for shipping and any other charges within 14 to 21 days.
You can void the shipping label and insurance up to 5 days after you first create and print a label.
FedEx labels are only charged when the package is delivered to your buyer. You don't need to void an unused FedEx label.
A packing slip is a receipt summarizing your sale on eBay.
To print a packing slip, first create a shipping label. If you don't want to create a shipping label, you can print the order details to use as a packing slip.
Click My eBay
at the top of most eBay pages. You may be asked to sign in.
Find the item you want to print a packing slip for and click View order details next to the item.
Note: You may need to click the More actions drop-down menu to find the View order details option.
On the Order details page, click Printer version on the top right side of the page.
Print the page.
Once you've printed your shipping label and prepared your package, you can schedule a pickup or drop off your package.

and any other packages for free with your regular mail service.
