Pay for postage and print shipping labels on eBay

A step-by-step look at eBay labels

Start in My eBay

  1. In the Sold section in My eBay, click "Print shipping label." If you have several items for shipment, click "Print shipping label" on your first item. Then print the shipping label for your next item from the eBay labels page.

  2. All the information you need to create your label is on the Print a shipping label page.2. From My eBay, click on “Purchase and print postage”. Review the order information for the buyer's user ID and transaction details.

  3. The "Ship from" and "Ship to" information is pre-populated with seller and buyer addresses. Click “Edit” to make changes or add a message to your buyer.

  4. Choose your shipping preferences—carrier, service and delivery options—in the “Package Details” section. If you’d like a SKU or item number to appear on the shipping label, check the box and enter it in the field provided. Then select the date you’ll ship.

  5. Click “Print a packing slip” to include a packing slip inside your package with a personal message to your buyer. Many sellers use this as an opportunity to thank their buyers and request feedback on the transaction.

  6. Review all shipping costs and click "Purchase postage.” The first time you print a USPS label you can set up automatic payment with PayPal by checking "Pay and print." For FedEx® label services, eBay pre-pays for you. No need to pay until you receive your monthly statement.

  7. Double-check that your postage purchase and cost is correct. The tracking number and order status is now being automatically uploaded to My eBay and sent to your buyer.

    Review and print your shipping label, manage your shipments, and print your next label.

  8. Confirm that the label in the preview window is correct. If you’re satisfied with it, click “Print postage label” button.

  9. To print another label, click "Ship your next item". To reprint a label, click "Reprint this label." To void a label, click "Void label" and follow the instructions. You have 5 days to void a label. To manage your shipments, click the "Manage your shipments" link.
