In the hectic world of selling on eBay, there’s a lot you have to get right. As a result, mistakes can happen. Sometimes, those mistakes involve shipping labels. Whether you’ve misplaced or accidentally spilled water on a shipping label, you don’t need to worry, as eBay has a built-in feature that lets you reprint shipping labels easily. In this post, you’ll learn how to reprint a shipping label on eBay, and the restrictions around printing new labels.
Why Reprint Shipping Labels?
Without shipping labels, there’s no way your products will reach your customers. Shipping labels have all the information needed to make sure the package reaches the right destination. However, mistakes happen and there are times you may need to reprint a label. For example, maybe the label got damaged when you were printing it, or your printer ran out of ink. There’s also a chance you could have lost your label or accidentally damaged it some other way. If that sounds like you, don’t worry, eBay lets you reprint shipping labels as long as it’s within 24 hours from the time the first label was printed. Unfortunately, if you’re beyond that timeframe, then you’ll need to purchase and print a new one from scratch.
How to Reprint a Shipping Label in eBay
Step 1. Log in to Your eBay Account
The first thing you need to do is log in to your eBay account. To do this, simply navigate to the eBay website and click on the “Sign In” button in the top left corner of the page. Then, you’ll need to enter your email address and password.
Step 2. Open Up Your eBay Seller Hub
Once you’re logged into your account, click on the “Sell” menu option at the top of the page. This takes you to the “Seller’s Hub”, which is where you manage every aspect of your eBay store. Here, you can manage your orders, create new listings, and, of course, print shipping labels.
Step 3. Navigate to Your eBay Listings
Once you’re inside your “Seller Hub” you’ll want to click on the “Listings” option. This is where you can view all of your product listings. When you click on the “Listings” menu option, there will be a drop-down menu. Simply click on the “Shipping labels” option.
Step 4. Find Your Order and Click Reprint
Now, you can view all of your recent orders in the “Shipping labels” section. All you need to do is click on the “Actions” button that’s next to your item and then click “Reprint Label” from the drop-down list.
Step 5. Confirm and Print Your Label
Then, all you need to do is print the label, just as you would any other document. However, before you click print, make sure you’ve selected the correct printer and all the settings are correct. After you’ve confirmed these, then proceed with printing your new shipping label.
Sometimes, it helps to “look over someone’s shoulder.” Fortunately, YouTuber Abel XL lets you do just that as he reprints a shipping label on his Ebay seller’s account.
Costs of Reprinting Shipping Labels
It’s important to note that eBay doesn’t charge you for reprinting a shipping label. You’re only charged once for a label when you create it the first time. However, if you create a completely new label, then that will count as a separate charge. If you didn’t use the original label, or it wasn’t printed correctly, then you can request a refund from eBay.
Closing Thoughts: How to Reprint a Shipping Label in eBay
As you’ve learned, reprinting a shipping label is a fairly straightforward process. Plus, when you accidentally lose or damage a shipping label, it’s usually only a mistake that you’ll make once. Finally, it’s worth mentioning again that eBay only allows for reprinting a label within the 24 hour window. If you’re outside of that, then you’ll need to purchase a new label.
