EasyPost provides its customers with a simple interface to create, purchase and print shipping labels for 100+ shipping carriers.
Start by signing up here for a FREE EasyPost account and get access to carriers like USPS or FedEx at up to 88% off the retail price.
Once logged in, it is recommended to first fund your shipping account but you can simply follow the steps below to checkout with a credit card and get your first shipping label.
Step 1: Navigate to Buy A Label page
Click the Buy A Label button in the upper right hand corner of your EasyPost Dashboard.
Step 2: Addresses
Fill out your Sender Info, Return To (if different from Sender Info) and Recipient address and contact information as prompted in the screen.
EasyPost will automatically verify your addresses using its USPS CASS certified address verification logic and may recommend minor reformatting. Be sure to review these recommendations to ensure successful delivery.
Optional: Save either Sender or Return addresses for future shipping labels by checking the box for Set as default for future packages.
Step 3: Customs information (optional)
Note: Customs information is mandatory when shipping across international borders. EasyPost will only prompt the user to fill out this information if the Ship From and Recipient addresses will result in cross-border transit. i.e United States to Canada etc.
Fill out mandatory Customs Information and Package Contents information for your shipment.
Next, check the box to certify and enter your name in the Signature field before proceeding.
For further support on Customs requirements, EasyPost recommends you follow the USPS standards when shipping internationally.
Step 4: Parcel & label options
Fill out your package Length, Width, Height, and Weight then select your preferred Label Format (PDF, PNG, etc.) for printing.
You may also use Add Advanced Options for less common scenarios such as requiring a signature upon delivery or declaring Hazardous Materials (Hazmat).
Step 5: Select carrier & service
Only carriers and their services which are active on your account and valid for your package specifications will be shown along with the pricing information and the carrier transit estimations, if known.
Check the box on the left of the Carrier column to make your selection.
Insurance covers up to $5000 against loss, theft or damage of your package. Use the Insure Shipment panel to input the value of the contents in the package for a small fee and protect your package!
Step 6: Checkout
If you have already funded your EasyPost Wallet on your account (recommended), then there is no prompt for a credit card and instead the funds will be debited from your EasyPost Wallet immediately and your label will be ready to print!
If your EasyPost Wallet is not funded yet, you will be prompted to input your credit card information. Proceed with the payment to receive your printable shipping label in the format you selected.
