How to Get Free Shipping Labels
by Lori Boyer
You're a business owner who’s just made a sale, congratulations! But, your job isn’t over yet. Now it’s time to actually get the item to your customer. You’ll need packaging supplies, shipping labels, and a carrier to deliver the package. Shipping logistics can feel overwhelming, especially as your business grows, but with the right plan in place, you’ll have a successful shipping operation in no time.
First, you’ll need a way to get shipping labels for your packages. This is arguably the most important part, as this is what provides the carrier with all of the necessary shipping information, like:
- Recipient’s address
- Sender’s address
- Shipping method
Without good shipping labels, packages would not get where they needed to go, and you’d be left with unsatisfied customers and a poor reputation.
Free Shipping Labels Help Lower Shipping Costs
Now that you understand the importance of shipping labels, you’re probably wondering what the cost looks like. We know what you’re thinking: “This is going to be too expensive.”
Lucky for you, most carriers offer shipping labels to business owners for free. For example, USPS, UPS, FedEx, and DHL all provide free shipping labels to their customers.
Using free shipping labels provided by the carrier can save time and money for businesses and individuals who ship frequently. It can also help ensure that the package is properly identified and delivered to the intended recipient, which can help reduce the risk of lost or misdirected shipments.
When you’re not spending money printing and designing shipping labels, it frees up the rest of your shipping budget to focus on branded packaging and ensuring your customers have a great delivery experience.
