Return Shipping Labels

Product returns are a part of every business. Having a hassle-free return process not only impacts customer relations, but also the ability to easily and quickly process returns internally. Return shipping labels ensure fast delivery back to the seller, which enables the seller to process refunds back to the customer as fast as possible.

What Are Return Shipping Labels?

A return shipping label is a pre-paid, pre-addressed postage label that enables customers to return purchased goods back to the seller. The key benefits of a return shipping label are convenience, efficiency and customer satisfaction. When using return shipping labels, customers do not need to add postage since the product seller has already included shipping fees on the shipping label. This eliminates address mistakes, optimizes the return process, and creates a good customer experience. It also allows the seller to control postage costs on returned items as the seller can choose the lowest cost mail class option to have a product returned.

How Do Return Shipping Labels Work?

Typically shipping software is used to create return shipping labels. The seller must select a shipping carrier and mailclass, supply postage funds, and enter the addresses. Return shipping labels feature the customer’s address in the “From” field; the seller’s address in the “To” field; and applicable postage. Once the information is complete, the shipping software will email the customer a printable file of the return shipping label. You may also print a return shipping label to mail it to your customer. Return shipping labels normally do not have a mailing deadline.
