How do I prepare for holiday shipping?

Take a look at our resources:

2022 Shipping Deadlines

Be ready for shipping deadlines! We've tracked down the shipping deadlines by service level for USPS, UPS, and FedEx. Keep in mind, that your packages need to be with the carrier (not just label created!) by their stated deadlines for delivery before the holidays.

How do I schedule a package pickup?

During the busiest time of year, we hope you'll be shipping out more packages each day than normal! Save yourself some time and schedule a package pickup in Shippo.

How do I print an end-of-day shipping manifest?

Since you'll be shipping so many holiday orders, your carrier may require an end-of-day manifest. Shippo has got you covered! Just remember, you must manifest on the same calendar date that you create your shipping labels. For all the specifics, see Manifests and SCAN Forms.


How do I refund a label?

During the holiday season you might find the need to refund a label you didn’t use. We make it easy to request a refund directly from your shipments page.

Here’s a step-by-step process to refund a label.


What is a Pre-Authorization charge?

When keeping track of charges during the holiday season, Shippo does our best to keep you informed of any billing changes and charges.

When a new credit card is added to an account as a method of payment, Shippo uses a pre-authorization hold of $1 to ensure a valid payment method has been added. This charge is immediately reversed, however, it may take a few business days to see this refunded in your bank account.

You can learn more about billing for accounts here.
