Anticipate, Navigate, and Mitigate: The Art of Canceling Shopify Shipping Labels

Why Would You Need to Cancel a Shopify Shipping Label?

Picture this: you're navigating through the hustle and bustle of your thriving online business, printing shipping labels for orders flying left, right, and centre, when - winter is coming! Not actual winter, of course. This is more like a 'Game of Thrones'- level plot twist. You've printed the wrong shipping label or, heavens forbid, you've made an error in the shipping address. And there it is, staring at you from a pile of otherwise perfectly labeled packages. Now, what do you do? You cancel it, Sherlock!

Important Things to Remember while Canceling a Shipping Label on Shopify

Before you start jubilantly hitting the ‘cancel’ button, there are some critical details to remember. For instance, you can only cancel a shipping label that hasn’t been used, and you have only up to 30 days to detonate – I mean, cancel – the ticking time bomb of an incorrect label. That paper retraction must be made within an hour after purchasing the label. After an hour, we are sorry, but it has officially entered the realm of 'no can do' and is etched in history.

The Step-by-Step Guide to Canceling a Shopify Shipping Label

Now that you've braced yourself with the essential facts let's get down to brass tacks. How to cancel a shipping label on Shopify? Here is your ‘escape the wrong label’ roadmap:

Step 1: Go to the specific order screen. Remember that exact order where Jon Snow ended up at the Dorne instead of Winterfell? Go there.

Step 2: Find the shipping label that is about to make you the queen or king of seven kingdoms, I mean errors. Navigate to the 'More actions' menu and select 'Cancel Label.'

Step 3: Don't be afraid to put your royal seal on it — confirm that you want to cancel the label.

Take a moment to let out the breath you’ve been holding. You’ve successfully canceled the incorrect shipping label. But what about the innocently spent money? Don’t you worry. Shopify loves to keep its merchants happy, so they will refund you the cost of the cancelled label within about three weeks.
