What is an integrated label?
An integrated label is a sticky label that is included in an A4 sheet. They are usually used to print invoices or packing lists and a shipping label on the same sheet.
An integrated label can include more than one sticky label - often a shipping label that is used by the sender and a returns label for the recipient to use if they wish to send something back.
What are the benefits of an integrated label?
Save money - you don't need a label printer
Integrated labels use a single sheet of A4 for the invoice as well as the sticky shipping label so it means you can use your regular home printer rather than buying another label printer. It also saves you time as you don’t have to switch between printing on regular and adhesive paper.
Stay organised - keep the shipping labels and documents together
Because the invoice or packing slip are on the same sheet as the shipping label not only do you save time matching invoices with labels, they can also be kept together until you peel off the label and put the sheet inside the parcel - therefore there is less room for errors in sending the wrong parcel to the wrong address.
Convenient - include a returns label
If you include a returns label as part of your integrated label it also makes it a lot simpler for a customer to send their items back.
How to print integrated labels from the eBay website
Once you've logged into your eBay account, go to Selling Manager and select 'sold'.
Select the orders that you want to print by ticking the box next to each one, then click on 'despatch action' and choose 'Print postage labels or invoices'.
Click on 'Invoice/packing slip', and then 'continue'.
You can then select the right printer and click 'print'. The invoice will print out with the customer's address on the integrated label.
