  2. After you select the desired services for the label, select the Add to batch button next to the Print button.
  3. Batch Shipping opens in new browser tab or window with the first recipient listed.

    Important: Once you select Pay and Run Batch, the funds for all of the labels are deducted from your postage balance for USPS labels. For USPS, if sufficient funds are not available to cover the cost of the entire batch, the button says Refill instead of Pay and Run Batch. In order to proceed, select Refill and add postage to your account.
  9. Wait while the batch is created. A green check mark means that the label has been generated. A spinner icon means that label is still being processed. A red exclamation mark means that there was an error with that label, which will be explained in the message just below it.
  10. Once all of the labels have been generated, select Print. A PDF containing all of the labels opens.
  11. When you are ready to print all of the labels to your printer, use your browser's print function.
