Facebook Marketplace is a popular e-commerce platform where users sell unwanted items. As a Marketplace seller, the entire process is fairly easy. But what happens once you’ve made a sale and the buyer has already paid you? If it’s not a local pickup, you’ll need to ship the item to the buyer.
Fortunately, Marketplace has a streamlined shipping label process. You won’t need to write the buyer’s address by hand or guess how much the shipping will cost. Of course, you still have the option of shipping the old-fashioned way, but by using the option to print a pre-paid shipping label, you can ensure that the recipient’s address is correct.
In this article, we’ll show you how to print a Marketplace shipping label using several devices.
