Hey there, @dex0n
Bo here from Shopify Support!
Great question. Shipping labels are only required if you intend on shipping your products yourself and would like to use Shopify Shipping. Shopify Shipping allows you to print shipping labels from USPS and Canada Post so you can then ship your products using those services, depending on your location. Are you fulfilling your own order or are you dropshipping? You can read up more on buying and printing shipping labels here.
I'd recommend taking a look at our Shopify webinars. These short tutorials takes you through all the basics of creating a store such as adding products, variants, collections, theme changes and pointing a domain to your store. You should be able to sign up here if you would like. We also have a free business course with our Shopify Academy that I would really encourage you to look at if you get a chance.
All the Best,
