Adding IOSS number to UPS and USPS Shipping Labels?

Hello!

I ship internationally to the EU and have an IOSS number. I added it to my account under the taxes section, but how do I get my IOSS number on the shipping labels purchased through Shopify? I don't want want my customers to be charged for taxes twice, but there doesn't seem to be a field for the IOSS number on the customs forms, and I am not seeing any "account management" settings specifically for shipping carriers. I don't just want to write it on the box because that seems like a security issue. Any ideas?

 

UPS (DHL & FedEx as well), will not show the IOSS number on a shipping label.

Since August 2021, European commission added new regulation, and asked  carriers to not show the IOSS number even on the customs invoice.
IOSS number should be used only "electronically" by carriers for customs clearance.

Yes, I understand  they will physically not show on the label, but how do I add that number to my account with the various shipping carriers? For example, I use UPS and USPS labels purchased through Shopify. There is nowhere that I see on Shopify to add my IOSS number to a UPS or USPS account. So there's not way of telling UPS or USPS that taxes have already been collected and are under our IOSS number. 

For FedEx, I do not purchase labels through Shopify, so I just told my FedEx account manager to add the IOSS number to my account. But there's not an "account person" for USPS and UPS for labels purchased through Shopify. 

I guess that Shopify will need to add a field in their shipping settings.

If you are interested to ship with your fedex account, our App, Ship&co,
does support IOSS number.

I'm having the same issue! We purchase our labels through Shopify and I'm not sure how to add the VAT# or connect the IOSS number when printing shipping labels through Shopify. Please let us know if you find a solution!

Sadly, there's no solution at the moment.

If you have a European VAT number, EORI or IOSS number and use Shopify Shipping, you'll need to wait for an update on Shopify side.

Before that, most serious shipping app supports it.
