Im unable to purchase USPS shipping labels on any of my orders.
These are the errors on the screen:
At the top:
1 shipping label couldn’t be purchased.

Glad you got it working again! We did have an issue before, and I replied to your other post here: https://community.shopify.com/c/Payments-Shipping-Fulfillment/Unable-to-purchase-labels-tonight-Dead...
Please let me know if you have any ongoing issues!
A way around this would be to use ShipStation (no I am not an affiliate).
It is usually good for busy vendors or vendors who have multiple sales channels (ie: shopify, amazon, ebay, etsy)
It allows you to download the orders and print labels within their system and bypass Shopify.
It is a paid app and service but maybe it helps someone.
Thanks for the info! However, the system was working fine until Shopify did an upgrade on their end. And it broke on our end and several other people's sites as well based on emails I've been getting. Paying for more apps that we didn't need a few weeks ago and slowing down a website more by adding more apps is something that I"m not certain we should have to do since Shopify is the one that caused the issue for us. 🙂
Totally agree about extra apps. It was one thing I liked and disliked about this platform but people still use it and there are other options.
- Big Commerce
- Miva Merchant
All with their own pros and cons.
I like Shopify because it is easy to manage, hooks well into other apps (usually) and quick to launch. Not going to mention cons, but you already know these.
Agreed on all points. And yes, some of those other apps are awesome.
We'll explore what works best for the site and our team. You are great to take the time and respond here! Appreciate it.
I haven’t tried to purchase any shipping labels today, but when it happened to me it ended up fixing itself within an hour or two. It must have been some kind of Shopify error and they usually get it fixed pretty quick.
Anyone ever confirm if this is just on Shopify's side, and we have to wait for them to fix whatever they broke, or is it something we need to or can do something about? (aside from using an app, etc)
Attempted using different browsers, but nope.
