How to Buy & Print Shipping Labels
Discogs has partnered with the United States Postal Service (USPS) to provide US-based sellers with a cheaper, faster, and more convenient shipping experience. If you are shipping domestically or internationally via USPS, you can purchase postage, download, and print shipping labels directly from your Discogs seller dashboard.
You can see the latest prices in the full list of USPS First Class International Shipping Rates. Shipping rates are subject to change, so please check in often for updates.
Reduce your shipping costs with discounted postage for international orders.
Skip long lines at the post office and simply schedule a pickup or drop off your orders to be shipped.
Ensure the buyer’s address is correct with a label generated directly from the order page.
How to Purchase a Shipping Label
Select your order
Purchase your postage
Click the blue “Buy Shipping Label” button on the right side of the page.
Confirm order details
Enter the information on the Purchase a Shipping Label page. Be as descriptive as possible. For example: “vinyl record Beatles Abbey Road” instead of “record.” Then click the green “Confirm Details and Select Shipping” button.
Print the label
Use your printer to create the shipping label.
Ship your package
Affix the shipping label to the package, then coordinate pickup with USPS or drop off at your local post office.

While the Harmonization Code field is listed as optional, some countries are known to reject shipments that do not include the HS Tariff code. Visit the U.S. International Trade Commission for more information on HS Tariff Codes.
