This article mostly pertains to users in the USA. For more information on related international shipping topics, read our International shipping guide.

Quick answer

When a buyer completes their purchase, be sure to ship your item within 3 business days. You can purchase a shipping label on Reverb through your Orders page by choosing Get Shipping Label. Select the desired add-ons, print the label, and put it on the package to be dropped off with the selected carrier. If you want to edit the tracking information or cancel the label (before it has been scanned), you can also do that from your Orders page.

How are shipping labels on Reverb different from direct carrier shipping labels?

The process of shipping your item is exactly the same. Reverb offers discounted labels through popular carriers like USPS, UPS, and FedEx. We also offer discounted international labels (for EU and UK users only) via our partners at Packlink. The main difference when purchasing a label on Reverb is that the label is under Reverb’s name, so if there are any shipping issues that do not pertain to how the item was packaged, please contact Reverb Support for assistance.

Important: If you decline Safe Shipping while creating your shipping label on Reverb, you assume responsibility for any loss or damages to your shipment. Your shipment does not carry protection from Reverb or the carrier.
