Etsy Launches Discounted UPS Shipping Option for U.S. Sellers

Etsy sellers can now directly purchase UPS shipping labels for domestic orders via the Shop Manager, bolstering their dispatch options with significant discounts and a robust network of drop-off locations.

This new choice taps into the established strengths of UPS, known for its reliability and expansive logistics network.

With discounts of up to 78% off regular UPS Ground rates and up to 73% off for UPS 2nd Day Air services (discounts are off UPS daily rates), Etsy sellers can enjoy reduced shipping costs, which could translate into better shipping costs for buyers or higher margins sellers that offer free or discounted shipping.

The service enhancement extends beyond mere savings. Complete order tracking, weekend delivery options, and access to 22,000 UPS Access Point locations and more than 5,500 The UPS Store locations make UPS one of the most convenient carriers to use.

In addition, the around-the-clock availability of countless UPS Drop Box locations nationwide means that Etsy sellers can manage shipments on their schedule, an essential flexibility for small business operations.

How To Get Started With UPS on Etsy

Adopting UPS services through the Etsy Shipping platform is a straightforward process.

Sellers navigate to Shop Manager > Orders & Shipping and click the truck icon for the order that requires a label.

New users to UPS on Etsy will be prompted to confirm their shipping address and accept the UPS DAP Terms and Conditions.

Following these steps, Etsy sellers can purchase and print their labels as they usually would, integrating UPS’s reliable shipping services into their Etsy business with ease.

Incorporating UPS’s shipping solutions, Etsy sellers are positioned to provide their customers with faster, more reliable delivery options, enhancing customer satisfaction and trust.

This new addition represents a significant step forward for Etsy and its community of sellers, reinforcing the platform’s commitment to providing practical, efficient tools for small business success.
