Manage Rejected Shipments

When creating a shipment on Easyship, the system sends information that you enter to the courier and requests label generation. Occasionally, the information will be declined by the courier, resulting in a rejected label. 

In this article, we will touch on some methods of fixing rejected labels on Easyship, providing some common examples. 

What We'll Cover

Editing Rejected Shipping Labels

When a label fails to generate, it will appear in the Manage Shipments section of the Easyship Dashboard on the left-hand column under Rejected.

Step 1: Navigate to Manage Shipments > Rejected found on the left-hand side of the Easyship Dashboard.

You will notice that there is a rejected label notification on the left side.

Note that if you change the destination, dimensions, or weight, the rate will be recalculated and you may be required to pay an additional fee to cover the increase in charges.
If the weights or dimensions are decreased, you will be refunded the difference back to your Easyship account. If you are unable to locate the issue please use the report link at the bottom of the edit page.

Reporting Rejected Labels

There may be times when you have trouble fixing the label or are unsure what the error message means. In these cases, you can report it directly to Easyship and a member of our team will fix it for you. Note that you will only receive an email follow-up on these reports if for some reason we are unable to fix the label.

Step 1: Navigate to Manage Shipments > Rejected found on the left-hand side of the Easyship Dashboard.

Example Error Messages

Note: These error codes are what Easyship will show in the Dashboard and not all errors are included in the examples below. If you have trouble understanding the error, reach out to our customer service team.

  • Invalid recipient postal no / zip code

    In this example, the courier rejected the label due to an invalid postal code.

    However, upon further review it seems that the postal code is actually correct:

    In this case, we are just missing a small detail. A space is required in the correct place:
    S7T1C9 → S7T 1C9

  • Consignee phone is required

    This simply means that a local phone number is required for the receiver. This is so the courier can contact the recipient to arrange delivery or customs clearance if needed.

  • Missing or invalid element: From Phone
    In this case, the sender's phone number is invalid or it is not a local number. Update the phone number associated with your default sender address in the Account > Addresses section of the Easyship Platform.

  • Destination: Suburb/City/Postcode is not valid

    The receiver's City, State, or Postal code is invalid. You may need to get in touch with your customers to confirm their addresses. Once you've confirmed the address, simply edit the rejected label from the 'Manage Shipments' section.
