Introducing Canada Post shipping services straight from your Etsy shop

Posted on Feb. 13, 2014 by @ship_cpc in Shipping Solutions

If you’re a small business owner, you know that spending less time on administrative tasks can help grow your business. That’s why Canada Post and Etsy have teamed up to integrate Canada Post shipping services into the Etsy platform. If you’re a Canadian seller on Etsy, you can now quickly and easily manage your shipping labels directly from your Etsy shop. Save time by printing your Canada Post shipping labels from the comfort of your home, workshop, or studio instead of going to the post office.

Affordable shipping services made easy for small businesses

Whether you require economical or rush delivery, you’ll find the options you need for sending parcels locally, nationally, or around the globe right in your Etsy shop. As an Etsy seller, you can print labels for a full range of shipping services including :

Canada Expedited Parcel™, Xpresspost™ and Priority™
U.S. Light Packet™ – USA, Small Packet™ – USA Air, Tracked Packet™, Expedited Parcel – USA, Xpresspost – USA
International Light Packet™ – International, Xpresspost™ – International, International Parcel Air or Surface, Tracked Packet™ – International and Small Packet™ – International Air and Surface

Learn more about other Canada Post shipping services that are available on the Etsy platform. Once you’ve attached the Etsy shipping labels to your packages for delivery, you can simply drop them off at one of our 32,000 street letter boxes (size permitting) or 6,500 post offices across Canada. In most cities you can arrange to have your parcels picked up if you’re using shipping labels and have a Canada post customer number – note that separate fees apply to this service. Shipping label costs include a special discount rate and are then added to your other Etsy sellers’ fees. Your buyers will automatically receive a shipping confirmation email as well as tracking information for all domestic and some U.S. and international services.

Give your buyers the choices and service they want

We can help you create an exceptional e-commerce experience for your customers. Buyers from your Etsy shop can choose from a range of Canada Post shipping options and services they know, trust, and expect including:

  • Delivery to all 15 million residential and business addresses in Canada.
  • Delivery location choices such as P.O. Boxes.
  • Insurance coverage options.
