Connect Your Shippo Account to Square

The shipping label feature on the Square Online orders page has been removed for most sellers. Shipping labels can be purchased using the updated shipping label experience from the Shipments page in Square Dashboard. See below for more information on how to get started.

By integrating your Square account with Shippo, you can generate and print shipping labels for shipment orders created in Square Online, Square Point of Sale, and Square for Retail.

Integrate with Shippo

To connect a Shippo account and set up shipping label purchases:

  1. Log in to your Square Dashboard and click Account & Settings > Fulfillment > Shipment.

  2. Click Get started > Connect account. If you already started connecting your account, click Continue setup > Connect account.

  3. Create a new Shippo account by entering your full name, email address, password, and billing information, then click Sign Up. Click Log in if you already have a Shippo account. If you set up a new Shippo account, check your email to complete your account activation.

  4. Click Next once your Shippo account successfully connects. If the connection fails, you can review the error message and click Connect account to try again.
