Reprinting a Woocommerce shipping label

Let’s suppose you bought a Woocommerce shipping label, and you printed it, or tried to print it, and now you want to reprint the shipping label.

The important thing here is to be very sure that you do not inadvertently try use the shipping label twice.  It will be a big problem if you try to use the shipping label twice.  If you never actually printed out the shipping label, that would be a fairly safe situation.  But if you have actually printed out the shipping label previously, and your reason for reprinting it is that you simply cannot find the label that you already printed, then you need to worry what if somehow the label that you already printed gets taken to the post office and gets scanned at the post office and put to use.  It is very important to destroy the previously printed label so that you have eliminated the risk that the previously printed label would get put to use along with the reprinted label.

The Easter Egg for this function is the three little dots next to the tracking number in the “shipment tracking” box.  You go to the order that you are worried about, and you go to the “shipment tracking” box.  The three little dots will be horizontal.  Then you click on the three little dots and an Easter Egg menu will pop up, as you see above.  The Easter Egg menu offers four choices:

  • view details
  • schedule a pickup
  • request refund
  • reprint shipping label

To reprint the shipping label, you click on “reprint shipping label”.
