Check to see whether the online store provides a preprinted FedEx label for return shipping. If so, the store will either include a return label in the original shipment or send a label once you request it.

If an online store has provided a printable shipping label simply print that label and attach it to your package. If you need to create and print a label you can create one online and print it at home.

Can I drop off without a printed label?

Yes, you can with these options: If the company you bought from sent you an email with a QR code, you can head to FedEx Office or a participating Walgreens. Show the code to our team, and they’ll print the label for your packed and sealed shipment. Or, if you create a label on your phone with the FedEx® Mobile app, the app can issue you a barcode.

Customers can go to the counter of a nearby FedEx Office or Walgreens location, show the QR code on their phone, and we print the label and ship the package for them. Or, if your customers want to print the returns label themselves at home, FedEx or the merchant can send an email of the return label for customers to print and then drop off to a FedEx location that accepts FedEx return shipments. If you are a merchant and want the ability to send QR codes to your customers, you can add this option by using our FedEx Returns technology solution. Reach out to your FedEx Account Representative to get started.

Can I return UPS packages or USPS packages at a FedEx location?

No. Only FedEx shipments can be processed at a FedEx location. These shipments include FedEx Ground, FedEx Express and FedEx SmartPost®. If an online store has provided you a return label with another shipping service, you won’t be able to return your package at a FedEx location. If you don’t have a shipping label, visit a FedEx location and choose affordable, fast FedEx Ground for an easy and inexpensive return.
