  2. Click the blue "Buy Shipping Label" button.
  3. Complete the information on the Purchase a Shipping Label page, then click the green "Confirm Details & Select Shipping" button.
  4. Use your printer to create the shipping label.
  5. Once the shipping label is paid for and printed, all you need to do is affix it to the order packaging, then schedule a postal pickup or deposit it in a USPS dropbox.

You can review and manage shipping labels that you have purchased through Discogs by going to an order page and clicking the "View Or Cancel Shipping Labels" button.
