How to draft a label

Updated over a week ago

After you click the Get Rates button when creating a label in Pirate Ship, that label (or batch) will be saved as a draft until the purchase is completed by clicking the Buy Label button. 

To access these label drafts at a later time, simply head to your main Ship page, where any label drafts will be indicated by a blue Input Needed button:

The Input Needed button will help you manage your drafted labels. By clicking this button, you will be able to review the label draft, and find 3 options for how to proceed with the draft:

Towards the bottom right corner, there's a green 'Buy Label' button that you can click to complete the purchase of this particular shipment.
  • Previous Step will allow you to edit the address, package details, and customs form of the drafted label.

  • Cancel & Delete Label will delete the draft so it no longer appears on your Ship page.

  • Buy Label will allow you to complete the purchase of the label draft as-is.

Note: Pirate Ship only ever charges you when you click the Buy Label button - you won’t ever be charged for drafts still displaying an Input Needed button 😉
