Can I create a customs form without buying a label?

You can't fill out a blank customs form on the USPS website unless you buy a corresponding label directly from USPS

Updated over a week ago

While Pirate Ship will always provide a customs form if it's needed for the shipment by default, there's no way to generate a customs form without purchasing a shipping label alongside it ๐Ÿ˜“

Customs forms can't be filled out on the USPS website unless you purchase a label directly from USPS along with it. When you try to fill one out on the USPS website without purchasing a label, USPS generates a random tracking number on the form. So, your option for finding a blank customs form is to pick one up at your local Post Office.

It's important to note that if you are purchasing a label for an international shipment, or a package headed to a military address or U.S. Territory, Pirate Ship will automatically generate the customs forms you'll need ๐Ÿ˜‰ Click here to see how to fill them out!

Shipments to Guam

Although Guam is considered part of the United States, USPS may require a customs form depending on the weight of the shipment ๐Ÿ‘ Our team is currently investigating a known issue in which USPS is not automatically providing the customs forms for shipments that would require them.

You typically only need customs forms for packages weighing 1 pound or more, but we recommend filling out the form linked above for any shipment to Guam to be totally safe!
