How to print packing slips, order receipts and order details


Packing slips

A packing slip is a receipt summarising the details of the sale. This document is meant for your buyers and provides a detailed count and cost breakdown for each item in a delivery order such as VAT rate, sub-total, postage, and VAT amount.

You can customise your packing slip by adding details such as your name, address, eBay store logo, store QR code, store URL, seller rating, warranty information, a thank you note for your buyers, and more.

Tip – Packing slips can be a great way to both drive traffic to your store and encourage buyers to learn more about your brand for their future purchases.

Order receipts

An order receipt is an internal document meant to help you keep track of accounting and contribute to a well-run operation overall. The order receipt contains essential payment details and order information which can be used to maintain your inventory, taxation records and for bookkeeping purposes.

You can customise your order receipt to include details such as listings photos, postage info, eBay store logo, and more.
