How to Use Yakit Delivery Partner Postage Labels on Etsy

Starting on March 28th, 2024, sellers in India will no longer be able to purchase shipping labels directly from Shop Manager. Because of this, sellers in India won't be required to use shipping labels purchased through Etsy to complete domestic orders.

Sellers in India can still use their preferred carrier service to ship items to buyers. When managing an order in Shop Manager, manually input the tracking number of a shipping label purchased off-Etsy when marking an order complete

Through our integration with delivery provider Yakit, sellers in India can purchase and print DHL Express postage labels directly from their Shop Manager. Sellers can also purchase DTDC Asendia postage labels as a more economical option for lightweight items. Etsy also offers One World Express postage labels as an option for a more affordable international carrier.

Purchasing postage labels on Etsy to complete an order is optional. If you cannot use a postage label purchased on Etsy to complete an order, you can opt out of this process and complete the order manually.

How do I schedule a package pickup?

Package pickup is required when using DHL Express, One World Express, and DTDC Asendia postage labels purchased on Etsy. Packages cannot be dropped off in person. Pickups for DHL Express must be manually scheduled. Pickups can be scheduled until 12pm IST, and take place after 12pm IST.

Packages sent through DTDC Asendia and One World Express will have a pickup automatically scheduled depending on the time the label is purchased.

  • Labels purchased before 1pm IST have same-day pickup automatically scheduled.
  • Labels purchased after 1pm IST will have a pickup scheduled for the following day.

Request a pick-up

To request a pickup:

  1. Finish purchasing postage labels for your open orders.
  2. Go to your Shop Manager.
  3. Select Request a pickup.

By default, all postage labels with a Dispatch date on or before the next available pickup date are included in a pickup request. 

After the pickup request is completed

After the pickup request is completed, DHL Express will call you to confirm and schedule your pickup. You can communicate any changes to the timing of the pickup with DHL Express directly. You must confirm all details of your pickup request during this call.

Combine all packages from a single pickup request into one bundle using a bag or box. Hand this to the DHL Express representative who completes the pickup request.

How do I add additional packages to a scheduled pickup?

If it is before 12pm IST and you have additional packages to dispatch:

  1. Select Add to pickup request in your Shop Manager for each pickup request you need to add packages to. This option only appears if you have purchased labels that are not part of an existing pickup request.
  2. Select Update package to review and make changes to your package.
  3. Add the needed packages to the request, then choose Add to pickup.

This will add additional packages to your existing pickup request. Make sure all packages for DHL Express are packaged together into one bundle.

If it is after 12pm IST on the date of pickup, you will not be able to add requests to your package pickup, and will see an error. Once your package pickup requests have been completed, you can schedule more package pickups.

For labels purchased through DTDC Asendia and One World Express, a representative will call to confirm the schedule of your pickup request. During this call you can:

  • Cancel your pickup request. At this time, it is not possible to cancel a pickup request through Etsy.
  • Confirm that you will be consolidating packages with labels for both current and next-day pickup into one bundle.

If you do not hand over a package during scheduled pickup, you will see a banner in your Orders & Delivery page reminding you to schedule one.

What delivery services can I use?

We offer DHL Express as a premium, tracked service to deliver international packages weighing up to 70 kg at discounted prices—as much as 50% off retail.

When you purchase a postage label and schedule a pickup, the necessary forms are provided to you. It’s your responsibility to ensure the required information is completed and accurate.

How do I request a refund?

You can request a refund for unused labels that have not been added to a pickup request within 14 days of purchase. Unfortunately, labels that have already been added to pickup requests are not eligible for refunds. Learn how to request a refund for a postage label.

How does Yakit handle delivery insurance?

At this time, supplemental delivery insurance is not available for postage labels purchased through Yakit. However, some delivery methods come with insurance included, noted at time of label purchase. Claims for included delivery insurance coverage must be filed with Yakit directly.

If you are sending a package you need to insure for a value beyond what is included when purchasing a postage label on Etsy, purchase postage elsewhere and then opt out of purchasing a label on Etsy, selecting “It’s an international package that requires insurance” as the reason.
