Dont get stuck making multiple stops and paying hidden fees…
Time for Your Amazon Return
So, you have received the wrong size sweater for Christmas this year? The shoes won’t fit? Or you simply found the same item cheaper elsewhere? Amazon.com will be glad to take your returns and refund your purchase but here is what you need to know about the “No Printer. No Problem” option that can make sending that package back a major hassle.
Start Your Return
Prepare your package for return. Pack your item securely, inserting any paperwork that was included when you requested your return from the Online Returns Center. If you still need to start your return, you can do so by going to your Orders Page. If you don’t have the original product packaging, you can bring your item into your local Post And Parcel store and we can pack it for you or, if you prefer, just provide an inexpensive box and padding.

Return Shipping Options
Depending on the items you’re returning and the reason for your return, your shipping methods may vary for your return.
No Printer. No Problem:
Amazon provides you with a QR code which can be used by a select group of stores to print a label. While Amazon does not charge for this option you may be charged by the store for printing the label and you are severely restricted on where you can drop your package off. If you have multiple packages including returns for US Mail or FedEx, those locations will likely not take those packages at the same time meaning you will have to make multiple stops to return your packages.
U.S. Postal Service:
Amazon provides you with postage-paid mailing label to return the package and give it to your postman or take it to your local Post And Parcel Store. You can also forward the mailing label and print it in the store for no additional fee. Our email address can be found on our Locations page.
This is, in our opinion your best option. Amazon provides you with a pre-paid shipping label for your return package and you can take it to any authorized UPS shipping location. This option allows you to track your package on its way back to Amazon with a real tracking number. You can forward the label to your local Post And Parcel Store to be printed at no additional cost and you can drop off all of your returns with one stop.
Amazon contacts UPS and arranges for them to pick up your package from the address it was originally shipped to. This is ideal for large or heavy items that are hard to carry, and if you select this option before 9:00 p.m. Pacific time, UPS will attempt pickup on the next business day. This option allows you to track your package on its way back to us. Pick up fees will apply
