How to print a shipping label:
After you complete your transaction with TechPayout, you will receive a prepaid shipping label. Please print the label with your personal printer. If for some reason you are not able to print the label at the end of the transaction, you will also receive an email confirmation with a link to print the label. Check your Spam folder if you do not receive confirmation immediately after completion.

How to prepare your item(s) for shipping:
After you have printed the free shipping label, you will need to pack the item(s) in a box. You can use any box of your choice when shipping to TechPayout. We always pay shipping.
1. Use a secure box
If possible, use a new box. This will provide maximum protection to the item(s) inside.
If you reuse a box, please make sure it is secure, and taped thoroughly to ensure the items(s) protection.
Instructions if reusing a box:
- Cover all previous labels and bar codes.
- Use a permanent black (or dark colored) marker to completely black out all bar codes and labels on the box.
If the item(s) are small enough, you may use a padded envelope. Please wrap the item in bubble wrap to ensure the items(s) protection.
2. Provide internal protection
It is important to secure the contents of your package properly. Electronics are fragile, and we do not want the items to be damaged during shipment. Please be sure that you wrap each item separately.
The following items can help secure your item(s) inside the package:
Air-encapsulated plastic (small and large cell bubble sheeting)
- Inflatable packaging (air bags)
- Expanded polystyrene "peanuts" (loose fill)
- Corrugated liners and inserts
- Crumpled kraft paper
- Crumpled Newspaper
3. Close Your Container Securely
Proper closure of your container is just as important as proper cushioning for the safety and security of your shipment.
Apply three strips of tape to both the top and bottom flaps of the box. Please ensure that the box is secure and ready to ship.
