When creating Access labels

What it means: This error message occurs if the SKU for any product in the order is greater than 25 characters. For manual orders, you can edit the product in the order so that the SKU is less than 25 characters. If this is a marketplace order, you will need to either:

What to do:

  • Create a manual order and ship the manual order using Access. Then use the Mark as Shipped action to update the marketplace order with the tracking information.

  • Use the Rate Calculator to create an Access shipping label, then use the Mark as Shipped action to update the marketplace order with the tracking information.

Whichever option you choose, we also recommend you update your product SKU number to be less than 25 characters and prevent the error from occurring on future shipments.
