Mercado Libre US

ShipStation's integration with Mercado Libre supports US-based merchants shipping their Mercado Libre marketplace orders from the US into Mexico.

Unlike other marketplace integrations with ShipStation, Mercado Libre orders will already have a label created for them in the Mercado Libre account. We call this "Bring Your Own Label" or BYOL. These ready-to-ship orders will import into ShipStation so you can organize them and print their labels in ShipStation. Once you print the label, the order will move to the Shipped status in ShipStation, just as orders from other selling channels do.

Due to the BYOL feature, there are certain limitations to the actions you can perform on orders in ShipStation. Please review the Bring Your Own Label section below for more details.

Bring Your Own Label (BYOL)

All Mercado Libre orders will already have a label generated for them by Mercado Libre. This means, you will not be creating labels in ShipStation. However, you can use ShipStation's [batch shipping], [tagging], [customer notification], and other features as you prepare to print your labels.

Since a label is already created for your Mercado Libre orders, there are several actions available in ShipStation that will not apply to Mercado Libre orders.
