ReturnZap will not be able to generate prepaid return labels unless one of these two methods is configured
Enabling prepaid return labels globally

Navigate to Settings > Shipping and Return Labels within the ReturnZap app and make sure that the option for prepaid labels is enabled for all customers. It should look like this:
Customizing prepaid label eligibility via ReturnZap rules
Do you want all of your customers to be able to access prepaid return labels for all purchases? Great, no other configuration is required. You will have the option to generate a prepaid return label via an admin initiated return, or your customers can do the same via the ReturnZap self service returns portal.
But if you want to limit prepaid return labels to certain customer segments or specific products or types of returns, you can do this via the ReturnZap rules engine.
Once you have connected an eligible Easypost account and enabled the prepaid return label option, admins and customers will be able to generate a prepaid return label if eligible.
When a prepaid label option is selected, ReturnZap will make an API call to the connected Easypost account and pass relevant return information like origin/destination address, box size, weight, etc.
ReturnZap then selects the lowest cost rate among the options Easypost returns and generates the return label. You can rest assured that ReturnZap is generating the most cost effective label based on your Easypost configuration.
If you need to force specific carriers or shipping methods please reach out to ReturnZap support for assistance.
