Make sure you have an updated PDF reader

Because PDFs usually require third-party software, make sure that you have a PDF reader installed and that it is up to date. There are some PDF readers that can be downloaded for free, like Adobe Reader. If you’re using a Mac, you can open PDFs with the Preview application.

Note: If using Adobe, please be sure that you are running the most up-to-date version of both your browser and Adobe Reader.

Check your Browser Extensions/Add-ons or Settings

Some browser add-ons may cause the PDF to not load or appear corrupted. Check to make sure add-ons like Ad Block are up to date and performing properly.

You may also try temporarily disabling any add-ons to see if this corrects the issue. For instructions, please see the support page for your browser:

·         Chrome

·         Firefox

·         Internet Explorer

·         Safari

Try downloading the label again

Some PDF reader software may interfere with your browser’s normal behavior. If this is the case, try downloading the shipping label to your computer by right clicking the Download Shipping Label button and selecting Save Target As or Save Link As.

Once it's downloaded to your computer, open the document in your PDF reader of choice.

Try a different browser

Some browsers can open PDFs inline using their own software (such as Google Chrome). If you’re having trouble opening a PDF in your browser, try a different browser and see if you have any success.

Make sure that you're using the most up-to-date version of your browser.
