Hi all,

While creating return label, I am not able to complete payment. The credit card information is rejected. There was a mention that the address in the 'From' field should match the address of the credit card. But when we create the return label, From address is CPC's Canada address. How could this match my US credit card address? I request somebody to help me with clarity. Thanks in advance!

I used USPS to ship to Ottawa, however shipping back is a different matter. USPS doesn't pick up from them like Fedex. I originally sent it with a return UPS label, however they contacted me via email and asked me to send a FedEx label, so that's what I did. Here are the directions they sent me below...

To purchase a FedEx online shipping label please follow the instructions below. If you need help call FedEx at 1-800-463-3339



1) CONTROL & CLICK ON THIS LINK https://www.fedex.com/lite/lite-ship.html?locale=en_ca&cntry_code=ca_english#address



2) FILL IN THE SHIP “FROM” address section with the CPC-Ottawa mailing address as below:



First Name: CPC-Ottawa | CTD-Ottawa

Last Name: PR-TR PRINTING | IMPRESSION RP-RT

Email: (Your email address)

Street Number: 365

Street Name: Laurier Ave

Direction: West

City: Ottawa

Province: Ontario

Postal Code: K1A 1L1



3) FILL IN THE SHIP “TO” address section with your mailing address details



4) DESCRIBE ITEM: Weight (kg): 0.200kg, Length (cm): 24 Width: 16 Height: 1



5) SELECT YOUR SERVICE (Priority, Overnight , Saturday Delivery, etc).

6) FOR PICK-UP select Item #3 – pre-arranged pickup.

7) REVIEW all mailing details and pay online.

8) VERY IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW THIS INSTRUCTION


When you receive the e-mail confirmation from FedEx - do not print out the label - open the shipping label and save the label as an electronic version (PDF file) on the desktop of your computer.




Do not send a picture of the label or the payment receipt. Do not forward the e-mail sent to you by the courier.



ONLY SEND a pdf version of the courier label.

.

9) REPLY TO THIS EMAIL and provide a copy of the label as an attachment. Do not change the subject heading of the e-mail.
thanks for this. I generated a shipping label using this instructions. One thing it asks is a shipping date and I can only select either today or tomorrow. Wondering if the label will be valid for the future even if I select the next day. Thanks.

Yes, it will be valid.
Another tip, this link sends you FEDEX ship manager lite. Over there you only get options for FEDEX Express and they range from $50 or $60+. I used FEDEX ship manager advanced instead and selected FEDEX Ground, that only cost me $20 (CAD) and it arrived in 3 weekdays. The only downside is that Fedex ground does not deliver on weekends, but I was not in a hurry. With ground shipment you need to select the shipment type or something like that and I selected 'repair and return'.

Also if you are sending for the first time, there is no email to reply and hence you have to print the label, customs forms and send those along with your passport.

Hi lampbreaker I hope you can help with my question. I just PPR today, I received 3 separate passport request letters for each member of my family. Each letter is asking for a return envelope. Can anyone please let me know, is one common return envelope sufficient, or do we need to send 3 separate return envelope. BTW i reside in US and will be sending by Fedex. appreciate your help!

One should be enough. I did not receive three separate email for my family, just one.

Great 'tip'. This was more like the entire guide for me. Thank you. Had the whole runaround earlier yesterday trying to figure out what to do - UPS & Fedex refused to print return label. Ended up going the 'Account-route'. Hopefully, everything works out fine.
