At this point, ShipStation sends a request to the carrier with your shipment details. The carrier then returns a label PDF to ShipStation. 

When ShipStation has received the label, ShipStation automatically opens the Print Label pop-up screen. You can now print (or download) the label.

Move on to the Print a Label article for details.
