- A credit on a future invoice.
- A refund to credit card on file with UPS.
The amount credited back to the UPS account for voided labels ranges between $10 and $50 depending on the properties of that shipment: weight of the box, dimensions of the box, ship from destination, ship to destination.
Once a credit is delivered, Share a Refund notes the amount credited and reports on the savings delivered.
