Assign Package Dimensions to Shipments - Shipping Rules | Guide

ShippingEasy has a way to automatically assign a package and dimensions to your orders. Save a Custom Package, assign it to a Shipping Preset, then apply it with a Shipping Rule.

This shaves time off one-by-one or batch shipping and opens up options to ship from the ORDERS page. Learn more.

A little prep work is required before setting up the shipping rule, but it will save you so much time down the road. If you have already configured a Custom Package and Shipping Preset, you can skip right to creating your Shipping Rule.
