Best of Rules: Assign a package and dimensions to my shipments

Created:   |   Updated:

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.

Plus and above subscribers also get quick access to exclusive Flat Rate Green pricing. 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've already configured a custom package and Saved Selection, you can skip right to creating your Shipping Rule.
