When are my shipment confirmation emails sent?

Created:   |   Updated:

Shipment confirmation emails provide your customers with easy access to the tracking number and delivery status of their order, vital to reinforcing your stores credibility and professionalism. 

The timing of the shipment confirmation emails depends on whether or not you have post dated the labels.

When labels are purchased on the Ship date:

The shipment confirmation email is sent as soon as a label gets printed.

Click Print Now on the READY TO SHIP page or select the green Print button on the READY TO PRINT page.

When labels are post dated with a future Ship date:

The shipment confirmation email will be sent on the shipment date.  The hour & minute are determined by the hour & minute of the day you printed your label.

For example: if you print a label on Monday at 5:02 pm and post date it to ship on Tuesday, we'll send the confirmation on Tuesday at 5:02 pm.
