This guide will walk you through shipping your first orders within ShippingEasy.
How To Ship An Order
The easiest way to ship is to use Instant Rate, where ShippingEasy automatically assigns a USPS service based on product weight. If you know your product weights are accurate, and you see a rate next to the order, you can just click the rate to purchase the order.
If you see a caution sign, hover over it to see what is preventing us from providing a quote. You can then click the “Fix” button to resolve the issue and get a quote.
You can also select multiple orders with rate quotes and buy them all at the same time by clicking the Buy Label button:

If you ship using other carriers or need to weigh your orders on a scale you can move them to the READY TO SHIP page. To move orders individually, select the orders, and hit “Create Shipments.”
If you have multiple orders that are going to ship using the same carrier, carrier service, and packaging, you can select all those similar orders, and click “Group as Batch”
This will move the order(s) to the READY TO SHIP page:
