How to get Rate Quotes
There are 3 main ways to get Rate Quotes and they have a hierarchy of priority. They are:
- Shipping Rules - Assign a Shipping Preset to orders via shipping rules to get extremely customized rate quotes.
- Previous Selection - If ShippingEasy sees a new order that is exactly the same as an order it has previously shipped, it will automatically assign the previous shipment method used.
- Instant Rate - ShippingEasy will automatically choose an appropriate USPS service based on the weight of the package.
Check out those individual Guides for more information on obtaining reliable accurate rate quotes for your orders.
