When you sign up for a ShippingEasy account, a Manual Orders store is automatically created. This allows merchants to enter orders into the app, without a store connection. Any orders entered manually to ShippingEasy, outside of your e-commerce store, will have the "Manual Orders" store settings. You can add these orders one at a time or upload many via a CSV file.
This guide will show you how to add manual orders one at a time.
If you have a CSV file of orders that you would like to upload to ShippingEasy, check out our guide to importing orders.
Before you can add manual orders into ShippingEasy, you will need to connect a carrier account to ShippingEasy. Learn more about adding carriers to your ShippingEasy account.
