ShippingEasy offers several ways to purchase labels on the ORDERS page. Depending on your settings and workflow preferences, you can buy and print labels in the following ways:
- Create a shipment and manually assign a carrier
- Group a batch of labels together for fast processing
- Quickly add and purchase a manual label
- Compare rates and buy a label
The following steps describe how to purchase labels using the Buy Labels button on the ORDERS page. This process works well if you have already built in the automation with stored Shipping presets and Shipping Rules to apply those selections. ShippingEasy will provide rate quotes on the ORDERS page. Then in an instant, you can buy and print those labels.
For more details about Buy Labels, take a look at Buy Labels FAQs guide.
