LuLaRoe is a popular fashion line driven by a network of fashion retailers. BLESS is the order management system for LuLaRoe retailers. ShippingEasy helps manage your BLESS orders, create shipping labels, and market to your customers.
How does it work?
The BLESS system will send your orders that are Complete to ShippingEasy so that you can create shipping labels. Note that orders that are not yet Complete in BLESS will not be sent to ShippingEasy. ShippingEasy provides tools to help you package your shipments and print postage. When you ship an order, ShippingEasy updates BLESS with the tracking number for the shipment.
Do I need to connect my BLESS account with ShippingEasy?
Why aren't my LuLaRoe orders downloading from BLESS into ShippingEasy?
If you have a new ShippingEasy account, please note that the BLESS integration will not work until you enter a credit card into ShippingEasy.
Also note that only Complete (paid for) orders are sent by BLESS to ShippingEasy. And in BLESS, the order must have been created with the Ship This Order option checked:
To configure ShippingEasy to receive orders from your BLESS account, follow the instructions here.
Why are my orders missing the customer's address?
Orders will only pull into ShippingEasy with the buyer's address if they have been invoiced directly in BLESS and marked as paid.
If the order was paid with a different method (ex: paid with check, paid with credit, giveaway, paid with cash), the Pop Up Address or the retailer's address will be downloaded as the order address instead.
NOTE: for orders paid outside BLESS, use these options to ship the order with ShippingEasy.
- Edit the order in ShippingEasy after it has synced to reflect the correct address. Learn more.
- Do not sync the order and enter the order manually into ShippingEasy.
- To prevent the order from syncing: leave "Ship this order" unchecked in BLESS.
- To manually enter the order into ShippingEasy: see our step by step guide.
Will orders that were already Complete in BLESS when I integrated ShippingEasy be sent to ShippingEasy automatically?
No. Any orders that were already Complete at the time that you integrated BLESS with ShippingEasy will not be sent by BLESS to ShippingEasy. Those older orders can be uploaded into ShippingEasy via a CSV file - see How do I get my orders into ShippingEasy? (below).
Why is the weight always zero on orders BLESS sends to ShippingEasy?
The BLESS system does not contain the weights for the LuLaRoe products, so it is unable to provide weights to ShippingEasy. For service/packaging combinations that do not require a weight (for example, USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope), this is not an issue because weight is not required.
For services that do require a weight (for example, USPS First Class Package Service), you can easily add the weight for each order in ShippingEasy. Learn more.
What should I do first?
ShippingEasy offers a suite of features to help you streamline your shipping. However, we recommend configuring a few basic settings first.

How do I get my orders into ShippingEasy?
You can use one of the following options to add these orders into ShippingEasy:
- Order download via LuLaRoe BLESS integration.
- One-by-one with Quick Ship.
- CSV upload.
BLESS Integration (Automatic download):
When your BLESS account is integrated with ShippingEasy, LuLaRoe orders are automatically routed into ShippingEasy and tracking information is sent back to BLESS once orders have been shipped. Learn more here.
Quick Ship (Manual Orders):
If you have a few orders that need shipping labels and they were marked as Complete in BLESS before you integrated BLESS with ShippingEasy, this is the fastest option. It's also available to all ShippingEasy subscriptions.
Get started with this video - Adding Individual LuLaRoe Orders.
For simple illustrated instructions, take a look at our step-by-step guide.
If you have older orders to process, from before you integrated BLESS with ShippingEasy, the most efficient way to manage those orders is a CSV file. This option is reserved for ShippingEasy's Basic and above (paid) subscribers.
A CSV file is a condensed data document in which you can compile details for all your pending shipments. Then with a single action, you can upload all those orders to ShippingEasy.
Get started with these steps:
How do I buy a label?
There are a range of buying options, but they all come down to shipping orders one-by-one or in batches.
If you need to consider how each package will ship, shipping one-by-one is the best way to start. Learn more.
Batch shipping is fast, as it allows you to purchase postage for many orders at once. It's best when you:
- Have many orders ready to ship.
- Know which orders will ship via the same carrier and service.
Get started with the video: Batching LuLaRoe Orders & Buying Labels
For simple batching instructions, take a look at our step-by-step guide.
TIP: you will apply a single carrier and selection to the batch.
So, we recommend that you first filter your orders. The filters you apply should result in a group of orders that will all ship via the same carrier and service. For example:
- Filter orders weighing less than 15.9 oz, so that you can ship them via USPS First Class Mail.
- Filter orders designated Zone 1 - 3, so that you can ship them via USPS Regional Rate.
If you're not sure which carrier services to use, take a look at these guides:
How can I find specific orders?
On the ORDERS page, you can sort for orders specific orders using the filters on the left hand side of the page. Learn more.
Sort for orders that correspond to a specific Pop-Up campaign by selecting the "Custom Fields" search from the left-hand toolbar and entering in the date or name of the Pop-Up you wish to see orders for. Learn more.
Additionally, you can use the Global Search bar to locate orders from anywhere in the app. Learn more.

You can also connect any other stores that you sell on and add our Customer Marketing feature. There is no shipment volume restrictions on this plan. This plan includes all of the other features of ShippingEasy's Basic plan. Learn more.
At this time, ShippingEasy does not support any other subscription plans for LuLaRoe BLESS stores. It is not possible to downgrade a subscription from the LuLaRoe BLESS plan type.
What shipment information does ShippingEasy send back to Bless?
When an order is shipped within ShippingEasy, the order is updated on the Shipping Management page in Bless. ShippingEasy will send Bless a Shipped status and the shipment tracking number.
Note, if two or more orders are combined, only the surviving order will be updated in Bless. The orders that are merged into the surviving order will not be updated in Bless.
