How to: Print Amazon Purchase Order Numbers on my documents

Created:   |   Updated:

Amazon requires that all Business buyer orders show the Purchase Order Number (PO#) printed on both the shipping label and the packing slip. Business buyers use packing slips to reconcile each order and the PO# to route and track packages.

Shipping Labels

ShippingEasy will automatically append the PO# in front of the Order Number on USPS Domestic labels. For UPS and FedEx, follow the additional steps below to add this number to the label.

Packing Slips

ShippingEasy can print packing slips before or after you generate a shipment for an order. You will need to set up a template before you can customize your packing slip to include a PO#. To set and customize a default packing slip, follow our step-by-step guide.

How to: Print Amazon PO#s on my UPS and FedEx shipping labels

  1. Navigate to the SETTINGS page from the blue toolbar.
