Order Categories are color-coded, custom-named categories that you can use for many purposes. One of the more popular uses is to filter orders on the ORDERS page. This way, you can easily see when you have expedited shipments and quickly filter to those orders to get them out the door!
Learn how to categorize and filter orders.
Here are a few ways you might use Order Categories:
- Organize your shipments by carrier or service. Create an Order Category called Priority or First Class for batching.
- Prioritize during the holidays. Create an Order Category called Halloween or Christmas to find those orders quickly.
- Plan for extra attention. Create Order Categories called Custom or Fragile to remind you to pick and pack carefully.
Automate this process by setting up a shipping rule to automatically categorize!
