Step By Step Guide
Click on SETTINGS in the top right corner.
Go to Shipment Settings then "Shipping Rules."
Click Add new on the right side to create a new rule.
First, give your rule a name.
Rules consist of 2 parts: The “IF” statement, and the “THEN” statement. The “IF” statement tells ShippingEasy what to look for in orders, and the “THEN” statement tells it what to do with the order once it finds it. Click here for all the available rules for setup.
The “IF” section is capable of identifying almost anything about an order, from destination type to the number of line items, to weight, to almost anything. Here is a complete list of possible “IF” conditions:
The “THEN” statement is capable of adjusting many things about the order, here is the complete list:
The most common use of rules is to assign a Shipping Preset to orders meeting a specific Condition. For instance, the below rule identifies products in the 8x8x8 Box category, ensures it consists of a single quantity single line item, and is going domestically, and then assigns the domestic priority 8x8x8 box preset to the order.

Now all of those orders can be easily shipped from the Orders Page using the Buy Labels button without any further decisions to be made by you.
At the bottom of each rule, the radio buttons have a few options as to where to put the order:
Send to orders page: Leaves the order on the orders page.
Send to Ready to Ship page: Moves this order to the ready to ship page
Purchase and Print label (InstantLabel): This will purchase the label if a valid rate quote is retrieved for the order. Learn more about InstantLabel.
Drop Ship: Moves this order to fulfillment by Amazon if you have it set up on your account.
