Create and Use Shipping Presets | How To

A Shipping Preset is a saved configuration of service and package types. Once created, presets can be applied to orders automatically via rules or manually using instant rate. If you regularly ship a high volume of similar packages, Shipping Presets can help save time by eliminating multiple steps in your shipment configuration process.

You can add as many Shipping Presets as you need. When you configure a preset, you assign a carrier, carrier service, package, and weight.

Create Shipping Presets

There are two ways to create shipping presets in Shipping Easy:

  • In the Order Details Slide Out

    We recommend this method if you want to create your presets while shipping and see service pricing while saving presets.

  • On the SHIPPING PRESETS Settings page

    We recommend this method if you already know what presets you'd like to create or if you plan to do most of your shipping from the Orders page.

Apply a Shipping Preset to an Order

Once you have created your Shipping Presets, they will be available on the ORDERS page. This lets you quickly assign shipping configurations to your shipments with a single click.

Delete a Shipping Preset

You can delete a Shipping Preset on the SHIPPING PRESETS page.

  1. Click SHIPPING PRESETS under the SHIPMENT SETTINGS section.

    Shipping Rules

    You cannot delete a Shipping Preset used in a shipping rule. The shipping rule must be modified to remove the preset before you can delete it.

  3. Click OK in the confirmation pop-up screen if you are sure you wish to delete this preset.
