Create a Single Label

Creating a label for a shipment is ShippingEasy's primary function. A shipment consists of one or more orders and allows you to assign an individual service and rate for each order.  You can create a label for a shipment from orders from your connected store or by manually adding an order.

  1. Click Buy Label in the "Shipping Selection" column of the order you wish to create a label for.
