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 that come in from your connected store or by adding an order manually. Learn how to add a manual order.

This article describes how to create a single label for a shipment. However, there are ways to create multiple labels at one time depending on your needs:

Create a Single Label using Instant Rate

One of the easiest ways to ship is to use Instant Rate, where ShippingEasy automatically assigns a service based on product weight. If you know your product weights are accurate, and you see a rate next to the order, you can just click the rate to purchase the order.

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


    If you see a caution sign, hover over it to see what is preventing us from providing a quote. You can then click the Fix button to resolve the issue and get a quote.

  2. Select multiple orders if they have rate quotes and buy them all at the same time by clicking the Buy Labels button above the orders list.
