Create a Batch Shipment | How To

Creating a batch shipment allows you to apply a set of shipping preferences across all orders with a single selection. Instead of processing individual shipments and selecting a rate for each one, you can quickly process up to 200 shipments at once and apply the same carrier, service, and package.

Important

Domestic and International shipments cannot be batched together!

Create and Process a Batch

To create a batch:

  1. Select one or more orders, then click the Group as Batch button at the top center of the ORDERS page.

    Your batch will be sent to and visible on the READY TO SHIP page.

Note

The individual "Ship To" address for each order will automatically populate on each shipping label based on details entered by the buyer in your store. Click on individual order listings in the "Pending Queue" to review the address details.

Batch Orders by Weight

ShippingEasy has several options for batching orders based on a common factor within your shipments. Options to batch according to variables like destination, quantity, or status quickly allows you to ship these orders via the same carrier, service, and package.

To batch orders by weight:

  1. Choose the Weight filter and select your filter option.

    All orders that meet this requirement will now show on the ORDERS page.

    Tip

    Save your filtered options for easy selection next time, with our [Saved Views feature].

  2. Select the orders you want to batch either by selecting each order individually or selecting all orders on the page to be batched together.

    You will be notified once this is successful and the orders will be sent to the READY TO SHIP page.

Override Weights for all Shipments in a Batch

Once you have sent a batch of orders to the READY TO SHIP page, you will have the option to edit the batch as a whole or an individual order within the batch. Learn more about editing individual orders in a batch.

To override the weights for all shipments in a batch:

  1. Select the batch that you would like to edit from the list of pending orders on the READY TO SHIP page.

    Select the batch you wish to update
  2. Click the Edit for all shipments link within the "Carrier Services and Packaging" section.
