Available to Existing Inventory Management Subscribers

This feature is only available to existing Inventory Management subscribers. Non-Inventory Management subscribers can learn more about using the ShippingEasy Product Catalog.

We are not currently opening Inventory Management to new users or developing new features or functionality for our Inventory solution. This means that at this time we cannot address the issues you have with the current system.

If you need an inventory solution that lets you add your third-party fulfillment provider to your account, our sister company ShipStation may be a better solution for you.

ShippingEasy allows you to create purchase orders for products that come in packs of varying sizes. By selecting to display the pack quantity on your purchase order you reduce the risk of your supplier incorrectly packaging your order.

Note

The"Quantity (Packs)" value displayed on your purchase order is a read-only value. It should be used to indicate the pack size of your product to your suppliers. It will not affect the unit cost of your products.
