Add Notes to Orders & Shipments | How To

If you want to edit the notes on orders after syncing them into ShippingEasy, you can quickly update the notes from the ORDERS page before processing the shipment. ShippingEasy allows for three types of notes to be added to orders: customer, gift, and internal.

Add Notes on the ORDERS Page

You can Add Notes to orders in the Order Details slide out.

The Notes section of the Order Details slide out:

Order details slideout notes section.

Whichever method you choose, an Edit Notes page will appear where you can edit or add notes.

Customer and Gift Notes

Gift and customer notes can be pulled in from your store and edited in ShippingEasy, or they can be added in ShippingEasy after your order has been imported.

  1. Click the ODET_Closed_Carrot.png icon to expand the Notes section in the Order Details slide out.

  2. Click in the text box under the note options and add your notes.

Internal Notes

Internal notes do not display outside ShippingEasy and are meant to help organize your shipping process. Whether you want to leave a note for your shipping staff or a customer has changed an address, and you want to flag a reminder to yourself, adding internal notes to orders can help you stay organized!

Suggested ways to use Internal Order Notes:

  • Change of address – Ever have a buyer email to update the address they want you to ship to? Add a note to the order! We will flag it, and you can update it when ready to ship.

  • Buyer comments/late requests – Buyers often send through additional requests post-purchase. Use order notes to tag the order with these comments so things ship correctly.

  • Multiple shippers – Do you have more than one person doing your shipping? Use these notes to communicate between shifts and people. More communication fewer mistakes.

ShippingEasy allows you to add internal notes at two stages in the shipping process: on the ORDERS page before you pick your shipments or on the SHIPMENT HISTORY page after your print your labels.

Add Internal Notes from ORDERS Page

  1. Click the ODET_Closed_Carrot.png icon to expand the Notes section in the Order Details slide out.
