Assign Ship From Addresses | Guide

Ship From addresses are saved within your SHIP FROM ADDRESSES account settings. ShippingEasy acts as a database for all of your Ship From addresses, which you can assign to your stores and orders. This opens a range of possibilities, including having multiple warehouses that manage products for specific stores. Learn more about adding, editing, and managing your Ship From addresses in your ShippingEasy settings.

Once saved, Ship From addresses can be assigned in one of five ways:

Override Your Account's Default Ship From Address

Addresses are applied in the following order:

Account default --> Store default --> Shipping Rule --> User Profile --> Manual Override

If your account's default address (in your SHIP FROM ADDRESSES settings) is the only address configured, then this address will be used for all stores and orders.

Your store's default address, assigned in your STORES & ORDERS settings, will override the account default address.

If you use a Shipping Rule to assign an address, this address will take precedence.

If you assign an address to a specific user profile, this address will take precedence.

Any automatically assigned Ship From address can be manually overridden from the READY TO SHIP page.

Video: Store Addresses Overview

This video provides an overview of your SHIP FROM ADDRESSES account settings. This is where you add and manage your Ship From addresses.

Note

The SHIP FROM ADDRESSES setting was previously titled STORE ADDRESSES in ShippingEasy. The setting can still be found under ACCOUNT SETTINGS.

Edit Account Default Address

You can designate a default Ship From address to be used for all stores and orders in your SHIP FROM ADDRESSES settings. When you add a new store to your ShippingEasy account, the default Ship From address will automatically be assigned to the store and to the Rate Calculator. Learn more about adding your Ship From address to ShippingEasy.

The address with the star icon is your default account address. This address will be used as the Ship From address for all of your stores and orders.

  3. Click the Save button.

You're done! New orders from this store will now default to the updated Ship From address.

Assign an Address via a Shipping Rule

Shipping Rules allow you to assign a Ship From address based on certain variables. If an order meets the criteria of the Shipping Rule, the address set by the rule will override both your account default address and store address. Learn more about Shipping Rules.

Tip

Using a Shipping Rule to assign your Ship From address is a great time-saving option if you only have one user login and multiple locations, or if you contract with a drop shipper.

If you have multiple user logins, we recommend assigning a Ship From address on a per-user basis. See [Assign an Address per User] for more details.

To assign a Ship From address via a Shipping Rule:

  1. Enter a title that describes the rule in the Rule name field, such as "Warehouse 1."

  2. Set the IF condition to the variable that defines which address you would use.

    For example, let's say that you have multiple products that ship from different warehouses. We will use the SKU as the condition to assign the Ship From address:

  3. Set the THEN action to assign your Ship From address to orders meeting the IF criteria.

    then set from address to warehouse
  4. Click Save Rule.

    save rules button

The Ship From address will now be assigned to new orders based on the specified IF condition.

Assign an Address per User

Individual user logins can each have unique Ship From addresses assigned. If you have multiple locations, this helps you automatically assign the correct warehouse based on who is shipping the package.

Addresses can be assigned per user in two ways:

  • Admin users can assign the default Ship From address for each user.

  • Individual users can set the default Ship From address for their specific user login.

Admin User: Assign the Default Ship From Address for Each User

  1. Click the pencil icon next to the user account you want to edit.

  2. Select the desired Shipping Address from the drop-down menu.

    This menu will show all of the addresses saved in your SHIP FROM ADDRESSES settings.
