Keep in mind, that if you do not provide your credit card, we will never bill you. However, you also will not be able to purchase postage until you provide a valid payment method.
(1) Add orders
ShippingEasy provides two ways to enter your orders from the WELCOME page:
Connect a store and sync orders automatically
Add manual orders
The Add orders page will walk you through both of these options.
Selected a primary store platform during registration: click the Connect button.
Prefer to connect a different store type: click the arrow button to select a different store.
If you do not have a store to connect to: click the Create a manual order link.
With each option, follow the prompts to connect your store or add orders.
Continue adding your stores and orders until all your platforms are connected and unshipped orders have been saved.
Then click I'm done adding orders. Step 1 is now complete! It is time to select a label layout.
(2) Select a label layout
ShippingEasy supports a range of domestic label sizes and formats. The option you select will depend on your printer:
Label printers: use thermal label paper, already cut to size. Ex: Zebra and DYMO
Traditional printers: use 8.5"x11" paper, commonly with adhesive cut-outs (Avery, OL). Ex: laser and inkjet
It is also possible to print packing slips in tandem with labels or save paper with multiple labels per page.
The most common domestic label formats are shown on the SELECT A LABEL LAYOUT page.
Click the layout your printer uses.
If you need a different format, click the option to View more advanced options.
Additional domestic label formats will be shown. Select the layout that best matches your printer.
Once you have made your selection, click the Save & Continue button.
Step 2 is now complete! It is time to add shipping carriers.
