Are you tired of re-typing shipping information into another software to create shipping labels? Reduce the risk of errors by using OrderMyGear to create your shipping labels!
Step 1: Locate the store you want to create shipping labels for and click on the "Shipping" tab.
Step 2: Click on the green "Create Label" button for the order you want to ship.
- Click here to learn how to create shipping labels in bulk.
Step 3: Choose the items you want to include in the shipment. By default, all the products in the order are checked.
Note: If you are shipping a portion of an order, you can select the specific products you are wanting to ship.
Step 4: Click on the dropdown menu to choose the type of package and/or dimensions you are going to use when shipping this order.
- If the package you are using is not listed in the dropdown menu, you can select Custom Packaging and enter your own package dimensions.
- Click here to learn how to add custom shipping templates.
Step 5: Enter the weight of your package. We pre-fill the package weight based on the total weight of the products on that order. If you want a different weight, you can type it in the box.
- Weight defaults to ounces. You can change this by clicking on the dropdown menu.
Step 6: Select the date you intend to ship the package. Some carriers will not let you specify a date that is more than 6 days in advance.
Note: If you decide to add signature confirmation or ship to a business, rates may change.
Step 6: Check to make sure the sender's address is correct. The Destination Address should be exactly what the customer filled out.
Step 7: Click on the green "Select Shipping Rates" once all information is inputted.
Note: The preferred rate offered is based on the shipping option the customer selected at checkout, but you do not have to select the same shipping service level if you find a better/cheaper option.
Step 8: Click the green "Purchase Label" button when you are ready to purchase the label.
- On the final page, you can download your shipping labels and choose to send your customers automated tracking emails. To read more about tracking emails, check out our Shipment Tracking Emails article.
Tracking Email Example:
Once you create a shipping label, you can mark that order as "shipped" (or any other name you'd like to set up!) using our Custom Statues feature. Click here to learn how to set up your own Custom Statuses to help make tracking your fulfillment process a lot easier.
Change Default Sender Address
When creating labels, is your Default Sender (Shipment Origin) Address incorrect? If so, you will need to update your Shipment Origin Address in Dealer Settings > Store Template > Shipping. However, this only updates stores created after this change is made. To update already created stores, go to the store in question > Edit Store > Payment & Info > and add a USPS shipping method and save it (this is only temporary). Once USPS is added, you will see a Shipment Origin Address and can Edit it. (This only updates the store you are on, you will have to make this change on all old stores.) After the change is made, you can delete USPS if not needed.
