Multi-Package Shipments

Here you will have the ability to record multiple packages/purchase additional labels for the order.

Note: USPS (Stamps.com) does not support multi-package shipments.

1. Enter the weight and package dimensions for the first package.

2. Click "Add Package"

3. Enter the weight and package dimensions for the next package.

4. Repeat steps 2-3 as needed.

5. When ready, choose your Shipping Service and Method.

6. Choose your Label Format and click PURCHASE SHIPPING LABELS. You can then print the multiple labels for your package all at once. The order will move to Completed.

Note: You can also record a package, check the "Do Not Mark Order As Complete" box, then purchase a shipping label. This will let you print a label, the order will not be marked as Completed, and then you can continue to record more packages and print labels one by one. Doing it this way will give you multiple labels but each with different tracking numbers.

Shipment Notification

Once you purchase shipping labels, your orders will be marked as completed and an email will be sent to your shoppers letting them know of their tracking number and delivery date.
