Shipping Labels Setup

You can easily create shipping labels for new and existing orders from the Admin of your store. To create shipping labels, you must first set up your shipping carrier account to support labels. Then, follow the prompts to enter a description of the package and its contents. GS Ecommerce syncs with the shipping carrier, creates an order in the carrier’s system, and receives a shipping label and tracking number for the shipment. An individual order is created for each package shipped. A single shipment with multiple packages receives multiple shipping labels.

 

1. Shipping Carrier Setup:

**Before you begin, make sure that your shipping accounts are setup to process labels. 

Fedex: Contact Fedex Web Services regarding label setup process

USPS: Contact uspstechsupport@esecurecare.net to request that API Signature Confirmation V3 be enabled for your live USPS API Access account.

UPS: Contact UPS to confirm your account type supports shipping labels. To generate shipping labels, you must use the UPS XML option.
