To start shipping using Cin7 Orderhive, it’s recommended to configure shipping settings before starting to create shipments & shipping labels. Using some of these settings can help save time on your busy days.
Let's take a look at each of the Shipping settings :
All the required carriers need to be added to your EasyPost integration and they will be displayed directly on the orders page at the time of shipping the order.
In case the required carrier is not on the list, then you can create a Custom Shipping Method by clicking on Custom option and save it for further use.
These settings will allow defining the required package sizes which can be further used while processing the orders.
The default package type is Predefined. There are 4 packages that are already created in the account along with their respective dimensions (length, width, and height).
In case it’s required, the packages and their dimensions can be edited/deleted as well as any new package can also be defined by clicking on the + or Add new package type and adding various details in it such as package type, length, width, height, and unit.
If there’s a need for using custom dimensions for packages, then the toggle button for Custom option should be turned ON, and then click on Save.
Once the Custom option is selected, then you’ll be able to provide various dimensions for the packages while processing the order.
Shipping label Size & Format:
This setting will allow choosing the label size i.e. 4” x 6”, 8.5” x 11” and format i.e. PDF, PNG, etc.
The default selection is 4” x 6” PDF label.
