Shipping Tips & Solutions

Creating a shipping label is as easy as 1-2-3!

By: Shan Lian | March 27, 2015

We get it. Shipping can be a bore. It’s not what you want to be spending your time on. You want to be creating and selling catsuits, guitars, and Oolong tea. That’s why we’re here: to optimize your shipping process.

We want to be sure that you’re well-equipped as a label-making rockstar, no matter whether you’re a merchant selling on a platform like Shopify and Etsy or you’re considering integrating our API.

Check out the video below for a quick walk-through of Shippo’s label-creation process, from start to finish. Our goal is to get you to that beautiful “Aha!” moment with a label in your hands, as soon as possible. We’ve kept our design clean and friendly and the steps short and sweet.

Create single labels, as shown in the video, or create them in a big batch. You’ll be able to select from 12 different shipping carriers and send bulk email notifications at the click of a button.

Interested in automating this process further via API integration? Check out our API docs here.
