After an order has been placed on your website, you now have the ability to manage everything shipping related. You can instantly create a shipping label using Universe Shipping, send the package out via USPS or UPS, and an email will be sent to your customer with their tracking number.
To generate a shipping label:
Tap on the order from the Payments page in the Commerce tab of the app. On this page, you are able to view and manage all orders that were received on your site.
After you've tapped on the desired order, tap on the blue "Print Shipping Label" option.
Once tapped, a drawer containing basic shipping information will appear. Enter shipping address and package weight, this will determine the cost. The address you entered when signing up as a merchant will be used by default. To use another address, tap the pencil icon on this page. Please note that if the customer ordered multiple items (from the shopping cart), they all must be shipped in the same box as it is currently only possible to generate one shipping label per order.
You can either use the slider to select the item weight, or tap the item weight number next to slider to enter a custom weight. It is important to get the package weight correct (after placing the item in the packaging) to avoid unexpected shipping costs from the postmaster.
