Shipping Presets are a way to apply shipping options such as package type or dimensions to your orders in ShipStation. Simply select the order(s), and select the Shipping Preset from the Shipping module on the sidebar. You can set up hotkeys to apply these to your orders, such as Ctrl+G.
|If you are using ShipStation V3, check out our article V3: Updating Orders and Shipments in Bulk, which goes over how to use this feature in V3.|
To set up a preset, go to the Shipping drop-down on the order sidebar, click Apply Preset, then Manage Presets.
Next, on the Shipping Presets pop-up, click + Add a Preset. In this example, we'll be setting up a First Class Mail Package preset with a hotkey of Ctrl+F.
Set up the preset's name, actions, and hotkey
Note: Any actions not filled out won't apply. For instance, if you don't want to apply a weight with a preset, don't click the Weight checkbox, and the order's weight won't be impacted.
Now, the preset will appear in when you click Apply Preset or via the hotkey setup Ctrl+F.
If you ever want to edit or delete your preset, you'll have the option to when you select Manage Presets.
Once you get the presets set up, you can go back to this Manage Presets pop-up to print out the hotkey to a barcode. This way, you can scan for future orders.
Here's how this one looks on the 8.5"x11" page that it prints out on.
