Batch Shipping Overview

How does batch printing work?

Batch printing shipping labels is a faster, more streamlined label-printing process than selecting multiple orders and printing them from the main grid. Why? Batch printing gathers all data from all selected orders, loads them into a single file for processing by the shipping label software, and then generates and prints all of the labels, simultaneously.

For example: If 100 orders are selected and 35 are set to be shipped by USPS Priority, 27 by UPS Ground, and the remaining 38 by UPS 3-Day Select, batch mode will let the shipper choose select a method to batch-print.

So, if the shipper selects UPS Ground, 27 labels will be generated and printed with their corresponding invoices. The shipper can then move to the next shipping method and batch-print all of labels and invoices for that method in the same way.

By default, a maximum of 75 orders can be batch shipped. However, Sellercloud Support can increase or decrease this number upon request. Due to processing reasons, it is advised the maximum number does not exceed 100.

How do I start batch shipping?

  1. Select the orders to ship from the main order grid.
  2. Click Menu > select Process Batches.
  3. The batch processing window will show the order count associated with each of the shipping methods applied, and let you print all associated labels, one shipping method at a time.
