Dimensional Weight Pricing, also known as DIM weight or volumetric weight pricing, is a method used by shipping carriers to determine the shipping cost of a package based on its volume rather than its actual weight. This pricing model is designed to account for the space a package occupies in a transportation vehicle, such as a truck or plane,...Read More
When you're ready to send multiple shipments to ShipShop, consolidating them is the way to go. This means combining individual shipments into one larger container or box. Consolidating shipments will help keep them together until they have been processed, and it can even save you money on postage, pickup and drop spot access fees. To ensure y...Read More
Easily assign names to your batches when importing shipments via CSV file or connected store. You can also visit your Batches page (left sidebar menu) to edit the name of any existing batch. This is an optional step that will help you stay organized when reviewing batches on your Batches page. Your custom name (up to 50 characters) will be dis...Read More

Batching your shipments is a great way to organize them and get quicker tracking updates. To optimize processing times, we recommend sorting your shipments prior to submitting them. This helps to reduce the chances of sorting errors during processing and ultimately speeds up the process.
You can drop off multiple batches at once, however we recommend combining them whenever possible to keep your account organized. If you use a store integration or the ShipShop CSV to import your shipments, you can add them to the same batch with each import. If your account is cluttered with batches, try combining them into one. To do this, go...Read More
