Understanding shipping with Sellercloud
Sellercloud uses its own powerful shipping software application, ShipBridge, to manage all shipping tasks. These include:
- Retrieving a tracking number
- Automatically sending it to the sales channel for the customer’s reference
- Allowing the sale to proceed
ShipBridge integrates with all shipping carriers, as well as Endicia ELS and DAZzle for postage and label printing.
In ShipBridge, shipping rates can be calculated based on carrier, service, and packaging method, and Sellercloud will import that information back into the Order Detail.
If you choose the shipping carrier and the service while taking the order, you have the option of locking them in to ensure your shipping department does not change it in ShipBridge: Check the Lock Shipping Method box to enable this feature. You can also return to any order to perform this action by selecting Lock Shipping Method from the Action Menu to enable this option.
