In the integrated browser you can work with the view of your orders that you are familiar with.
It has all the functionality of a normal browser such as tabbed pages, auto logins and spell checking of text input.
It also has additional features to integrate your sales and online carriers with Packing Partner.
Menus on the toolbar give you instant access to collecting and marking sales despatched, and downloading online carrier labels.
Shipping rules allow you to automatically select the best carrier and service, for each parcel.
Rules can be based on any criteria, such as size, weight value, destination, etc.
We integrate with all the major carriers. Either by connecting to an online service through our browser, or creating labels via a carrier's API.
You can also export a file that can be imported into your carrier.
Labels can be extracted from PDF files to give you complete control over how they are printed.
Using the powerful layout designer, they can be printed onto thermal or integrated labels. We even support duplex label printers.
Tracking numbers can be extracted from carrier labels, or imported from a file supplied by the carrier.
They can then be used in emails to customers, and uploaded to selling channels. This is becoming increasingly important to maintain a high seller rating, on Amazon and eBay.
Create Royal Mail 2D barcoded labels, without uploading and downloading data through the browser. You will need a business account with Click & Drop.
The simplest way to create shipping labels in Packing Partner is to use our on demand labels. These are charged per label created, with discounts for the volume created each month.
For larger packing operations, we can offer a complete custom application, that allows the carrier and service of the on demand label, to be chosen at individual packing stations.
In the records view, you can see the sales that have been collected from your sales channels, and their status.
You can print picking and packing lists, export to carriers, print invoices and labels, and email progress updates to your customers.
As you print and pack your orders, their status is changed, so it's very easy to keep track of their progress.
Once all your orders have been processed, the are marked shipped on your sales channels, with carrier and any tracking details.
There are one click, pre-defined templates, for picking, packing and postal records.
All the lists have user defined settings, so you can print a much or little detail as you need.
If the lists don't quite fit what you need, they can be modified through scripting, to be exactly what you do need.
The layout designer allows you to use a single printing template, to cover all your requirements.
Your design can include text, images, invoice or delivery notes, shipping labels, and automatic CN22 when needed.
You can set rules to print different logos & text for each record. e.g one logo and text for eBay, another for Amazon.
Layouts can be configured to print your tailored layout on label sheets or rolls, plain or integrated label paper.
The standard way to bring sales into Packing Partner, is to select and collect them manually, using the integrated browser.
Express Collect, saves the time taken to collect manually by gathering your sales into our cloud server, then automatically transferring them to Packing Partner.
This is an especially useful time saver for higher volumes, or if you sell on multiple platforms.
The express add-on currently supports: Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Magento1 and Shopify. We are adding more platforms, and if your bespoke site has an API, we can add that too.
Express Collect is a monthly subscription, for the number of accounts you use. The first account is £18 per month, and £8 for each additional account. e.g: 1 Amazon and 2 eBay accounts, the monthly subscription would be £34, including VAT
