Bulk Shipping Label Generation Made Easy with Shopify FedEx App
Shopify store owners spend a lot of time dealing with their orders. A small to medium-scale online shop will have at least 50 orders per week. The numbers may creep up to 100 or even more than that for a huge e-commerce website.
For small-scale online shops, calculating FedEx shipping estimate, generating and printing the shipping labels may seem less time-consuming. However, when the same process has to be done with more than 100 orders, it becomes a tougher task.
Even though Shopify provides with some of the features related to shipping, you will have to use a third party solution which will help you in the complete process of shipping.
This article will show you how the Shopify FedEx App can help store owners generate and print shipping labels in bulk. Let us take a look at the FedEx rates, labels and tracking app and its features.
