How to configure carrier account in the Shopify Multi Carrier Shipping Label app?

Shipping is one of the most tedious and frustrating parts of an eCommerce business. This becomes more hectic if you are using multiple carriers to handle shipping. If you’re manually handling the shipping process from the carrier website, the process becomes even more time-consuming. You need to login to different carrier accounts, enter the customer details for each order, and then print the shipping label. As your business grows, the fulfillment process with multiple carriers becomes even more complicated.

The easiest and the best solution to this would be the Shopify Multi Carrier Shipping Label app. So, we will see how the app seamlessly integrates with multiple carriers and how to configure different shipping carriers in the app.

With the app, you can integrate multiple carriers like USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL, Canada Post, Australia Post, and much more at the same time and automate the shipping process. You can use your own carrier account with negotiated rates and then display shipping rates at checkout, print shipping labels in bulk, and automate the tracking process by sending tracking notifications to the customers via email.

So, let’s see how to integrate different carrier accounts with the app and the process of shipping with these carriers.
