Send Shipping Label via Email using WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin
In this article, we will be discussing WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin and how can you allow customers as well as store owners to get the UPS shipping label via email.
WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin allows customers to get shipping labels via email. But what about the shop owner..? and even the vendor, or the warehouse manager..?
Sometimes WooCommerce store owners have to get shipping labels urgently and in such cases, logging in to the WordPress dashboard and then visiting the orders to get the shipping labels is the last thing they would want to do. Moreover, in the case of multiple warehouses, you need to make sure they get the shipping labels in order to timely ship the packages to the correct address.
According to Sam, a WooCommerce store owner, “I see there is an option for sending the label to the customer once it is created. How can I send an email to myself – the shop owner, as well as my warehouse keeper? It’s more convenient and much faster for us to open an email and print, than having to go to the backend, go to the order details page and then print. The person at our warehouse that handles this job is older as well, so these are a lot of steps and too complicated for him.”
Adding Email IDs
In order to get the shipping label via email, store owners need to set up their email id or the store’s dedicated email id. Once it is done, you need to set the Send Shipping Label via Email option to Shipper. You can also set this to both the shipper as well as the customer, and the plugin will send the shipping label to both the store owner as well as the customers.
Also, in case of a multi-vendor scenario, you can also send the shipping labels to the vendors. In such cases, another option of Vendors will also appear in the settings. Just select Vendors option and save the settings. Once you save the settings, the plugin will send the shipping labels via email, as shown below.
If you have set up the label size and format to GIF and 8.5X11, you need to keep a check on the following,
- Download both the files (.html as well as .gif) in order to view/print the shipping label (See Image Below)
- DON’T rename the file containing the shipping label
- Keep both the files (.html as well as .gif) in the same folder
So this article covers generating UPS Shipping labels using WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin and then sending them to the store owner, customers as well as vendors, via email. Shipping labels contain important information with regards to the source and destination address. However, in some cases, the store owner may not be able to get the shipping label from the WooCommerce Order’s page. Hence, we require some mechanism to deliver the shipping label to the store owner via email.
