Send Shipping Label to your Customer via Email using WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin

In this article, we will be discussing WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin and how can you allow 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..? 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.

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 – instead? 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 store that handles this job is older 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 enable the “Send label in the email to customer after label generation“. The image below shows the option to enable this in the plugin settings.
