How to set the Boxes preferences

Do you find yourself using the same package size(s) often? Do you want to save time in setting your order?

We've got you covered. We have added a new feature for you where you can set and add your default parcel box template. This will save you the time of entering the specific dimensions and weight for every label each time you’re using the same size box or envelope. Currently, you can save unlimited parcel box templates.

You can either set it through the Preferences tab or by directly adding it as you create your new shipment order.

Read through the guide below to know more about setting up your custom boxes.
