About Process Shipments

The Process Shipments screen works with ManageMore's optional Shipping Manager feature. When the Shipping Manager is used in delayed shipment mode the program will behave as follows: As invoices are created which require shipping, they are sent to this screen for processing. When the package is ready for shipment, the user can automatically send the shipping information from these transactions to the shipping software which will then process the actual shipping manifest for your shipping carrier. This feature is mainly used by companies who ship a large number of packages, since this process allows you to rapidly ship multiple packages without having to copy information and paste information between software programs.

Q & A - Process Shipments


Q01.   I have special rates with some of the shipping carriers that I use. Will I be able to import these special rates into the shipment manifest system?
A01   Yes, the shipment manifest system provides functionality to allow for special rates. In some cases, an import is not even necessary, the shipment manifest system connects to the carriers' servers via the internet and obtains the rates in real-time.

Q02.   I don't see my question here. Where else can I get information?
