Ordoro’s shipping presets allow you to process your orders in no time by applying recurring shipping parameters in one click. 

Configure and save presets that automatically set shipping specifics for your orders. You can select from a variety of criteria like shipping carrier, method, ship date, delivery confirmation, product dimensions, weight, and more.

When it’s time for those orders to get out the door, simply select them in bulk and batch apply any of your unique presets, whether it’s one tailored to those heavy orders that need UPS’ power or one for small parcels making use of USPS’ First Class.

How to create presets?

  4. Click on Save current options as a preset
