Before editing these options you'll need to create a ShippingEasy connection in GroovePacker. Please see this article for details.




There are two ways to access your ShippingEasy connection settings. Clicking on the settings gear at the top of the GroovePacker interface will show you a list of connections. Clicking the name of the ShippingEasy connection will open the settings. I've you've imported orders at least once before it's also possible to hover the mouse over the "Import Orders" button to reveal the import summary popup. The ShippingEasy icon is a clickable link to your connection settings. 


There are a number of switches to configure your ShippingEasy connection to GroovePacker, let's look at these next.


Refer to this image:



Under 'Import Orders with following statuses,'


  • Orders List: When enabled, orders found in the ShippingEasy Orders List will be imported. You will want to leave this disabled for most workflows.

  • Ready to Ship: When enabled, orders found in the ShippingEasy Ready to Ship list will be imported. This is the option to choose if you will be creating shipping labels on at a time after each order is packed. In this workflow you'll vet new orders in the ShippingEasy orders list. Those that will be shipping on that day will have their Packing Slip printed and a shipment will be created (meaning they get moved to the ready to ship list in ShippingEasy.) This can be done for individual orders or for a selection of orders. Now that the orders have been moved to the ready to ship list they will be imported into GroovePacker when you click the import orders button in GroovePacker.

  • Shipped: When enabled, GroovePacker will import orders that are marked as Shipped in ShippingEasy. This is used if you print your shipping labels in bulk or batches before packing. In this workflow, after the shipping labels are created in ShippingEasy the orders will have a status of Shipped. They can then be imported into GroovePacker by clicking the Import Orders button. 

If you do a mix of both workflows you may want to have both switches enabled but in most cases you'll only want to have one switch enabled.


Next up, Generate Barcode from SKU will automatically create a barcode in GroovePacker identical to the SKU of the item. If you use the same value for you barcode and sku this will eliminate the need to setup new products before scanning. If your barcode and SKU do not match for all items please be sure this is disabled.


The Extended product data option will automatically set up product aliases and kits in GroovePacker if they have been set up in ShippingEasy.


The ShippingEasy Printing Popup switch is used when shipping labels are printed after packing orders (see the "ready to ship" workflow above). When enabled GroovePacker will open ShippingEasy in a popup window* and display the order that was just packed so the shipping label can be printed. Please find more info on this feature here.
