Easyship will generate a shipment manifest form for all your USPS shipments. The manifest form provides a single barcode that USPS can scan to process several packages at once, rather than scanning each individual parcel.
Generating USPS Scan Form
Navigate to the 'Manage Shipments' section shown in the left-hand column of your Easyship Dashboard.
Click the 'Actions' button on the top left-hand corner of the 'Manage Shipments' section. You will notice there is a menu option titled 'Generate Manifest'.
Click on the 'Generate Manifest' menu option. Provided you have shipments with USPS that are to be picked up or dropped off you can now generate a manifest form for your chosen handover date.
Choose the correct handover date and generate your manifest by clicking the green 'Manifest' button. The manifest will now be generated and made available for download.
Your shipment manifest is now ready to download. Click the blue 'Manifest' button to download your document.
If you generate a manifest before all of your labels for the day have been created, the only labels that will appear in your manifest are those that were ready when the manifest was generated. This means that if you generate a manifest in the morning, then create more shipments in the afternoon, the new labels will not be added to the original manifest. You will need to create a new manifest for these labels.
Manifests will be separated by pickup location. This means that if you have several pickup addresses you will be able to generate manifests for each location. The manifest is created based on the sender's zip code.
In order for labels to appear in your manifest, the manifest must be generated on the same day that your labels were created. The manifest can be generated for labels created that same day, or for labels created with hand-over dates up to 5 business days in the future. For example, if you create several labels on July 1st with a hand-over date on July 5th, you must create the manifest on July 1st and choose July 5th as the handover date (see Step 3). You would not be able to generate the manifest for these labels after July 1st.
Manifests must be created before 11 pm EST.
