Change Origin Address When Creating Shipments
When creating a shipment and entering the sender address, select a saved origin address by clicking the drop-down menu as pictured below.
Alternatively, enter an origin address manually by toggling An existing address to No. The address entered will automatically save for future use.
This feature can be accessed when Creating Shipments in Basic or Advanced mode.
Automate Origin Address With Shipping Rules
To automate origin addresses based on specific shipment conditions, you'll need to create a shipping rule. Navigate to Settings > Shipping Rules.
In this example, if a shipment is going to California, we want to ship from a San Fransisco facility to save money. We'll name this rule California Warehouse. Sart by setting the following condition: Destination state or province is - California. Make sure to save the condition after selecting.
Now on to the Action: New action is Ship From and then proceed to select an existing address.
Click Save and Create your Shipping Rule. It should look like this in your Active Shipping Rules.
