Mav Farm Shipping is focused on making it easier and faster to fulfill orders. You can buy shipping labels directly in Mav Farm, print labels, and get orders out the door quickly. Mav Farm Shipping works with all major carriers around the world and offers multiple mail classes with each carrier, so you can access features like overnight delivery, package pick-ups, tracking information, international shipping, and more depending on the carrier and mail class you choose. We’ve worked with carriers directly to negotiate competitive rates for each shipping service, and those rates are automatically included at no extra cost to you.
When you want to ship an order, your shipping carrier is the company that takes your package and delivers it to your customer. Shipping carriers are companies like USPS or FedEx that physically deliver packages to your customer’s door or mailbox.
Each shipping carrier will offer multiple shipping services as well, to give you different options based on your budget and your needs. For example, in order to offer different options for your customers, you might be able to offer both a mail class that guarantees delivery within five business days and a more expensive one that guarantees delivery within two business days—all using the same carrier.
Once you’ve selected the carriers and shipping service you want to use, getting started with Mav Farm Shipping is simple. If you’re going to offer multiple options for your customers to choose from, and pass on the direct costs to them, make sure to select and enable the shipping service you’ll offer in Rates at Checkout settings. When creating a product, you’ll also want to ensure your product weights and dimensions are accurate, to make sure your shipping price estimates are too. When you’re ready to fulfill an order, here are the steps to ship with Mav Farm Shipping:
- Go to Sales and select the order you want to fulfill
- Review the order and print labels using selected carrier and mail classes
- Affix shipping label to package and put packing slip in package
