Creating Shipping Documents with ShippyPro is really easy. With just a few clicks, you'll be able to create a Picking List, for example.
This document is really useful to prepare your shipments and fulfill your customers' orders quickly.
Generally, a picking list shows order details, SKUs, recipient address, items description and price.
📌 Note: you need to enable Article Details from My Profile > Preferences > Carriers preferences for that to be show in the Picking List.
Let's see how to create it step by step! 🔍
1. Ship your orders
Remember that you first need to ship your orders from Label Creator > To Ship to be able to generate the relative Picking List. Learn how to do it step by step here:
2. Select your Shipments
In Shipping Labels, select only the shipments you'd like to include inside the Picking List.
🔎 Tip 1 : If you'd like to select more than 50 orders in one time, consider displaying more orders on Shipping Labels page from the bar at the top of the page.
🔎 Tip 2: To speed up your order picking, you can order your shipments by different SKUs, so that you know how many items with the same SKU you need to pick up.
In order to do it, click on My Profile > Preferences.
You'll see a box called Orders table ordering and reference in the lower left corner.
The shipments on Shipping Labels are ordered by ShippyPro Order Number by default, if you'd like to change this parameter
Click on > Items SKU to order them by SKUs:
Select all the orders and follow the following steps.
3. Create the Picking List 📄
Click then on Management > Create Picking List to create it.
You'll be then redirected to a new tab with your Picking List on it. You can either print it or download it directly!
Here's how it looks:

It's possible to generate an order list that can be edited in Excel.
Select all the orders you'd like to include and click then on Shipping Labels > Management > Create Excel:
From the window that pops up, you can delete the fields you don't want to include and order the columns.
