How do I print out CanadaPost Shipping Labels?
To print CanadaPost Labels from your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager, please use the following steps:
If the Contract Number is not present but rather a Customer Number and API Username and Password are present you will have to click the "UNREGISTER FROM CA POST" button to re-enter the credentials by logging into your Canada Post account.
We recommend you save the currently present information to Notepad for easy retrieval before unregistering.
Printing Canada Post Shipping Labels
A pop up window will come up showing you the order details and the carriers integrated with your store.
The shipping label will be presented in a PDF format from which you can print it out on your thermal or inkjet printer.
End of Day Manifest
Canada Post requires that you transmit your day's work at the end of the day in order to get your account's daily manifest. This is a very important step that needs to be done when you've printed up your last label of the day. Failure to do so may result in delayed orders and unsatisfied shoppers.
To do this, follow the steps outlined above and - when you print out your final label for the day - click on the Transmit Shipments Button located on the label generation window.
This will transmit the day's shipments over to Canada post for the End of Day manifest. You can view the manifest afterward by clicking on the label manager button for the last order, and clicking on the "View Manifests" button which will show you the manifests for the last 7 days.
