If orders contain the same item or one of a small number of SKUs

If you have a pre-order that came in, a flash sale or just a huge seller one day, you’ll be shipping dozens, hundreds or thousands of the exact same item. There’s likely no need to scan each item and there’s no need to weight each package because they’re all the same, you just want to pack all the items and slap labels on them.

ShipHero bulk ship generates up to 500 orders at a time, and averages 80 orders per minute unless you use Cheapest, which is slower as each order has to be quoted.
You can do this process entirely on the web from the Bulk Ship page

First search for the item. In our example it’s Goku

You’ll see all the orders that contain just that item.

The filter by quantity to get the orders that have 1 unit.

You have additional options you can filter by including Status and Shipping Method
Select All and Print

In the print pop you’ll set the box size and weight of the shipment. For customers that ship via USPS you can also choose if it’ll fit in one or more regional and/or flat rate boxes.

Then print.

We check the shipping method and carrier that’s mapped to each order and print via that method, so some might ship via UPS 2nd Day Air and others via USPS Priority Mail if that’s the mapping you defined. If any or all are mapped to the Cheapest method we’ll quote in real time and print via the appropriate method.

The labels will print from your attached printing station. The labels will have the order number and the SKU that’s in the order printed on them in the reference fields.

You can choose whether or not to also print an invoice at the same time. Invoices print in the same order as the labels.

You can see the status of your batches along with tracking and any errors.

You can then filter by quantity 2 and ship all the orders that have exactly 2 units of that SKU and no other items.
