If you have a lot of orders to fulfill, you can speed up this process by using the bulk fulfillment feature.
To bulk fulfill orders, navigate to Orders in the left navigation panel and select the orders you would like to fulfill by using the small tick boxes next to each order number. Once you have selected your orders to fulfill, scroll back to the top and select “Bulk actions”. Using this feature, you will be able to Fulfill and Ship, download the shipping labels for those orders, archive or mark the orders as ‘completed’.
Once you’ve clicked “Fulfill and Ship”, you can review the orders, as well as the courier and shipping rates. The rates you receive will be either the cheapest or fastest option, based on your fulfillment settings. To change this setting, head over to Settings > Shipping > Default rates display.
If you are fulfilling orders in bulk, remember to use manifests. What is a manifest? It is a document listing all the shipping labels of the parcels that need to be collected by a courier on a specific day. Downloading and using a manifest means that the driver who is doing the collection will only need to sign one document, rather than the shipping label for each parcel. You can then keep the signed manifest as proof of collection.
