Adding References and Rubber Stamps to Shipping Labels

This article explains how to automatically add custom label references, such as Product Title, UPC, or Order Number, to your shipping labels. We also outline which label references are available for each carrier.

For information on connecting to your various shipping accounts or setting up the SolidShip shipping tool, see our Related Articles.

NOTE: Some shipping carriers place limitations on the number of characters that can be printed as a custom label reference. While we print the maximum number of characters allowed, long references can potentially get truncated.

Adding Custom References to UPS Labels

UPS labels accommodate two custom label references. By default, SolidShip automatically prints the Solid Commerce Package ID in the Shipment Reference field when it prints UPS labels.

We send the references to UPS for all labels. However, references may not appear on the labels for all services. For example, references do not appear on Mail Innovations labels.

Default Corresponding Solid Commerce Information
Shipment Reference

Package ID

Order Number (blank by default)

 

You can use Shipping Rules to override the Shipment Reference or use the Order Number reference. For instructions on creating Shipping Rules, see Creating Shipping Rules to Automate Your Shipping.

1) Navigate to the Admin menu -> Manage Shipping Rules.

2) In your Shipping Rule, ensure you have selected a UPS Ship method from the right side of the rule.

We send the references to FedEx for all labels, including SmartPost. However, references may not appear on the labels for all services.
