Orders can be sorted, filtered and organised the way you work. Print Packing and Picking lists, invoices or labels, send automated customer emails with tracking links and scheduled feedback reminders.

Export data to most UK carriers, design your own print templates, for anything from simple address labels, to complete invoices. they can include PPI images and prefilled CN22 forms. Optionally import and print carrier labels, on integrated label paper. 

Built in tabbed browser

The built in browser has all the features of a modern browser, and allows you to use and work with your shopping channel in the way you are familiar with.

In addition to the standard features of a modern browser, there are additional ones that are specifically designed for online sellers.

Options to startup your browser with the web sites you use most, and automatically login to your sales channel, mean that Packing Partner is ready to use, as soon as you open it.

There is no need to setup API or other complex access. Just collect your orders into Packing Partner, directly from the browser interface you are used to.

All your sales in one view

Process all your sales from different channels in one place, sort and filter your orders by criteria that helps you work more flexibly and efficiently.

Create shipping rules that allow you to determine the carrier and method you want to use for each sale. Optionally you can create export files for all the major UK carriers and create your own format for smaller ones.

Just like on your sales channel, Packing Partner organises your sales by their status, so you can see at a glance, how each order is progressing through your system.

Synchronise and transfer data between different locations, using FTP, local network or cloud storage.

Efficient shipping

Shipping rules allow you determine the exact carrier and method that is best for each parcel you ship. Using criteria contained in each sale, ensures that you use the most effective shipping method for each order.

For example you can specify orders over a particular value or weight go by a different method or carrier. You can just print this information, or create an export file for your carrier such as Royal Mail or MyHermes.

Export files for:

Despatch Express, Despatch Manager, DPD, DX, FedEx UK, Interlink, Low Cost Parcels, MyHermes, Net Despatch, TNT, UKMail and UPS.

Import labels from:

Currently we support importing of individual address label extracted from the PDF files produced by Despatch Manager, Interlink and MyHermes

Powerful layout designer

Based on an HTML drag and drop interface, the layout designer gives you the power to print any of the information contained in your sales records.

Position text and images anywhere on the printed page, and even choose what gets to be printed when an sales order flows onto more than one page.

Pre-defined frames and fields allow you to print VAT or non VAT invoices, select the correct PPI image and automatically print CN22 forms when required.

The latest version of the designer uses HTML5 and CSS3 to make your printed output more flexible than ever. Text and images can take advantage of any formatting that is available with modern HTML and CSS.
