Shipments can be used to create partial shipments or distributions. For each shipment, some or all of an item's quantity can be allocated to it. Shipping labels, invoices and packing slips can be printed for each shipment and will calculate quantities and prices appropriately.


Shipments can be used to create actual shipments and retrieve rates with live carriers via the Shippo integration. (See Integrations-Shippo)


Note: Shipments can only be entered for orders. If you are working on a quote, the quote will have to be converted to an order before proceeding.
