A common request that we get from clients is the option to have shipping integration in QuickBooks. Although there are many add on’s that do shipping, many people don’t realize that QuickBooks and QuickBooks Point of Sale both have a built in Shipping Manager. With the Shipping manager, You can ship directly from QuickBooks by using your existing FedEx, UPS, or United States Postal Service account (UPS only for POS), or you can sign up for an account through the QuickBooks Shipping Manager.
Specifically, you can process a shipment and prepare a shipping label—with the “ship to” information prefilled—directly from both the QuickBooks Invoice and Sales Receipt windows. You can also track shipments from within QuickBooks. Access it in one of the following ways:
-From the Invoice window, click the Ship button on the toolbar and choose FedEx, UPS, or USPS. Then click OK.
-From the Sales Receipt window, click the Ship button on the toolbar and choose FedEx, UPS, or USPS. Then click OK.
-Choose File > Shipping. Then click Ship FedEx Package, Ship UPS Package, or Ship USPS Package.
Follow the onscreen instructions to set up the service. If you do not have an existing FedEx, UPS, or USPS account number, you can open an account from within the Shipping Manager. Once you have completed the set up process, you can find out more about the Shipping form and Shipping options by clicking the Help button inside the Shipping Manager.
