In this article we will explain how to show a USPS through Endicia shipping label when using a custom rate for shipping on your store. This feature allows you to print USPS postage with our USPS Shipping via Endicia extension even if you offer your customers free shipping, flat-rate shipping, or some other shipping method during checkout.
The way to configure this option, you will firstly need a custom rate on your store for the shipping. This can be done through such extension as Premium Matrixrate and Product Matrix.
Once you have this you will need to configure the ‘USPS through Endicia’ extension so that the option ‘Use Shipping labels’ is set to Yes. In this scenario the extension can be either Enabled or Disabled through this admin panel as it will display the Shipping Labels in both scenarios.
You will now need to place an order through the site using the custom rate shipping method.
When clicking on the order you will see the following configuration option. This is where you will now need to click on the ‘Ship’ option in the top right hand corner of this page. From here you will now see the shipment creation page, you will need to select the option called ‘Create Shipping label’. This option allows for the shipping label to be created within the order:
Once you have selected the ‘Create Shipping label’ option and clicked on Submit Shipment it will then bring out this following page:
Within this page you will need to select the tick box under ‘Ship USPS via Endicia’
You will then need to fill out the rest of the information within this label configuration as shown in the screenshot below:
Once this has been committed then when you go to the ‘Shipment’ tab within the order you will be shown the following page. This is where you can view the shipping label that you have created for this order through clicking on the highlighted option:
This will then show the following document with the Shipping Label for USPS through Endicia, even though the customer has chosen a custom rate at the frontend of the store.
