Shiptheory Integration

Shiptheory is a shipping integration application. It connects your business directly to carriers, allows you to set shipping rules to control how orders are sent with your carriers, and print shipping labels. By integrating Shiptheory with DEAR, you can import the tracking number to DEAR and print automatically generated shipping labels during the DEAR ship process. 

For more information, please refer to Shiptheory.

Printing Shipping Labels

DEAR allows printing of shipping labels from Shiptheory. This option appears at the Ship tab of the sales process for Simple Sales and Advanced Sales. You can also print shipping labels from the DEAR Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) app. 

  1.  On a new or existing sale, process the sale as far as the Ship tab. Make sure you have entered a valid shipping address in the Shipping Address field – Shiptheory only works with real addresses.

  2.  Click Shipping Label. The page to enter shipment and recipient details will be displayed.

  3. Enter all the required fields marked with the red asterisk. 
  4. Click Generate Label. The Ship tab carrier info will be automatically filled in, including the tracking number.

The Shipping Label will be generated automatically in PDF format, where it can be printed.
