Through July, the Easyship team has worked hard to improve the site and introduce new features, all designed to make shipping even easier for our users. We’ve added a new feature, Saved Views, so that you can easily save filters when managing shipments; revamped our store page for a cleaner look and added tips in notifications; and launched our latest guide on how to develop strategies for managing returns.

We’re also rolling out some exciting new courier services in different parts of the world, and, as always, creating content for our blog that aims to improve your knowledge in eCommerce, logistics, and crowdfunding.

Saved Views for Speedier Shipment Management

We’ve introduced a new feature for the dashboard, Saved Views, which allows you to easily save your filters from the Advanced and Manage shipments pages, saving you from entering the filter criteria each time.

You can save as many views as you need and can easily switch between views by selecting the desired Saved View from the menu above the filter bar. We currently have 16 different filter categories on the Easyship dashboard, offering you numerous ways to sort shipments, so this will be a powerful tool for quickly looking up shipments. To learn how to set up Saved Views, head over to our Help Center.

If you need some quick ideas, here are a few of our favorite suggestions:  

  • Overnight shipments
  • Hot sellers
  • Amazon Shipments
  • USPS shipments
  • In Transit
  • Return shipments
