Set Customized Preset Parcel Sizes With the New Saved Packages Feature and Shipping Settings Menu

by EasyPost

We’re excited to announce a free major quality-of-life feature for our shippers! EasyPost users can now create up to 30 personalized and reusable package settings for their shipments in the Saved Packages menu.

Businesses often have a handful of tried-and-true boxes, flats, and mailers that can support all of their products. By saving these common sizes to your EasyPost account, you can reduce the time spent creating each shipping label. The Saved Packages menu can be found under the new Shipping Settings dropdown.

Custom preset parcel dimensions with Saved Packages

What can you do with the new Saved Packages feature? Here’s a quick overview:

  • Enter custom length, width, and height dimensions in inches or centimeters, or choose from a list of common carrier packages (i.e. USPS Small Flat Rate Box).
  • Set custom names for each Saved Package.
  • Save up to 30 unique package presets.
  • Select a Saved Package setting from the Create Label tool.
  • Add, remove, and manage your Saved Packages at any time.
