Configure shipping labels


Configure shipping labels

Add a default box size and HS codes.

Learn how to configure settings for shipping labels with Dashboard. Settings include a default box size for batch labels and managing classification settings for labels and commercial invoices.

Shipping label settings 

To configure your shipping labels, log in to Dashboard and navigate to Settings -> Labels.

Default box size

Add a default box size to your account. This is required if you want to create batch labels, in which case the default box size will be used as a fallback for creating labels when no box size is applied to the order.

A default box size is required to use the batch label feature.

  1. Go to Dashboard -> Settings -> Labels.
  2. Add the Length, Width, and Height for your most commonly used box size.
  3. Click Save.

Default service level

Set the shipping service level for your labels to default to when first creating a new label without an order. Otherwise the label will fill in the shipping used when the order was created.

  1. Go to Dashboard -> Settings -> Labels.
  2. Under Default service level select shipping service level most often used by your store.
  3. Click Save.

Classification settings

By default, Zonos will fall back to using your account's default HS code on labels and commercial invoices if no HS code is passed with the item details on an order.

Additionally, labels created with Zonos have the ability to take advantage of our Zonos Classify automatic HS code detection. This is an opt-in feature that will attempt to classify your products by description or SKU (depending on which settings you pick) and insert the resulting HS code into the label and commercial invoice.

  1. Go to Dashboard -> Settings -> Labels.
  2. Under Classification settings select how items should be classified if no HS code is provided:
    1. Auto-classify order items by description
    2. Classify SKU
    3. Classify description
    4. Fallback to default HS code



Create and manage brokers that can be applied during the label creation process.
