Dynamic Ship version 2.5 and newer contains a new feature that allows you to use placeholders in the package options. You can put placeholders into the following fields in the package options:
- Print Custom 1
- Print Custom 2
- Print Custom 3
- Invoice No.
Leave the values blank if they are not relevant to the order.
Note: Different carriers use different fields on their labels; experiment with each field to see which matches the carrier you are using. For example, FedEx uses Invoice No. and Print Custom 1 (Print Custom 2 and Print Custom 3 can be used if you change the code type to an appropriate FedEx type); UPS uses Print Custom 1 and Print Custom 2; USPS uses all four fields; and DHL uses none of the fields. These fields apply to the carrier commercial invoice report if any Print Custom field is set to the appropriate FedEx or UPS code; results with other carriers will vary.
The table below contains available placeholders (including the square brackets):
These package options can be added to:
- Individual packages on the Package Worksheet (Go to Process > Package Options).
- Default to all packages for a single customer by adding them to a package option template used in Dynamic Ship Customer Options.
- Default on all packages by adding them to the Default Package Option Template Code in Dynamic Ship Setup.
