Batches

Batch processing allows you to process a large number of shipments in a fraction of the time it would take to process the shipments manually. Unlike the standard process to create a shipment, the batch process leverages the Temando API, which is synchronized to your Magento installation.

At this time, batch processing is available only for domestic shipments.

The Batches grid lists the available Magento Shipping batches, the number of shipments in each, and their status. You can view the detail of a single batch, print packing slips, and shipping labels. The grid at the bottom of the page lists the shipments in the batch.
