In Settings, click on the shipping account, on the left. Then click on Shipment Defaults under that account.
These settings will automatically set shipping options when you press New Shipment on the main screen. These settings are best for global defaults that apply to all or nearly all of your shipments. For settings that you use frequently but not always, consider creating shipment templates.
These settings will apply to new shipments that begin life as shipments for this account. Because weight, service, etc may be changed by the shipper, these settings are applied once, and only if they are not imported from the ecommerce system. (for example, if an order comes in with a weight of 3, a default of 4 will not be applied).
Changing the shipping account will not change these values once they are set.
Available Defaults include:
If the reference comes through blank, the following merge codes can be used
|%OrderDateTime%||Order placed at Date and Time|
|%AlternativeOrderNum%||Varies by ecommerce system. For QuickBooks Desktop, this is the plain invoice or sales order number.|
|%ItemSKU%||The SKU value from eBay. If eBay Selling Manager Pro, Blackthorne, or a similar tool is used that populates the eBay SKU field. If not using Selling Manager Pro, it is the Custom Label field.|

or, if there is more than 28 characters of data, this prints:
07555; 18212; 234999; AND MORE
All SKUs in order with quantities. Up to 28 characters total (e.g. if there is data that does not fit, the text will say: AND MORE)
