Label Icons on Packing Labels
Label Icons are printed on Packing Labels to convey various bits of information that is useful to your warehouse and/or drivers. They can be enabled in various ways, either by checking a box on a customer account or depending on order type or if a specific keyword is found in the customer's special instructions.
Icons are printed at the top left on the packing label, underneath your companies logo.
Most Used Icons
No Plastic Bag Icon
Enabled via a checkbox on the customer account, it means the customer has requested that they don't want any plastic packaging in their account. Set by admins only. Read More
If you use bins/totes and the customer NEVER returns them to you, you can set the 'use cardboard box' flag on their account and this icon will be printed on every order label they have. Set by admins on the customer account, and is permanent until an admin un-checks the flag.
Printed if a customer has the word 'cooler' in their special instructions. This signifies that your driver should expect to leave the box or unpack the box into a cooler that the customer has left out. When packing the box, if it has a cooler icon, you may want to put all items in a large bag or something else to make it easier to transfer the contents from a box/bin to a cooler. Generated automatically based on keyword.
Printed on the label of the first order a customer ever receives. Useful to know that you should include a welcome letter. Check out our blog post on why you should include a welcome letter. Generated automatically by the system.
Used to signify to your warehouse and drivers that the customer is a very important person, and their order should be treated with EXTRA caution and care. Maybe they are a celebrity, maybe someone with a lot of influence, maybe a long-time customer, maybe someone that just will complain every week if there is even one little thing wrong in their order. Set by admins on the customer account. Permanent, unless an admin un checks the flag on the customer account and will be printed on every order.
Signifies that this is a gift box, purchased by one person and sent to another. You can use this to include promotional materials to try to convert that gift recipient into a customer, or use it to know that special packaging/materials should be used. Generated automatically.
First Box on Trial Account
Similar to the Star Icon, but used on accounts where the schedule type is 'one time trial'. Generated automatically.
First Box using a Gift Certificate
Similar to the Star Icon, it's printed on the first order a customer receives that signed up using a Gift Certificate. Helpful to know what promotional materials you should include with their order. Generated automatically.
If you generate a 'pick up order', which is an empty order that forces your driver to stop at a former customer's house to 'pick up' any shipping materials, bins, or boxes that they still have, this icon will be printed on the label. Generated automatically, but an admin must generate the pick up order.
Rarely Used or Deprecated Icons
These icons are mostly used with old promotional sites and some of these might not even work anymore.
