NRGship UPS Pro Simplifies Gift Box Fulfillment

NRGship UPS Pro supports the ability to produce custom label messaging on laser and thermal labels. Order data can be imported from sources like Yahoo! stores can include additional text that customers would like to include on an order, and they will be included on your shipping labels.

Customers who are shipping from FileMaker Pro can easily add this function to their shipping integration by following instructions from our KnowledgeBase article.
