At Interparcel we believe that sending large amounts of orders should be as simple as sending one. That's why we created our free Shipping Manager to give our customers a quick, simple and streamlined way of uploading and processing their deliveries. One of the features of our Shipping Manager is the ability to integrate with an online store or upload orders via CSV files.
If you don't currently sell on an eCommerce marketplace store and you have many orders to process from your website or over the phone, the CSV upload feature is for you.
Why upload a CSV file to our Shipping Manager?
Quick to process
Uploading a CSV file is much quicker than manually entering each order into Shipping Manager or generating an individual quote for each parcel, especially if you're processing multiple orders. You can upload 10,000 orders in less time than manually booking just one! This is a real time-saver if you send corporate client gifts during popular holidays like Christmas or Easter.
When orders are added from a CSV upload, Shipping Manager double-checks your data and determines that the carriers will have all of the required information. If Shipping Manager detects any missing phone numbers or parcel weights, it sets a flag to let you know what's missing and how to fix it – all in one place.
Ready-made template available
We offer a downloadable template where you can enter/copy the details of your orders for a quick upload. However, you can use your own template if you prefer. You just need to grab a cuppa and spend a few minutes mapping out your fields via drag and drop- don't worry, you only need to do this once and it's really simple to do.
Choice of services
Interparcel gives you instant access to the best courier services at discounted prices. Starting from £1.75 (ex. VAT) a parcel, it's a no-brainer to book all your deliveries in one place and at an affordable price!

How do I upload a CSV file to our Shipping Manager?
1) Locate Shipping Manager
Select 'Business Tools' on the Account drop-down menu and click 'Shipping Manager'.
2) Choose CSV upload
Click on the 'Fetch Orders' button and choose 'Import from CSV'
3) Select your preferred CSV template
You can create a new template to match your data or download an example template and modify it where needed.
4) Upload orders using our Default Interparcel Template
Download the example and enter the details of your orders. If you're shipping multiple parcels in one order, you'll need to enter the information in two lines with the same customer reference number.
Save the template on your computer as a CSV file (comma delimited), then drag your CSV file into the upload box, or click to browse from your computer. Your orders will automatically appear in your Shipping Manager to process!
5) Or, upload orders using your template
If you prefer to upload your own template, select 'Create a New Template' and upload your chosen CSV file. You'll then need to name the template and match the Interparcel fields with the uploaded ones. When finished, click OK, and the orders will automatically be uploaded and ready to process!
