Rule Manager is a time-saving shipping tool designed to simplify sending parcels. You can control how your shipments are imported in Shipping Manager by creating your own rules specific to your needs. Rules will apply to any orders in Shipping Manager, including manual orders and any imported eCommerce orders and CSV uploads.
A 'Condition' tells the Rule Manager what to look for when shipments are imported - for example, destination country, destination postcode, or shipping platform.
An 'Action' is the change applied to your imported shipments - for example, service, parcel weight, or transit cover.
The Interparcel Rule Manager is available for free to all our customers.Get Started Today
