Royal mail is a courier service mostly operating in the UK. This is very useful as a large number of artsy people who love Etsy live there. Therefore, to create a beneficial shipping procedure you, as a business owner, should create a Royal Mail and Etsy integration. However, to do so may be a challenge if you do not use any third party software.
In order to remove this disadvantage we highly recommend to use the best shipping management software in the world - Multiorders. Multiorders, in the long run, can help you automate not only shipping but also order management and inventory management processes.
Royal Mail and Etsy Integration
First of all, let’s take a look at shipping management with Multiorders software. As soon as you create Royal mail and Etsy integration you can start shipping. When you receive an order through Multiorders you can print shipping labels in only a few clicks, with no additional costs.
Furthermore, you can automatically update sales channels with tracking information. Which means that Multiorders does this automatically for you. Therefore you can focus on other important tasks which require your full attention.
Another great feature that you get with Royal mail and Etsy integration is that you can easily print additional documents. Such as invoices, return forms, delivery notes and packing lists. These important documents can be printed at any time or together with the shipping label.
Even more, you can merge orders if they are going to the same address and save additional shipping costs. This is a great way to cut expenditure and divert money to business expansion.
To move forward, here are the basic steps you should follow in order to integrate Etsy:
- Log in to your Multiorders account.
- Go to Integrations.
- Find the Etsy icon and click on it.
- In the pop-up window fill in the needed information and click Connect.
That is it. In the process, you will be asked to log in to your store and allow access to it. After that, you can manage your Etsy store through Multiorders and forget about constant logging in and out.

Next, you need to integrate Royal mail and finish the Royal mail and Etsy integration as a whole. Follow the basic steps below to complete the integration:
- Log in to Multiorders.
- Go to Integrations and find the Royal Mail icon.
- Click on it. In the pop-up window fill in the needed information, click connect and we will take care of everything else.
After you complete this, the Royal mail and Etsy integration process will be completed. Remember to adjust the shipping settings before you start shipping as this will ease the shipping process even more.
Shipping management settings
Furthermore, to adjust shipping settings just go to Settings → Shipping. There you can add information about your warehouse which will be added to the invoice if you choose so. Also, you can create shipment presets. In other words, you can create your regular packages dimensions and assign a default carrier to that package. As a result, when you need to ship an item you can just add this preset instead of filling information manually.
In addition, to use Royal mail and Etsy integration to the fullest you can select the wanted label format. If you cannot find the one you would like to use, you can request a custom label. However, this may take more time as our team members will have to do it separately. Though if you choose the one from the default, you can start using it instantly.
Lastly, in this part of settings, at the bottom of the page, you can adjust the documentation. In short, just mark the fields with the information which you want to see in the invoice, delivery note, picking list, purchase orders, shipping label and return form. Everything is straightforward and you can readjust these settings at any time.
