On the Carrier Management screen, the "Manage Third-Party Account Info" field is used for the third party account setup.
Screen Path: Entity > Carrier Management
After this setup, if the "bill third party?" toggle is active, the carrier labels will be generated with the third party's account number.
In this process, you can add more than one account number for the label generation process and you can use different account numbers for your channels. If your store is a Master Channel like ShipStation, Channel Advisor and Shippo, you can choose Linked Channel, but it is not a Master Channel, Linked Channel comes as close.
On the packing station, during the label generation, there is no pop-up for the account number selection. Because of that, this process will be done with these steps,
If the carrier setup is defined as "bill third party" option,
- If there is an account number for the channel of the order and this account is set as "default", get the label with this account number.
- If there is not an account number for the channel of the order but if there is an account number with no connection to any channel, get the label with this account number.
- If there is not an account number for the channel of the order and there is no account number without channel information, then get the label with the credential's account number which defined on the carrier management screen.
Batch Label & Get Rate and Set Package Details Buttons
If you add a third-party account with the "channel" information and "default" toggle is active, while you getting a label from the carrier, this account number will be used. But, you can change the account number on the opened pop-up on these buttons.
