Order filters are a life saver when it comes to managing large numbers of orders, or those collected over large periods of time.

Displays distinguished bundles for a certain number and variety of parts/products that can be shipped under one freight pallet in order to maximize the efficiency of shipping costs and establish fixed rates. Freight bundling is a unique and wonderful way to save on shipping costs, and get the most out of a shipping method.
Freight bundling is similar in structure and simplicity to that of the Mix N' Match Grouping page. All freight bundles are displayed in a group tile format that summarizes key information and can be customized easily. Bundles display three critical pieces of information include: Group Size, Base Price, and Total Items.
Group Size: Based on a point system, each item in a bundle accounts for a total point size that accumulates between all items in a bundle. When that bundle exceeds the max designated point size it cannot fit in the bundle in question.
Base Price: Base shipping price of a bundle.
Total Items: The total number of items in an existing bundle.
Creating a New Bundle
To create a new bundle, click New Bundle in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
Editing a Bundle
To edit a bundle, click View on any existing bundle.
Bundles are broken down into two components, properties of a bundle, and the freight items in a bundle.
Properties consist of the description, the base rate of the bundle, the maximum number of points allowed in the bundle, non-contiguous and international charges (if necessary), and stack rate options or how the bundle will behave with Freight Shipping methods.
Every freight item added to a bundle must have a designated point value in order to maximize the efficiency of a pallet.
