Exporting Orders to Stamps.com
IN THIS GUIDE
Order Desk has the ability to export an XML file that easily imports into Stamps.com so you can send your orders to USPS to create labels. This integration is compatible with Windows computers. If you use a Mac, we recommend using Endicia instead.
Setup and Usage
If you already have a Stamps.com account, you can enable the Stamps.com integration in Order Desk and then follow these steps to begin sending orders to Stamps.com.
First, to set up your Stamps.com profile, you will need to export at least one order into an XML file. To do this, select the orders you want to export and click on the Stamps.com button. This will download the XML file to your computer.
You can leave the file in the location it downloads to or use a specific folder where you will move all of your XML files. In this example, we are moving the file from the download folder to a folder called Stamps.com. It won't matter which folder you use, as long as you consistently add all future XML exports to the same folder.
Next, go into the Stamps.com app ( download it to your Windows computer if you haven't already).
Click on Orders then Manage Data Source and select Add Source from the dropdown:
Select XML and click Next:
Type "Order Desk" for your Profile Name and click Next:
Now you can browse for the XML file you saved to your computer:
Review the settings and click Done.
On the next dialog box, choose XML: OrderDesk as your profile and click Done:
Once setup, you can export your orders the same way (select the orders to export and click the Stamps.com button in Order Desk and make sure the file is in the same folder/location from when you initially set up the integration).
Go into your Stamps.com app and click on Import Orders to bring them in:
