For hassle-free return management, it is imperative to manage carriers and warehouses. With AfterShip Returns Center, you can do that with the utmost ease. Follow this guide closely to tick all the checkboxes.

⚙️ Set up settings

Labels


Step 1: Integration



Click Connect account to integrate your AfterShip Returns Center account with your Postmen account.

Step 2: Carrier accounts and services



After integrating your AfterShip Returns Center account with your Postmen account, these two cases are likely to happen:

Case 1: No carriers added to Postmen


In this case, you need to log in to your Postmen account and add your preferred carriers to proceed further.

Case 2: carriers are available


You’ll see all services provided by carriers and be able to enable QR codes (FedEx, DHL Germany, etc.).

If you want to manage available services, do that on your Postmen account.

Step 3: Warehouse locations



Click Add warehouse location and enter all the details accurately.

Step 4: Package sizes



Click Add package size and specify package sizes for each type of label.

Step 5: Labels



Please note that the packing slip generation is only available for Pro, Premium, and ENT plan users.



Move the "toggle" to the right to automatically generate packing slips along with the return labels.

On the same page



On separate pages



- You can choose to include barcode on the packing slip to increase warehouse handling efficiency.
