Enterprise Shipper®(ES)- User Guide


The purpose of this Guide is to provide user instructions for ES.


ES is an economical, easy-to-use, multi-carrier package shipping system. The software runs on a shipper’s local area network to create domestic and international shipping labels using shipping APIs from EasyPost, International Bridge, and Pitney Bowes.

ES calls all mail packages (including letters and envelopes).

ES currently supports USPS parcel shipping and multiple UPS, FedEx, and DHL Express accounts (perfect for fulfillment operations). Payment methods for USPS packages are “ePostage” (a new payment technology that is easy to work with), e-VS, or PC Postage. Local USPS approvals are unnecessary with any of these options, and with e-Postage and PC Postage, the Client (user) controls the funding.

Rate shopping across all these carriers (USPS, UPS, FedEx, and DHL Express) is also available, either through manual carrier selection by the user or automatic carrier selection using rate shopping profiles.

ES currently supports the following classes of US Mail:

  • Priority Express parcels

  • Priority Mail parcels and flat rate envelopes

  • First-Class parcels

  • First-Class flats*

  • First-Class letters*

  • Bound Printed Matter parcels

  • Library Rate parcels

  • Media Mail parcels

  • Parcel Select Ground parcels

  • International First-Class Mail

  • International Priority Mail

  • International Priority Express Mail

*Requires payment using PC Postage.

ES’s workflow options help you ship more accurately, faster, and less expensively.

Whether mailers want to batch process an imported order file or lookup address or order information from a local data source in real-time, ES can do it all. ES also can validate address information to ensure package delivery and reduce returns/refunds. If postage payment is via ePostage when shipping First-Class Mail International, Priority Mail International, and Priority Mail Express International, ES provides mailers approximately 15% off Commercial Plus postage.

Multiple installations of ES can exist in one location (each install requires a separate registration key). When installing the software initially,all installs should use the same SQL instance. When updates to the software become available, a software update must be performed on each server and workstation using the application.

In ES, there are "global" settings. Global means completing or setting up these settings on the server or a computer will be applied to all computers using the same data source/SQL instance. In addition, the application has workstation settings that are specific to each computer and will not carry over to other computers using the same data source.
