PREP & SHIP is an updated version that combines Batch listing and shipment creation and packing. The interface is very similar to Boxt with a few changes. Some buttons have moved but if you are familiar with the old Boxt it will be relatively easy to convert. Below we discuss the differences in the user interface and talk about new features to efficiently prep, label and pack inbound shipments.


  • Login to
  • Review all Listing, Packing, and Printer settings under Settings->PREP & SHIP
  • Quick settings allow you to quickly change common listing and column visibility options:

  • Printer settings will carryover from the previous version, but they can be verified in Settings->PREP & SHIP->Printing

The New User Interface

  • Everything in one place. POs, batches, shipments, and boxes are visible together.
  • Customize the screen layout for the workflow. e.g. hide shipment while working on batches and visa versa.
  • PO settings apply to all batches: FBA or FBM, Multipack or Item-prep, and tags:
  • Filter batches by Only items to be received, Only items with errors, and Exclude items already in shipments.
  • Search across POs, Batches, Shipments, and Boxes to locate inventory. Search bar is at the bottom and will accept new searches without clearing. Click the x in the lower right-hand corner to clear the search text or tap the ESC key:
  • Add an item to batch by ASIN, MSKU, UPC, or keyword/title.
  • Add tags for POs, batches, batch items, inventory, and shipments.

Inventory Sync

  • Newly added inventory is automatically synced when added to a batch. 
  • If the inventory exists in Seller Central it will be visible in PREP & SHIP.

Ship From Location

  • PREP & SHIP uses the Google Places API to automatically merge ship-from locations when the address differs but is the same physical address. Add, update, or merge addresses HERE.
