Packing slips are printed copies of the customer order that are packed with the items. Having a packing slip tells you what to pick and allows you to double check the order while packing. The packing slip also tells the customer what is inside the package. Creating a packing slip can be done manually or using a template from your fulfillment software. You can also use a printed copy of a customer order as a packing slip. If you print out a packing slip for each order placed, you can use the pile of packing slips as your to-do list while filling orders. This will help make sure every order gets filled.
Here’s the information often included on the packing slip:
· Customer identification (name, address)
· Order identification (such as order number, date, or purchase order number)
· Products ordered
· Quantity ordered
· Store contact information (name, phone/email, address)
· Shipping information (service)
