Shipium Console Introduction

Configure and maintain your organization's account in the Shipium Console.

About the Shipium Console

You'll access Shipium's services via our user platform, the Shipium Console, and by calling our APIs (APIs Introduction). The Shipium Console enables you to configure and manage your organization's account within the Shipium platform. Using the console, you can:

  • manage account users and roles;
  • configure and manage fulfillment network settings;
  • manage, test, and print shipping labels;
  • track shipments; and
  • access reporting and metrics.

Guidance for setting up configurations within the console can be found in Console Configuration.

Access the console

To start, you will need to have a Shipium account. You can find out how to get started in Get Started With Shipium, learn how to set up Your Shipium Account, and read more about account user Authentication methods. You may also be interested in single sign-on for your account users.

Once you have an account and your users are set up, you can access the Shipium Console.

Console organization and functions

The basic layout of the console includes a lefthand navigation menu and an account widget at the top right of the page. The navigation menu contains links for label printing, team management, and configuration in addition to specific settings for carrier selection, delivery reporting, and tracking. The account widget is where you can access account settings and log out of the application. You also can switch between accounts if applicable to your organization. In addition, you can check Shipium's platform service status and access the API documentation from the navigation menu.
