The use of shipping notice watermark is a revolution brought by ebizship to the shipping label generating technology. A shipping notice watermark will dramatically help user to identify a shipping label and know what is needed to do with the shipping label. By default, the Product Template Description, Transaction Item Title (ebay item title), tracking number and shipping label name will be selected as the shipping notice and be printed on shipping label.
c. E-mail Notifications: Email notifications are used to send e-mails to the user and the recipient indicating the shipment status, such as pick up, delivered, and so on.

b. Name: Select a unique and meaningful "name" for each product template, such as wii console, wii fit, wii console+play+nunchuk to distinguish with other transactions.
c. Description: Carefully write the "description" to reflect what you want to do to recognize and handle the package, such as "new wii console, take out receipt", "take out office basic cd", "add a Bluetooth adapter" and so on.
d. Default: check this box if the shipping template is the most common one.
e. Linked Domestic Shipping Template: Select a "Linked Domestic Shipping Template" if you always want to use this specific shipping method for this product. Note: You still can change the shipping template before you print the shipping label.
f. Product Template Keywords: The system will automatically match the transaction title with the keywords to identify the relevant product template after you download the transactions or set up the keywords. Please carefully select the Product Template Keywords and make the Product Template Keywords unique for each different eBay items. You might want to simply put the whole eBay title as the "All These Words". You can test the keywords After you download the transactions. Some examples: Wii console only-> All These Words: "new wii console only", Wii console, play, nunchuk bundle-> All These Words: "new wii console play nunchuk bundle", Wii console and wii play bundle-> All These Words: "new wii console play" Not Any of These Words: "nunchuck".
