3. On the next page you are given a form to fill in, I am going to split this into two images as its quite long. First of all fill in a name(this will only be used inside Zenstores as a reference), then fill in your PPI number this usually starts with HQ. Then below this is a series of check-boxes uncheck any services you don't want available to you.

4. Then in the 'label' drop down select your label type, this will most likely be whatever your current label format is. If you want and  your labels are large enough (102x75mm) you can add a picking list to your labels, this can be done by ticking the 'Include picking list on your labels' check-box. Just below this you can decide what information you want to populate your picking list with, you can have product titles, SKU's or listing ID'S. Then finally click 'Save courier'.
