How to select default shipping for creating labels in bulk or disable USPS Parcel Select Ground

SHopify recently added USPS Parcel Select Ground. I ship 95% of my packages USPS Priority Mail and have a pretty high volume. 30-40 orders a day. Ever since Parcel Select Ground was added, when I create shipping labels in bulk it defaults all my orders to Parcel Select Ground.  The difference in price is only 10 cents but the few packages I did ship Parcel Select took 10-14 days to arrive vs 2-3 days.

 

I contacted support and they said there is no way to set a default shipping method. It will default to he cheapest available option Shopify offers. 

 

I can create 20 labels at a time but then have to go through and change each one to Priority Mail and it is taking a LOT of time.

The only work around I have found is to process one label selecting Priority Mail then the rest will default to Priority Mail but it will default back to Ground Select later in the day.

I'm with ya man. I posted something similar. I have no idea why that service was added. Why would anybody use that to save 20 cents. It's just a huge PITA to work around. But my guess is that the response (if any) will be the usual... 'Gee, we have this great app you can buy to avoid that.'

I agree. You should be able to select a default. I've accidentally selected the new parcel select many times because they forced this onto everyone's workflow. Then I have to void the labels and make it again with Priority. A few cents is not worth the extremely long transit. The Parcel Select is ONLY beneficial for certain box size/weight x distance. 95% of the time it is not worth it.

Thank you for posting this ... I'm having the exact same issue. Hopefully Shopify addresses this ASAP.
