LibShip: How it works

To use LibDib, it is a requirement that Makers ship all orders via LibShip, our fixed rate shipping program that saves both time and money. Any order that is acquired through, facilitated by, or processed by LibDib that is not promptly shipped via LibShip will result in a $25 per case fee, due immediately. LibDib has partnered with FedEx to offer simplified pricing, automated tracking and enhanced features. Note: For LibShip pricing information click here.

Step 1: Agreement and LibShip Certified 

To be eligible for LibShip, the shipper must have an Alcohol Shipping Agreement with FedEx. Learn more on how to do that with FedEx Alcohol Requirements and LibShip: How to set up an Alcohol Shipping Agreement.

Once you have a FedEx Shipping License, sign into LibDib and add this info to your profile under “Compliance”.

Note on residential addresses:

If you have a residential address for your business, please contact FedEx directly. They require an explanation to show that your product is shipping from a different address than the one listed on the license. To get approved, this must be completed before you submit your application.

Step 2: Receive an order

Once you receive an order, LibDib will send the standard FFO (Fulfillment Order) email. Click on the "Download LibShip Label" button. That will bring you to your ORDERS tab. From there follow the prompts to get your LibShip labels. 

  1. Select LibDib - FedEx (LibShip’s carrier). Select your preferred label size. If you have a 6x4 label printer, your steps for printing may be different than normal. For help, see FedEx’s support page here.
  2. Add the weight of your individual shipment. *If you have more than one case, when you click ADD ANOTHER SHIPMENT, a new line will appear to add the individual weight for that respective package. Don’t worry if you add the incorrect weight on your first package, FedEx will scan and weigh all packages and only bill according to its real weight.
  3. Declared Value is the total cost of the product shipping on this tracking number. Please review our full explanation of Declared Value here as you may incur additional charges.
  4. Choose your “Ship From” address.
    Note: FedEx requires LibDib to record the account number of the fulfiller in order to verify the alcohol shipper’s permit associated with the shipper. All billing for LibShip is sent to Makers by LibDib after the end of each month.
  5. Add a new ship from address if it is not listed in your current dropdown. FedEx requires that you add the FedEx account number for the shipping location. This is so that they can verify that this location is approved to ship alcohol. The account number is only used for verification purposes. All billing still goes through LibDib. 
    1. Change your “Ship From” address if needed.
  6. Create your Shipping Label(s).
  7. If your order has more than one box/package shipping, add additional shipping labels for each package you are shipping. 
  8. Assign your products to specific tracking numbers to help quickly identify products in the case of loss or damage or other inquiries from Buyers. If you are consolidating shipments, please also specify that here in “Case in shipment” by choosing how many packages are shipping together.
  9. Download and include your other documents, Buyer Invoice & Warehouse In-Tag.
