Trading names represent the information about your company or account that is visible to your customers/recipients of your mail in the following ways:
- an identifying name for your store
- an address where your business (or part of your business) operates from
- a return address, so customers can return damaged or unwanted goods
- customer service contact information (this is optional)
- additional information for customs documents
- any details shown in tracking/delivery notifications (if applicable)
Click & Drop requires you to set one or more trading names. This can be the brand under which you operate, or just your own name and address.
You are free to create as many trading names as you like. Every integration you create within Click & Drop must have one of your trading names associated with it.
To begin, click the 'Settings' link from any page within Click & Drop, and then click the 'Trading names' tile.
Your trading name(s) will be displayed here. By default, these will be the address details you added when you first created your account.
To add a new trading name, click the blue 'Add a new trading name' button.
To edit an existing trading name, click the row, and it will expand to show more details:
