Where are all my settings stored and how do I transfer them to another computer?

In ReadyShipper X, while all your orders are stored in the cloud, your Settings are still stored locally on the computer that ReadyShipper X is installed on. If you set-up additional users in your ReadyCloud account and would like to install ReadyShipper X on additional computers, it is a fairly simple process to copy your settings over to another computer. Below you will find detailed information on where all of your ReadyShipper X settings are stored and instructions on how to copy them between computers.


The following information is stored in ReadyCloud and  synced to all Team Members in your ReadyCloud Team:
  • Orders synced from your stores connected to ReadyCloud
  • Contacts synced from your stores connected to ReadyCloud
  • Custom Packaging Types created in ReadyShipper X
  • Products imported into ReadyShipper X

The following information is stored in ReadyCloud but is unique for each Team Member in your ReadyCloud Team:

  • Order Views created in ReadyCloud

Since all of this information is stored in ReadyCloud it will be automatically synced into any computer you install ReadyShipper X on.


The following information is stored locally on your computer:

  • All of the following ReadyShipper X settings:
    • General
    • Inbox
    • Shipper Accounts
    • Ship From
    • Labels & Forms
    • Profiles
    • Ship Type Converter rules and Automation rules
    • Printer Settings
    • Import/Export Maps

Since all of this information is stored locally on your computer, you will need to take a few additional steps to copy these settings into for ReadyShipper X on a different computer.

To copy the ReadyShipper X settings that are stored locally on your computer to another computer, you will need to:

  1. Shutdown ReadyShipper X on the current computer. Make sure you have already installed ReadyShipper X on the other computer.
  2. On the current computer you are copying the settings from, open a File Explorer and navigate to /Documents/ReadyShipper.
  3. Select the settings7.json file from the folder in Step 2 and email it to yourself or copy it to a USB jump drive.
  4. Download the settings7.json file from Step 3 to the other computer and copy it to /Documents/ReadyShipper, replacing the existing file if prompted.
  5. Start ReadyShipper X on the other computer and you should now see all your settings.
