  1. COMMERCIAL INVOICE

    Shipstation allows you to import separate SOLD TO information (different than SHIP TO information). This information is NOT passed on to the COMMERCIAL INVOICE in the SOLD TO/IMPORTER section.

    I spoke with FedEx Web Services and all ShipStation needs to do is use the tag "CustomsClearanceDetail/ImporterOfRecord" and the Commercial Invoice will be correct (see attachement pg 531).

    Currently ShipStation only allows the CONSIGNEE to be the SOLD TO/IMPORTER which is not always the case.

    Please add this tag to your software. I've seen other requests for this as well.

    Thank you.

  2. change text size on label

    Regarding this article: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/206639957-How-can-I-add-order-information-to-my-labels-

    Would be great if we can reduce the font size of the order notes that appear at the bottom of the label. It allows for very few characters since the font is so large.

  3. Itemized packing slip

    I would like an option on the packing slip to break units ordered onto separate lines versus having a count to the right of 2. For example, if a customer ordered 2 shirts it would appear
    shirt
    shirt
    vs
    shirt 2

  4. Order Summary by Ship Date

    Suggestion. When printing Order Summary doc, it would be helpful if the list were sortable by Ship By Date. this way when packing a group of orders, the packer can work from top to bottom of page, filling orders by priority.

  5. Set the default packing slip size to different sizes for different stores

    I would like the default packing slip to be an 8.5"x11" custom packing slip for 3 of my shops, and a 4"x6" custom packing slip for the other shop. I only seem to be able to set the default to one size or the other across my whole account. Going in and changing the default every time is quite time consuming and easily forgotten, which confuses other people when they log in and expect one kind of packing slip and get another!

  6. I would like to be able to change the return address on my Amazon Prime labels.

    When I currently create Amazon Prime shipping labels in ShipStation, the return address on the label shows as the Ship From location. This is bad for me because my products ship from individual employees who do not want their names and addresses on the labels. It would be nice if there was an automated way to have the return addresses show up as our company address instead of the ship from address. This is possible on other labels, but appears not to be on prime.

  7. I need BLUETOOTH function in shipstation.

    I need BLUETOOTH function in shipstation in case my internet went down and I can use my phone to print using shipstation mobile.

    Hi @Chien! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. When using ShipStation Mobile to print documents directly to your printer requires the use of ShipStation Connect and the internet. While we wait for other users to chime in, let us know if any of these solutions can help.

    As you pointed out, ShipStation Mobile doesn’t support printing via bluetooth. If you wanted to print via bluetooth, you can download your labels and other documents directly to your phone’s memory card and connect your phone to your bluetooth printer (which may require a third party application).

    Another way to print your documents is by downloading the documents to your phone, removing the memory card from your phone and manually upload the files to your computer to print to your printer.

  8. Consolidate scan forms

    There should be a way to consolidate scan forms into a single document. We have three separate brands that all ship from the same address. They have to be set up as separate "ship from" locations for branding purposes. But, there's no need to present so many different scan forms to the post office.

    Hi @Jennifer, thank you for taking the time to bring this up! To reduce the number of ship from locations and scan forms you have to generate, you can override the company name of your ship from using your store settings.

    As seen in the first picture here, the checkbox under “Company Name” needs to be checked off: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003856207

    And once you’ve done that, the store’s company name will always be used on the ship from address so you’ll be free to have one ship from location!

    Please let us know here in the Product Feedback forum if you have any questions or if this wasn’t what you were referring to.

  9. International C.O.D.'s

    We are currently experiencing a huge wave of international orders. A few customers have requested for COD. We are able to make the shipment work by going through Fedex.com and manually ship the order through them, but it is plenty more work for the shipping department to create a Commercial Invoice through their website.

  10. International bar code is undersized

    Looking at the USPS requirements (can be found here - https://ribbs.usps.gov/intcustomsforms/documents/tech_guides/GuidelinesforPrivatelyPrintedCustomsDeclarationForms.pdf) the bar code that is printed on International labels is under sized. This makes it difficult for some scanners to pick up the bar code depending on what printer you are using. I'm surprised that ShipStation is adhering to USPS requirements.

    Hey there!

    This is a known issue and our Developers are working on it.

    We will let you know once we have any updates on this.

    In the meantime, feel free to leave other feedback, votes, and comments for us!
    Thanks.

  11. For packing slip customization, is it possible to map Delivery Time (time in transit) onto the packing slip itself for printing?

    For packing slip customization, is it possible to map Delivery Time (time in transit) onto the packing slip itself for printing? For example, USPS Priority Mail has a 1-Day, 2-Day, and 3-Day ship. ShipStation could draw this information from the Stamps.com API or FedEx API to provide transit time to warehouse personnel who are viewing the 8.5" x 11" packing slip.

    Hey @John, thanks for bringing up delivery time on your packing slips! We would like to see interest from other users on this before moving forward. In the meantime, there may be other fields that could help like [Requested Shipping Service] or, if you would like to enter this data in yourself, you may want to look into [Custom Field 1].

  12. Need one or two customizable fields on shipping label when not creating an order

    Shipstation is great, but, it should not require an order to be generated in order to get customizable fields on the shipping label or to ship third party. We create our orders in another program not compatible with Shipstation but we love to ship our orders using Shipstation. Why should we have to create an order twice just to get extra fields on the shipping labels? UPS Worldship and other programs have that ability. We depend on being able to enter: Quantity, SKU(s) as well as Invoice or PO # on the label so our warehouse can pull/pack and verify…

  13. Place option for Product Variation on the shipping label-Such as color or size

    Right now We have limited option to place within 3 lines on the shipping label (Sku, title...)

    It would be of great help and better work flow to be able to see the product variation on the label as well.

    This way, if you have the sku there, then right under on the next line you can see what color or size the item is as well.

    I think this would be of great help to many of us.

    Thank you

  14. Unable To Print Multiple Package Order Labels Under New Updates

    We have many orders that require multiple packages to be sent for the same order. We used to be able to highlight the labels and print all labels for the order right from the order screen. Now we have to create the labels, then leave the order, go to the shipments screen, and find each label and select them then print the labels. It was a great function for B2B business that do volume, now it's gone and utterly inconvenient and opens up our processes to mistakes...

  16. flip the labels on mac

    For mac users there should be an auto detection so we can flip the labels or have an option set to click and it would print upside down instead. if you use provided labels by UPS to print it has the little text on the bottom that is preprinted. Also please change the printer software to ZPL for customers..has more managed support

  17. automated batches

    I run a subscription box company so once a month I ship out about 800+ packages in bulk. I manually have to create batches of 24 pieces and print the labels. Before the labels print I print a label that has the batch information: Batch Number, Product information, Date, and a place for the packer to sign off. It would be great if I could get ShipStation to automatically create these batches of 24 for me using specific criteria for the product such as SKU and its destination (domestic, international).

  18. I'd like to have a column header for 'Payment Date' on the "Orders::ShipStation" page

    I'd like to have a column header for 'Payment Date' on the "Orders::ShipStation" page. I want to know how many days have expired since each order was paid for because ebay uses this to score seller status (e.g. Top Seller). 'Order Date' is not that important to me. Thanks

  19. Adding attachant to

    It would be amazing to add an attachment to my orders. I work with a wide variety of distributors and inevitably need to manually enter sales data so that everything stays in shipstation. This increases my processing time, margin of error and general frustration. I would love to be able to attach their specific packing slip so there is no confusion in the sales process.

  20. Option for Letterhead/Logo Upload for Commercial Invoices

    FedEx is pushing all of their clients to include a letterhead or logo when printing Commercial Invoices. More and more countries are requiring this. If not included, packages are likely to get held up in customs incur fees.
