  1. Prevent creating label if insure amount is $0 when the insurance is selected

    One of our employees overlooked the insured amount and printed the label thinking that it's already insured. The dollar amount is $0 -- the system should prevent them from creating the label when the amount is set to $0 only when the insurance option is selected.

  2. 4 x 4 Labels

    Hi,

    We currently use DPD as we were doing international shipping and are happy with their rates. Their printer only prints 4 x 4 labels which the barcode scanner is setup to read throughout the parcel's journey.

    I've just been in touch with your help desk and they said you only support 4x6 and 8x11, is there any way you can get 4x4 as one of the settings?

    Many thanks

  3. Sort By Name On New Order/Return Search

    When you create a new order / return and search for a product, the default sort is alphabetical by SKU number. This makes it difficult to search for products as Product Name is more important. Is there anyway to introduce the ability to search by Product Name? Or, remove SKU from the New Order / Return list?

    Thank you!

  4. Amazon End of Day Forms on Shipstation

    Amazon just recently came out with the ability to generate end of day forms for USPS packages that are shipped through their buy shipping method.
    For us, this includes all of our prime orders. As of now, our USPS pickup has to scan each prime order individually, which can take a lot of time.
    We are thinking it would be great for shipstation to find a way to implement this new feature into their system to simplify our process in getting these orders scanned correctly.

    Let me know what you think of this idea!

  5. Sort Shipping Label Printing by Last Name

    Make it possible to have shipping labels print in order of LAST NAME alphabetical A-Z? The only option available orders them by the first letter of the first name which is less ideal when organizing orders as first names tend to repeat more.

    Would love to have A-Z last name followed by any blank last name/single named customers.

  6. Currency on Commercial invoices

    Currently ShipStaion does not support or allow shippers any control over the currency on a commercial invoice.
    The currency is locked in based on your billing address.
    I would guess that most US sellers couldn't care less since they are always selling in US funds.
    I would also guess that many Canadian shippers are unaware and would be surprised that the currency is not based on the store currency. Furthermore it is incomprehensible that such a complex and system like ShipStation does not allow further control (default overall, per store and again on each order) much like everything else.
    Since…

  7. default phone number

    When there is no customer phone number provided, default to the store's phone number. Right now, when there is no phone number for a customer, the default for FedEx labels is 999-999-9999. This is not helpful should the Carrier need to contact us regarding the delivery of the order and we do not have a customer phone number to provide.

  8. Support for custom messages on a FedEx 4 x 9 shipping label.

    We ship frozen product and would like FedEx to leave the package at the first attempt. I would like to include this message in unused area in the 4x9 label.

  9. Allow customers to view and edit the CSS for the Packing Slip HTML

    You have some pre-set CSS rules that are used by the Packing Slip HTML template.

    Why not allow customers to view and edit these?

    That would allow them more ability to customise and structure HTML/CSS properly.

    Inserting inline CSS on each element is time-consuming.

    Inserting a <style> section at the top of the editor containing some custom classes seems to work, but is a bit of a hack.

  10. OnTrac shipping option for amazon prime orders

    Amazon recently added OnTrac for Amazon Prime and Seller fulfilled Prime orders. Shipstaion currently has option for UPS, FEDEX and USPS for Amazon Prime shipping options but does NOT have OnTrac! Please add OnTrac as a shipping option!!!

  11. Commercial Invoice currency default by store

    If I had it my way I would ask for the commercial invoice currency to be defaulted by store and manually switchable in the customs information section for each order. This way the correct details (including currency) are submitted to this shipper before the creation of any customs documents. And the shipper should have full control with the ability to default the currency based on the specific store or marketplace.

  14. currency

    We need a way to print out the orders in the PAID CURRENCY. Currently if I have aq $50 order come in, it shows as £50 on the "Packing Slip". While I appreciate currency stuff is trickier on the front end (ie the sales reports), there is no reason you couldn't simply import the currency from the 3rd part system (Esy, WooCommerce, Ebay), and store it in the record. Then when printing out the page it would be a piece of cake to include that record

    Speaking as programmer myself, I know this is very easily possible, so please implement…

  15. Label size options for letter printing

    If you cannot print lables and packing slips to two printers inline, then can you give the option to use different labels instead of only 2 per page?

  16. Allow for NetStamps Integration

    For small packages where the standard 4x6 label won't fit, it'd be great to see a NetStamps solution offered here so people can still print postage without the label and affix to small packages.

  17. Dimension requirements for specific carriers

    As FedEx requires dimensions for accurate shipping charges, I believe ShipStation users would value from the ability to set requirements for shipping labels, such as dimensions, that would not allow for label creation without certain fields being met. They seem to already have that for the shipment weight, which makes sense.
    Adding that functionality for dimensions would make it so shippers are not charged extra on their shipments from carriers like FedEx due to dimensions not being entered.

    Let me know what you all think!

  18. Packing Slip Printed Check-Mark

    We need to be able to quickly look at a Check Mark, that indicates that a packing slip has already been printed.

    When it comes to printing off Packing Slips, it gets to be a hassle to try and remember which packing slip you've already printed. Especially when you have multiple orders OR orders coming in at various times of the day.

  19. label format switching

    We should be able to switch between 4x6 and 8x11 with or without packing slip. It is such an important thing.

  20. printing hotkeys

    Currently, when you try to print the full hotkey list under "Support resources" and then "Hotkeys", it provides all hotkeys, including the ones I created, which are listed as "Custom Shipping Presets".

    When I go to Print PDF, the "Custom Shipping Presets" are not included in the PDF. I would like to recommend that be included in the PDF or there is a way to have a one pager of all the Hotkeys created.
