  3. UCC-128 shipping label format

    Currently there is no option within ShipStation to chose which shipping label format you want to use for printing. Please add an option to chose the UCC-128 label format.

  4. Customer Lifetime Order Count On Packing slip

    Having a the ability to add the customer's lifetime order count on a packing slip would be a great way for us. We could use that information to include sample products, gifts, coupon codes, or other special items. For example, if total order count is 10, we could add a special sample product or a thank you note.

  5. Scan UPC (not barcode) to bring up order

    We haven't seen the ability to scan the UPC (not barcode) to bring up an order. There is a mention about scanning the SKU but not the UPC.

  6. Product Barcodes on Picking Sheets and Ability to print Barcodes for Products

    We have barcodes assigned to our items that do come into shipstation with out integration. But they aren't being utilized in shipstation. It would be great to have the ability to print those barcode UPC/GTIN's onto picking sheets, packing slips.

    It would be even more beneficial to be able to set orders to print barcodes to a thermal printer so we can put it on packages. This goes hand in hand with Amazon's barcode needs for Fullfillment, internal manufacturing.

    As an example, we're a on demand product producer. We make the product the day after it's ordered. So being able…

  7. Automatic printing of Packing Slips for new orders

    Because this original request I made for this was closed when an unrelated feature was introduced, I'm creating a new one.

    I would very much like to be able to have the automation in ShipStation be able to print. This would allow me to have it automatically print all new orders that have downloaded, so that warehouse personnel know an order has come in when the printer starts spitting out packing slips. This is something we're used to having in a different product we switched from to ShipStation and it's the main thing we miss. With printing being done through…

    Hi @everyone,

    So, just to help us better understand, would this idea work best for you if it automatically printed whenever an order came in? So, say, an order comes in on Sunday at 4:00 a.m., it should print then. Or would it be better if whenever you log in to ShipStation and have it active that you would prefer to have the packing slips printed out then?

  8. international return labels

    The ability for Shipstaion to process international return labels. I know that you can not create an international return label in ShipStation because the ship from location has to be in the same country as your ShipStation account. We have to use a different service specifically for international return labels, making it extremely inconvenient and adds an unneeded expense on our part having to use two different services.

    Hi everyone! Thanks for your comments here on international return labels. Can you tell us more about how you handle international returns? For example, if they follow the same return policy as your domestic returns or if there are more restrictions since international shipping requires additional documentation?

  9. A4 paper size support for UK users

    Running into problems with shipping label position with integrated label printing. No way of fixing this without A4 paper size support.
    Some great work being done integrating UK shippers but we need other UK specific support..

  10. Better Packing Slip Customization

    We'd like more control over packing slips.

    Wouldn't it be nice to include additional information, like a serial or lot #?

    What about conditional fields that only show up when certain criteria are met? CSS and automation rule hackery can do some of this but it's so limited.

    What about including additional variables like Customs Description and Declared Value for customs officials?

  11. Change Friday shipments shipping cutoff time from Saturday to Monday

    My company ships M-F and our cut-off time is 3:30 pm so that we can get our packages over to the PO before closing time. However, we continue to package orders and print labels. We are using the feature in ShipStation to automatically change the date to the next day. This works out great everyday except for Friday. The after 3:30 pm Friday packages get a Saturday date assigned to them, but we don't work on Saturday. Is there anyway we could have our Friday after 3:30 pm packages be assigned a Monday date instead of Saturday?

  13. Disable archive doc when print DHL label

    I am using DHL and whenever I print a label, an archive document will be printed out automatically. I want a settings that can disable DHL archive doc as it is a wast of label. Since we are using Shipstation, it uses twice the amount of label and half of them now turn into garbage. Please let me disable archive doc print out in Shipstation like in Shiptheory courier settings.

    Currently, DHL requires the “Archive Doc/Copy” be presented to the carrier upon drop-off/pick-up of packages.
    We’ve seen a lot of comments for this being a waste of labels, however it is a requirement by the carrier.
    Would the consensus here be that a better option would be to have this Archive Doc/Copy print in a seperate method?
    For example: Labels are printed on 4×6, and the Archive Doc could theoretically be printed on an 8.5×11?
    Thanks to all of you for your comments and feedback!

  14. Better branding on shipping labels

    Like many businesses, our primary logo is essentially our company name, so it's wide and vertically short (approx 4 to 1 aspect ratio). It doesn't work well in square or round areas because it has to shrink so small to fit the width, plus that then creates a lot of blank space above and below.

    We enabled branding on our ShipStation labels and the logo was very small and off to the right side, and the logo basically being our name, also seemed to look too repetitious with our name in text in the return address. A panel of our…

  15. Scanning based Label Printing workflow

    Scan barcode to print shipping label

    This is a production line workflow.

    We create our shipments via your API ahead of time. So on a given Monday we might have 1,000 shipments already set up that are shipping throughout the week.

    This is what we want to do:
    - Create a barcode associated with each shipping label
    - We print barcodes and place on each box on our production line
    - Person scans barcode which automatically finds its matching shipping label and automatically prints the shipping label

    It's critical that no clicking or keyboard shortcuts would be required. We need…

    Scan to Print for v3 will accomplish 95% of this request.
    The shipment ID can be added as a barcode to the Packing Slip, which will pull up the Shipment in Scan to Print mode.
    There is another barcode that automatically Prints the label and you’re done. Scan to Print is available in the current version, but an improved experience is coming soon to v3

  16. Option to assign which tray to use while printing through Shipstation.

    We print both labels and receipts on the same printer.

    Tray1 holds our regular printing paper and the MP tray holds our labels.
    The default tray system wide is Tray1.

    Can we have an option where we designate which tray is to be used while printing through Shipstation so we do not have to keep switching labels and regular paper in tray1 ?

    Thank you.

  17. Shipping Label Format Printing

    We print either 4" x 6" or 4″ × 6″ (w/ Packing Slip) labels interchangeably depending on the type or size of order. We'd like the ability to switch between the two selections on the fly without having to navigate away from advanced or complicated custom searches.

  20. Pick list to get product location from inventory location, not the "Warehouse Location" field

    Just as the title suggests, it would be great to be able to have the pick list get the products location based on the location in inventory, not by the warehouse location field. That field has to be manually updated. A products inventory location is constantly changing, or same products in split locations, manually updating that field just to generate a pick list is very cumbersome.

    It would also be great if it gets the location that has the least amount of inventory first.
