  1. Option to automate post dating for labels created on Saturday. Next day just does not help on Saturday

    We need an option to automate the post dating process. Anyone that sells on Amazon knows you are dinged for marking something as shipped and then the carrier does not scan it until a day or two later. This issue comes from creating a label on Saturday and the carrier does not scan it into their system until Monday. We know there is the option to automate and post date labels to the next day after a certain time, but this functionality really needs to include a day function as well for the situation already described.

  2. Export Batch as CSV

    Customers can export pick lists as a pdf in a batch, but then they can't export them as CSVs which severely limits our ability to sort them. If we had the ability to sort our batches it would save us a ton of time.

  3. 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…

  4. Landscape Packing Slips Needed

    We need the option to have landscape packing slips. We sell on Home Depot and need to be able to create landscape packing slips per their guidelines.

  5. FedEx Collect (Authorized Accounts Only) Option

    Both of my big clients use FEDEX Collect (Authorized Accounts Only) option. This lets them pay for the shipping without giving everyone their account number.

  6. 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

  7. add shipping method to pick sheet

    It would really help our shipping department if you could add the shipping method to the pick sheet.

    This is nice for our department so that they can just see on the pick sheet if it is will call or has special shipping details.

    Every time we have a will call order it does not scan and it has them believe there is a greater issue, but if it was simply added to the pick sheet they would know before they scanned.

    They are not the most technical people so when we put a rule to flag it on shipstation…

  8. Bulk Printing Order Summaries

    It would save us a lot of time (especially at holiday) if we could bulk print order summaries that would all print out on full 8.5X11 pages (not multiple orders crammed together on one page as it is now) so they can be included with shipments.

  9. ShipStation does not have the functionality for ORMD(hazardous material) shipping

    There is no option for ORMD under shipping options (FedEx ) and Special Handling/Hazardous Material under USPS. We ship Essential oils and this is a required field.

  10. Close label or batch window once printed to prevent same batch from being printed twice

    We have recently had some human errors with the same orders or batches getting printed twice. I think this can easily be avoided with a feature that closes the label or batch window when you press print.

  11. 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.

  12. Add stock level to packing slip or pick list

    It is great to have a option of inventory source, and display current quantity on orders windows.
    However, it will be much greater to have a option to add this(current stock level) on packing slip or pick list. This feature will save our warehouse guy tons of time.
    Highly recommend!!

  13. Make the RMA number auto fill to be the order number.

    Make it possible for the RMA number to be auto filled to be the order number instead of a randomly generated number when creating a return. This would make it easier for returns to be found in the order system when the are received.

  14. Pick list order items by warehouse location - Secondary filter alphanumerically

    We are having issues between SkuVault and ShipStation integration in regards to picklist locations. After chatting with a support rep, we are realizing that shipstation doesn't have a resolution to this currently.

    The resolution would be to add an option to the Order Items by Warehouse Location Alphanumerically. (secondary sort?)

    Shipstation currently has a sort by Warehouse location but when there are multiple locations, the location with less inventory is that displays first, which in our case is inaccurate. SkuVaults Policy is to pick based on alphanumeric. Shipstation and SkuVault need to have the ability to work on the same…

  15. Dynamic Return Address Modification at the Order Level

    Our customers require us to modify the return address on our shipping labels to reflect a company name and address specific to them. This occurs at both the customer and order level where 5 orders from the same customer need to reflect 5 different company names in the return address. It looks like we can accomplish this in an automated fashion via the api, with the create label call, but only as a standalone label call. This will work for some of our products but prevents us from processing shipments manually as they require association to an order and we…

  16. 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!

  18. Label Same Direction as Invoice/Packing Slip

    I would like to orient my Invoice/Packing Slip on my Burris Forms Integrated Label to be the same direction as the shipping label (see Sample-Integrated-Label.pdf). To have the Invoice/Packing Slip printed in a different direction as the label makes it very awkward to confirm all the information when checking orders. This should be a simple fix and a very convenient one for order pickers & checkers.
    Thanks!

  20. 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.
