  1. Stored product price

    Is there some way to make it where when you add your product to your packing ship it added the prices of those products automatically?

  2. Re-printing Batch Summary page

    Need a way to re-print the batch summary page.

    Let's say if we needed to go back and re-print the batch from shipments tab. It'll only print the shipping labels without the batch summary page.

    Need a way to re-print that batch summary page or just include it when we're re-printing the batch

  3. Increase thumbnail resolution or allow 'https' for image links

    Good day.

    We are producing personalized products and to help match the produced item to the label/slip, we are printing the Image URL (thumbnail) on the packing slip.

    Most of the items have the same design and the only differentiator is the personalized name. However, due to the low image resolution, the names are barely readable.

    With this, is there a way to increase the thumbnail resolution?

    Alternatively, it is possible to allow 'https' in the image link? We tried loading the full-size image link (using plain http) under Internal Notes (supposed to be under custom fields but image URL…

  4. Change what key the Scan to View uses in the order details to find an order

    We have a proprietary system for fulfillment with our own pick ticket system which includes its own barcode. This works great for all orders that we control the format on. We simply import our orders with the respective barcode value as the orderId and everything works. This does not work for integration setups like Amazon and Ebay because ShipStation controls that import and subsequently the value in the orderId field. Once our warehouse goes to pick the orders there is no relative order that would match up with our data because we didn't initially import the order ourselves. We're going…

  5. Create return labels for multi-package shipments - to send with outgoing

    Right now you can only generate a return label to send with the original shipment if the shipment contains only 1 box/package. The number of return labels generated should be equal to the number of packages originally sent.

  6. Customisation of order summary

    I'd love to be able to customise the Order Summary to pull in any field that is available in the interactive Orders tab e.g. customer email, requested shipping service, gift etc.

    Personally I'd like to see the email address added to the printable Order Summary underneath the customer's address, but i know other fields will also be highly useful to other companies.

  7. Make shipment forms available for download via API

    The ShipStation API currently does not provide a publicly documented way to download shipment forms.
    We have several use cases for this feature: For one it would allow us to batch-print multiple PDFs at once without clicking "download"+"print" on each one of them. Furthermore it would allow for automated patching of the PDFs to fix issues such as this one http://feedback.shipstation.com/forums/330429-product-feedback-fresh-ideas/suggestions/42047626-include-billing-address-on-shipment-forms

  8. Include billing address on shipment forms

    Currently the commercial invoices (shipment forms) for international FedEx and DHL shipments don't include the billing address (aka "sold to"/"importer"), even if it's different from shipping address.
    It would be good to have this included as creates it problems with some shipments.

    Support Chat told me that the forms are actually autogenerated by the carrier, so if this turns out to be a limitation of the carrier's API, ShipStation could do automatic patching of the PDF.

  9. The correct sized label should automatically be generated so users don’t have to manipulate the image size.

    It should be seamless and it shouldn't waste my time. GoShippo already provides the correct sized label with every download.

  10. Delivery (Transit) Time on Packing Slip

    In the packing slip customization tool, it would be very helpful if there was a Field Replacement for "delivery time" or "transit time" based on the carrier, the selected shipping service, the shipping location, and the destination location of each order. Wouldn't it be possible to get this information from each carrier's API?

    Our company sells frozen meats and we need to see the estimated transit time as we pick and pack so that we know how much dry ice to include in each shipment to keep it frozen during transit.

  12. How can I attach order-specific documents for the fulfillment locations to use. I need fulfillment locations to attach POs and Invoices

    How can I attach order-specific documents for the fulfillment locations to use. I need fulfillment locations to attach POs and Invoices to their shipments. Today I have to send an email for every order that requires an Invoice or PO attached. Make Shipstation only useful for Ecomm and not Retail.

  13. Add Buyers Email and Phone number to Packing Slips

    We need to add the buyers email address and phone number to the packing slips - this seems like it should be easy considering the buyers email address is in the Buyer/Recipient Sold to info area of the order. We ship out most orders as gifts, so the Recipient email or phone number doesn't do us any good when we really need to contact the buyer not the recipient.

  14. Print tracking # in message area on shipping label

    We are used to having a peel off receipt on the shipping label that has the tracking #. This can be affixed to a hardcopy document for reference. Would like to be able to print the tracking # in the message area of the shipping label.

  15. Create Barcode for Shipping Label that can be taken to UPS store and they print label

    Sometimes Salesperson or Technicians need to ship a package. They can't print a label.

    Would like to create a barcode (like what is available on UPS.com) to walk-in to the UPS store, show the barcode on their phone, and then the UPS store can print the label from the barcode.

  18. A need for printing alias sku's on shipping labels instead of sku's attached to marketplace orders.

    It would be extremely helpful if we could print the alias sku's created in Shipstation on shipping labels, packing slips and pick lists instead of printing the sku's from specific marketplace orders. Currently, only the order specific marketplace sku can be printed on the shipping label.

    As our business has grown and evolved, we understand our own needs better. We now have the need to change our internal sku format. We don't want to change these products, just the sku. However, changing these sku's at the marketplace level, especially Amazon is extremely difficult and can be detrimental to product rank.…
