  1. Adding a barcode to the SS label

    We're using ShipStation to create labels for USPS and Fedex and we'd like to include a barcode on the USPS label to help us in the internal relay process.

  3. Intelligent Sorting - Packing Slip

    We're currently sorting our packing slips by SKU number, but the sorting is machine rather than natural. Can you please use natural sorting (i.e. 1, 2, 10, 20, 100, 200) rather than the clumsy machine sorting (1, 10, 100, 2, 20, 200) that makes our staff walk more? Our warehouse is currently organized by SKU, but as we move to a warehouse numbering system, we expect to encounter the same issue unless we pad locations with J01, J11 instead of J1, J11.

  4. Reference/PO Number on FedEx Labels - Pull Order # from Shopify

    On FedEx labels there is a place for a PO and Reference number. When we manually fulfill orders in FedEx we put the Shopify order number as the reference number. This way when FedEx calls about clearance issues, we can easily find the order by Ref. # (printed on the label also).

    Hi,
    Please allow us to print custom messages on First class mail letter, which helps us to instruct the mail clerk that "no machinable surcharges are paid".

  6. Have Shipped Orders' Section Print Dropdown include "labels"

    This is the most intuitive place where printing a label would be. Could this be added as another place to access printing off the shipping label (in the case where it was lost of didn't process through printer) ...

  7. Rate Calculator on V3 Scan and Verify Label Creator

    The biggest game changer in V3 is the Scan and Verify feature. This alone is helping us to make the decision to stay with SS after making the decision to leave because this feature is so crucial to eliminating misshiped orders.

    Just one down side, the ability to check rates in real time is no longer available during label creation in the Scan and Verify screen and that feature alone is priceless.

    I have attached two images displaying how V2 has the option during label creation and how V3 does not have that option in the same checkout process.

    Until…

  8. Magento Custom attribute to Harmonised code

    Posting stuff overseas from the UK means we have to make a customs declaration using commodity codes. We have the info already in our shop as a Magento custom attribute, could it be mapped to what you call a harmonised code?

  9. Need to be able to reprint labels from the shipstation mobile app by scanning the barcodes from the packing slips!

    Currently, you can reprint packing slips and pick lists but you cannot reprint labels. You have to go and type the order numbers in the shipment page to reprint labels.

    Please add this functionality soon!

  10. Automatically printing the Commercial Invoice/COO if the Shipping Label doesn't have ETD listed.

    If ETD is not listed on the Shipping Label we must manually include the other documents (which are the Certificate of Origin and the Commercial Invoice). Another way to see if this the other documents are required is by going into Shipments, typing in the order #, and then seeing if there is a document icon next to the order #.

    At this time, there is no feature in ShipStation that will allow the Commercial Invoice/Certificate of Origin to print with the Shipping Labels if required - we have to print this manually and separately.

    It would eliminate SO much…

  11. Add customer related data in packing slip

    We would like to add customer related data in the packing slip.
    The goal is to pull from our website customer related information (like the amount of points they have on the reward program we are running) and display that along with relevant data for that particular customer.
    Because shipstation lacks this ability we were trying to add a dynamically created image by putting a url in the img tag that would return an image with the needed content.
    Something like:
    <img src="https://domain.com/create-image.php?order=123456&quot; />

  12. Printing Picklist sorting by Oldest order to Newest

    I do customized ironwork on several different selling channels...eBay, Etsy, and Amazon. It is critical to have the "notes" field on each order. I have been using the Order Summary sheet without all the customer details option. I don't need all that to clutter up the sheet...the reason I use this is because it is the only sheet that gives me the option to sort the orders from oldest to newest. BUT I cant get the notes field like the Picklist gives...so I end up handwriting it on the sheet every time. Very time consuming and have made a few…

    Is there a way to get the packing slip to print with the label on two separate 8.5 x 11 paper? I see the option for them to both be on one page but I want two separate pages.

    Attached is an example. I need to email these to dropshippers and they complain about cutting paper in half and having to tape them to packages.. Plus I dont want two steps to save and email two separate pieces of paper.

    Thanks!

  15. ancillary USPS

    In addition to the existing "Other Shipping Options" available per order, it would be nice to be able to apply the USPS Ancillary Service texts (e.g., "Address Service Requested") to USPS orders.

    Our mail carrier suggested us to us to avoid expensive return shipping to us when a package is sent to an undeliverable (even though valid) address.

    More info about these Ancillary Services can be found at https://pe.usps.com/BusinessMail101?ViewName=SpecialAddressingServices.

  16. Automatically assigning a number or full stop to contact telephone for orders without numbers

    If orders without a contact telephone you could create a rule to apply 0 or fullstop as some carriers require a number to create a label but if consumer hasn't added a number you manually must put fullstop or 0 every time to generate a label which dramatically slows down the label process.

  17. download label

    It would be a nice feature if you could have a download label button so that on the rare case a user needs to download a label (when they normally go direct to the printer) you could just click a button to download the label without having to change settings each time.

  18. batch number manifest

    In the last 48-72 hours there has been a change in the Shipment Manifest where we no longer are given the batch number associated with the Manifest. This was helpful in charting quality assurance for shipments.

  19. Customizing label per shipment without adding new Ship From Location

    I was trying to find a way to change the "Ship From" Name without adding a new ship from location and I have been made aware that this is currently not an option. I would like to be able to have each Department and Salesperson in my business be able to edit the one existing Ship From Location to Reflect their name without having to add all of them separately. That would entail having 40 plus Ship From locations. If I could have the one business name and address saved with a way to edit the name attached to the…

  20. add package type to label

    Adding what package type was selected for the label on the actual shipping label is needed. We batch print our labels based on the weight and having the package type is necessary since it will let the warehouse know what packaging to use. I checked for now it is not available to add to the label
