  1. Co-packing items for shipments (multi)

    In a nutshell, we have 5 custom boxes made to co-pack our multi piece shipments. So, if there are approximately 40 items that are co-packed, is there a way to set up rules that will put A+A, A+B, A+C, and so on into Box 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5? Simply, how to put a cube value to each box, and have the system tell us that a specific order of 6 pieces will be 3 of Box 1, for example.

  2. Report that shows orders ship in ShipStation, Mark as Ship, and update by Channel from awaiting shipment to Shipped

    Currently you cannot get 3 of them in one screen for a specify shipped date.
    You can get regular shipped order and Mark as Ship order under Orders menu> Shipped section then choose a range of date then export order(ltem lines )
    Once exported there is a field for shipped orders only missing those orders updated by Channel

    If shipped date was available to filter and result include those updated by channel update would be perfect.

  3. Create locations by csv

    Create locations by csv will be helpful when u have more than 3000 locations in your warehouse I think that will improve the process a lot

  5. Track Value of Inventory

    I'd like to see a way to value my entire inventory for reporting purposes. Just a simple report that can take the input value of every item times the number of items and report how much your total inventory is worth.

  6. API - Product Update - Bulk Method

    Hi Guys,

    Would be cool if we will have a bulk method to update products via the API.
    We have around 500,000 SKUs to update, but are forced to send a single Product object every call.

    Not only that is a really slow process, we also overload the limits which effect order updates and tracking imports.

    The bulk method for Orders works like a charm, would love to see Products taking an array as well.

  7. Deduct Inventory for imported FBA orders.

    I sell via Amazon FBA, eBay, and my own website. I have all the orders piped into ShipStation so I can see all the data in one place. I'd like to be able to track my entire inventory though SS but the FBA imported orders don't deduct from the inventory numbers, even when I use channel specific SKUs, Store Aliases, and an FBA specific warehouse to deduct from.

    After talking with customer support, I'm told this is because FBA orders are imported as already shipped. Whereas if they came in as "Awaiting Shipment" I could get them to deduct from…

  8. View Published as well as Negotiated Rates at the same time on the Rate Calculator

    It would be extremely beneficial to be able to view both the published and negotiated rates at the same time when quoting a shipment. When giving a shipping quote to a customer who pays published rate, it is not efficient to have to turn off negotiated rates to get that number.

  9. Add Internal Product ID Column Option When Viewing Products

    This change is simple. I shouldn't have to write code to get the list of product IDs for the products I add. It should be available on the standard product dashboard. So, when I view the list of products, you have a Columns feature already there. I can turn on/off columns I want to see. All I'm asking for is that you add one called Product ID or Internal Product ID or Developer Product ID (whatever you want to call it) so that I can view that and change my source code's config file with the new product.

    I've already…

  11. Please Create a Way to Click on the Failed Allocation Message in Order to See Details

    Please Please Please read this:

    I've been struggling with quikship for months and the only way to get it to work correctly without orders getting stuck in processing limbo is to allocate my orders. I allocate them all at once by clicking to allocate all orders that are awaiting shipment. This has been working well, but now I've hit another snag. I recently clicked to allocate and had an order fail. I figured that I'd be able to click on the failed order notification to see the details, but that was not an option. The only way to go about…

    Hi @Julie Knerr Piano Safari, thanks for taking the time to share this! I see Joe’s helped you out some already. I’d also like to add there is an “Allocation Status” filter right above your list of orders. It’s located with the other filters below the “New Order” button. You’ll be able to find the unallocated orders that way, too.

    We’re working on improving inventory, so we’ll let you know when we have updates for you, or you can follow up with your open ticket .

  12. Add inventory tracking for packaging materials

    We keep track of our product inventory elsewhere, but use ShipStation to ship our products and therefore would like ShipStation to keep inventory of the boxes we use to ship products. We use the preset packages and think it's only natural to know how many we have used and how many we have left so we dont over-order boxes or know which box sizes we use more so we can place orders for them!

  13. choosing the ship date

    have a different spot where you enter the ship date or prompt before processing. Many times I forget to choose a different date it we have to void a batch which can be a big pain!!!

  14. Products > Stand Alone Product Detail > Shipping > Check Box (Combine Packages)

    We mainly sell and ship boxes, when customer order more than one unit of same products or other products, shipstation combine weight of all products in one package, we like a setting in product where we can choose to not combine, so we can see multiple packages

    Products > Stand Alone Product Detail > Shipping > Combine Packages (Check Box, by default checked)

  15. Bulk Import Carrier Information on Product Import csv

    Currently you can import the weight and dimensions of an item but not its carrier. The only way to change a product's carrier is by searching for the individual product in the product database and changing it's carrier one-by-one for every product. Specifying a carrier for all your products will take a lot of time.
    Using a csv product import for the carrier would save a lot of time which is valuable to us all.

  16. Sales Reports

    For businesses looking to streamline their workflows and test viability of certain products in their marketplace, a report including sales by SKU along with the corresponding cost of shipment would be highly valuable. This way we can segment by SKU and see what the average shipping costs are by product. There is no one report that has all of this data now.

  17. Inventory quantity used as criteria for automation

    If a seller has multiple warehouse locations, add functionality to allow automation rules based on out of stock levels. If I have no stock in CA then the item needs to be fulfilled by NC location.

    Thanks for your feedback!
    Would you mind elaborating on what lot numbers do for your business and items?
    Additional info on what you’re currently doing to get around the lack of this feature in ShipStation is also helpful.

  19. WooCommerce gift note import

    WooCommerce has a "This is a gift" feature visible during checkout, a lot like Amazon. Amazon orders import gift notes automatically, but WooCommerce gift notes are not imported, at least not to the "gift note" field. It would be great if it were possible to import data straight into the gift note field from WooCommerce.

  20. Notification Email for low stock

    Currently the only way to get notifications for any low stock or no stock items is through Shipstation.

    I would be nice to be able to set up an automation rule to send an email notifying users that something is low stock when it hits the threshold.
