  1. Sort or filter inventory based on Jet status

    Inventory items have a Jet section and in that section there are details about the status, such as "Available for purchase", "excluded", "Under Jet review", "Multipack inventory error", etc. This is very useful information to help ensure all of our inventory is on Jet, but there is no way to see this status except opening every product and looking under the Jet tab. There needs to be a way to view all products with a certain status, or at least a sortable column that shows the message. This would allow for better upkeep on inventory to ensure the most products…

  2. Automate SKUs to have tags

    We would like to automate orders with multiple items to be tagged.

    Thanks for that description @Amanda!

    I checked into your account and it looks like you’re currently going about this using Automation Rules which does not allow for multi-item order application.

    As an alternate workflow, you can export your products via CSV, add in the tags for which products you’d like, and re-import. (You can search NTP in the Products page search field to bring up only those products for a smaller export.)

    This will allow tags to be applied to these products even with multi-item orders.

    Please let me know if this helps!

  3. Syncing products with inventory

    There needs to be a way to sync "Products" with "Inventory". All of our item locations are in Inventory but not Products and there's no way to sync them. This means our packing slips don't show locations. We have many hundreds of items and now no way of displaying where they are stored. Can this be added?? This is enough to make us look for another shipping program!

    Hey there!

    Thank you for your feedback.

    While we look into this, I’d like to suggest an alternate workflow.

    Within the Inventory tab, you have the option to export your Inventory, locations included.

    All you would need to do is re-format this CSV export to match up with the Product Import format and import to the Products page.

    Please reach out to our support team if you need any assistance with this.
    Thanks!

  4. Suggest having a field in ShipStation UI and Back end to save cost of products.

    Right now there is a "defaultCost" field on the API that is not saving the data. I suggest having a field in ShipStation UI and Back end to save the cost of products. This is VERY useful for being able to pull the most accurate reports for COGS. We are working with a 3rd party for reporting from ship station, and the field is there for them to pull the data from, however nothing is being saved there so the field is not usable. Would be very useful to have this field turned on.

  5. ShipStation app in BigCommerce Product Sync!

    The "Products" tab of the Ship Station app in Big Commerce should have an additional button option that allows users to sync product changes made within BC to populate into SS. The button would be right next to: "Import | Export | Update" (the "Update" is my suggestion). This would trigger the same "product import" that occurs when a user initially sets up the SS app in BigCommerce. It would offer a warning to the user that all product data would be synched with the product data found in BC, updating all SKUs in ShipStation. I am surprised that this…

  6. Inventory Support for Virtual Bundles

    We have a few websites that sell products to wholesalers. For example we will sell a case of a single SKU. Each case has 12 units. It would be nice if SS could allow us to setup virtual bundles that deducted multiple units of a single SKU.

  7. Automated scheduled product import from current running eBay/Amazon listings via API

    Would love to see Shipstation do scheduled imports of products from current listings on eBay/Amazon automatically via the APIs.

    We list dozens of one-off products a day. Currently Shipstation only imports when something is sold, or via CSV. Creating products manually or via CSV is tedious and redundant. We would love to be able to enter warehouse storage locations for products shortly after listing, so pick lists actually work when we get orders.

    We are currently using Sixbit purely for storage locations and pick lists, as it does offer the capability via the API's. We will close our Sixbit account…

  8. Which warehouse stocks at a glance.....

    Question in Products; Inventory: Can we add a column that shows category? I don't see it in Column list.It would be wonderful if it was.
    The usefulness is vast considering it will breakdown which warehouse has the inventory from a sales point of view.

  9. Allow the API method /orders/markasshipped to reduce inventory

    Are you able to change the API call /orders/markasshipped to reduce inventory levels in Shipstation based on the items on the order? When an order is shipped, the item quantities on the order should be decremented since those items have been physically shipped from another system. The fact that this is not done may be a bug as this is a fairly common use case. You could even add a Boolean (true/false) parameter to the method call signalling if inventory should be deducted or not.

    Thanks for your great idea! We’ll keep this in mind but would like to see more interest from other users before we pursue this new feature. If you know any other users that are interested please send them here!

  10. Update/Remove tags from products

    Product Import Updating - Tags

    It is currently possible to ADD a tag to a product via CSV update, however, you cannot UPDATE or REMOVE tags from products via CSV update. The only way to remove a product tag currently is to do so manually, very inneffective when working with a large number of SKU's.

  11. Delete Products (Not Only Deactivate Products)

    I don't know if anybody else has this issue, but we have duplicates in our product list, which was incurred by wrongly associated them with one parent SKU while new orders coming in. So, would like to be able to delete products, not just deactivate them.

  13. Track stock by store

    It would be great if we can enable/disable stock tracking per store instead of per Shipstation account. We only have 1 store that we manage our products through SS. When we import the csv file, we have to enable track stock. Once import is done, we have to disable. Just would be nice to pick the feature per store.

  14. Tagging / Segmenting

    We had a large amount of orders that we needed to ship out in a 48 hour period. The customers only had 3 products to choose from and they could order up to 3 items of any combination of those three. We want to batch print each combination so that we can streamline fulfillment and are having trouble doing so with tags or automation rules. There doesnt seem to be a straightforward way to do it and SS support hasn't been able to supply a good strategy. For example, an order that contained two of product A and one of…

  15. Inventory Modification

    It would be nice to have the ability to modify the inventory stock levels through the API. It is nice having it in the front end, but if it cannot communicate with anything else, it is half-useful to us.

  17. Include Preset Group column for Product Export CSV File

    Applying preset groups (current and new) to products can only be performed inside the Shipstation interface. We feel it would be more time-saving if the export product CSV file contained a column attribute for Preset Group. This would do wonders for our product mapping at our organization. Yes, there is one for Category but why not one for Preset Group?

  18. product import

    Product Updating Import

    I notice when I need to import product updates I needed to import the whole file again with all the data. When you have a lot of products this is very time consuming. Because the import files need to be broke down into smaller files and imported one at a time to get the data imported.

    Suggestion would be to have it so you can import just the headers needed. E.g. if you needed to import a tag you could create a file of just SKU and Tag1 in the header. When this file is imported it…

  19. Product - Allow Export or Import of Products and Aliases

    Would be nice to have an import and export of products, with delete option as well.

    For instance if we have 20 Aliases that link to One SKU and basically all 20 are the same SKU, let us import SKU A, and Alias skus 1,2,3,4,5,6, etc to all link to that one instead of doing it manually from the Product cumbersome page.

    Also, all delete option in bulk for all Alias's and skus. Archive doesn't seem to work as long accounts (11 years) tend to re-use numbers and if one is archived it causes havoc.

    Delete and purge option is…

  20. Automation Rules - Import and Export

    So to end a lot of Automation creation, issues, dilemmas, dealing with cumbersome creation of and/or buttons, etc. Make an upload available, and download of all automation rules.

    CSV possibly to keep it consistent. Give a sample of 10 complete automations, or give us a macro enabled Excel format that prefills in options.

    For instance, we have over 80 automation rules, multiple accounts and items we work with, and for instance the Amazon Prime Shipping integration last year caused us to recreate them all, and to recreate 80 new ones since we had orders on Seller Fulfilled Prime, and normal…
