  1. etsy ship by date

    Etsy Ship By date should import into ShipStation.

    Many Etsy users sell home made products that need specific ship by dates as they need to be hand made after the order is placed.

    This Ship By date can change dependent on the amount of products a user orders and is ever changing. With it not being static, It would be greatly beneficial to import the Ship By from your Etsy connection.

  3. Add Wholesale Pricing for X-Cart-5

    X-Cart 5 like X-Cart 4 allows for wholesale or tiered pricing. When you integrated with X-Cart 5 you did not include this feature which you had in X-Cart 4. It would be great if you added it so we can use it in X-Cart 5.

  4. Automatically retry failed market place updates

    sometimes, marketplace notifications (and subsequent tracking emails to customers) fail (red cart icon) due to server unavailability for whatever reason.

    Can we get an option to try those every few hours for a set number of days like every 4 or 6 hours for 2 days?

    Our marketplace gets out of whack when there is a temporary glitch on a day we are shipping and we don't notice until several days after the customer received the package and the only way to update the marketplace is to retry the failed steps which then gives a shipping email long after the…

  5. Netparcel.com shipping integration to save on parcel shipments

    NetParcel shipping integration with ShipStation to save everyone on shipping costs with all the couriers instead of having to negotiate rates directly with couriers. This has changed the game for our business for shipping parcels, especially to the USA and I still use it, it is a pain having it not integrated. I hope others get on board with this and vote!

  6. ChitChats + ShipStation

    Please add ChitChats to the list of carries in the "mark as shipped" options to have a direct link to their tracking page in ShipStation confirmation emails.

    https://chitchats.com/tracking/*tracking number

    A full integration would be wonderful in the future, but this would be a good start for Canadian stores using their fulfillment service.

    Thank you!

  7. Use Zapier to cancel an order as long it's not shipped yet

    Hello,

    I'm using the Zapier ShipStation integration. When an order is made on sendowl (our payment gateway) a new order is created in shipstation.

    That works great!

    Sometimes we have to cancel an order in sendowl that we would like to cancel in shipstation as well as long it's not shipped yet.

    Can you add the action "Cancels an order" in the Zapier ShipStation integration?

    That would help a lot.

    Thanks so much!

  9. Automation Rule Option for Assigning Custom Field 1, 2, 3

    Currently there is not an option to create an automation rule to pass imported data to the Custom Fields

    For a dropship business each client has specific needs as far and what data to send in the Custom Fields. Having an automation rule that would allow us to pass imported data (e.g. internal note, buyer note, order#, etc to the Custom Fields) would make this possible. Not to mention alleviate the hours of copy & pasting we have to do for thousands of orders....

    Isn't that the idea behind shipstation. get ship done faster.

  13. deliverr

    Deliverr is the Walmart's 2Day shipping program. In order to be competitive with Amazon they are now offering the same shipping times.

    Having this integrated with Shipstation would help make for a smooth transition to faster shipping option for Walmart.

  14. DPD Expresspak

    Can you add DPD Expresspak to the DPD services? Expresspak is for the international small parcels up to 3kg. We use Expresspak for all of our international orders but unfortunately Shipstation don't let us to use it. Therefore we have to use DPD classic which is £1-£2 more expensive per parcel. We lose about £20-£30 in a day and it cost about £500 in a month.

  15. Sustainable Initiatives: Carbon offset programs, carbon accounting and more

    Carbon accounting with the carbonfund.org! My company has used Shipstation for 6+ years. We use the UPS "carbon neutral" option for our UPS carrier shipping. We really want to add a similar option for USPS shipments - or ALL shipments, and track our estimated shipping carbon footprint in one place. We know USPS offers a "BlueEarth® USPS BlueEarth Carbon Accounting" for commercial mailing customers via the carbonfund.org, but we don't know how to sign up or integrate with Shipstation. As a Benefit Corporation, we'd LOVE for Shipstation to offer more sustainable initiatives to users in 2019 and beyond.

  16. FedEx IPD International Priority Direct

    Integrate ShipStation with FedEx IPD (International Priority Direct) service.

    From the FedEx site:

    Delivery bulk shipments from one origin location to multiple addresses in...select countries. Shipment clears customs as a single unit and then individual pieces are delivered to multiple addresses, bypassing warehouses and middlemen.

    Delivery Times
    Door-to-door within 2 to 4 business days*

    This means that we distribution and fulfillment companies can be competitive in the international market. Instead of paying customs-related charges for individual packages, it allows the shipper to send a collection of packages destined for multiple end destinations, to a single site in, for example, Europe...AND…

  17. Etsy gift wrap/gift message integration

    Etsy is getting ready to integrate gift wrapping and gift messages into their sales platform. I'm hoping there will be an alert for each order containing this information within ShipStation once it goes into effect. Gift messages are going to be made available to all orders at no charge, so every Etsy seller will have to deal with them whether they want to or not, and I am concerned I'll get a gift message request and not know about it.

    Ideally, I would also like to see a way to print ONLY gift message packing slips and not every packing…

  18. Paypal integration

    Currently SS does not work to notify PayPal of tracking info and ship status. I am told by SS that they are not integrated with the correct PayPal API to allow this to happen. This is a big disadvantage for PayPal users, causing us an extra step by having to manually update each individual order in PayPal with tracking information. The current integration between PayPal and SS is not complete. SS, please do what is needed to integrate fully with PayPal.

    UPS SurePost does not show in the rate calculator when trying to determine the cheapest method for Free Shipping.

    Can we get all UPS and FedEx US Postal Delivery shipping methods (i.e. UPS SurePost & Fedex SmartPost) to show in the calculator?
