  1. usps pick up confirmations

    Sorry If I have posted this multiple times. USPS supplies a pick up confirmation number when you schedule a pick via USPS.Com or Stamps.com. This number is requested when you call the post office to inquire about pick ups. This is very useful. Currently Shipstation does not supply this

  2. Add TagIDs to the Post data for Custom Stores

    We have TagIDs set up within station, and we've added a Custom Store Integration to interface with our other site.
    However, we are unable to send TagIds with the XML for the order in the post data.
    It would be nice if TagIDs were one of the fields that could be sent in the Custom Store Integration XML.

  4. Add storeId to the Shipment Model

    The Shipment Model does not include the storeId which is a crucial element of an Order.

    Basically it is a property of the "advancedOptions" which is always returned as null in the Shipment Request. Why?

    Hello!

    Thank you so much for voting on this feature and helping us continue to improve ShipStation. We are currently reviewing an integration with DarbySmart and will be sure to update you once we have made a final decision.

    As developing a seamless integration typically requires cooperation from both parties, we recommend reaching out to DarbySmart and expressing your interest in an integration to help expedite this process.

    Please note that you can also use our Custom Store or API documentation to create your own integration with this selling channel as well. You can review our documentation here: http://www.shipstation.com/developer-api/

    Thanks again,

  6. Add U-PIC (UPIC) insurance

    Please add U-PIC insurance (u-pic.com) since it is cheaper than ShipSurance and hassle free to file a claim.

    Hello,

    Thank you for submitting this request/voting and helping us to improve ShipStation! We will review an integration with U-PIC and let you know once we have an update.

    In the meantime, you can always select “Other” as the insurance provider in ShipStation, then add the insurance to the package outside of ShipStation.

    Thanks again!

  7. Integration with VendorNet for drop shipping retail relationships.

    Some of our pending retail relationships use VendorNet and we would like to keep all shipping within ShipStation, so an integration with VendorNet would be great.

    I receive multiple orders from Puerto Rico everyday

  9. SED citation on Label and customizable commercial invoice

    We have been employing shipstation as our primary shipping software domestically. We would also like to incorporate shipstation as our primary shipping software for "BULK INTERNATIONAL" Shipments. Currently shipstaton does not offer the ability to add the SED/EEI filed to the label that is generated. To ship internationally the label must have an AES Citation. Shipstation does not cover EEI,Most shipping software such as shiprush and shipwire already incoporate these features and they should be easy to implement.In addition to the AES citation we would like an editable platform for commercial invoice generation. Currently Trade documents are generated with the…

    Hello,

    Thank you for submitting this request and helping us to improve ShipStation! We will need to review the API documentation with our carriers to determine if this is possible with our current integrations. As of now, we send all shipping parameters to a carrier, they generate the labels/manifests/customs declarations/etc in real time, send it back to us, then we allow you to easily print them in our software.

    We will be sure to let you know once we have an update!

  10. Support for USPS Global Express Guaranteed (GXG)

    Would it be possible to add support for the USPS Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) shipping option?Details:https://www.usps.com/ship/gxg.htmI don't see it mentioned on Express1's site, by Endicia supports it:http://www.dymoendicia.com/tools-resources/harrys-hints/global-express-guaranteedSometimes we have orders that ship in boxes too large for USPS Priority & Express, but GXG allows the larger sizes. (ex: 24"x15"x24" to Australia)UPS supports that size, but the rates are significantly higher then USPS GXG.Thank You,Rich

  11. Ability to download tracking information of orders fulfilled by FBA

    In the reports tab, you can only export orders which are shipped via a carrier. If you use a fulfillment provider (like FBA) then you cannot download/export those orders. I think this is a bug. When I reported it as a bug, support team asked me to request as a new feature

  12. Integration with SalesForce

    As I am sure that many of us use SalesForce for our CRM, it would be great if ShipStation would take all of our customer transaction data and put it into our SalesForce ORG and enable us to ship directly through SalesForce. Sending return labels through SalesForce would also be awesome!

    Thanks for submitting this request! While we don’t have a direct integration with SalesForce, there is a service called Cloud Conversion that can send integrate your SalesForce and ShipStation accounts. You can learn more about them here: http://www.cloudconversion.com/

    Please note that this will be a beta integration until there is an official partnership in place.

  14. Make Etsy append variation to the end of an item name like eBay does.

    We have variations for almost all of our products and we use a filter to sort by variations. Since eBay automatically puts the variation in the item name it's great. BUT Etsy variations only show if you click on an individual item. If you could add the Variation to the end of the Item name also my life would be perfect.

    Hello,

    Thank you for submitting this request and helping us to improve ShipStation! As a third party integration, we can only import information sent to us from Etsy. If Etsy does not send us this information, we cannot display it in ShipStation. However, we will review their API and determine if this is something we can support.

  15. Import Warehouse Location from Volusion

  16. Add "Direct Link" As An International Shipping Provider

    Direct Link offers international shipping priced from 20 to 50% less than current USPS International rates. Direct Link is operated by Swedish Post and has 3 offices in the U.S. ShipStation users would ship their International packages to a Direct Link Office, Direct Link ships out the package with a Swedish post mark and hands off to the receiving countries postal system. Also, would want ShipStation to interface with posten.se's API for tracking numbers.

  17. Add Fulfilled By Sears multi-channel fulfillment support (Similar to FBA/Shipwire)

    Is it possible to add "Fulfilled By Sears" multi-channel fulfillment support (Similar to FBA/Shipwire) to shipstation? We would be more comfortable sending additional product to Sears if we could use them to fulfill non-Sears orders as a backup. They have better rates too. Sears already has the basics in place, just need a Shipstation connection I think.https://www.searscommerceservices.com/fulfilled-by-sears/

  18. Need to approve the estimated delivery date before processing an Amazon FBA Fulfillment

    If you create a multi-channel shipment manually in Amazon Seller Central, they'll tell you the estimated delivery date before you approve the shipment request.The problem we're having is that Amazon is often taking up to 5 business days to ship our Expedited (2-day shipping) Multichannel orders. This infuriates customers, since they're paying for 2-day shipping, they don't want to wait 7 business days for their package to arrive.If Shipstation shows us this date, we can abort the fulfillment and choose to ship the order another way.

    Hey @Eric, thanks for posting this. I noticed this one is from October and wanted to see if you’re still experiencing this today.

    I’m not seeing this data being passed over from Amazon so ShipStation can’t post this data for you.

  20. Kickstarter integration!

    It would be a dream to be able to fulfill Kickstarter orders more smoothly, perhaps by plugging Kickstarter directly into ShipStation as a store? Currently we export a CSV file from Kickstarter, sort and tidy up the file (such as add the Item Name and SKU, or make backer change requests), and import the orders to a ShipStation Manual Store that we create for each campaign. Another small pain in the process is the disappearance of special international characters when saving the corrected CSV file in Excel (we're looking into Libre Office to avoid this issue).There are entire services built…
