  1. Add Speedee Delivery as a shipping option

    Please add Speedee Delivery as a shipping integration! All of our shipping is equally between UPS, Speedee, and USPS.

  2. Improve Walmart Integration

    The walmart integration does not set values for email, customer ID, or payment method. While those fields are not necessary to ship the order, we pull all shipments out of shipstation via the API to import into our financial system of record (Netsuite).

    If no customer ID is provided by walmart, use the internal shipstation customer ID so it's not null.

    If no payment method is supplied by walmart, hardcode something like 'walmart'.

    Email address would be nice to ask walmart to provide. Ebay and Amazon provide it.

    thanks

  4. API - Allocate/Deallocate

    The API should allow us to allocate/deallocate orders. I use the API to put orders into the system and until they are shipped, my inventory levels are not decreased, so I have no idea how much stock I have until I manually go allocate each order. We ship on a specific schedule, so because we don't ship every day, I always have outdated inventory information unless each morning we manually go and allocate orders.

    Seems simple enough to add as the UI does have an API call that does this very easily. Thanks!

  5. Allow Cart Attributes to be Mapped to CustomFields (Shopify)

    Allow specific Shopify Cart Attributes to be mapped to ShipStation's CustomFields. This would need to be based on the key of the Shopify Cart Attribute. For instance, the Cart Attribute with the key of "date" might be mapped to "CustomField1".

    Cart attributes are Shopify's primary extensibility point for individual orders, allowing app, theme, and shop developers to add custom properties to an order:

    https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/cart/get-more-information-with-cart-attributes

    CustomFields (e.g., CustomField1) are the analogous concept in ShipStation:

    https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/205928478-ShipStation-Custom-Store-Development-Guide#4a

    ShipStation currently imports Shopify Cart Attributes as part of the [Notes From Buyer] field. ShipStation, however, does not allow Shopify Cart Attributes to be mapped to…

  6. Filter "Hidden" Line-Item Properties from [Item Options] (ShipStation)

    Line-items properties in Shopify typically represent item options, such as special instructions (e.g., the text for an inscription). These are automatically imported to ShipStation as part of the line-item's [Item Options] field, which can optionally displayed on Packing Slip Templates.

    Sometimes, however, these are used for internal communications between e.g. Shopify apps. To support this, Shopify themes have a built-in convention where line-item properties prefixed with an underscore (e.g., _internalOption) are hidden from the customer:

    https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/products/get-customization-information-for-products#hide-line-item-properties

    Unfortunately, while these will be hidden on Shopify, they will be displayed on packing slips as part of the [Item Options] property (alongside valid…

  9. White label tracking page

    We'd like the ability to use tracking.ourdomain.com as the tracking URL and remove the ShipStation branding. This could be a premium add-on for a few extra dollars a month.

  10. Zoho Inventory Integration

    Hi
    We've been on shipstation for many years now. We're moving into the wholesale business, and need to use Zoho for our CRM to best prospect and manage accounts. We need transaction data back to Zoho so we can see how accounts are trending, etc. Anyway - we're using Magento as our front-end, but Zoho Inventory for our ERP (and it talks to Zoho Books, and back to CRM and to Support - yada....) All in, we'd like to be able to book Sales Orders in Zoho Inventory (instead of Magento) and SHIP from Zoho Inventory. This is all a…

  11. Import Amazon.ca FBA CA (Canada) orders. [like we can now with Amazon.com FBA (USA)]

    Hello, for Amazon.com there is an option for:

    "Import FBA Orders
    These orders will be visible in “Insights” and either “Pending Fulfillment” or “Shipped” based on their status. Note: FBA orders will count towards your plan volume."

    When will this ability be available for Amazon.CA ?

  12. DHL eCommerce - Canada Integration

    Would love to see DHL eCommerce comply with Shipstation for shipments from Canada. It currently complies with USA but not yet available for Canadian Shipstation customers. We are located in Toronto and are eager to start shipping with DHL eCommerce as they offer incredible resources, but without Shipstation integration it isn't feasible.
    Can we get this implemented?

  13. Allow delivery to UPS Access Points

    http://compass.ups.com/new-ups-access-point-locations/

    Allow delivery to UPS Access Points. According to UPS, this requries a different kind of label, and the cost is a little different - somewhere between ground to a commercial address and ground to a residential address.

    Thanks for your comments and feedback everyone!
    As updating/adding features to an integration typically requires cooperation from both parties, we recommend reaching out to UPS and expressing your interest in adding this feature to ShipStation to help expedite this process.
    Additionally, any further comments for how often UPS Access Points are being used outside of ShipStation on a daily/weekly basis would be very helpful!

  14. Shipstation inventory management multichannel

    Great to see the new shipstation inventory management solution!
    We were initially excited because it seemed to be able to replace stitchlabs. If shipstation was able to send stock counts to selling channels, it would be amazing! We, along with other stitch users I'm sure, would be happy to pay a higher premium for your services.

  18. Add insurance option to shipping calculator

    It would be nice if there was a field in the shipping calculator that will allow us to quote the shipping cost with the carrier insurance included. Right now, we have to either make an order, or click Create Label and then add the value and go through each shipping method to give the customer an accurate cost.

  19. 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?
