  1. 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.

  3. API - Make Custom Package types available via API

    Allow custom package types, setup in SHIPPING > PACKAGES > Your Packaging, to be passed via the API. We import shipment data via API to Tableau reporting server. Having NULL values under package type makes it tough to report on volume for specific package types.

  4. 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 ?

  5. 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?

  6. Automated Shipping Price Comparison Between Multiple Carriers

    Automated Rule for comparing 2 or more shipping options and choosing least expensive.

    We ship using FedEx, UPS, and USPS.
    It would save us a huge amount of time and money each year if each order would automatically pick the cheapest shipping option between selected carriers.

    For example:
    1. Order # 1234567 for a "blue widget" gets imported into SS with dimensions 8" X 6" X 4" and weighs 11lbs


    1. Automated Rule checks price for FedEx Home Delivery, UPS Ground, and USPS Priority mail Package.


    2. FedEx: $12, UPS $12.50, USPS $11.50


    3. Order # 1234567 automatically gets assigned to USPS Priority…

  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.

    Thanks for bringing this up! We’ll keep this in mind, but would like to see more interest from other ShipStation users before we pursue a partnership. If you know any other users that are interested please send them here!

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

  8. Royal Mail Customs Declarations

    The Royal Mail integration is generally well done but we're still having to manually write custom declaration labels for non-EU shipments.

    Having moved from a cheaper shipping platform that offered automated labels (exactly like UPS) this is a step backward.

    Can we please have declaration labels for Royal Mail. The digital declaration is going to be required very soon by RM I believe so ShipStation may not be compliant.

    Thanks

  9. FIMS/Mailview Tracking Integration

    Utilizing FIMS is integral to growing our international sales, not having this option usable really hamstrings us and we are practically begging you to work towards having proper tracking numbers populate in the ShipStation integration. The tracking info given is invalid and has caused some serious issues with customer service and cost us a great deal in re-shipments.

    We are overall very happy with ShipStation and this would just make it that much better.

    We appreciate your continued efforts towards offering this integration.

  10. 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…

  12. Please update current integrations with UPS, FedEx, and DHL to support SED/EEI filing

    Hi,
    We use ShipStation domestically only. ShipStation doesn't have the ability to ship international orders when the individual commodity's are worth more than $2500.00 without additional customs documents.
    When we signed up for ShipStation we were under the impression that everything was handled through ShipStation until we were contacted by the carriers seeking customs documents. Please add support for EEI filing through the carriers to fix this. For international shipments we have been forced to ship through the individual carriers, fixing this issue would bring a lot more business to ShipStation.

    There is a demand for this! Who has time…

  13. Port out ord number into FBA Amazon instead of their cumbersome order ID

    I'd like to see my cart's order number ported into FBA Amazon, to maintain consistence and make tracking easier, when there is a delivery problem.As of now, the order number is not ported, so Amazon assigns a unique order ID that is very long and cumbersome.If shipworks ports our order numbers into FBA Amazon, we can trace them when necessary very easily.

  14. 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.

  15. Poshmark added to Shipstation.

    Are there any plans on adding Poshmark? I know they generate their own labels but, Shipstation would help in tracking the orders after the labels are printed. Maybe import the labels and mark them as shipped when printed. It would be nice to have all of our channels together.

    Thank you

  16. UK Courier Integrations

    We would love to use Shipstation if it integrated with our couriers, or integrated with a third party who could help with more courier integrations.

    We use UK Mail, Yodel and DX.

  17. 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!

  19. 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.
