Product Feedback & Fresh Ideas

ShipStation’s Feedback and Fresh Ideas Forum is moving!


We have started the process of moving our ideas forum to a new home in the ShipStation Community.

As of August 4th, 2021, this Feedback and Fresh Ideas Forum is no longer accepting new ideas, votes, or comments. However, this forum will remain visible until shortly after the new Ideas board on the ShipStation Community goes live. After that date, this forum will no longer be visible.

If you would like to post an idea after August 4th but before the new Ideas board is live, we have created a temporary discussion board in the community for you to do so. Once our new Ideas board is live, our moderator will move all posts to their permanent home.
______________________________________________


ShipStation has used this same forum since we released our very first version back in 2011. In that time, we’ve implemented hundreds of our users’ ideas! But, as our users and our product has evolved, we’ve realized the way we seek and manage our users’ feedback must evolve as well. Starting in September, all feedback and ideas discussions will take place in the Ideas board of the ShipStation Community

If you are not already a member of the ShipStation Community, please join! You can participate in user discussion boards, read exclusive community blog posts, earn rewards through community exclusive events, and much more. To join, go to community.shipstation.com and click the profile icon. You’ll be prompted to log in to your ShipStation account and then redirected back to the community where you can set your unique username and customize your profile (if you wish). Once registered, you can participate in any discussion on the community. 


What will happen to the existing Feedback and Fresh Ideas posts?


Unfortunately, we cannot move all ideas to the new Ideas forum. The posts we are not moving are being set to the  "Archived" status in this forum.


The posts we do move will maintain their statuses, voter count, comments, and link to the original poster. 

Posts we will move to the new Ideas board: 

  • All posts in Started, Planned, and In Consideration Queue statuses.
  • Some posts in the Under Review status or with no status, based on post age, recent activity, vote count, and relevance.
  • Posts that have been set to Completed within the last 12 months.

  • Hot ideas
  • Top ideas
  • New ideas

  1. Automate EORI Numbers

    It is a legal requirement that EORI numbers are used on shipping goods from the UK to EU and Rest of the World. This field has been implemented granted, but still requires manual intervention to apply the EORI to each order, not an easy task when shipping 1000's of parcels a week off shore. Can this not be automated by rule, that when shipping to EU, the EU EORI number is selected, and when shipping outside of the EU (Rest of World) the UK EORI is used?

  2. USMCA Certificate of Origin

    With USMCA replacing NAFTA, I would love to be able to print a certificate of origin while printing shipping labels. We do a lot of business with Canada and this would help us save our customers money and thus do more business.

  3. Batch Summary in V3

    Currently batch summaries are only available in the legacy view - we do a lot of split shipments between two fulfillment facilities which requires V3 to notify customers correctly in our Shopify platform.

    Please add Batch Summary printing to V3!

  4. Remove discount as an item

    I have a shopify store and it would be very helpful if you could remove the discounts from the line items.

    When I add the total QTY to my footer, it always adds the discount. This confuses my team and unnecessary steps/time to making sure we aren't missing an extra item. Please help.

  5. PICK LIST RANKING

    We have multiple warehouses.It would be great if our pick list starts from warehouse A in order A1-A2-A3,,,,A499 while preparing the orders.do the same thing more B1-B2-B3,,,, then,,B499 would be really cool,Unfortunately it starts with A103 or a different number instead of A1
    You can easily see this when you look at the photo.

  6. Printing Pick List

    Please allow change of size from 8.5x11 to a 4x6 thermal print. Printing that large of paper is a waste for our company. We are unable to read off a thermal printer due to size and color.

  7. More label and packing list sort options

    Currently, I can sort the way labels and packing list print; by SKU, by Warehouse location, etc. I would like to have multiple options. For example, print labels and packing slips by order number (oldest first) and then print by Warehouse location, then by sku. I have labels and packing slips set to print by warehouse location which is a must for our operation but it would help to have packing lists and labels print by order number as well, especially when batch printing.

  8. E-Bay Product Descriptions

    New E-Bay connection brings in "Item Options" rather than a description or title. These item options cannot be overridden by descriptions saved in Shipstation. This should be changed so we can customize e-bay product descriptions just like we can do for every other store.

  9. New Dropdown Menu Design - Please Revert Back

    Please go back to the prior drop down menu layout design for selection of shipping carrier, shipping method and other activities when creating a label.

    The new layout is TOO TALL for each entry and less efficient to navigate. The prior menu was clearer, quick and easier to make selections. (It is NOT a browser issue. I've verified it occurs in all popular browsers)

    Now, on an account with multiple shipping carriers and methods we scroll for days down the menu. C'mon ...

    Honestly, who comes up with and approves ideas that make function less efficient?

  10. "Gift Message"

    Looking to be able to print off customer gift messages as a separate form from the shipping and pack slip labels. Need a way to include more than 26 characters for a gift message.

  11. Branding on Royal Mail shipping labels

    Hi there, It would be good if it was possible to add company branding to Royal Mail shipping labels. See uploaded example

  12. Increasing limit of orders on End of Day (EOD) report (Royal Mail)

    At the moment, Shipstation only allows 250 items per sales order (EOD manifest) with Royal Mail. This means that users cannot benefit from volume discounts provided by Royal Mail (as these orders need to be on the same sales order.

    For example, I get a sales discount if I send out 400 orders per day, these will be split into 2 sales orders (of 250 and 150). I get a discount from Royal Mail for sending out 300 orders, but this will not be recognised, as neither sales order shows 300 orders.

    There should be no upper limit on orders…

  15. ERROR- Ship To Phone must be no longer than 25 characters.

    Issues printing Labels as ShipStaion doesn't allow more than 25 characters.

    I import data from Amazon (USA) orders into Shipstaion via Channel Advisor and for data protection Amazon provide a number in this format.

    +1 123-456-7891 ext. 12345

    Due to the spaces, "-" and ext. i have to manually edit each order (phone number) before i can print.

    This is not fun and i cant be the only person this affects.

    I think you should extend the character limit on the telephone number field to fix this issue.

    Cheers

    Craig

  18. Ability to specify what Options to display on Packing slip for the other option field

    Currently with the new integration with ebay "Other Option" field not only shows color, size, but also prints description in the parking slip. Previously legacy integration was limited to color and size. Request ability to select what to print or just update to include color, size in the print.

  20. bluetooth enabled scanners

    I think it would be very helpful if bluetooth barcode scanners were able to be used in scanning packing slips that print on labels. For example, the majority of sellers are using either a tablet or an iPad that would need the capability of connecting to bluetooth with ShipStation. I was unaware that you cannot use a bluetooth barcode scanner with ShipStation and that is a major drawback for me. Please let me know if there is something that I may be missing and it will work, but if we could somehow be able to implement that, it would be…
