Mark as Paid - for multiple orders / bulk action
Currently you can only Mark one Order as Paid at a time. This is extremely cumbersome. I was chatting with support and they even told me it was possible, because the GUI makes it appear so. You are allowed to select all orders on the page and then click the Mark as Paid button, enter your Amount Paid and Shipping Paid info and submit...and you think it's going to work, but then it only Marks the top order in your selection. Such a tease! Boooooo. I'm on my way to go manually mark 75 orders as Paid, so I'll check back here in 30-45 minutes to see if I've gotten any votes. Hopefully I don't fall asleep during this tedious process.And for the record, check out all the other times this has been suggested and archived(I found these in a 2 minute search, there are likely more):http://support.shipstation.com/forums/126593-request-a-new-shipstation-feature/suggestions/3058949-marking-paid-is-redundant-but-being-able-to-mark-mhttp://support.shipstation.com/forums/126593-request-a-new-shipstation-feature/suggestions/6727388-mark-as-paid-with-bulk-actionhttp://support.shipstation.com/forums/126593-request-a-new-shipstation-feature/suggestions/6826953-bulk-api-actionsCan we move all of those votes to this feature request since they are archived?
Hey, @Joe! Thanks for all this!! I’ve gone ahead and merged two of the three. It looks like the user there is asking for a plethora of bulk actions and I’d like to not limit that idea to only mark as paid.
Can you tell us more about how you process your orders? Do all of your orders go into Awaiting Payment, or is this a special subset of your orders?

I have the same issue - please fix. These are orders from Magento where the customer paid with check. They are imported, by default, into ShipStation as unpaid.

It's only a special subset of orders which we take manually(in person/phone/fax/email). All of our ecommerce sales channels come into ShipStation as "Awaiting Shipment", so this is a non-issue for them.
Many times we will have a significant number of manual orders which are free shipping, so a bulk "Mark as Paid' would allow us to knock them all out in one go rather than individually.
From your perspective, I think the user would have to understand that the "Shipping Paid" value they enter will be applied to all orders they have selected. Which is fine with me and seems logical/intuitive. Thanks.
All of my customers are invoiced at the beginning of each month, but I have to go in and mark each individual order 'mark as paid'. Is there a way to do this as a bulk action rather than one at a time???
