Automation rule that allows for the creation of 2 packages based on SKU quantity
For example, an order for quantity 2 of Shoe A comes in. We pre pack all of our packages/dont have the boxes 2 combine 2 pairs of shoe A into one box, so we need a 2 package shipment to be created. This is currently done manually.
We DO NOT want to "split" the order in our system though. Just make a 2 package shipment.
Hey, @5stars! Thanks so much for taking the time to add your idea here and explaining the challenge your business faces. We’ll keep this in mind for future updates, but for now we’d like to see your idea gain support from other users before moving forward.
When bulky items ship in their original packaging and they are always shipped by themselves there should be an option (I think at the product detail level) to mark the item that it ships by itself. This will allow an order with multiple qty to automatically make it two packages for that order.
This will make batch processing that much easier as you will not need to edit these shipments manually.

We do a lot of multi-package shipping, and having this functionality would be an absolute game-changer for us! Currently there is quite a bit of manual labor involved with getting accurate shipping cost calculations for these larger orders - would love to have this simplified!

Hey Shipstation, this is something I think a bit vital to us. We spend a ton of time manually calculating and adjusting orders for quantity issues like this. For instance, we will get a bulk order of 180 units. This is actually 3 cases of 60 at XX amount of pounds. It would save us a lot of time to be able to have our bulk orders with multiple bulk line items read out a correct shipment value instead of us spending a lot of time each order adjusting them. Please feel free to contact anyone at MiiR for more insight into this issue. It is important to us to have this asap.
This is exactly what I need. Come on shipstation!
