Email Packing Slip (drop shippers, vendors, etc.)
Send order Packing Slip to an email (3rd party drop shipper / vendors).
Many companies use 3rd parties to ship products.
What's needed is to select an order in ShipStation, and then simply select an option to "EMAIL PACKING SLIP TO: ABC VENDOR (email)".
Very simple solution, that right now is a very painful workaround (having to manually print packing slips to pdf format, find a vendor email, compose the email, attach the pdf, send, then go back to ShipStation and tell it the order is pending shipment elsewhere.
This could also be enhanced with a little automation to pre-split orders that meet certain set criteria, and then automatically email the packing slip for these, and changing the status of the order to 'pending shipping'. The Pending Shipping status would make it easy to see which orders still need to obtain tracking number for (from the 3rd party that shipped that order).

We create custom orders and would like to email a follow up document to our customer. If we could have the option to email a packing slip at the same point as print a packing slip, it would save us from saving to PDF, then composing an email in our email system and attaching that PDF to the customer.
As others are saying, the email would also save us in creating packing slips and labels for dropshippers too.
Just so you know, you can email packing slips through the mobile app, but not through the web desktop program.
Shipstation says that the main reason is phone users want to be able to email things . . . ?
Well I like to email from my computer too

We would be interested in this as well. We currently send packing slip email to dropshipers through our current provider. However we would like to switch to shipstation. This feature is necessary for us if we are to use your software.
