Shipping and Quotes for Multiple Packages
We ship a large majority of our orders in multiple packages and currently do so manually by going into the order, clicking "+" next to "Package" to ship multiple packages, and applying a "Package Set". It would save a lot of time to allow multiple packages when creating new "Preset Groups" under the "Products" tab. Currently, it only allows us to preset one package under "Shipping Defaults" when adding a Preset Group. Please also input a "+" button for multiple packages for the Rate Calculator and when creating return labels. These new additions would improve our workflow and the efficiency of using ShipStation.

Seems like such a basic feature. Please add multiple packages to the rate quote tool. Right now we have to create a fake order just to check rates for a multiple package shipment. Seems rudimentary and sloppy.

We do 600+ shipments a month and were really excited to move to ShipStation up until we discovered that we couldn't quote rates for multiple packages. I feel like being able to quote shipping for multiple packages is a requirement for all shipping software. We were so excited to switch to ShipStation and even tied it to the release of a new Shopify website that would integrate with it and we had to backtrack everything when we hit this wall. I was optimistic that this feature would be added until I found this thread and noticed that it was started 3 years ago and nothing has been done. After 3 years I would like to think ShipStation would at least respond to this feature request. If you read these I would love to know if you are planning to add this feature because if you don't it's unfortunately a deal breaker for our business and I imagine it would be for any other business that regularly quotes shipping for multiple package orders.
Agreed. Many of our products ship in multiple boxes as well. This feature would be great for quotes and the products section.

This is the single reason we are not yet customers and continue to use Shiprush. The only way shiprush is better is for multi-package quoting. Shipstation developers, please put me out of my misery. Please let me give you money.

REITERATING THIS THREAD!

Seems like this is going overlooked, but having a "+" in the rate calculator would help a lot.

Yes, we need to be able to quote multiple box shipments using the rate calculator. For the cost of ship station, you would think this would have been a standard feature built in.
I also would think shipping multiple box shipments would be easier allowing you to select a package and not having to input the package size when using "Package Sets". Seems like someone just forgot to add that when they built the tool.
I hate that I can't quote multiple boxes to ship an order to a customer before they order. I have customers looking for estimates for shipping and doing it box by box is unproductive and labor intensive.

It is a shame that many months later this is still not a feature. Many of our items can ship in as many as 9 boxes. They always ship in the same number of boxes so the pre-sets should allow more than one box. Even 2 would be a welcomed upgrade. Unlimited would be better.

Agree completely. I spend a lot of time quoting shipment costs for potential customers, but have to do outside of shipstation as its not a real order yet. When the capability for multiple packages is available for existing orders, this would be a great update!!!
Yes, to reiterate, please also input a "+" button for multiple packages for the Rate Calculator. This would be a big time saver!
