Include both Billing Address and Shipping Address when d/l 'ing orders
Include all relevant data when downloading order info. Often times I need to contact the person who purchased the products and as it works now I would have to go back to the shopping cart to get that info slowing the process.
Thanks for leaving your thoughts, everyone! We’ll keep this in mind; for now, please leave your votes and comments to help keep this discussion active. Being specific in how this would affect your workflow and how you’re currently doing it will help our product team to implement new features.

As a long time customer of Shipstation, I'm personally insulted that this simple feature has gotten no light of day in almost 10 years. We are CONSTANTLY bombarded with credit card fraud with a billing address in one state and the shipping address at some freight forwarder location in Texas or Miami. We would catch 100% of this fraud simply by having the billing and shipping address show up in shipstation (and optionally on the packing list). There is no good reason why you can't make this happen and you will save your customer's thousands of dollars on fraud each year.

I ran across this thread while I was searching for how to get the full billing address from the API. I assumed it was a mapping issue, but it appears that even though the fields are included with the download (from the API) they are empty. I am writing a new program to process our orders, and I am trying to build fraud flagging into my invoicing system. Having both addresses to compare is crucial to that effort. Has there been any progress on being able to get both addresses into the API downloads?

Too funny! All of these complaints and nothing. It really is an easy feature to add. Would like to know the reason this is not included. Should have the option to show or not show the billing address. It is imperative for fraud lookup as well.

We need to this feature because after importing the order and shipping it we export the data to our accounting software and need both the billing and shipping addresses included.
3.5 years later and no update :( This would improve our workflow tremendously (and apparently many other too!).

I'm having the issue on woo commerce where a customer will place a order via a Buy now Pay later option and they only leave there billing address. This does not import to ship station as it only recognises it as a billing address and not a shipping address!

No votes left but please add we send a lot of gifts out for people and the calls we get asking who was this from taking up a lot of time.

What's the best alternative solution if this doesn't look like it's coming anytime soon?
Jesse Sharron PhotonMD commented
what is the status of this? Integrating ShipStation with QuickBooks to create customers and sales receipts is less than optimal when customer billing information isn't populating in ShipStation from sales channels (such as WooCommerce)

Anything new on this? Now in July and have not heard either way. Please advise

This is a huge feature for us as well.
It will help us greatly with Fraud Detection
Hi everyone thank you for checking in on this. We are still interested in this idea and are looking to prioritize it. We want to keep this idea open so other users can comment and add their votes in the meantime. We'll let you know here when we have an update.

Are there any updates on this? Need this to be an option...

This is very critical and is now a showstopper for us.
Please see the response that we get from shipstation when getting details about an order.
BillTo fields are empty even though customer has entered different billing address than shipping address.
Please look into this on priority.

Yes, agreed. We need this to be available for importing orders into our system correctly. PLEEEEEEASE make it available!

It blows my mind that this is not a feature. Shipstation tells me they already pull the information from the website feed they just don't map it in their database. That sounds simple enough. PLEASE MAP IT!

is this added yet? I need it!!!
Jeff Clemens Gemmer & Clemens, Inc. commented
agreed, this is huge for fraud detection! Please add this!

Bill to address is imperative for catching fraud. We manually check every purchase and if the bill to address is different than the ship to address we contact the bank. We have been burned too many times by this little ploy.

I would like to see the ability to add the billing address to the packing list. some of the accounts we have require the bill to info on the packing slip
