Thanks for your feedback!
Would you mind elaborating on what lot numbers do for your business and items?
Additional info on what you’re currently doing to get around the lack of this feature in ShipStation is also helpful.
Please reply back here in the Feedback Forum, Thank you!
Lot tracing is mandatory for our business as well. We expect ShipStation to add this functionality to its existing inventory management system. Thank you.

This is critical. We need lot numbers on our pick lists and ideally on the invoice/packing slip.
Currently we have a separate operation to print the pick list from Dear. It would be ideal if the lot/batch number would come from Dear to Shipstation.
This is legal requirement to comply with the recall requirements of current food safety law - and it's just good practice.

A lot number is an identification number assigned to a particular quantity or lot of material from a single manufacturer.
The lot number enables tracing of the constituent parts or ingredients involved in the manufacturing of a product. It also gives consumers an identifier that they can use in contacting the manufacturer and researching the production of goods received. its help to trace the product back to origin.
