etsy ship by date
Etsy Ship By date should import into ShipStation.
Many Etsy users sell home made products that need specific ship by dates as they need to be hand made after the order is placed.
This Ship By date can change dependent on the amount of products a user orders and is ever changing. With it not being static, It would be greatly beneficial to import the Ship By from your Etsy connection.

I will not be able to ship any etsy orders via USPS through shipstation until this is implemented. We are shipping 200-300 packages per day and the "ship by date" from etsy is how we determine what goes out for the day.
Yes, this would be so helpful. So frustrating Shipsation has a ship by date column, but doesn't display that info from Etsy.
Plus when you set a ship date in Shipstation, you have to select x number of days from the order date. You can't just select a date. Etsy goes by business days while Shipstation goes by actual days, so you can't even set the ship by date yourself without checking your Etsy orders and individually calculating how many actual days after the order date Etsy is saying it should ship.
We are a large Etsy Shop and having our Ship By Dates import into ShipStation would be a huge help to our business. We have to constantly watch both ShipStation and Etsy's systems, in order to make sure we are not overdue on any of our orders. This is time consuming and it would be tremendously helpful to see our Ship By Dates in ShipStation.
This would be really useful, for exactly the reasons you have stated above.
We manufacture everything to order and we schedule our builds by the Ship By Date. Currently I have 36 outstanding orders and I was hoping ShipStation was going to be a big help to our growth and efficiancy as Etsy's shipping maangement is somewhat limited.
