Update Product weight and UPC while Shipping
Please have a button or way to save product weight while processing shipments so we do not have to go into the product database or import the product details separately to update new items or correct incorrect items.
For example, manufacturer has all the weights at 16oz, but really several are 15. This can make the difference of a couple dollars per shipment. Another example, Excel removed a leading 0 on UPC and it isn't scanning correctly. This would allow us to update product details on random items MUCH faster without disrupting the flow of shipping.
It can be limited to authorized users if people are concerned with shipping-only employees being able to update the weights.
This is now possible in ShipStation’s new layout!
When you are working on an order, you can open the Product Details from the Orders Details by clicking on the product name.
In the Product Details, you can enter the weight (and other details, like UPC) and then click the option “Apply Changes to Open Orders” before saving the change.
This will then apply the weight – or other product detail – you just entered to all other orders that contain that product and are still in the Awaiting Shipment status.
ShipStation will also apply these details (called Product Defaults) to orders containing that product as soon as they import from your selling channels.
