Add your own carriers to mark as shipped list
We use a variety of shipping and freight options that are not available as carriers in shipstation. When we choose a shipping company outside of shipstation we will come back and manually mark the order as shipped. But when we go to select the carrier we are using, they are not available so we have to select "Other".
We should be able to create CARRIERS so we don't have to select "other" for every outside shipping company. Adding new carriers would make it easier to keep track of which carrier was used instead of relying on a tracking number and the carrier "other"
MANUALLY ADD UNIQUE CARRIERS
Thank you for your feedback!
We are taking all the feedback about improving our mark as shipped options into consideration for some upcoming improvements. We will update this post when we have further details.
For about 10% of our orders we either deliver the products or the customer comes and picks up the order. Right now we have to either cancel these shipments within ShipStation (which then messes up Magento 2) or we have to use the "Mark as Shipped" functionality. With Mark as Shipped we want to be able to setup our own carriers so we could then choose 'Customer Picked Up Order' or 'Order Delivered'.

Hello, I have my own van as a delivery method for anyone who orders locally. I filter orders by postcode and then bulk update them as shipped. At the moment I have to mark the courier as Other, but I would like to mark that as delivered by our own van, is there a way I can add my own van to the carrier dropdown list?

We do alot of free local deliveries and so mark as "Other" in the list. Can we add an option that is “Local Free Delivery” – basically us getting in our car and delivering?
Ideally, if SS can know that will be the method saving us time and room for error - by taking data from WooCommerce or we can set up the same rule as we have in there using Postcodes that we deliver free to?
I support your idea of adding an extra careers to ship station.
We mostly ship with UPS, however, we have some customers for whom we use UDS.
Now, we choose "other" to let customers know that their orders have been shipped, but when they receive a confirmation email, the link doesn't lead to the desired page to track a package.
We have to manually send the link to UDS's website. This is an extra work, and when it's a busy season, it's undoable.
Ship Station, could you please add UDS as an additional career, so that it will help us easily communicate with customers and not have problems.

Please add tracking support for the following 2 carriers.
LSO - https://www.lso.com
Dicom - http://east.dicom.com/
There may be some other carriers we use sometimes but if you don't support them, when we select "Other" in the drop down, you should give us the ability to add the tracking link manually.
