SED citation on Label and customizable commercial invoice
We have been employing shipstation as our primary shipping software domestically. We would also like to incorporate shipstation as our primary shipping software for "BULK INTERNATIONAL" Shipments. Currently shipstaton does not offer the ability to add the SED/EEI filed to the label that is generated. To ship internationally the label must have an AES Citation. Shipstation does not cover EEI,Most shipping software such as shiprush and shipwire already incoporate these features and they should be easy to implement.In addition to the AES citation we would like an editable platform for commercial invoice generation. Currently Trade documents are generated with the same billing and shipping we would like to provide examples/images of a template that will allow us editable commercial invoice to both attached electronically and print out of shipstation for export purposes. Thank youRegards,
Thank you for submitting this request and helping us to improve ShipStation! We will need to review the API documentation with our carriers to determine if this is possible with our current integrations. As of now, we send all shipping parameters to a carrier, they generate the labels/manifests/customs declarations/etc in real time, send it back to us, then we allow you to easily print them in our software.
We will be sure to let you know once we have an update!

@ShipStation, Any update on this? This would help us out too! We are doing a trial now and might not continue because of this lack of SED/EEI support.

I just signed up for ShipStation and was shocked that you do not provide EEI integration! I would be happy to apply for an EEI number through Fedex and paste it into ShipStation if that was the only way to get it to work. Having to jump back and forth from ShipStation to Fedex Ship for those orders is disappointing.

It would be a huge benefit to allow for the EEI integration. I hope it happens!
Yes, this will ship high value international shipments through ship station. Currently if a shipment requires the SED/EDI than we can't use ship station.
YES! YES! YES! DO THIS!
We're currently shipping close to 900 shipments per day, about half of which require EEI filing. I've been asking ShipStation for a year to implement this, so far, without success. This would be a GREAT help. Please do this ASAP!
