  1. Importing Custom Fields from BigCommerce

    We currently use BigCommerce and we're loving the ShipStation integration. We do have one BIG request, which I know a lot of others would like. We have a custom address field called "PO NUMBER" which we'd love to be able to import into ShipStation. This is important for us as we use ShipStation to send email confirmations upon shipment. Included in this email is a PO #. Our work around so far is to add a CUSTOM item onto the order, so that we can see the PO # as an item in shipstation. We then manually copy/paste that into…

  2. Sorting items within order by SKU

    Once you click into an order to see the items, there is no way to sort those items on the screen. We utilize the images so a printed sorted pack slip does not help. We need a way to arrange/sort items within the specific order on the screen. I know the system is capable of sorting the pack slips by SKU and a variety of other characteristics, please add this same sorting to the popup window that displays the content of an order.

    Thanks for leaving your thoughts, everyone! We’ll keep this in mind; for now, please leave your votes and comments to help keep this discussion active. Being specific in how this would affect your workflow and how you’re currently doing it will help our product team to implement updates and new features.

  3. Awaiting shipment

    STOP automatically placing all new orders in 'Awaiting Shipment' status or overriding whatever merchant settings are in place.

    It's completely unnessecsary and for merchants who have custom order status it's extremly inconvenient.

  4. allow tagging of products to show beside the item name/description within orders.

    This would be really helpful to have a visual cue of backordered or sold out items especially when splitting orders. Having the colored tag beside the name of the item within the order, and within the split window.

  5. PLEASE, allow line item fields to be able to populate with a item upc scan, for inputting items in manual orders

    Allow for upc OR barcode scanning of items to populate line item fields in order edits, OR manual orders. this would be super helpful, and honestly seems strange that it's not already a function. Sometimes I put together comped influencer orders, and want to pull product before i make the order, and being able to scan the order into the fields would save time. I also sometimes need to edit those manual orders, and being able to add products by scanning them would help a lot.

  6. Woocommerce Composite Products

    When importing orders from Woocommerce, ShipStation does not break out composite products. Composite Products are similar to Product Bundles, but with more functionality inside Woocommerce.

    I am requesting the feature to break Composite Products into each individual item, so that pick lists and packing lists will show the actual products in the order.

    Currently, I cannot use ShipStation's pick list or packing list functionality as it shows the Composite Product as 1 product, instead of each of the selected items that are actually to be shipped.

    Woocommerce does properly understand each individual product that was ordered, and manages inventory properly.…

  7. keyboard shortcuts for tagging an order

    I would like to have a keyboard shortcut for tagging an order. Please let me know if this is possible for a future updated version of ShipStation. Thanks

  8. Revoke user permission for cancelling and combining orders

    My warehouse employees sometimes will cancel an order in Shipstation and then forget to also cancel the same order in Amazon or eBay. By the time this becomes a real problem, it's already too late. One time, they combined two orders, one from eBay and one from Amazon, because the buyers had the same first and last name and the orders coincidentally were made within seconds of each other. I need to deny my guys the ability to cancel or combine orders, but still allow them to ship orders. Ideally, these users will need someone with Administration-level permissions to cancel…

  9. Cratejoy Discount Code

    It would really be great if discount codes customers used can be imported into Shipstation from Cratejoy. We use discount codes for things such as 2 for 1 offers, and there is no way to know how to fulfill orders without double checking the backend of our website to know if a sale was a 2 for 1.

    I would be very helpful if the "Items SKU" could be added to the "Shipments Recent columns.

  11. Download settings

    I love shipstation, however its the ONLY software platform out there that is lacking one MAJOR feature of being able to adjust which orders are caught.

    In settings you need to add ability to go back to X-date or X-order number and refresh.

    if an order is left OPEN and then changed to Processed as example or a failed order etc. After a payment resolution or fix on the order and the status is then changed within your cart, shipstation will not catch the order. you then have to wait for 1hr or more for a Shipstation rep to manually…

  12. Product Level Data Points Exposed to Automation Rules

    I have been using shipstation for many years now, and something I have wanted from this software since the beginning, and never been able to dial in, is being able to set up enough criteria to determine the correct way to ship every order that is imported, and essentially have shipstation tell our shippers how to ship an order, what packaging a product goes in etc.

    This is something that should seriously be worked on, as any Retailer with any amount of complexity to their product offerings would benefit from having more intuitive options and control over automation rules.

  14. Add a column to show customer email address in the "order" screen/awaiting shipment

  15. Google Express - Combining Orders Alert needed asap

    Google Express - Combining Orders Alert needed asap

    Per customer support the zip code and email address must be the same for the alert to be produced. This will be an issue as google express seems to create a separate order for each item thus creating a unique marketplace email each order. This prevents the alert from being produced.

    Please adjust your rules/make a way for the Google express orders to provide the "combine orders alert" asap.

    I can provide more info, please contact me if needed as this feature is very important to us.

  16. Export shipping records/costs to Quickbooks online and desktop to properly track Accounts Payable and what is owed to carriers

    I would like Shipstation to export shipping records/costs to Quickbooks online and desktop to properly track Accounts Payable and what is owed to carriers. When an order is shipped and a tracking number is created, it would be helpful is this can be exported to Quickbooks for the purpose of creating a bill under the appropriate carrier (FedEx, UPS, etc.)

  17. Automatically sync orders from ShipStation to Quickbooks

    We use ShipStation to receive orders from many sales channels and platforms.

    While the Quickbooks integration is great, it would be even better if the sync could happen automatically every day or at some other specified interval.

  18. New order - Paste Canadian address

    Currently, the platform allows an entire US address to be copy and pasted in one box within a new order. This would be a great addition for Canadian addresses as well.

  19. Selected Service as Order Filter Criteria

    This is something that is possible to do in the "Shipments" tab when where it would REALLY be useful is in the "Orders" tab but there is no equivalent. To be able to set the selected service (not the requested service or any of the service mapping options, but just the service that is selected in SS currently for the order, as shown in the "Service" column in the order tab). I know it's possible to sort orders by service using the filter column, but what I really want to do is have a filter showing all of the orders…

  20. Filter by Store in Shipments Tab

    Please add a filter by store in the Shipments Tab. You have it in the Orders tab but not Shipments and it would make pulling tracking numbers so much easier for those of us with multiple stores.
