  1. Custom Alerts after create label

    We would like to be able to create custom alerts for our shipping team to try and avoid minor errors that can be made. For example dimensions not being entered for packages over 1 lb. We have 2 UPS account, so not selecting the correct account. Currently you get alerts for packages that have insurance or if the address is too long and will get cut off.

    I think this can be a great plus for a lot of customers using the software and will also be able to create a lot of auto-filters you can't make on order import.

  2. Order Refresh Button - Check for updates to an already imported order

    If an order has been pulled into SS, and then subsequently the customer contacts the seller to make an order change (Add an item, remove, etc) the order is not updated within SS. Regardless of how many times you request a refresh, an orders contents that has already been pulled into shipstation is not re-checked.

  4. Email Packing Slip (drop shippers, vendors, etc.)

    Send order Packing Slip to an email (3rd party drop shipper / vendors).

    Many companies use 3rd parties to ship products.

    What's needed is to select an order in ShipStation, and then simply select an option to "EMAIL PACKING SLIP TO: ABC VENDOR (email)".

    Very simple solution, that right now is a very painful workaround (having to manually print packing slips to pdf format, find a vendor email, compose the email, attach the pdf, send, then go back to ShipStation and tell it the order is pending shipment elsewhere.

    This could also be enhanced with a little automation to pre-split…

  5. Ship Multiple Packages duplication populate the next shipment information

    When you first click the green arrow to Ship Multiple Packages, the 1st package reflects the data you entered already. The 2nd package is blank. When you duplicate the 1st package, it skips the 2nd blank package and makes a 3rd package. (You then have to delete the 2nd package.) It should simply populate the 2nd package (or the next empty package).

  6. Combine matching walmart products automatically

    It would be great if you can combine matching Walmart products automatically as right now if a customer orders more than 1 quantity of a product ship station imports them as a separate line item for each quantity.

  7. Add Tracking Number to Export Orders

    This is maybe small, but it'd be huge for us.

    Can the tracking number please be included in the fields you can choose for Orders > Other Actions > Export Orders?

    Hi @Erica!

    Thanks for bringing this up! What goal are you looking to accomplish with this export? There may be another report that can help.

    If you go to the Insights page and click on reports, you can run the “Shipped Items” report that will give you things like order number, SKU, and tracking number, too.

    Please let us know here if this other report works for you by commenting here in the forum so we can open discussion with other users. Thanks!

  8. "Shipping Account" Field

    The "Shipping Account" column (that shows exactly which account is used, beyond just "FedEx" etc), should be a field available in the export report - currently it is not in the list of Available Fields, even when selecting "Show Advanced Options"

  9. sort by coupon code

    We offer a coupon code for people who live nearby and want to pick up their order instead of having us ship it. However, I cannot find a way to easily tag an order that has a particular coupon code with it. This would be a really helpful feature for us!

  10. Mark as shipped only after it's scanned into the system

    Mark as shipped only after it's scanned into the system. Need an intermediate status of "Label Printed". We get hundreds of orders each day and have the labels printed immediately. It is not easy to figure out which ones have actually been shipped and which ones just have the label printed.

  12. Shopify Payment Method

    I need to create an automating rules base on the customer payment method like CC or PayPal.

    I use Shopify and it seem that Shopify does send you the info it just that ShipStation do not save this information.

  13. Send Email Containing Order Details, Packing Slip & Ship Label to Supplier for Drop Ship

    We need to send suppliers an email containing a single (or multiple) order(s) details along with the packing slip and shipping label for drop shipping. A button on the Order's Detail pop-up window that says EMAIL TO would be helpful. It should contain a drop-down of the supplier and a check box to include the packing slip and/or the shipping label. This will save us time having to copy/paste the information from with ShipStation into a separate email message. Also the ability to CC to ourselves should be included.

  14. Calculate Total Package Dimensions Using Ordered Products

    A customer orders several products. Use the dimensions of each product to calculate the total cubic inches of the order. We can then use this information to choose the correct box size for those of us that use cubic shipping. Seems like that would be pretty simple to do!

  16. New Order / Manual Order features wanted - Ship From Warehouse, Tags, Internal Notes

    A majority of the time when I make manual orders I have to find the order by searching in SS so I can add specific information. The ability to 1) Choose a Ship From Location, 2) add a TAG and 3) add Internal Notes in the Manual Order screen would be very helpful.

  17. Ship by date - Also allow for specifying business days

    For some orders we have a timeframe of 5 business days until order is due to ship. It would be nice if I could specify business days for Ship By Date, instead regular 5 days.

  18. Allow for "And" or "Or" selection in Automation Rules setup

    when creating rules, sometimes we need multiple rules. The current method assumes "AND" between rules. For example, if we want to create a rule to put orders on hold where "Address Verified" = "Error" or "Warning" we have to create two separate rules as using both assumes an
    AND condition and the rule will not work because the order is not both Error and Warning status.

    Hi!

    So for this request, you would like to be able to have rule 1 be applied, then if rule one is applied, have rule 2 also apply to the order. But this would be contingent on rule 1 being applied first?

  19. 60 day Order Activity Deletion

    Why would you have all order activity & history delete upon 60 days automatically? This is information that should stay indefinitely with any order that is created. Your agent replied that "If we did not delete history after a certain amount of time, that would be an exceedingly large amount of data to store." which may be true, but its one reason why we are paying for your software & service. Besides cutting-cost on your end financially, there is absolutely no benefit to any users by doing this. Please allow Order Activity to be retained indefinitely on any order. If…

    Hi Caleb!

    An order’s record itself can never be deleted. It can be inactivated, but an order cannot be deleted. No order entry will be permanently wiped from the system. However, the system is working as intended that the order activity is removed after roughly 2 months.

    And to help us understand your workflow, how frequently are you going into orders that are older than 2 months old to check the activity? And is this under situations such as a wrong delivery address or when trying to see who on your team shipped a package, etc. that you go back to view these older orders’ activity?

  20. manual override setting needed for residential/commercial address type

    SS discovers the address type through verification. But if verification doesnt work (international or brand new domestic location for instance) then Fedex shipping will default to commercial. This causes problems because ISR is not a valid signature option for commercial delivery. Also residential delivery uses the Fedex Home service not Fedex Ground. These services have different rates, schedules, and delivery options. If you create a shipment on fedex.com there is a checkbox there to allow you to declare the address as residential. SS needs the same capability.
