  1. Order Total Counter with LED Display Sign

    How cool would it be if we were able to display the total orders pending on shipstation with an LED wall display. It would show how many orders are pending and when items ship out then it would automatically update on the LED counter.

    I believe this would be great for a team environment and increase workflow if all employees could see how many total orders are pending at any given moment by glancing at the wall display. It would also allow the manager to set goals for the team to achieve and get down to a certain amount of…

  2. Write to "Customer" notes field via automation rules

    Seems like a basic oversight that you can write to pretty much any notes field via automation rules, but not "Customer" field.

    Hi, thank you for sharing this! That field is primarily for notes from a customer to you, the merchant. What kind of information are you looking to add to your orders automatically?

    Custom fields 1, 2, and 3 might be a viable option as they can be used in many other places throughout ShipStation.

  3. COLOR BLIND MODE!!!

    COLOR BLIND MODE!!!

    There is only ONE indication in ShipStation that an order notified the marketplace of fulfilment and it's a whether a shopping cart icon is RED or GREEN. Really? Ever heard of red green colorblind?

    Hi Justin, thanks for sharing this feedback. We’re reviewing notification email statuses and are working on improving this to not solely rely on colors. We’ll update you when we have more information.

    A quick update: You can filter the Shipments page by notifications with and without warnings. You’ll find this where the blue filter links live (right above the shipment list / columns and headers). This is to the right of the “ship date” filter.

  4. 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.

    Hi, thanks for bringing this up! You can make your users inactive and this will remove their access from your ShipStation account. Is there another concern you have in regards to this user’s access to ShipStation?

  6. Search Order box auto clear and select.

    We would like to see the mouse cursor move back to the Search Orders search box after creating a label. It is a bit time consuming to have to go back to the search and clear out the previous order.

    We use touch screens for shipping and with touch it is difficult to select the box and clear out the order. This would be a big help at least for us and I would think others.

    Shipping hundreds of orders per day this really slows us down. Thanks!

    Hi, thanks for bringing this up! Have you considered using barcode scanners in your workflow?

    For example, there are a few things you can do with barcodes like scan to print. Scan to print allows you to scan a packing slip, weigh your package, then print the label. Here’s more information: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/115014262288

    If you still have to make edits to the order, you may want to try scan to view instead: This barcode will pull up the order details as if you keyed in the order number to search for it. Here’s more information: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/212002488

  7. Dimensions

    We would like an option to have Dimensions in the orders/shipment tab.

  8. automatically apply the customs declaration info when shipping to a US territory like Guam.

    It would be super helpful to automatically apply the customs declaration info when shipping to a US territory like Guam. Currently, we have to manually enter this information for each shipment to US territories that require a customs form. If the information can be included for an international shipment, there should be a setting for exceptions, like US territories

    Hi @CustomerService33, thanks for bringing this up. Your orders going to Guam should import with the proper customs information available and this may require additional troubleshooting from our support team.

    Do you notice this with all of the orders going to US Territories or just Guam? Again, I recommend sending this information to our support team from help.shipstation.com for the fastest resolution.

  9. Batch printing settings

    It would be great if before printing a batch, we could choose if it can be printed 1 or 2 labels per page. No matter if I selected the printing shipping labels settings as one per page, the system will print the batch shipping labels 2 per page.

  11. Automatically split items into shipments based on rules

    In the meantime, could you let us know what criteria you would base these rules on?
    Any other workflow information for how you’re currently working around this, and how you would like to do this in the future would be helpful.

  12. A rule to charge UPS shipping to recipient

    I want a rule that would allow us to charge UPS shipping to recipient. Currently, we are able to set up a rule that charges a 3rd party for shipping, which on face, should be the same thing. However, it actually costs the recipient more to do it this way, so we are forced to manually change all orders that come through like this. Seems like it would be an easy fix, since the functionality is almost there in the rules and is already there manually.

  13. Ability to use multiple Shipstation Accounts at once.

    The ability to have multiple shipstation accounts open at once or even switch through accounts through the UI. We have a few different completely different ecommerce businesses running with different shipping softwares. Shipstation is by far our favorite and we'd love to consolidate everything there.

  15. Search for orders using tags.

    Please could you add the ability for tags to be typed into the search bar and bring up specific orders. I know you can do it in the advanced search but this is a slower process. if orders can be searched for using a tag then a barcode for a specific tag could be scanned and the correct order(s) can be brought up increasing speed of workflow.

    Hi thank you for bringing this up! Can you tell us a bit more about what you’re looking to do with these orders once you’ve found them or why you’re looking up orders by tags?

    You may be able to use filters to look for orders marked with specific tags instead. Here’s some information on how you can do that: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/205899958

    Please let us know here in the forum what you think.

  16. Need workflow automation to separate large products into different packages

    We have a number of large items that need to be shipped separately by default. It would be useful to set up some automation that would apply a rule to those products that would always ship them in their own package.

  17. Add Transit times back to the Order Summary Screen

    I know there's Delivery Times/estimates given from the order summary view, but no longer the shipping confirmation window you'd see after filling out the shipping info section then clicking Create Label.

    We utilize barcode scanners and the "Ship the Order(s)" option here at work to quickly process these orders. However, we need to insure that the shipping methods we're selecting are appropriate for the advertised transit times the customer is choosing. We're no longer able to see these times from that window after the update. If possible, adding the Requested Shipping Method as well would be helpful.

    This window is…

    Hi @NateE, thank you for bringing this up! I see your account has a newer version of the cost summary window (there should be a green bar across the bottom of the window). When I looked into my account with the previous version, “Delivery Time” or estimated delivery time only appears in the order details window and the rate calculator.

    Can you describe to me more about where in your workflow the delivery time should be appearing?

    Something else that may help you is an early access feature called Scan to Print. This will help you create your labels quickly using barcode scanners like you are today but with more information. Here’s what it looks like and how you can have it turned on for your account: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/115014262288

  18. Create Automation Rules for Multiple Packages

    If an order exceeds a certain weight, I'd like for there to be an automation rule that separates the shipment into multiple packages. We are a coffee company that doesn't ship anything over 40 pounds, but we regularly get orders over 40 pounds, so it would be great when we get an order like that for an automation rule to separate the order into multiple packages.

  20. Add Internal Notes, Notes From / To Buyer to quick search

    It would be extremely helpful to search orders based on data inside of these notes.

    The advanced search function for this is extremely clunky to use.

    Hi, thanks for bringing this up! Can you tell us a little bit more on what you’re looking for in these notes?

    What might help is to use the order filters for notes (internal notes, notes from / to buyer are located under “Other”) instead of quick search depending on what you’re looking to do with these orders once you’ve found them. Here’s how you can use filters: https://help.shipstation.com/hc/en-us/articles/205899958
