  1. Override document option to print shipping label only, on the fly

    Please add a new button under label options to just allow the shipping label to be printed by itself. I currently have packing slips and labels to print together by default, so when I print the shipping label, it prints both the label and packing slip.

    There a few instances where I already have the packing slip, so having another button to force the software to print the shipping label only despite default setting, would be helpful.

  2. printers switch

    Every time one of our users at any of our locations changes the printer format size for their labels, it changes ALL of the other users format sizes at the different locations. One of our stores may use a laser printer (8.5x11) whereas one of our stores may use a thermal printer(4x6). Why can't I lock in a printer type for each store without changes being made across the board? it's a very annoying extra step to something that has otherwise been great to use.

  3. Add PrintNode support

    Would you please consider adding PrintNode support (https://www.printnode.com/en)?

    This allows automated printing across the internet. I have a PrintNode docker container running inside my network where my printers are located. I've used this system up until creating an account with you to automatically print my Royal Mail click and drop orders. Even if I'm on the other side of the world, I'd like to be able to print shipping labels automatically without having to download individual PDFs and print them over VPN.

    I the API interface is very simple: https://www.printnode.com/en/docs/api/curl

  5. Do not encrypt tax ID for admin logged in users

    Currently your account's tax ID is encrypted and cannot be seen by either a user or Shipstation's customer support. There is no way for me to see which tax ID is being used and if I update it, I can't see if it was saved properly.

  6. Saturday delivery

    As of right now we are not able to print labels a day early for Saturday delivery, I was hoping maybe something can be done to allow you to select the delivery date with Saturday delivery.

  8. Printer Settings

    Allow different printers to print different options.

    For example, we use multiple printers. Some of our work requires us to print labels with packing slips. Sometimes we just want to print the label with out the packing slip.

  9. Bulk Print Labels with Customs Form automatically

    I print my labels in bulk (Royal Mail) so I get a long line of labels printed. Many of these require customs labels too. Currently there is no option for them to be printed alongside the label , they have to be printed after therefore there is the need to then manually match the label with the customs form.

    Very time consuming and surely a very quick and easy fix.

  10. A need for printing alias sku's on shipping labels instead of sku's attached to marketplace orders.

    It would be extremely helpful if we could print the alias sku's created in Shipstation on shipping labels, packing slips and pick lists instead of printing the sku's from specific marketplace orders. Currently, only the order specific marketplace sku can be printed on the shipping label.

    As our business has grown and evolved, we understand our own needs better. We now have the need to change our internal sku format. We don't want to change these products, just the sku. However, changing these sku's at the marketplace level, especially Amazon is extremely difficult and can be detrimental to product rank.…

  11. click-n-ship account API connect

    since the USPS comes out the new Loyalty Program, it will be nice that shipstation can connect with USPS Click-N-Ship® service so we can earn credit for the label we print.

  12. Printing Order Labels

    I am requesting to add Service and/or Weight to the drop-down option "Order Labels By" in the Label Printing Setup. Our shippers currently filter their purchase orders (50+ individual orders) in ShipStation by the "Service" column to sort Priority/Express orders versus 1st class, but when we actually print the labels for that purchase order they do not print in the order that is displayed. There is not an option to print by Service or Weight which would print them together instead of having to separate them individually from the entire batch. I am aware that we can create different batches…

  13. Prompt Needed to Print International customs forms

    One of the biggest issues we have is that with EDI only some packages need the extra customs forms and Shipstation does not prompt you to print these. You have to manually check each order which leads to errors. It it would be nice to have an (optional) pop-up which prompts you to print the forms after the label has been printed.

  14. Need to be able to reprint labels from the shipstation mobile app by scanning the barcodes from the packing slips!

    Currently, you can reprint packing slips and pick lists but you cannot reprint labels. You have to go and type the order numbers in the shipment page to reprint labels.

    Please add this functionality soon!

  16. Label file names

    It should be possible to have Shipstation automatically create file names for label PDFs that contain a signifying feature like batch number or date so that I can tell them apart. Currently my downloads folder is filling up with 'Labels', 'Labels(1)', 'Labels(2)' and so on..

  17. UPS EOD Scannable Report

    Shipstation needs a scannable UPS EOD report. Submitting and EOD report electronically via EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) does help its sellers. Example: I have a package that was shipped on 07/22, now one day later there is still no update to the tracking number. UPS does not show receiving the package on 7/22. We have no proof to show our customer who paid for 2 day shipping that the item was shipped on time. All the customer sees is that a label was created. However, if Shipstation provided a scannable end of day report like they do for USPS then…

  18. Package Weight Automation

    So this is going to be kind of a long one so bare with me. Our company recently purchased USB Scales to help automate some of the shipping process. There doesn't appear to be any way of actually automatically importing the weight from the scale though. I have to press the scale button no matter what. The way I see it, I should be able to select a box/carrier preset and have it automatically import the scale weight. In other words, there should be an option to have your presets trigger the USB scale and fill in the weight field.…

  19. Automatically printing the Commercial Invoice/COO if the Shipping Label doesn't have ETD listed.

    If ETD is not listed on the Shipping Label we must manually include the other documents (which are the Certificate of Origin and the Commercial Invoice). Another way to see if this the other documents are required is by going into Shipments, typing in the order #, and then seeing if there is a document icon next to the order #.

    At this time, there is no feature in ShipStation that will allow the Commercial Invoice/Certificate of Origin to print with the Shipping Labels if required - we have to print this manually and separately.

    It would eliminate SO much…

  20. Ship Date Tomorrow Button

    Our USPS driver comes are different time every day. We set the ship date tomorrow option to change to tomorrow at 12pm. It would be awesome if there was a button to click or an easy way to change the ship date to the next day. So if she comes at 10am one day we can then click the button or easily change the time so all the packages are then marked to ship the next day. Or opposite if she comes at 4pm all the packages that we packed from 12-4 would be marked to ship as today instead…
