Product Feedback & Fresh Ideas

The ShipStation Feedback Forum collects your ideas and allows you to vote and comment on other ideas so our product team can understand what new features are most important to you or what business challenges we need to address next.

Everyone has 20 votes to spend on ideas that are important to them (but you can comment as much as you like). 

While all ideas will get reviewed, it's simply not possible for all ideas to make it onto the product roadmap. The more activity an idea has, however, the more likely it is to be considered. So, be sure to check if your idea has already been posted so you can add your votes and comments to it! 

Suggestions for Writing a Great Idea Post

  • Write a title to succinctly summarize your post. Other users should be able to identify if their idea is similar to yours just by reading the title so they will know to vote and comment on it!
  • Explain the problem you are trying to solve and what you think should be added or changed in ShipStation to solve this problem. 
  • Describe how you would use this feature or how you think it should function to serve your need.
  • Attach a screenshot to help illustrate your point. 
  • Put the idea in the category that best fits what you are trying to accomplish (for example: Order Management, Insights & Reporting, or Printing & Documents).

What to Expect With an Idea 


Our moderators will regularly review posts to ensure:
    • They are categorized in a logical way. If not, they may move them to the proper category. 
    • The title accurately reflects the idea content so others can understand. If not, they may edit the post title to help others identify posts they want to vote and comment on.
    • That posts are really ideas and not bug reports or issues that require contacting our support team. 
    • That any request that has an existing solution or can be accomplished with existing features gets a response to let everyone know a solution or feature already exists and how to learn about it.
Our moderators will also update the statuses of posts as they are considered by our product team. If an idea makes it onto the roadmap, we'll update the idea status from Planned to Started to Completed as work progresses on the idea. If an idea is declined or archived, our moderator will update the status to indicate so and you will receive your votes back to use on other ideas in the future. 

Finally, if more information is needed on an idea, the moderator will post a reply to ask for them. If it is your idea or you have commented on the idea, you should receive an email notification when this occurs.

  1. Etsy gift wrap/gift message integration

    Etsy is getting ready to integrate gift wrapping and gift messages into their sales platform. I'm hoping there will be an alert for each order containing this information within ShipStation once it goes into effect. Gift messages are going to be made available to all orders at no charge, so every Etsy seller will have to deal with them whether they want to or not, and I am concerned I'll get a gift message request and not know about it.

    Ideally, I would also like to see a way to print ONLY gift message packing slips and not every packing…

    Thank you everyone on your patience with this request!

    As of March 12, 2021, ShipStation will now import the is_gift flag and the gift_message field from Etsy. If a gift message is present on the order, it will appear in the Gift Message field for the order in ShipStation.

  2. Add Google Express / Google Shopping Actions Integration

    It would be nice to have Google Express / Shopping Actions integrated into Shipstation. I would like to see this happen anytime before the end of the year.

  3. Support for Amazon Custom orders

    For sellers that have access to Amazon Custom, it would be very helpful to provide the capability to display and/or download custom order information.The following link from Amazon gives a brief overview on how to fulfill custom orders: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/help.html/?itemID=201822830&ref=ag201822830hr1contsgsearch

  5. Ebay Delivery Guarantee

    Ebay has introduced a new "Delivery Guarantee" that offers us the ability to guarantee delivery time OR handling time for packages.

    If we choose the Guaranteed Handling Time option, Ebay will guarantee the delivery, and if it's late, they'll refund the customer the shipping. The only catch is they are (so far) going to require we use Ebay labels to print postage for packages, which is time consuming versus using ShipStation. Could your API developers please reach out to Ebay and see if we could get ShipStation as a "qualified provider" so we can keep using SS and still be…

  7. DPD local

    Although DPD and DPD local are part of the same group, DPD Local is the largest direct to consumer and in our experience provide by far the best rates and service compared to other carriers we have used in the past. Intergration with DPD local would by far make ShipStation a far more poplar platform here in the UK.

  8. Add Canpar Courier for Canada Shipments

  10. Auto-Schedule FedEx Pickup

    It would be really nice if, when you ship using FedEx, you could have an option to automatically schedule a FedEx pickup without having to go to their website separately and request a pickup.

  11. Revert tracking link back to USPS tracking, NOT Stamps.com

    No idea why Shipstation thought that changing our tracking links from a direct link to USPS tracking to a third party (Stamps.com) tracking link was an "upgrade". It's a downgrade, and now a separate step to copy the tracking number and open a new window for USPS tracking in order to see more complete information. The Stamps.com tracking is not useful. We should have either USPS tracking or the option to toggle between either.

    completed  ·  ShipStation Team responded

    Thank you all for your feedback and all of your votes. We have taken note of your feedback and we have reverted this change. We now have gone back to using USPS tracking pages.

  12. Add the Hold At FedEx Location service to Shipstation

    Would like to see the "Hold at FedEx Location" added to the shipping options in ShipStation for FedEx.

    We offer this as an option to our customers so they do not have to worry about items being stolen or "misplaced" while they are away from home.
    It also allows us to ship Via Ground which saves us money on shipping cost.

    Last month we released limited support for FedEx HAL We support FedEx HAL for BigCommerce stores that are configured with the ShipperHQ plugin (which provides in-cart ability for buyers to send shipment to a FedEx location).

  16. magento 2.4.0

    Add Support for Magento 2.4.x
    After Magento upgrade from 2.3.5 -> 2.4.0 ShipStation is dead! We cannot sync or upload or download any orders, or any other functions. Please add Support for Magento 2.4.x
    This is truly frustrating to see how ShipStation being slow on upgrades to latest version of the sales channels. Magento maybe complicated I agree, but for us it is very important as it is the best shopping cart for business with over 100,000 SKUs, processing over 1,000 Orders a Day, and having a Multistory / MultiChannel / OmniChannel capabilities.

  17. New Carrier: Startrack

    We would like to see more Carriers added to ShipStation. We like Australia Post, but would love to see Startrack as a new Carrier, which belongs to Australia Post.

    Startrack offers excellent services such as Fixed Price Premium, which is a very price competitive B2C overnight/Express service, as well as Road Express, which helps with B2B.

    Australia Post does offer Express Service, but it is rather expensive and not "Fixed Price".

    Thanks!

  19. Provide realtime carrier rates to BigCommerce Checkout

    Hi,
    It would be highly profitable for ShipStation if you where to implement this feature:
    1. Collaborate with BigCommerce to enable bigcommerce to request real-time shipping rates from ShipStation (who would request it from the users configured carriers)
    2. After ShipStation provides the realtime rates back to bigcommerce, have bigcommerce display these rates in the shopping cart "Estimate Shipping" and during the Checkout process.

    This will really make ShipStation stand out as an attractive option for bigcommerce users looking for better shipping management.

    The ShipStation API already provides support for retrieving shipping rates. It would not be too difficult for…
