  1. Backorder Email

    It would be nice to send an automatic email to the customer when an item that they ordered was placed on back order. Or when an order is split, so that they know why only part of their order is shipping, and not the complete order.
    Thanks!

  2. It would be great if I could customize an email template with the customers first or last name

    Being able to do this adds a personal touch and the email doesn't seem so Generic

  3. end of the day

    It would be great if I don't print an End of the Day report by my cut off time each day and there are shipments, an End of the Day report would be automatically created for me.

    Often times I'm busy packing and or get caught on Saturday without manually creating a report and by the time I go to create one I'm no longer able to. So I have many packages that actually have been delivered and received by the post office but the tracking number for those orders don't show it. Furthermore, I have no proof that it…

  4. Display Less Items in Orders

    This somewhat links to an idea I just opened.

    You guys need to offer functionality to reduce items on the page to like 10, 25 or 50 in orders.

    So we are effectively printing smaller batches.

    I want to keep a better eye out on printed labels.

    It is too cumbersome when we have 100 unshipped labels in orders and I either have to select all labels I want to print, or have to 'select all' and deselect labels I don't want to print.

    There should simply be more functionality that that.

    Hi! So you want to be able to have less than 100 orders on a page at a time? As in, make it so that you can have only 10 orders display per page by default, without the need for tags or filtering views?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Enable Amazon Shipping API for all eligible Amazon Shipments.

    Amazon offers shipping through an API for Domestic and some International destinations.

    Using the Amazon Shipping API comes with the benefit of Amazon taking responsibility for item not received cases, saving sellers money due to non-delivery claims.

    Thanks for bringing this up! We’ve reviewed your idea and the overall user feedback and are closing your idea to give your votes back since there hasn’t been any activity here in awhile. This allows everyone to use their votes on other ideas. The input you gave is still on our radar and your insights are greatly appreciated.

  8. Custom view to show how many orders are in each tag all on one screen

    The tags feature is really the only way to have various "statuses" for orders beyond just the top level "awaiting shipment" or "awaiting fulfillment". We use as many as 50 tags or more for all our various processing stages, we think of them as order statuses.

    One thing that is difficult is being able to see - at a glance - how many orders are in any particular status from a single screen or report.
    In other words, if we want to get all the orders from a certain tag, we have to go filter by that one tag to…

    Sometimes seller/buyer communication consists of Pictures. It would be great if pictures can be attached to the Customers Files in Ship Station.

  11. Make Label Queue Visible to All Users Account-wide

    We need a process that allows anyone who is logged into our account on shipstation via a mobile App or another PC to immediately create a shipping label which would be placed into a queue that everyone on the same account can see. This would allow immediate notification that an order has been processed and would enable our off-site warehouse to print, pack and ship orders that were placed in the label queue. Right now it appears the label queue is not visible across all users who are logged into the same account.

  13. International Date Format for shipment notification Emails

    Currently the date dormat for shipment notification Emails is only available in US format (mm/dd/yyyy).

    We would require international date formats, e.g. we are in Australia and would require the option to report dates as dd/mm/yyyy, Europe might need dd.mm.yyyyy

    Hi thanks for sharing 2SL_Webstore! We’re re-opening this idea to hear more from users like yourself.

    It turns out we misunderstood the original idea. The email date format is currently set to show mm/dd/yyyy and can’t be changed at the moment and the date format in settings only effects the ShipStation interface.

  14. Allow users to sort customer records by Store, not just Marketplace.

    We have 2 stores (retail and wholesale) within one Marketplace (Shopify). It'd make order processing & sorting a bit easier if we could easily break down Customers by Store, not just Marketplace.

  15. Page Numbers for Multi Page Packing Slips

    Many of our orders are longer than one page when the packing slips are printed. We use the packing slips as pick slips and they are the "center of truth" for the order as it is being processed in our warehouse.

    We are looking for the ability to print page numbers on our packing slips (ideally for multiple page orders). We would want the first page of an order to have a 1, the second to have a 2, and so on until the specific order is completely printed. Then on the next order, the first page will be numbered…

  16. Warning when Shipping Cost is greater than Shipping Paid

    How about a warning that can be turned on in setup, that stops an order from being shipped because the (shipping) rate is greater than (Customer) Shipping Paid amount.

    This would need to happen during the shipping process AFTER the weight from the scale is imported/entered and the new rate calculates. The reason this is needed is not all stores can calculate the box to be used and add the weight to the total order weight.

    An example is USPS International First Class. Up to 8 oz the rate is around $13.25. If a customer places an order for 6…

  17. 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?

  18. Ability to Export Internal Notes from the Shipments Page

    It would be a good idea to be able to Export Internal Notes from the Shipments Page. It can already be exported from the orders page.

    We would like to import our customers from ShipStation into QuickBooks with as much detail as possible. QuickBooks has an area to enter notes, and they can be imported if that can be exported from ShipStation.

    Thanks for bringing this up! What kind of information are you looking to pull over into Quickbooks?

    If you’re looking for a way to export data out of ShipStation, you can get the internal notes from your orders page. Once you’ve clicked on “Export orders”, check the box that says “show advanced options”—this will reveal much more information about your orders including the data you’re looking for.

    Please let me know here if this isn’t what you were looking for so we can see if there’s anything else you can do today!

  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. Manually add a new customer without having to import CSV file.

    It would be very handy to be able to manually add a new customer without having to import a CSV file. That way the customer's information can easily be accessed and looked up when they are placing an order in the future. In addition, this would allow return shipping labels to created for items that need to come to us before being shipped back to the customer. For example, in a situation where they are sending an item to us for repair/customization/modification/etc.

    Hi guys! Thanks for your continued support of this idea. While there is not a way to manually create a new customer record, you can create a manual order and as long as it has a unique email address, this will create a new product record for this customer. This manual order can then be cancelled, merged, or even have its manual store deactivated, and regardless of these order-level actions, the customer record will still remain!
