  1. Zpecommerce

    ZpeCommerce is an up and coming eCommerce channel in the UK with a very strong offering vs. WordPress, Wix, Weebly, etc.

    After comparing and trialling WordPress and Weebly, I chose ZpeCommerce because it is so easy to create a professional looking online store. It has most everything integrated, at a v. competitive price and I am almost up and running in a very short space of time.

    What it doesn't have is what ShipStation offers, and I do believe that it would be worth adding ZpeCommerce as a selling channel, especially as it is very likely to attract more attention…

  2. search shipments

    Searching under Shipments should also include Returns results. Currently you need to open Advanced Search and filter for Returns. This is not intuitive and different that the way search works in Products & Orders.

  3. Return shipments by store.

    We need to have a report that shows return shipments by store. We need this to figure our profitability by store. Impossible to pick through thousands of shipping charges to find the ones that are from a particular store

  4. Show all rates when using the CALC button

    when the user presses the CALC button to get rates for all carriers, it would be great to be able to see all the rates, for all carriers on one screen - sorted lowest to highest. thus eliminating the need to look at each carrier and make a decision

  5. Please make it clear that the calculator is not necessarily giving accurate quotes

    I was just using the calculator today to figure out how much to charge my customer for shipping. I went in, used the calculator, and got a "rate" of $33.88 for a 30 pound package to 48315 zip code.
    When that customer actually placed the order and I went to create the label, I entered a 30 pound package weight to the same 48315 zip code the rate was $37.73. That's a pretty substantial difference, and when I contacted support they told me "so the calc does not send the full api call when requesting the rate" and that you…

  6. etsy ship by date

    Etsy Ship By date should import into ShipStation.

    Many Etsy users sell home made products that need specific ship by dates as they need to be hand made after the order is placed.

    This Ship By date can change dependent on the amount of products a user orders and is ever changing. With it not being static, It would be greatly beneficial to import the Ship By from your Etsy connection.

  7. Shipping Costs as a % of Order Value

    As a check to ensure shipping costs are aligning with budgets, a simple formula like the below to ensure that shipping costs stay below X % of total order value.

    Shipping Cost Check = Carrier Rate / Total Order rate.

  8. Royal Mail Account Barcode Unsorted

  9. Have a confirmation on Dismiss all on alerts.

    When you push dismiss all it doesn't ask if you are sure. Doing so would prevent unwanted cleaning of the alerts. I use it to find orders to combine and sometimes I hit dismiss all on accident and it really throws a wrench in the process.

  10. cost of goods

    Hi,

    Shopify recently added a section to enter a Product's Cost or "Cost of Goods".

    I was wondering if ShipStation Reports can pull this information from Shopify whenever I generate a report?

    For example, Shipments > Advanced Search > Ship From Location > (dropship warehouse) > Export > Shipped Line Items

    This would be helpful in keeping track of Cost of Goods on orders sent to a warehouse for dropshipping

  11. User Restriction Requiring Approval To Void a Shipment or Sending a Duplicate Order

  12. Products > Stand Alone Product Detail > Shipping > Check Box (Combine Packages)

    We mainly sell and ship boxes, when customer order more than one unit of same products or other products, shipstation combine weight of all products in one package, we like a setting in product where we can choose to not combine, so we can see multiple packages

    Products > Stand Alone Product Detail > Shipping > Combine Packages (Check Box, by default checked)

  13. Bulk Import Carrier Information on Product Import csv

    Currently you can import the weight and dimensions of an item but not its carrier. The only way to change a product's carrier is by searching for the individual product in the product database and changing it's carrier one-by-one for every product. Specifying a carrier for all your products will take a lot of time.
    Using a csv product import for the carrier would save a lot of time which is valuable to us all.

  14. Control which fields are scanable in 'Barcode Search' function

    Control which fields are scannable in 'Barcode Search' function. e.g. if you don't want Item Codes to be scannable to create a label untick it.

  15. SHIP DATE

    Need a way to track actual ship date. Currently, ship date is entered when creating labels. This is fine but we also need a way to track actual ship date or date label gets scanned in by carrier.

  16. Import Shipping Carrier Info from Weebly into Shipstation

    Currently from Weebly Store orders, we cannot import the Shipping Carrier Info into the Shipstation API for processing.

    3rd party fulfillment centers which work with the Shipstation only relies on the information they see on Shipstation. They have no way to understand what shipping carrier has been selected by customer on webstore.

    Can this feature be added in to source Shipping Carrier in the order info ?

  17. Commercial Invoice currency default by store

    If I had it my way I would ask for the commercial invoice currency to be defaulted by store and manually switchable in the customs information section for each order. This way the correct details (including currency) are submitted to this shipper before the creation of any customs documents. And the shipper should have full control with the ability to default the currency based on the specific store or marketplace.

  19. Link to order details

    Ability to link directly to order details page.
    Hyperlink that goes right to the order details for one of your orders instead of having to search for it.
    something like https://ss6.shipstation.com/#/orders?ordernum=32421334
    People have tried to get this done already.

  20. CONFIRMATION SMS

    it will be a great idea if we were able to send shipment and delivery confirmation via text (SMS), not just emails. As you know some people still not used to emails, tthey dont use emails at all, but they can text, if we can only send shipping confirmation via SMS it will be great, i know there are other softwares that uses this, but i am surprised not to see it as one of your options.
