  1. Add decimals to automated weight adjustments

    We ship mostly with USPS first class and use light poly envelopes to ship items out which weigh .5oz-2oz. ShipStation allows you to have products to the tenth decimal, but when we use the automation features to add the dunnage factor of a .3oz envelope, we can only do whole numbers. This actually does make a difference in high volume/low profit businesses where a bump in first class price can make all the difference.

  2. Allow users to select orders in a list and bulk email those customers

    We do a lot of presales on shirts that can't be shipped right away when sold. It would be nice if we could select orders from any list of orders and send an email to those customers. It would just be another action at the top of an order table like hold until, mark as shipped, etc. It would open a dialog that would allow us to put in a subject and a body for an email to update the customers about the status of the items they have ordered. This would cut down on a LOT of support emails…

  3. Support Kitted products / Create "Bill of Goods" / Update Inventory for Kits

    A lot of the SKU's we sell are actually kits of several different items bundled together (example - 200 current comic book bags and boards). Given the current limitations of eBay/Amazon/Shipstation, we are forced to create mutant SKU's for kits like that (for example, this SKU might be something like 2-PACKS-CUR / 2-PACKS-BBCUR, which means 2 packs of current bags and 2 packs of current boards). This isn't the best way to sell kitted items. Most good inventory systems allow you to create a "bill of goods" that will show up underneath a kit SKU. For example, this would show…

  5. Make 4x6 packing slip in Landscape format

    Much easier to read if you make the 4x6 packing slip in a landscape format, You can increase the font size and still keep everything in-line.

  7. Add U-PIC (UPIC) insurance

    Please add U-PIC insurance (u-pic.com) since it is cheaper than ShipSurance and hassle free to file a claim.

    Hello,

    Thank you for submitting this request/voting and helping us to improve ShipStation! We will review an integration with U-PIC and let you know once we have an update.

    In the meantime, you can always select “Other” as the insurance provider in ShipStation, then add the insurance to the package outside of ShipStation.

    Thanks again!

  8. Need Profit Reports

    This program is really good for my Amazon, but its misisng the ability to add Profit Reports, you should create a field where users can input the Cost, the Packaging, and then the shipping automatically gets calculated after a label is printed of course.

    Should also need to pull the amount the sellers receives after fees from each order.

    We’re currently researching and gathering input on all the requirements for true profit reporting.

  9. Include both Billing Address and Shipping Address when d/l 'ing orders

    Include all relevant data when downloading order info. Often times I need to contact the person who purchased the products and as it works now I would have to go back to the shopping cart to get that info slowing the process.

  11. Make it possible to print labels and packing slips/items on Doc Tab

    Usually, you can purchase thermal labels with a doc tab addition on top of the typical 4x6" label. Well, on other programs like ShipRush, we should be able to print item names/packing slip information on the doc tab. This is really really useful!

    Hi, everyone! We read all of your feedback daily and noticed that this idea hasn’t seen any activity since we last checked in. Can you give us more information about how Doc Tabs would help your shipping workflow?

    Please comment here in the forum so other users can add their input as well.

  12. USPS Return Shipping Label without paying postage up front

    The ability to take advantage of USPS Merchandise Return Service and have an option to print a return label with every shipment or selected shipments and not have to pay for the postage unless the customer uses it. I believe this is available through API only and there may be a form you have to submit to USPS: https://www.usps.com/business/merchandise-return-service.htm

    We’re looking into what it would take to build this feature for you. Currently in order to do USPS returns each of you would require your own USPS returns account which costs ~$1,000 per year with USPS. We are researching possible solutions that would not require that expense.

  13. Scan and Verify Product UPC to make sure to Ship right product and Quantity

    Ability to Scan and Verify the UPC code of the product get shipped for the individual order.

    So, this will eliminate the WRONG item being shipped and Wrong Quantity being shipped.

    Also "Ship Order" button activates only when the right product(s) is scanned and right quantity is scanned for the order.

    Products that does not come with UPC may be shipped by manually entering item SKU in the barcode scan field.

    Development for shipment item verification is underway for V3! Planned workflows support: scan Packing Slip barcode or search to pull up the shipment with items and scan UPC or click to verify items. Additional features, settings also in the works. Thank you all for your patience – we know this has been a long time coming.

  14. Have different printers for international vs. domestic labels

    Please enable a feature that you can choose what printer will print labels. To be more specific: we want to print International Priority and express with the regular printer and the rest of the labels in the 4x6 printer.
