Thanks for leaving your thoughts, everyone! We’ll keep this in mind; for now, please leave your votes and comments to help keep this discussion active. Being specific in how this would affect your workflow and how you’re currently doing it will help our product team to implement new features.Eric S. commented
I am a new Shipstation User and this is one of the first things that disappointed me. We have to go to each sales channel to verify the billing address for fraud prevention and also we have copy it from each order so we can paste it in our Quickbooks Invoices and Packing Slips. We currently integrate Shipstation with QuickBooks Desktop but because the Billing Address is not supported by Shipstation, it is not exported to QuickBooks.
I believe we should not be discussing this feature. It should have been included from day one.

Selling Bundles or kits on e-bay and Amazon is a very common practice among sellers.
A bundle or kit should be a type of product that allows multiple standalone or variant products to be added to constitute a single SKU.
Printing Picking and Packing List:
There should be an option to select how this bundle should be printed in picking or Packing list.
Option 1: Print the SKU and description of the bundle including a list of SKU’s/Descriptions of its components.
Option2: Pint a list of components only (SKU’s and descriptions) as if they were standalone or variant products
Bundle Price and individual component prices:
For those who integrate Shipstation with an accounting software like QuickBooks, It is essential that the price of the bundle sold on a marketplace like Amazon and eBay matches with the sum of the individual products included in the bundle that will be transferred to the accounting software. Most of the times, the price of the bundle is lower than the sum of its components if purchased separately. The problem is that marketplaces like Amazon and e-bay will not send individual item information, so Shipstation needs to have individual prices to transfer this information to accounting software.
If we assign individual prices to each standalone o variant product, remember that the price of the bundle might be lower (or higher) than the sum of its components so,
Price of Bundle A = $100
Regular price of Product B = $30
Regular Price of Product C= $55
Bundle A consist of (2) Product B + (1) Product C
If we calculate the price of the bundle based on the price of its individual components, the price of the bundle will be: 2 X $30 + 1 X $55 = $115
So the price of the bundle will be incorrect. For that reason there should be a way to overwrite the price of each individual item. Ideally the system should allow us to choose form different options:
a) Estipulate a new overwrite price for each product on the bundle.
Ie: When creating the bundle, next to the each SKU, besides quantity we must be able to determine individual prices for each SKU in the bundle as follows:
Price for Product B in this bundle = $25 (Original price $30)
Price for Product C in this bundle = $ 50 (Original Price $55)
Order to be transferred to accounting software:
(2) Product B @ $25 each = $50
(1) Product B @ $50 each= $ 50
Total Order = $100
b) Automatically calculate a discount based on the price of the Bundle transferred form the marketplace and applying a calculated discount to the price stored in Shipstation for each individual product on the bundle.
For example :
Price of Bundle A sent from marketplace= $100
Price of Individual Items calculated with the information stored on Sipstation for each SKU = $115
Regular price of Product B = $30 stored on Shipstation for standalone product
Regular Price of Product C= $55 stored on Shipstation for standalone product
Difference = $15 which is a 13.043%
Information to be transferred to accounting software:
(2) Product B @ $30/each - 13.043% = each@ $26.087 x 2 = $ 52.174
(1) product B @ $55/each - 13.043% = $ 47.826
Total Order = $100
