We are in the early stages of an integration with the Amazon Buy Shipping API! However, there are some limitations/restrictions for using this service in ShipStation.
At this time, the Amazon Buy Shipping API is only available for sellers using the “MFN Prime” service offered by Amazon. “MFN Prime” refers to orders that are listed as “Prime” on Amazon, but shipped directly by a seller. Historically, only orders that were fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) were eligible for “Prime” status. Orders not listed as “Prime” are not eligible for the Amazon Buy Shipping API in ShipStation.
If you would like to learn more about this service, and if you’re eligible to have the Amazon Buy Shipping API enabled on your ShipStation account, please contact your Account Manager or email Support@ShipStation.com

Amazon has recently added more protections for sellers if the shipping is purchased through them. We don't offer same day shipping or MFN Prime, but we could certainly benefit from the ability to purchase Amazon Shipping. And like Cynthia McCollum said, this would greatly improve our cash flow, since our largest expense is shipping.
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.
