Hi there! Thanks so much for your feedback on how we can improve ShipStation for your business. We look here to learn about common obstacles for our users so we can work on solutions.
After reading many of the responses, it appears that one of the underlying needs described was to print labels on a 4×6 thermal printer and packing slips on an 8.5×11 printer, which you can now accomplish in ShipStation. http://feedback.shipstation.com/forums/126593-request-a-new-shipstation-feature/suggestions/4446885-print-thermal-shipping-labels-in-conjunction-with
Since you’re asking for the ability to have one button for this function, we’ll leave this request open. Can you give us more detail about about your current workflow and what’s the hardest part not having a button that prints both labels/packing slips simultaneously vs two buttons?
Also, if I ship just one order at a time, the order grays out or disappears from view in the order details pane, and it can get pretty complicated to print out the packing slip.
Well we print the packing slips on the 8.5x11 and the shipping labels on the 4x6, but we have to remember to print the slips and labels separately. If the shipper forgets to push the button, then we have a bunch of labels or packing slips without their counterpart. Then we have to go back and search for it all. That can turn out to be a real pain.
Yes you are correct, but it is still worth it. We deal in low-priced items in large quantities, so price matters alot.
I was able to get LP-2844 labels ( I ordered a batch of 4000 ) from a seller on ebay. I checked on other sites, they were around the same price after factoring in shipping.
There is a company that makes labels and plain sheets on the same page, but after shipping costs, it is not worth it.
Yes exactly. That is what I want and why I put in my vote. The problem is that sometimes we have to print one order and then the packing slip is a bit cumbersome to print.
By the way, we get our thermal labels from ebay and they cost .008, so you may be a bit overpaying. However, regular paper at the local walmart cost .005 per sheet, so the cost adds up pretty quickly.
The batch method does work for batches. Also a bit cumbersome.
