    This is now a huge competitor to USPS flat rate. We were wanting to use ShipStation again, but this was not an option... UPS site is not the best for printing the labels.

    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.

    UPS Worldship actually saves their doc label configuration as an XML file in the Worldship folder (or network share if you have it set up in a host/client config). This XML file contains all the field names and coordinates for the information to print on the doc label. It seems like it would not be much work to build something to read this file and set up the settings in ShipStation to print the same label.
    Seeing as ShipStation already integrates with stamps.com (which already provides printing for the 8 x 4.25 label format with a doc label) that should be able to be taken care of as well?
    It seems like a huge oversight that ShipStation does not support this feature.

    Admin,

    Our doc labels include: (UPS) Tracking number, ship method, date, package number and the total packages in the shipment, up to 4 reference numbers (one is the order number), declared value, any and all fees associated with the package each with their own line item, cod amount, indicator flags for large package and dangerous goods, box weight (dimensional and actual), total shipment weight, and our rates for both published and negotiated shipping costs.

    (USPS) Tracking number, order number, date, cost, weight, mailing class, 1 reference number, and the customer's name.

    Of these the UPS one is the most useful. Both of these labels get placed on an internal copy of the invoice which we use to compare our weekly billing statements with UPS to make sure they did not do anything funny and over charge us or add some correction fee. Additionally we use them as a quick reference if we ever have to file a claim, or look up a tracking number for an order because it stays with the paperwork. It is basically an offline copy that we use often for reference. Without these labels we would have to hand write most of this information on the orders for our records. If you have an email I can send you pictures of example labels and their doc tabs if you would like.

    We need this as well for our internal records. I was amazed shipstation did not support it when every other piece of software we use does (even stamps.com directly will let us print doc labels). Going back to 4x6 labels in the printer is not an option for us because we use other smaller carriers that shipstation does not support, all of which use the doc label as well.
