So, just to help us better understand, would this idea work best for you if it automatically printed whenever an order came in? So, say, an order comes in on Sunday at 4:00 a.m., it should print then. Or would it be better if whenever you log in to ShipStation and have it active that you would prefer to have the packing slips printed out then?
Any updates? This would be a time saver for us. Currently we have set up Tags to keep track of what has been printed and what hasn't. But while that works for us, it is still time consuming to do. This would speed that process up for us and save some time. You haven't responded in almost two years to this request. As of this posting it has 301 votes. Can you give us an update?
An automation rule would be great, because then I could determine which orders get printed and when. If I also had the ability to also choose the printer through the automation rule that would be even better. Then I could print international orders to one printer and domestic to another.
For example, (If "International order" print to Canon 1.) (If "Domestic order" print to Canon 2) and run these rules for all orders when they are imported.
If I can't have any of that, just print them to my default packing list printer when they come in. It would save lots of time.
This is a great idea! I really like the automation rule idea. We would use this. That way when we show up at work in the morning, our orders from overnight would already be sitting on the printer and every time a new order was imported, it would be printed. I'm out of votes or I would give this idea 3.

We need this as well.

Thanks for bringing this up! We’ve reviewed your idea and the overall user feedback and are closing your idea to give your votes back since there hasn’t been any activity here in awhile. This allows everyone to use their votes on other ideas. The input you gave is still on our radar and your insights are greatly appreciated.
Still need this.
Because of the huge number of INR's this Christmas season we are going to have to start looking at other shipping providers that can offer this. We ship about 300 orders per day and using Amazon's interface is not practical. We love Shipstation and have been a customer for almost 6 years. But this is a huge problem for us and we need a resolution.
It would also be useful, because we could contact the customer and notify them of the delay and that we are working to get it corrected.
The product team will review your request and you’ll hear from us once we have made a decision.
This is a great idea! We use DHL for all international orders and we get free labels from them. We are unable to use those labels, since we use USPS for domestic orders.
This is an issue for us as well. A packing slip can be several pages long and it is easy to miscount the quantity that needs to be shipped.
I agree. We have the same issue with this.
This would be very useful and money saving. UPS and Fedex provide labels at no charge, but they frown on ordering more than the amount of orders you are shipping. If I could print FedEx to one printer USPS to another and DHL to yet a third, I could save some money on labels.
Another benefit of this would be the ability to print packing slips to different printers. Currently when we print, we have to manually sort all of the packing slips by warehouse location, so that they can be pulled by different employees. Whit this option we could print to each printer based on SKU or any other selectable field.
We also use the tag function for this, but an automated version would be fantastic. If you forget to mark the orders as printed, then you can't print again until you have shipped everything.
Scan to Verify and Print is now AVAILABLE in the new version of ShipStation, and also now supports product identification by UPC, SKU, or both values.
We will mark this feature complete once Scan to Verify is a standalone mode from Print.
Additional features, settings are also in the works. Thank you all for your continued patience.
Can you tell us what the issue is with getting this implemented? 712 Votes and counting as of this post.
Our workflow would be:
1. Scan the Barcode on the packing slip
2. Scan the UPC of each product that was pulled.
3. If correct; print the shipping label.
4. If incorrect; pull correct product, scan it's UPC code, then print the label.
This topic has more votes that any other idea. I guess "voting" for an idea really means nothing. You haven't even responded to the request since 6/13/2017. This is very disappointing from a software company that many of us rely on. I'm sure many of us would be willing to pay extra for this capability. I know I would. Please update us!
Groovepacker no longer works reliably with ShipStation. SKUVault is insanely priced. This is something that we really need. It would be nice to hear from Shipstation on this. It seems like such a simple addition. you already have the ability to read the scanner. We can upload all of our SKU's and barcodes. We just need you to verify that we have the correct item going in the package. I would gladly pay more for this ability.
As our number of orders per day grows this becomes more critical to our business. Does anyone know of a third party that integrates with ShipStation that can provide this capability?
Great idea paulstanger! I agree that the barcode shouldn't have to be a UPC code. While most of our products do have UPC, occasionally there is a product that doesn't. If you could assign multiple fields to compare against that would make this usable for so many other users. If Shipstation would let me choose the UPC field, SKU field, or a custom field. I could use this for all of my products whether or not it had a UPC.
Thanks for leaving your thoughts, everyone! This is definitely still on our radar; for now, please leave your votes and comments to help keep this discussion active.
This is very important to us as well. We ship over 60,000 packages per year. 90% of those orders use the same packaging. The envelope weighs .9 oz and our products have varying weights from .3 oz to 1.2 oz. Since we have to enter whole numbers, we can easily overpay when we ship multiple items.So we weigh every package. If the software would add the package weight and product weight correctly, we would not need to verify the weight of every package and save a lot of time and money.
Hi! ShipStation is still in the process of understanding the best way to address multiple currencies within a single ShipStation account. We greatly thank you for your patience as we work towards supporting this much-desired feature.
