ShipStation makes it really easy to create an end of day SCAN form for your labels. (This article uses USPS as an example, but these steps will work for any carrier that requires a physical shipping manifest to be scanned.)
From the ShipStation Web App
Go to the Shipments tab.
Next, click the End of Day section on the sidebar.
The Open section will show by default, and it will display an Open Shipments count for the selected day.
If there are no open shipments for the selected date, you can click the calendar icon to select eligible USPS shipments with a future Ship Date. (Please note that USPS guidelines prevent you from creating SCAN forms for shipments with a Ship Date in the past.)
When you're ready to put any open Shipments on a SCAN form, click on the Close Shipments link corresponding to the USPS carrier.
A new window will appear where you can select (or deselect) the shipments for your SCAN form.
Furthermore, if you only want to close shipments for one of your Ship From Locations, click the all Ship From Locations drop-down at the top. From there, you'll be able to close only a particular Ship From Location's shipments.
Click Close Selected when you're ready.
Your forms will be created and you can print from this popup!
Reprint Closed SCAN forms
If you want to print (or reprint) SCAN forms that you previously created, click on the Closed section (under End of Day).
Change the Ship Date filter (or the Closed Date filter) as needed.
Once you do that, you can check boxes corresponding to any SCAN forms you want to print.
Click the green Print Selected button to the top right of the End of Day list.
From ShipStation Mobile
Using the ShipStation Mobile app, you'll be able to generate the barcode and have it scanned right from your phone screen. No need for toner, paper, a printer, or even a computer. You can even produce it in line at the post office!
If you've downloaded the ShipStation Mobile app, you can generate the form in just a few clicks!
Click on End of Day from the sidebar.
Select the carrier whose shipments you want to close out.
Select the Ship From Location you want to pull up.
The barcode that appears can be scanned by the carrier to pull up the shipments!
