Does ShipStation have any hotkeys or keyboard shortcuts?

ShipStation has many key commands available to help you navigate the Orders tab more efficiently, as well as dozens of configurable preset options for applying shipping settings.

Keep in mind that all of these hotkeys are also available as Barcode Scan Actions. For steps on how to print out these actions as barcodes, head over to this support article!

(Many of these presets and hotkeys will display an indicator when they're triggered. If you wish to disable this feature, you can follow the steps here.)
