How do I skip the warnings I get while I'm creating a shipping label?

It's easy to skip warnings during the label creation process-- just ignore them!

In ShipStation, warnings don't stop you from creating shipping labels. We just want to bring something to your attention which might influence your shipping decision.

If you're unable to proceed, that means you're facing an error, rather than a warning. An error blocks you from creating a shipping label. Errors require you to make some kind of change before you can successfully create your shipping label.

In case you're interested, the list of warnings includes (but isn't limited to) the following:

  • This order has been Cancelled. Are you sure you want to process it?
  • This order is currently On Hold. Are you sure you want to process it?
  • This is a Merchant Fulfilled Amazon Prime Order. Labels must be created directly through Amazon. Amazon will not be able to accept tracking information from ShipStation.
