Our power users really appreciate ShipStation's advanced time-saving features and customization options. We've got tons of them, so if you're looking for some guidance, consider these features:
- Customize & Send Shipment Notification Emails
We can send shipment notification emails to your customers the moment a shipping label is created, as long as your selling channel allows it. Feel free to modify our default email template to meet your needs.
- Choose the Right Plan for Your Subscription
The free ShipStation trial provides access to all ShipStation features, so be sure to select a plan the meets your needs. You can change your plan at any time.
- Customize Packing Slips (Silver plans & above)
Our system produces packing slips which your shipping team can use to put the right products in the right boxes and your customer can use as a reference. Silver-level ShipStation plans can modify our default packing slip templates using our HTML editor. We even have sample HTML to help you get started.
- Create Your Own Keyboard Shortcuts
Easily navigate between orders and select multiple orders with our default keyboard shortcuts, and define custom keyboard shortcuts to apply shipping preferences to orders.
- Product Defaults
Set up product-specific shipping preferences for ShipStation to use when a single quantity of a single SKU is ordered and/or set product-specific values to supplement or override values imported from the marketplace (such as Warehouse Location, Item Image URL, Country of Origin, etc.).
- Service Mappings
ShipStation imports the customer's selected method from your store's checkout process, such as "Free Shipping", which you can then map to actual carrier and service combinations available within ShipStation. Once mapped, the desired carrier and service combinations will apply to orders as they import into ShipStation.
- Automation Rules
Set simple, yet powerful "If the order has this, then ShipStation should do that"-rules which apply actions to orders as they import into ShipStation.
- Inventory Management
Track and manage your stock levels within the ShipStation application. We can reserve available inventory to your priority orders first, and of course, deduct stock as you ship orders. If you think you're a good fit, check out our setup instructions.
If the features above don't fully address your business challenges, search our knowledge base, or reach out to your ShipStation Account Manager. We'd love to hear about your business and then find ways that we can help speed it up!
