Here are some common issues, potential causes, and troubleshooting tips.
How to troubleshoot or resolve
First Class Mail International (FCMI) shipments' tracking numbers not sent to marketplace or customers.
The tracking number provided for FCMI shipments is not always fully trackable and will often not provide any additional tracking details beyond the shipment leaving the country. Since these tracking numbers do not always provide full delivery information, ShipStation considers them to be "non-trackable" and will not include them in notifications by default.
To include FCMI tracking numbers in notifications, go to
Despite the wording of the setting, it applies to both marketplace and customer notifications.
How do I update my Endicia account's password in ShipStation?
If you've changed your Endicia account password, you'll need to reset your passphrase in ShipStation as well.
This will reset the passphrase ShipStation uses to access your Endicia account. You should now be able to create labels using Endicia again!
