If you have a barcode scanner and use it prominently in your workflow, ShipStation has a range of actions that can be done with barcodes.
ShipStation V3 is currently limited to using the Scan to Print and Scan to Verify barcode scanning features. We are currently building more barcode scanning functions in ShipStation V3. Check back for updates soon!
Barcode actions include:
Scan to View
Scan a packing slip barcode with ShipStation special scan to view barcode and ShipStation will immediately display the order details.
Currently, Scan to View barcodes are not available in ShipStation V3. We are working on adding this functionality soon!
Optimize your scan-based workflow to create labels in record speed with zero mouse clicks.
Scan to Print in ShipStation V3 works the same as it does in ShipStation Classic. We are currently working on V3 Scan to Print improvements.
Scan to Verify & Print (NEW!)
Scan to Verify allows you to scan your product UPC barcodes as you pack, to ensure each shipment includes all of the correct items before you send it to your customer. Then, print each label directly from the Scan to Verify screen.
Navigation and other scan actions
Use ShipStation barcode scan actions in place of hotkeys to navigate the ShipStation interface and perform certain actions that would normally require a keyboard and mouse.
These barcode functions are not yet available in ShipStation V3. We are currently working to add them. Check back soon!
