Add all the different shipper details you want to get printed on your different packing slips & save them.
2. Now tab to Shipper Store Mapping inside ShipStation Setup menu and
Map the Shipper details you created in step 2 to your ShipStation Stores.
Once you do that the integration will generate a packing slip for the mapped store with Shipper details you have mapped the store with.
3. Label & Tracking Details Settings – Here you can choose on which custom field, you want to display the PDF URL of Labels, and Packing Slips on Shipstation.
It will help you in printing as you will get the labels URLs in your email in different links, by which you can choose you whether you want to print both slips from the same printer or different printers.
