In some cases, ShipStation users need to print different packing slips for their orders coming in from different stores. So to simplify that we have a feature where you can add multiple Shipper Details that will get printed on the packing slips for the orders that belongs to a certain store.
In order to print different packing slips for different stores, you will need to perform the below steps-
1. Click on Shipper Details Tab inside ShipStation Setup
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 the 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.
Very helpful for both single and bulk orders.
Label Shipment Cost – You can select on which field you want to show the label shipment cost.
