What's New in ShipStation?

 

We want to keep you up to date as we release new features and update ShipStation's functionality. This release information focuses on what's new and what's changed in ShipStation's new layout. To review a summary of how the new layout differs from ShipStation Legacy, please review the Moving from ShipStation Legacy to the New Layout help article.

Updated Functionality

We've enhanced several features you may already be using in ShipStation. These enhancements range from simple interface design (as with the Rate Calculator) to new processes to accomplish old tasks (as with splitting and combining orders).

In the Store Settings tabs, the Notification tab has been renamed to Emails to more accurately state what settings are found here and to avoid confusion with the Branding tab when the viewport width condenses the setting text.
