Field Replacements in Custom Templates

A reference article that explains field replacements and lists all available field replacements available for custom templates.

Field Replacements are a way to add content dynamically to your email or packing slip templates. Field Replacements will pull store specific, order specific, shipment specific, and recipient specific information into either the email or packing slip ShipStation creates. 

Field Replacements are indicated by the square brackets [ ] surrounding the text in your email or packing slip editors.

To add a field replacement to a template, place your cursor where you wish the content to go and either click the field replacement button in the list or type the field replacement text into the editor exactly as it appears in the list (including the square brackets, capitals, and spaces).

To delete an existing field replacement from the template, highlight it and press Delete.

See the tables below for a list of all available field replacements for email and packing slip templates, along with a description of the information each field replacement adds to your template.
