Summarizes the available barcode scanning features in ShipStation and links to the related articles.
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 barcode scanning is currently limited to using the Scan to Print and the Scan to Verify & Print feature. 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 barcode functionality is only available when using the Scan to Print/Verify features. Check back soon for more Scan to View options!
Optimize your scan-based workflow to create labels in record speed with zero mouse clicks.
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.
Navigation barcode functions are not yet available in ShipStation V3. Other scan actions can be used in the Scan to Print/Verify workflows. Check back soon for expanded barcode scanning updates!
