Well, I can tell you that I just got off the phone with USPS here in Spring /The Woodlands Texas, and they have about had it with me too. The do pickup for us and we have 30-50 packages a day now and they are not scanning them anymore. They said that we need to have a sheet. So, what is the issue. EVERYONE but Shopify offers this. EVERYONE..I mean..even the dippy sites...so come on guys...it takes no effort to produce a report on labels
There isn't a way to create a manual end of day USPS Scan Form.
We are going back to using ShipStation. We used them for many years but stopped when we started using Shopify as we thought Shopify would have all the functionality that we needed. We also thought that Shopify's shipping rates would be better than using ShipStation. Now ShipStation has a great deal with UPS and they are passing those rates back to their customers so their rates for USPS and UPS are now just as good, if not better than Shopify's.
They correct addresses for you much better than Shopify does (using Google Maps to catch address issues is pretty much worthless). ShipStation uses the USPS API to make corrections, which is critical if you are also selling on Amazon, as Amazon can't seem to catch incorrect addresses to save its life. We also get better reports on our shipping costs. ShipStation's rates are also way better than Etsy's so once we figure out how to pull all orders from everywhere into ShipStation to process we will be all set. For a Scan Sheet and everything else.
I'm guessing Shopify makes money on every App they promote and work with, but they will be losing our shipping revenue after this which is not insignificant, but they don't seem to care.
Please please add this feature. Our shop is https://cat-and-raven-designs.myshopify.com/ (our normal URL is just http://www.catandravendesigns.com ). For anyone trying to run a business shipping more than a handful of packages at a time, this feature is ESSENTIAL for our ability to work with our local post office. As someone who converted over from Etsy (who has the ability to print out a scan sheet by the way), it feels woefully inadequate and out of touch with your customer base that Shopify doesn't offer this built in. I don't want to have to use a paid app to get Shopify's shipping to work properly so please for the love of all that is, don't link me another paid app to fix a problem with base level Shopify. I want to work with Shopify, not a third party.
And as half the apps in the Shopify store don't work as promised anyway, it becomes a game of trial and and you end up paying for stuff that doesn't work, or worse breaking your site while you try it out.
Shopify spends way too much time passing the app development to third parties that they don't even vet properly, rather than providing tools itself that actually benefit its users.
