In raw-shipped orders, the data reported only shows for those with labels created, using integrated carriers. For some businesses, shipments are also hand-delivered/picked up. This data is then not present. In raw-orders, the information produced for an order is not carrier dependent, so the hand-delivered orders are there, but the data for a multi-sku order will repeat the total order #/taxes across each sku, providing misrepresented information. For a business reporting, a financial report is needed that shows - orders (revenue), taxes paid, carrier costs (hand delivered would be 'other'), sortable by country/state(province), date. Thus, revenue vs expenses would be shown. This must be a concern for all shipstation users if there is data missing in a report, so a modification to the method for producing the raw-shipped would be extremely useful. It would provide increased confidence that the reports produced by shipstation would be useable by accountants.
