In E-Commerce, its not always a certain to have the correct weight of a product at the time the product is created, in Shopify, say.
We've been searching for a way to get correct weights into products after they've already made it to SS.
We can apply weight to a SKU in the products section, then apply to open orders but that feature does not work 100% of the time. Additionally, those product weights wont apply to multiple item orders total weight.
This makes it almost impossible to automate shipping and requires orders to be weighed manually. This makes large scale shipping much harder and slower. Because of this feature alone, companies that don't have weights upon creation will have to reluctantly move away from Shipstation as they scale.
I hope this insight into why this feature is so important helps you guys.
