AMEN - I been bringing this up prior as well!
I agree, it is time consuming to check for the cheapest rate. I think if we can set a rule for the weight and size of the package - and that the customer hasn't requested a specific service, that Shipstation should be able to check between two chosen services - like USPS Priority or UPS Sure Post - for the best rate.
How about an automation option using Rate. With this allowed then you can have an automation of if its more than X amount, ship this way. Or Less and or equal to, ship this way.
@Moderator-Davis is there any progress report available for this work? At one point we were informed that this would be released in March of 2022.
Hey there @KMM,
No updates are available at this time. Should any news arise, i'll post here to keep us all on the same page. 🙂
Hi, I've developed a tool to automatically select the cheapest carrier and package type in ShipStation. You can take a look at how it works in this loom video:
If you'd like to try it for yourself, you can go to https://v2.shippingplus.co/ to register.
I love the list idea of seeing
Service A _____ $__.__
Service B _____ $__.__
Service C _____ $__.__
And being able to choose one, rather than toggling between the different options.
