i would like shipstation to be able to choose the cheapest shipping method for each order that comes in. currently, i use UPS & USPS and i have to manually select between the 2 services to see which one is cheaper. this process is very time consuming and needs to be done on an order by order basis. i would like shipstation to automatically upload the cheapest shipping method so i can print all the labels at once.

We're a huge fan of a new company called String that's fully automating the carrier selection process in ShipStation to select the lowest cost carrier/service. Seriously solving major headaches for us.  Check them out:

First-timer actually automates the carrier rate shopping process for a fraction of the price as meetstring. I highly recommend checking them out if you're looking to save more $$$ on your shipping

@Manager-ErinMaybe it shouldn't take 3+ years to help your users save money. I see you have this feature for the $399 a month customers but not for us peons.

If it hasn’t been mentioned yet this is possible through rule automation as we have it in place. The catch is we had to upgrade to Enterprise account in order to access the features but the savings in freight has well outweighed the monthly cost. Hope this helps.
