It is a legal requirement that EORI numbers are used on shipping goods from the UK to EU and Rest of the World. This field has been implemented granted, but still requires manual intervention to apply the EORI to each order, not an easy task when shipping 1000's of parcels a week off shore. Can this not be automated by rule, that when shipping to EU, the EU EORI number is selected, and when shipping outside of the EU (Rest of World) the UK EORI is used?

I expect this may get removed...we moved to Linnworks as they had a huge range of shipping integrations. are more UK focused and are a better central processing hub for inventory and warehousing. It's not prefect but we're shipping a lot quicker and more accurately than SS. No more missed customs details and duplicating of inventory data across systems. Much more expensive but saves us a person in admin I reckon.

ShipStation recently added the ability to add your Tax ID numbers to your shipment customs declarations via Automation Rule. When creating your automation rule, choose the "Set Tax Identifiers" option, then select which Tax ID numbers you wish to add to the orders that meet your rule criteria. This is a multi-select option, so you can add as many Tax IDs as you need to the shipment customs declarations.

Has there been any progress on this?  We are desperate to be able to map the recipient tax identifier so we are not having to type it into every shipment?

 

We have done the automation rule to put our details on but it is taking a lot of extra time to manually add to the recipient and it is occasionally being missed leading to parcels being returned from customs

 

Thanks

@SuperMgr-Sarah thanks for the update, I will test this out this looks like a good addition.

Has there been any development to enable us to map the customer tax identifier (EORI) from our system (Netsuite) to Shipstation?  Currently we are having to add it manually to every non UK shipment which is a big hindrance to the business and also leaves room for it being missed and therefore not going through customs.

 

Many thanks
