Selecting Hold for Pickup is something that is offered by eShipper but isn't available in ShipStation, and is extremely useful to us as many of our customers require this service.

Currently we have to go back to eShipper to ship these packages, we would much rather use ShipStation.

Looks like this can be an option:

Use Hold for Pickup

When shipping packages, use the Hold for PickUp option, and the recipients can collect the package at their local Post Office™.

Please integrate this feature into ShipStation with USPS as it would cut down on Fraud and Friendly Fraud. 

Thank you!

TelCan - sorry to hijack this conversation but how were you able to integrate eshipper with shipstation for your regular orders?  Did you have a developer connect via API?

We currently don't use eShipper for much apart from when we need to create a return shipment back from the US to Canada for merchandise returns etc as this is difficult to do otherwise since we're in Canada (UPS will assume sending from Canada on the website), and in these cases we use the old eShipper website interface still.  We were told there is a newer one but we haven't had the need to try it yet.  For the API that would be great, we don't have any information here.  In the end our UPS rep was able to get us even better rates than eShipper based on our volume.  We currently use the native ShipStation web app with our own accounts for the various carriers.

Cheers
