New Features 🎉

Every year, we add key new features to empower retailers to achieve great things. We’re constantly searching for ways to optimise our app and we start with the eedback from our customers. In 2021, Starshipit added these new features:

  • Automatically create a package(s) by importing its item weight & dimension from your store.
  • Use rules to automatically set the HS code & country of manufacture.
  • Rules to set Commercial invoice declaration as part of the free trade agreement between the United Kingdom and Europe.
  • Adding Import One-Stop Shop (IOSS) numbers in the tax settings. This is to support the VAT22 legislation when sending orders to customers in Europe.
  • Supporting the ability to upload additional documents with DHL Express for example prescriptions, fabric certificates, material data sheets etc.
  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) support has been added to provide an additional layer of security when logging into your account.
  • Plain labels have been updated to display item SKUs, and support improved formatting for both sender and receiver addresses on the 100x150mm label.
  • Customers using a CSV file to import orders can now automatically import orders via the print app, select “file monitor” as an option. When enabled, this feature is set to watch for the new order file additions in the folder/directory and do an auto-order import.
  • Reports can now be downloaded using XLSX files. When generating a report you can now either download it as a CSV or an XLSX file. You may wish to download a report as an XLSX file if you find the CSV files have broken formatting for long numbers. The XLSX file format gets around this issue.
