I could not find this feature or any text on this topic. Is this a planned feature for the future? I have a homemade app with my current ecommerce system and use the label printing function a lot. I was hoping this would be included at the initial release.
I use a query to export from my osC database and import it into WorldShip and Stamps.(tld). But my orders all batch. I weekly, not order by order. I’d love to see a solid integration with WorldShip but it isn’t necessary. Hey, an order export by status would be pretty sweet. Squirt the output file right into worldship. Maybe make a configurable order export feature for other shippers. Something to do that’s easier than live connection.
I’ve basically copied and pasted mine out for quite some time but have considered outsourcing custom sticker label invoice paper that basically has a sticker label cutout in the bottom corner or something. Haven’t played around with Magento enough, but if there is customization options for the invoice, than I can get this to work.
It’d be interesting to somehow process a batch label printout option as well that is compatible with certain SKU’s from Avery, etc.
I would love to see this featuer being added to Magento, especially Fedex. We’re currently using Oscommerce with Fedex shipping label printing contribution added. It is a life safer for us. With just a few clicks the label is printed.
We also use Endicia for USPS shipping labels. I find it is quite easy to just copy/paste the shipping address from invoice to Endicia.
I am interested in Endicia support if you are still working on it. I can’t believe we haven’t seen any shipping solutions yet, as it is a gapping whole in the workflow. I don’t expect Magento to build this functionality into the core because there are just too many options.
this is really important feature… we ship a lot of small orders per day, and if we have to copy and paste out every shipping label, it’s really going to add a lot of time. please consider making this a priority.
we currently use oscommerce (and hate it), but the one feature we like is a hack that allows us to print out USPS Shipping labels directly from the USPS web site by pre-populating all the fields. saves us tons of time.
i’m seriously considering switching to magento, but this feature may hold me back.
We also use a combined shipping / invoice / returns label with two sticky labels at the top. This saves so much on the order processing so that the orders can be processed in a batch into a single pdf file along with a picking list and emailed to the mailing house for printing onto the labels. I tried to see how the current system in Magento would work but it seemed that it would take 10 times as long. So this is definitely on my list.
