Seller Shipping Configuration using our SHIPSTATION for Realtime USPS rates (You do not need your own shipstation for this)
(For Marketplace Shipping - setting your own rates, see this article)
Warning*: Currently this Applet is being renovated - currently it works fine, but it throws too many options from USPS to the end customer, who has the option to order $0.50 shipping as a letter. This does not break sales - but be prepared for this if you choose to use our Shipstation Sync. The renovated on this software (we do not control this and are waiting to hear back from our software provider on this issue) is expected to be completed around mid May.*
The seller can configuration ShipStation from the seller panel.
Go to multi vendor marketplace seller panel > configuration > shipping configuration> enable the shipping:

Clicking on ‘Set As Default‘ will give you the following dialogue box:
Set Default Shipping Method For Products
For all products (old and new)
Only for new products
For products that don’t have any shipping method on
If not this, the seller can set the shipping method on individual products while adding/editing them.
So, go to Multi-vendor marketplace seller panel > Products >Product Listing > Add/Edit the Product:
