Houzz Packing Slips
When you connect your Houzz store to ShipStation, ShipStation will create two custom packing slip templates (one 4" x 6", one 8.5" x 11") to be used for your Houzz shipments.
When updating a Houzz order as shipped, Houzz requires both a carrier and shipping service to be submitted. Since the Mark as Complete action only allows you to set the carrier and not service, ShipStation can only submit the tracking number with a carrier / service set as 'Others'.
ShipStation cannot send emails for Houzz orders. All customer notifications will be handled by Houzz.
