How is the Age of an order calculated?

ShipStation's Age column comes in handy when sorting Awaiting Shipment orders for fulfillment. You can sort by ascending order to display the newest orders first or descending value to view the oldest orders first

Calculate Order Age in ShipStation

ShipStation calculates order age the same way for orders in both the Awaiting Shipment and Shipped status:

  • Order age for Awaiting Shipment status = Current Date/Time minus the Order Date/Time

  • Order age for Shipped status = Current Date/Time minus the Order Date/Time
