ShipStation Classic Integration

This was built by topShelf developers to allow orders to flow from Warehouse Manager (Order Source) to ShipStation (Order Destination).

Here are the main features of the "Classic" integration:

  • Allows mapping the Custom1, Custom2, and Custom3 fields from Warehouse Manager.
  • Shipment information can be pulled from ShipStation to Warehouse Manager.

 

ShipStation Pick Pack Integration

In this integration, order information is 'pulled' from ShipStation into Warehouse Manager. Be sure to generate your ShipStation API access keys, if you've never generated them before.

Here are the main features of the "Pick Pack" integration:

  • Orders originate in ShipStation and are then populated into Warehouse Manager.
  • Utilizes the 'Custom Field #3' field in ShipStation to indicate the status of the order.
  • Multi Warehouse compatibility. If an order in ShipStation is set to be fulfilled from a specific 'Warehouse location,' that information passes into Warehouse Manager
  • For more information on how this integration works, please check out this topShelf video.
