ShipStation tips

  • ShipStation doesn’t allow partial quantities (example, 2.5 units) in order line items. 

When you create orders in QuickBooks that you want to ship through ShipStation, ensure that you use whole numbers.

  • The system ignores any mismatches in shipping costs between QuickBooks Commerce and ShipStation. Ensure that you fulfill shipping costs through QuickBooks Commerce.
  • You’ll have to manually handle any number mismatches in your accounting app.
  • ShipStation requires a valid country code for shipping and billing addresses. The connection attempts to map country names to country codes, but if we can’t find a valid mapping, we’ll set the country as you have it in QuickBooks Commerce.
