To set up your WooCommerce store, you'll just need to first install the free ShipStation WooCommerce Extension . WooCommerce has a thorough Installation Guide, however we have also put together a setup guide below. Please refer to the installation guide for more information.
Version Requirements for the WooCommerce – ShipStation plugin:
Word Press: Version 4.0+
First, download the plugin to your computer.
Next, in your WordPress admin dashboard, go to Plugins, and click on Add New.
Here, click on the Upload link and select the plugin zip file from your local computer, then click Install Now. Once installation is complete, click Activate Plugin.
Now navigate to WooCommerce menu within WordPress, then select Settings.
Click the Integration tab to get to your ShipStation Settings. If you have any other WooCommerce integrations installed, you may also need to go into the ShipStation specific settings. Here, copy your Authorization Key to later input into ShipStation:
You can select any custom statuses you may have that you’d like to export to ShipStation, and choose the Status you’d like the orders to go in after they have been shipped in ShipStation.
Now that you have configured your settings for the ShipStation app, login to ShipStation, and add a new WooCommerce store. In ShipStation, go to your Account Settings (the wrench icon in the upper right).
Next, select Selling Channels and then Store Setup from the sidebar on the left.
Click Connect a Store or Marketplace.
Click Locate the WooCommerce logo on the list and select it.
Copy and paste the Authorization Key from WooCommerce into ShipStation, and enter in your store's URL.
You can also map any statuses that you use for your WooCommerce store at this point. We automatically populate these fields with the standard WooCommerce statuses, and the most common way they are mapped in ShipStation, but if you use any custom statuses you will need to add them.
Click Connect and that’s it! You'll be taken to finish up your specific store settings to be used within ShipStation: Store information and logo, communications, how your products are handled in ShipStation, and service mappings.
