Create Filters for NetSuite

When you set up NetSuite, you can create filters by the Class, Location, and/or Department value from inside of NetSuite. Separate multiple entries using commas and make sure the entries exactly match what is displayed in NetSuite.

For example: To only ship from the 01:San Francisco and 02:Boston Location on NetSuite, enter the value “01: San Francisco, 02:Boston” into the Location text field in the connection window in ShipStation.

PickPackShip Flows: Shipment Notifications will send Order Status, Tracking, Carrier and Service Level, Shipment Cost, and Item Details back into NetSuite, and update the IFR that was imported into ShipStation to a Shipped status.
