How do I connect my Magento 2 store to ShipStation?

To connect your Magento 2 store to ShipStation, please follow the directions below.

First, make sure you're logged into your ShipStation account.

Head to your Account Settings (the gear icon in the upper right).

Next, select Selling Channels and then Store Setup from the sidebar on the left.

Then, click on the Connect a Store or Marketplace button and select Magento

Use the drop down menu to select Version 2.

Download the module and extract the contents to your Magento Folder. Then, login to your Magento Admin as the Administrator User. 

Click System on the left, then Cache Management under Tools

Select Flush Magento Cache

Click System, and choose Web Setup Wizard from the left navigation panel. 

Select Component Manager and continue with Manage your components. 

Go to the Auctane_API module from Listing and select the Enable option from the Actions column. Click Next. We recommend making a backup of exsiting Code, Media and Database files. Click Enable.


In your Magento Admin site, go to the System > All Users to create a new admin user for ShipStation. This step is optional, but recommended so that your new integration keeps working even if you change your primary admin password. 

Click Add User and fill out all of the required fields. 

Enter your Store URL, new Administrator Username and Password into the corresponding fields in ShipStation. 

NOTE: The Store URL can be found in Stores > Configuration > General > Web > Base URLs (or Base URLs (Secure) for http configuration)

If you have Multiple Stores on your Magento 2 account, each one can be connected seperately to your ShipStation account. You will need to set the Store View in Magento (near the top-left corner of Web page) to the store you're reviewing before looking at the Store URL value. Then, simply use the store's unique URL along with the Username and Password from the earlier steps. Repeat this process for all of your stores.
