Bandcamp Troubleshooting Tips

Here are some common issues experienced by users, potential causes, and available troubleshooting tips.

Issue

How to troubleshoot or resolve

Why is the Order Date in ShipStation different than the Order Date in Bandcamp?

This usually occurs because the Bandcamp server is using a different timezone than the timezone set in the store's settings in ShipStation, which causes the Order Date to be thrown off when converting the timestamp based on time zone. Update the store's settings so that the store is using the same timezone as the server your Bandcamp store is hosted on.

Why are certain orders placed late in the day not importing into ShipStation?

Similar to the issue above, this typically occurs because the Bandcamp server is using a different timezone than the timezone set in the store's settings in ShipStation, which causes our import process to inadvertently skip ahead. Update the store's settings so that the store is using the same timezone as the server your Bandcamp store is hosted on.
