Here are some things you should keep in mind about ShipStation's integration with Stripe:
This integration is specific to Orders from Stripe, and will not import Payments made using Stripe's standard payment processor. See Stripe's Order Guide for details on setting up Stripe for orders (you must be logged into Stripe to view the guide.)
Once an order is shipped or marked as shipped, ShipStation will send a shipment update to Stripe to update the order to the Fulfilled status. However, no specific shipment details (carrier, service, or tracking number) will be included. Shipment details will be included for any emails ShipStation sends to your Stripe customers.
