All UltraCart orders are treated as Awaiting Shipment when imported. ShipStation is not able to detect if an UltraCart order is Shipped or Cancelled outside of ShipStation. If you ship or cancel an UltraCart order, you'll need to manually update the order in ShipStation.
ShipStation will only receive UltraCart orders which are not already marked as Imported in UltraCart. If an order is marked as Imported you can re-queue it by editing the order and selecting the Requeue for Pickup option.
