Google Stores

Import your Google Store orders into ShipStation by connecting your Google Merchant Center account.

Any US-based ShipStation user with a Google Merchant Center account also has access to the Google Tracking Signals integration, which allows ShipStation to send shipment tracking data to Google from any of your connected stores. Google can use this data to estimate the best delivery times for future shipments, which you can then display to your Google Store customers.

This article is about the Google Store connection. For details on using Google Tracking Signals, review our Google Tracking Signals help article.
