Wayfair Client ID and Client Secret.
To get these, you'll create a New Application for ShipStation within Wayfair, which will generate a fresh ID and Secret.
Order Import Requirements:
Must include a Ship To address.
All orders must be in accept status before they can import into ShipStation.
To complete the connection, you'll need two browser windows open: one for ShipStation and one for Wayfair.
To connect your Wayfair store to ShipStation:
Select the Wayfair tile. This will open the connection popup in ShipStation. To proceed further, you will need information from your Wayfair account.
Open a new browser tab, then log in to your Wayfair account portal with your Wayfair username and password.
Go to the Applications tab in the side menu then click + New Application. After you click this button you’ll see a Create Application popup.
Enter a Name and Description for the new application into the Create Application popup. These can be anything, but calling it ShipStation will help to identify its purpose and use.
Toggle the selection from Sandbox over to Production, then click Save. This will open the Client Secret popup.
Copy your Client ID and Client Secret from the Client Secret popup in Wayfair.
Client Secret IDs are inaccessible once the popup closes.
Do not close the popup until you have taken a screenshot or copied the Client ID and Secret to a separate document where you can refer to them later.
Return to your open browser tab with the open connection popup in ShipStation.
Copy and paste your Wayfair Client Id and Client Secret into the corresponding fields in the popup. Then click Connect.
After you've completed the connection steps, your store will be connected to ShipStation. You'll be taken to the store's Settings page to adjust the store-specific settings like branding, notification preferences, and product handling.
You must manually process cancellation requests in Wayfair’s vendor portal. (Log in to Wayfair for access.) The line items for the order in ShipStation will never change, but your customer can request that you cancel an item.
Doublecheck that your order data is correct before importing as your Order data cannot change once the order imports into ShipStation. After the initial order import, ShipStation will not receive any subsequent updates.
