Version 24.1.8910


You can use the ShipStation connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from ShipStation and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from ShipStation, you first must establish a connection to ShipStation. Follow these steps to connect ShipStation to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the ShipStation row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • API Key - Enter the API key for your ShipStation account.

    • API Secret - Enter the API secret key for your ShipStation account.

    Note: To obtain your API key and API secret:

    1. Log in to ShipStation and click the Settings icon in the upper right of the page.

    2. Select Account > API Settings from the menu in the left pane. On the API Settings page, locate and copy your API key and API secret.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
