Configure product SKUs
Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in Shopify are identical to the SKUs loaded into the fulfillment provider's warehouse management system.
Export SKUs from Shopify
Export your SKUs from Shopify, so you can ensure they are entered correctly in PackageBee.
Gather Store Shipping Methods
As part of the third-party fulfillment setup process, the shipping methods offered in the eCommerce system must be mapped to the corresponding shipping code used by the fulfillment center.
Gather API credentials
To enable API access, you must gather your Shopify Admin credentials and Shop Name/Store Address.
Enable API access
The API (Application Programming Interface) allows for automated communication between connected systems. Before automated fulfillment can begin, API access must be enabled.
Review order status
PackageBee will import orders that have financial_status: paid and fulfillment_status: unshipped.
Inventory tracking is automatically enabled for your Shopify integration.
Gift card and virtual product orders
Orders containing gift cards or other virtual products are partially-fulfilled, and have the order status Partial. To import these orders, enable them in your PackageBee store.
Orders with no line items
Orders imported from Shopify can be excluded by a fulfillment service at the line-item level. For this reason, orders in your PackageBee store may occasionally be imported from Shopify without line items.
