PackageBee uses the DropStream WordPress plugin, which requires minimum versions of the software on your store's back end. Review the requirements, and verify that your WooCommerce store is compatible.
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 WooCommerce are identical to the SKUs loaded into your warehouse management system.
Gather shipping methods
As part of the third-party fulfillment setup, a mapping must be created from each shipping method offered in the eCommerce system to the unique shipping code used by the fulfillment center.
Gather API credentials
Gather the information required to access the WooCommerce API.
Enable API access
Enter the API credentials in your PackageBee store to enable API access.
Enable Shipment Tracking extension
A Shipment Tracking extension is required to enable tracking numbers for WooCommerce orders. After you install the extension, PackageBee will populate tracking numbers in the order when they become available.
Review order status
When you set the integration to Enabled, PackageBee automatically sends orders from WooCommerce to your warehouse management system.
