ShipStation Integration Scenarios and Benefits
ShipStation REST API Integration Solution Overview
The ShipStation API integration solution allows communication between BPA Platform and ShipStation for end-to-end eCommerce order fulfilment. All communication uses XML. You use the integration tool to map BPA Platform data to ShipStation objects and operations. Operations including ADD, GET, UPDATE and DELETE, are supported for a variety of objects, such as Orders, Shipments, Shipping Labels and Shipping Rates.
The XML responses received back from the ShipStation API can be saved to file or passed to another BPA Platform tool for further processing. The responses can include details of the object requested, any errors from the provider, or the values of any automatically generated ID fields. For example, you can use ShipStation integration to provide an indirect link between systems that do not typically synchronise data with each other, such as synchronising 'proof of delivery' into an ERP system or automatically updating all business systems, such as an eCommerce platform with returns data, or even to provide reports containing data from both systems.
