Shipwire and WordPress ecommerce work together seamlessly to deliver a fully integrated order fulfillment solution. WP ecommerce (GetShopped.org) released an integration to Shipwire in June 2012. You can see details of the integration at here. Click to download the module.
Order Entry – Orders are submitted to Shipwire from your ecommerce store automatically via our Order Entry API. Once your online store receives an order, Shipwire takes care of the rest.
Order Tracking – All tracking information related to completed shipments is pulled automatically, including expected delivery dates.
Inventory Status – You can query your inventory status globally, by region, or by warehouse. Find out when inventory will be available for products that are out of stock.
Shipping Rates – Obtain real-time shipping rates at any time during checkout. Shipwire will return the most cost-effective rates, choosing from the best warehouse, packaging, and carrier available based on your Optimizer preferences.
See the WordPress ecommerce documentation here. When you are setting up your store to integrate with Shipwire, there are a few important details to keep in mind:
- Product catalogs must be identical to the SKUs you set up in Shipwire.
- SKUs must be unique for each item.
- The billing email is used for the shipping email address, as WP ecommerce doesn’t currently provide a shipping email unique_name.
- The API request sent to Shipwire is based on the checkout form’s unique_names. For example, we don’t currently have a unique_name for Address2, so you’ll want to make sure the address field remains as a text area so that customers can enter multiple lines for addresses.
