Helpful tips for using DistributorCentral's ShipStation Integration:

  • All order #'s are prefixed with the DC Order Number
    For example:1234567-987654 (with 1234567 being the DC order number) 
  • You can search ShipStation by the DC Order Number to find shipments related to that order
  • Orders with multiple addresses are separate orders within ShipStation to allow you to easily ship to multiple addresses
  • Tracking numbers are automatically added to your DC order once you print a label for that order
