Keep this in mind about ShipStation's integration with GeekSeller:
GeekSeller orders are only exposed to ShipStation a single time. If you update the order in GeekSeller after it's already imported into ShipStation, the updates will not be sent to ShipStation.
There is a delay of 30-45 minutes before a GeekSeller order will be made available to ShipStation. GeekSeller holds these orders to allow time for the order to be updated or cancelled before it's sent to ShipStation.
ShipStation is not able to send emails for GeekSeller orders. All customer notifications will be handled by GeekSeller, or the original selling channel.
