How to add a Stripe Relay store to ShipStation, what features are available, and other need-to-know details.
Stripe Relay makes mobile commerce easier for buyers and sellers by offering an API for online retailers that improves the order checkout process in third-party mobile apps.

If you're connecting multiple Stripe accounts to ShipStation, we recommend you log out of any active Stripe sessions before connecting the accounts.

After you've completed the connection steps, your store will be connected to ShipStation. You'll be taken to the store's Settings page to adjust the store-specific settings like branding, notification preferences, and product handling.
This integration is specific to Orders from Stripe, and will not import Payments made using Stripe's standard payment processor.
Once an order is shipped or marked as shipped, ShipStation will send a shipment update to Stripe to update the order to the Fulfilled status. However, no specific shipment details (carrier, service, or tracking number) will be included. Shipment details will be included for any emails ShipStation sends to your Stripe customers.
