Unify by Webgility

Provides information on the Unify by Webgility integration to ShipStation and links for relevant resources.

Webgility’s Unify for ShipStation software takes data for multichannel eCommerce orders, fees, and shipping expenses directly from your ShipStation account and automatically posts it to QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Desktop, or Xero. Sell on any store, platform, location, or marketplace and Unify for ShipStation will bring it all together in your accounting.

There are two options with Unify by Webgility for ShipStation:

  1. Sales Channels: Webgility pulls orders from ShipStation directly, but only in order to sync them with the accounting system. This still brings over Shipping Expenses as well, but the main focus is bringing in orders.

    This integration qualifies for lower “Unify for ShipStation” price plans.

  2. Shipping Expenses: Pulls orders directly from their shopping cart or marketplace into Unify. Unify then pulls just the missing Shipping Expense from ShipStation and associates it with the orders that were already downloaded. This typically brings more robust order data into Unify (Sales tax, discount codes, etc).

    This only applies to Webgility’s standard plans at the Pro and Advanced levels.
