WP EasyCart is a WordPress eCommerce and WordPress Shopping Cart plugin that lets you sell retail, downloads, subscriptions, and more on their website. WP EasyCart Premium users can install the ShipStation plugin to connect and send orders to ShipStation.
To use WP EasyCart with ShipStation, you'll need to download and install the ShipStation plugin, then generate a set of API keys and enter them in plugin settings within WP EasyCart.
For more information on connecting and using ShipStation with WP EasyCart, see the ShipStation page on the WP EasyCart help center.
In order for WP EasyCart to send orders to ShipStation, they must meet the following criteria:
Be in an Approved status (e.g., Card Approved, Third-Party Approved, Order Shipped, etc).
Contain a shippable product. Virtual products, like digital gift cards, will not be included when WP EasyCart sends orders to ShipStation.
WP EasyCart orders import into the most recent manual store you have created in ShipStation. After the initial import, WP EasyCart will continue to use the same manual store to import orders, even if you add more manual stores to ShipStation later. If you have no active manual stores in ShipStation, WP EasyCart will not be able to send orders to ShipStation.
WP EasyCart sends the following information about your orders to ShipStation:
Order and Ship By date
Customer Email address
Bill To information (name, address, phone)
Ship To information (name, address, phone)
Item information (SKU, name, weight, quantity, unit price, productID)
WP EasyCart uses webhooks to get shipment information (tracking number and shipping method) after you create shipping labels in ShipStation, which WP EasyCart then stores and uses to update the order status within WP EasyCart.
To connect your ShipStation account to WP EasyCart, follow the steps below:
Before you get started, generate your ShipStation API Key and API Secret. We'll need those later to connect ShipStation and WP EasyCart.

Download the ShipStation plugin.
Login to your WordPress account.
Click Plugins > Add New.
Upload the ShipStation plugin.
Click WP EasyCart > Settings.
Click Third Party.
Enter your ShipStation API Key and API Secret into the corresponding fields.
Enter an Order Key Prefix if you have multiple stores and would like to differentiate between orders from different stores in ShipStation.
Click Save Setup.
If you have orders already in WP EasyCart that you'd like to import into ShipStation, enter the order number range into the Import Orders fields in the ShipStation Setup widget, then click Import.
You only need to do this one time to import your existing orders. Going forward, WP EasyCart will automatically send new orders to ShipStation, as long as the order meets the correct criteria.
