Steps to try if you receive an error when attempting to import orders into ShipStation from a connected store.
If you successfully connected your store to ShipStation but it is receiving an error message when you attempt to import orders, follow the steps below:
Review Support Resources
The Common Store Errors page contains a list of common errors you may see when trying to import orders into ShipStation.
The Integrations Help Guide includes an article for each of our store or marketplace connections, which include troubleshooting steps for resolving common errors. When available, we also include links to partner resources, which can help with certain channel-specific issues you may encounter when importing orders.
Ensure the site is not in Test or Maintenance mode
These developer modes can be helpful for internal troubleshooting, but since ShipStation is a third-party connection we may not be able to successfully import orders if your site is in test or maintenance mode.
Review the Store Activity Log to see when the issue started
Reviewing the store activity log will help you determine when the error messages began, which may help you identify the cause of error. Knowing when the issue began can help you identify potential new orders or website modifications that may be causing the error.
Contact the ShipStation User Success team
If the above advice does not resolve the import issue, contact the ShipStation's User Success team and we will review the error and discuss possible solutions. Since this may require access to your store or marketplace, we may need you to share your screen with us. Review the Contacting ShipStation Support article for additional information.
