Syncing New Orders and Shipments | Guide

By default, ShippingEasy automatically connects with your store around the clock. The frequency of order download depends on the specific store type.

 Most stores Regular intervals every hour. For example, a store might always automatically sync at 20 minutes after the hour.
 Volusion Every 2 hours 
 Solid Commerce, Americommerce Every 4 hours

 

There are two exceptions to ShippingEasy's automatic order downloads.
  • If you have disabled automatic order downloads, ShippingEasy will only sync on demand. This is done by selecting the Sync link. Learn more about disabling automatic order downloads.
  • If the store works on a reverse principle, where orders are pushed into ShippingEasy, rather than ShippingEasy pulling them in.  The following "push" platforms do not have the Sync option: Eleventh Ave, LuLaRoe BLESS, Navigator Business Systems, OneSaas, OpenCart, PrestaShop, SynCommerce, WooCommerce (Legacy), X-Cart.
If your orders are not downloading as described, consider these resources:

Reasons to Manually Sync Orders and Shipments

Although ShippingEasy is able to automatically sync orders and shipments, there are times when you may want to manually refresh your store and download new data.

  • When automatic order downloads are enabled, new orders are downloaded on a 1-4 hour basis, depending on the platform. Manually refreshing orders allow you to see new orders between these download intervals. 
  • You may prefer to disable automatic order downloads. When this is configured, new orders are not downloaded automatically. Rather, new orders are only downloaded on demand. 
  • You can download Amazon Fulfillment Network shipments. If you sell between Seller Fulfilled and Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) you may wish to have these shipments pulled into ShippingEasy. When enabled, FBA shipments will download once an hour. Manually refreshing shipments allow you to see new shipments between these download intervals.

    It can take up to 20 minutes to refresh your store and download all orders and shipments, depending on the number of records and network traffic.

  5. You can check the status of store sync by refreshing the ORDERS page. Then click the Sync option again. Any stores still syncing will display grey spinning arrows.
