How to: Refresh my store and download new orders and shipments

Created:   |   Updated:

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 allows you to see new orders between these download intervals. Learn more.
  • Some merchants 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. Learn more.
  • It is possible to download Amazon Fulfillment Network shipments. Merchants who sell between Seller Fulfilled and Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) may wish to have these shipments pulled into ShippingEasy. When enabled, FBA shipments will download once an hour. Manually refreshing shipments allows you to see new shipments between these download intervals. Learn more.

NOTE: Some platform integrations work on a reverse principle, where orders are pushed into ShippingEasy, rather than ShippingEasy pulling them in. Learn more.

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.

To refresh your store and download new orders and shipments:

  1. Navigate to the ORDERS page.

  2. Click the Sync option.

  3. Choose to sync specific stores or all stores.
    • Sync specific stores: click the sync arrows to the right of each store listing.
    • Sync all stores at once: click the Sync All Stores option at the top of the dialog.

  4. A blue message will automatically appear at the top of the ORDERS page, confirming a store sync is occurring.Syncing_Orders_Now_message.png
    NOTE: it can take up to 20 minutes to refresh your store and download all orders and shipments, depending on the amount of records and network traffic.
  5. You can check the status of a store sync by refreshing the ORDERS page. Then click the Sync option again. Any stores still syncing will display grey spinning arrows.

  6. Refresh your browser during and after the store sync, to check for new orders from your integrated store(s) in the ORDERS page.

    Hello, Can you please tell me why I also don't have a sync button. It is very frustrating to have to manually copy and paste everything. I switched to you guys to save myself time cause everything was supposed to be synced to here. & now i pay more than I was with stamps.com & I still have to manually copy and paste more than 1/2 the time. :(

    Hello Nicole and Tamara, 

    Thank you for posting to our Help Center.

    Because the LulaRoe Bless system automatically sends your orders to ShippingEasy, it operates by pushing your orders instead. We have gone ahead and updated the article above to include the Bless system in the Note at the bottom. 

    If you are experiencing problems getting your orders sent to ShippingEasy, we would recommend checking our our LuLaRoe / Bless guide below for further help.
