    10. If you only have one AmeriCommerce store, click here to skip to the next step to find your Access token.

      However, if you have multiple AmeriCommerce stores, you have two options at this point:

      • Have ShippingEasy pull orders from each AmeriCommerce website, as individual stores.

        This will give you maximum control over your order management.  Just use the steps to connect an existing store, using a unique URL for each store.

        To complete the integration for this store, click here to skip to the next step to find your Access token.

        Then be sure to repeat the steps in this article for additional stores.

      • Have ShippingEasy pull all orders from all your Americommerce websites, as a single store.

        If you prefer this option, follow these additional steps:

        1. On the row for ShippingEasy, click the icon for Edit - it has an arrow on it.
