PrestaShop

Note

PrestaShop Shipment Callback URL

If you change your PrestaShop URL in the future, this will need to be updated in ShippingEasy. Click on Edit store settings and scroll down to "API Configuration". Your Store URL will be in the "Store URL" field. The remainder of the Callback URL (after the .com) will be in the "Shipment Callback Path" field. If the full Callback URL is in the "Shipment Callback Path" we will not be able to update your site with the shipment information.

Your new store is displayed on the STORES & ORDERS settings page. For PrestaShop 1.7, your setup is complete.

For PrestaShop 1.5 and 1.6, complete your store integration by configuring your PrestaShop admin preferences. Complete these steps in the following sections of this article.

PrestaShop Integration Notes

Order Sync

Unlike most ShippingEasy store integrations, PrestaShop orders are not periodically read into your ShippingEasy account by the ShippingEasy application. Instead, orders are sent by your PrestaShop store - in this case, specifically by the ShippingEasy PrestaShop plugin. The orders are sent as soon as they are entered, so there is no delay.

  • To get existing orders into ShippingEasy, click the Send to ShippingEasy button on the Orders page in PrestaShop.

Product Sync

  • Reference values are displayed as the SKU in ShippingEasy. If a specific combination of a product is included in an order, then the reference value for that combination is used as the SKU. In this example, the Orange shirt, size S has a Reference of demo-1-orange, which would be shown as the SKU in ShippingEasy:
