NOTE: We recommend adjusting the order number format to exclude any special characters like '#' symbols, as some carriers may not accept order numbers in this format.
See here for instructions.
You can add any number of Shopify stores to your ReadyToShip account.
Go to Settings ⇒ Stores on the ReadyToShip menu.
Select Shopify from the list of available stores.
Enter the address of your Shopify store. This must be the myshopify.com address even if you have a domain name pointing at your Shopify store.
Click the Connect button. You will be redirected to your Shopify store. If necessary you may be prompted to login to your Shopify store.
Click Install App to add the ReadyToShip app to your Shopify store. The app enables us to import orders from your store and update your orders with shipping and tracking information.
After installing the app you will be sent back to ReadyToShip to update some settings for your Shopify store. Add a descriptive name and return address for your Shopify store for ReadyToShip.
You must fill out a valid Return Address – most carriers won’t work properly without one.
Each store can have a different return address which is useful if you are operating under multiple business names or if you have multiple warehouse distribution centres.
Click the Save Shopify Store button and orders will start importing right away.
By default, orders from the last seven days will be imported. If you need older orders please contact us and we will import them for you.
You have now finished adding your Shopify store.
You may also have to complete the Carrier Mapping step. For more information, see our guide on Carrier Mapping.
Adding Live Rates to Shopify Checkout
For live rates, we recommend installing this excellent app:
You can use your carrier account rates, show standard rates and use business rules. The app even includes a product editing grid so you can add dimensions to items for more accurate rate quotes.
