New Magento 2, ChannelAdvisor, and Squarespace Shipping Integrations

If you sell on Magento 2, ChannelAdvisor, or Squarespace, you’ll want a shipping integration to streamline and simplify your fulfillment process. Here at Shippo, we’re always looking for new e-commerce platforms to support, so that the process of getting items to your customers is seamless. In addition to our existing list of shipping integrations, we’ve added three more e-commerce platforms: Squarespace, Magento 2, and ChannelAdvisor.

Here’s an overview of the new shipping integrations and how to set up each one.

Squarespace Shipping Integration with Shippo

Retailers selling their goods on Squarespace can connect their Squarespace account with Shippo and automatically import their Squarespace orders and SKUs into Shippo’s web application. Once the shipping labels are generated, Shippo pushes the tracking information back to the Squarespace profile.

Important Note: You must save your API key immediately after generation, because it cannot be retrieved later. If you do not copy it successfully before closing the dialog, you will have to generate a new API key.
