So, you have a new selling platform and you are looking for a full service drop shipping company. There are many options out there, but you have looked around and want to partner with 4C Print Shop to grow your small company! You have made the right choice by the way! As we take a deeper look into Shipstation we will give you the basic foundation for how to starting using Shipstation yourself! ShipStation works with a variety of selling platforms. If you haven’t quite decided what platform to use we have some articles on Shopify , Big Cartel, and Etsy . They might help steer you in the direction of which would be best for your shop and business model.
Once you have chosen, and set up your site, you will also want to sign up with ShipStation. From there you will connect your online store to your ShipStation account. There is an option to send certain orders to different companies. If you have that need you will create different tags for the shops. You can check your orders by running a query in ShipStation. When the orders come up you will tag them “4C”. Then you can log into your 4C Order Portal, select the ShipStation tab and run another query. This will then pull the orders you tagged with 4C Print Shop into your portal account.
How easy is that? Most of the manual work is done. When you place an order for the first time, you will need to check over the order and assign details that did not auto-populate. Address and notes will not auto-populate. This means for each size, shirt color, artwork you will need to check the order and assign the correct information. The program is progressive and should remember the details for future orders. You can place notes as normal. From there you will be directed to checkout with Paypal, the order will be sent to us and we will start to process it. We also have a tutorial on how to use it here.
