You can follow the steps in this article to integration your Zentail account with your ShipWorks account.

Review your ShipWorks Integrations Settings

  1. Go to your Integrations page on Zentail and take the following steps:

  1. Take note of the Store URL to be used later in ShipWorks.

  2. Enter a secure Username and Password to be used later entered in ShipWorks.

  3. Select each channel to sync with (VERY IMPORTANT). This determines whether Zentail will actually send orders from a specific channel into your ShipWorks account. Zentail will also send orders from the selected channel into your Shipworks account for 'X' number of days in the past (you will determine the number of days back shortly)

  4. Remember to click Save Settings.

Add Stores on ShipWorks

  1. Go to your ShipWorks application.
    - Note: there is a feature on ShipWorks called "Backup Database". This may be a useful feature and you can read more about it: Connect ShipWorks to a Backup Database File

  2. Under the "Manage" icon, select the "Stores" icon.

  3. Click Add Store.

4. Select “Zentail” for store type, click Next.

Store Setup & Store Information

  1. Enter same username and password as entered in the Zentail integration card.

  2. Enter the Store URL from your Zentail integration card into the Module URL field. The data entered here must match exactly what is on Zentail, otherwise the integration will not work.

  3. Click Next

4. In the Store Information section, enter the Store name and address and click Next.

5. In the Contact Information, add your website, email and phone number and click Next.

Complete Store Setup

  1. Depending on which orders you want in ShipWorks choose the number of days.
    Zentail will send orders on Zentail into ShipWorks for the selected number of days in the past (as well as from this point forward). Please note:
    > Overlap will occur if you had a different fulfillment integration linked for this warehouse previously.

    > ShipWorks does not allow you to download orders from 0 days.
    > Be cautious while fulfilling orders to avoid double-fulfilling orders.

2. Check both the check boxes and and select “Shipped” as the Status.
