Guide: Using ShipStation with Databox

Currently, there is not a direct Databox + ShipStation integration available, but there are alternative ways to sync your ShipStation data with Databox.

These alternatives utilize third-party integrations such as Zapier, Integromat, or the Databox API.

Pro Tip: If you don't have the time or resources to set this up yourself, check out our services where we can build the custom integration for you. For additional information, feel free to connect with our team via chat or email us at [email protected].

HOW TO

How to use Zapier to sync ShipStation data

Zapier is a trigger-based app, meaning you can have certain events (such as a new card being added) trigger certain actions (updating the relevant data and syncing with Databox) using Zaps. Because triggers initiate data syncs, historical data will not be available for metrics that are synced using Zapier. 

Learn more about the Zapier + Databox third-party integration here.

Whenever possible, it’s recommended that you use a Zap Template. This will save you time and will streamline the process of syncing ShipStation data with Databox using Zapier. 

You can also create Zaps from scratch if a Zap Template isn’t available.

Creating Zaps from scratch for ShipStation Metrics

The following ShipStation Metrics can also be synced with Databox by creating a Zap from scratch: 

  • New Order
    (triggered when a new order is created or imported)
  • Order Shipped
    (triggered when a new outbound shipping label is created)
  • Item Ordered 
    (triggered for each individual line item when a new order is created)
  • Item Shipped
    (triggered for each individual line item when a new outbound shipping label is created)

How to use Integromat to sync ShipStation data

Integromat is a third-party integration that allows you to sync data between apps. Integromat has a long list of native integrations along with the ability to sync custom data via the API.

Whenever possible, it’s recommended that you use an Integromat Template. This will save you time and will streamline the process of syncing ShipStation data with Databox using Integromat. 

If a Template isn’t available, you can sync additional ShipStation with Databox using Integromat by setting it up from scratch.

Syncing additional ShipStation Metrics using Integromat

The following ShipStation Metrics can also be synced with Databox by setting up the connection from scratch:

  • List Carriers
    (retrieves a list of all carriers)
  • List Customers 
    (retrieves a list of all customers)
  • List Marketplaces
    (retrieves a list of all marketplaces that can be integrated)
  • List Orders
    (retrieves a list of all orders for the specified criteria)
  • List Packages
    (retrieves a list of all packages for the specified carrier)
  • List Products
    (retrieves a list of all products)
  • List Stores
    (retrieves a list of all installed stores on the account)
  • List Tags
    (retrieves a list of all tags defined for this account)
  • List Users
    (retrieves a list of all users related to a connected account)
  • List Warehouses
    (retrieves a list of all warehouses)

Use the Databox API to sync ShipStation data

If you’re comfortable using scripting languages or you have developer resources available, you can build your own custom integration and push ShipStation data via the Databox API.
