How the ShipStation for VirtueMart plugin works with your ShipStation account:

  • A customer places an order at your VirtueMart store that requires shipping.
  • In ShipStation, if you have the "Allow ShipStation to refresh your stores while you're away" box checked in your Store Setup settings, then ShipStation will attempt to auto-update orders from your store. You can also manually sync store data at any time by using the "Update All Stores" button.
  • Your designated shipping person/people go into, views the orders that need shipment, and generates shipping labels.
  • Once a label is generated, sends a notification to the Merchant's store via the component's endpoint.
  • The plugin updates the order to the Shipped order status and stores the tracking number info within the order.
