What happens after I connect eBay to Shippo?
After you connect, your eBay orders will automatically import to the Shippo Orders Page.
Will I be able to see the specific order details like item information?
The orders on the Shippo Orders Page will include all order information like order number, items in the order, quantity, cost of items, cost of shipping your buyers selected, etc. You can reference those details while you create the shipping label in Shippo.
Why are some of my eBay orders missing in Shippo?
Shippo will not import orders with an "Active" order status. Orders will only be imported into Shippo when the order status is no longer showing "Active".
If you are unsure about whether an order is active or not, check the "Date Paid" column in the Orders listing page in eBay. If the "Date Paid" is "–-" for an order then the order status is "Active".
How do I give the tracking number to my buyer?
When you create a shipping label in Shippo using an eBay order, the order status will be automatically updated in your eBay store and tracking information will be sent back to eBay automatically. This update will trigger eBay to send your eBay email notifications to your customers.
If you prefer not to use the eBay automated email notifications to send the tracking number, you can use Shippo's notifications. See Shipment Notification Emails.
