Shopify integration: Troubleshooting

If you’re looking for more info about Shopify Shipping (where you can order and print your parcel delivery labels directly from your Shopify account), head over here.

If you’re running into some problems with your Shopify integration, there’s no need to worry. 

We’ve explained below some simple troubleshooting steps to cover the most common issues: connecting Shopify, order status, auto-filled orders and tracking. 

Shopify order status

Sendle will import and sync all of your ‘Unfulfilled’ and ‘Partially Filled’ Shopify sales that have been paid for. Remember that Sendle won’t import any sales with a 'payment pending' status or ‘Fulfilled’ orders.

Order Reference: prefix / suffix

At this stage, the integration will only pull across the standard 4-digit Order Number from Shopify. Any prefix or suffix added to the order will not be pulled across.

Auto-fulfilled orders

If this feature activated in your Shopify store, you’ll find that no orders will appear in your Sendle dashboard. This is because the order state is ‘Fulfilled’ immediately upon payment. Want more info about this? Head over to Shopify's website and read more about it here

Tracking updates

When you book a parcel through the Sendle dashboard, it will be assigned an alpha-numeric Sendle reference number (it looks a little like this: S3NDL3R). This will be sent back to your Shopify admin page, along with a fulfillment confirmation. 

Further tracking updates will not be imported through to Shopify, however, you can always check the status on Sendle’s tracking page. Sendle will also link the reference number in Shopify which will take the receiver to our tracking page – so your customers can still monitor the progress of their parcel.
