Previously, Starshipit's integration with Shopify only received order details once, when the order was placed. This meant that orders that were cancelled or updated once the order was already in Starshipit could accidentally be sent out when they shouldnt be, or with the wrong address or items.
We've solved this problem with Shopify Enhanced. Shopify Enhanced will now check all of your orders each time we import to see if there have been any updates to the orders and apply them to your shipped orders.
- If orders have been cancelled in Shopify, we will remove them from Starshipit
- If orders have been edited since we last imported them, we will sync those changes to the order in Starshipit (update shipping addresses, check the item quantities etc)
For more information on Shopify Enhanced, including migrating from Shopify classic, check out our support guide.
Quick Print allows you to reduce printing errors and streamline your workflow when packing many orders. Although it's great for single accounts, when printing across many child accounts it can be time consuming and complicated to switch between accounts to print your orders.
That is why we've introduced the option to print orders no matter which of your accounts they are in, from your parent account.
- Log into your parent account
- Navigate to the Quick Print page
- Select Include orders from child accounts
- Enter or scan your order number
- If the order number is unique, the order will print out immediately. If there are multiple of the same order number, the results will display however you will need to navigate to that child account to print the order.
Note: This feature is only available on UI 2.0. For more information on quick print, see our support guide and video.
We're excited to announce that the Starshipit X Uber integration is live!
The Uber integration allows you to leverage the Uber platform to provide on demand delivery services to your customers. This integration supports live rates in app, generating a real-time tracking link and booking in a driver for pickup.

- If you don't have an Uber Delivery account already, get in touch with our friendly support team who can introduce you to the Uber accounts team and help get the ball rolling
- If you already are using Uber Delivery then all you need is your Customer ID to get started.

- Create a new custom text metafield in Shopify. The name space and key will need to be bin_location
- Ensure your products have values set
- Go to Starshipit > Settings > Integrations > Shopify Advanced > Import Bin Location metafield and select whether you have configured the bin location on the product or the variant
- Click Save
- Import your orders, the bin location will now come through automatically

We've enhanced our rules engine to support assigning packages on import. This means we can automate package selection based on any of our rule conditions (think Item SKU's, Destinations, Shopify tags).

- Go to Settings>Package Setup
- Click Add a new box
- Enter in the name and dimensions of the box
- Click Save
Once you have all your packages, you can create rules to assign them automatically when your orders are imported into Starshipit.
- Go to Settings>Rules
- Click Add a new rule
- Select the conditionthe rule should apply in
- Select Set Package Typeas the action and the package you would like to apply as the value
