May 2018 Update

A lot of hard work has been going on within Shiptheory since the last update that was brought to you in February and I'll be able to show you the fruits of our labour within this update.

Channels

WooCommerce

The first channel we've added this month is one that you more than likely have heard of before which is WooCommerce. If you aren't overly familiar with WooCommerce, it is a free WordPress plugin that allows you to buy and sell products from your WordPress site and allows you to run your eCommerce site with ease. This has lead WooCommerce to be a very popular choice among online businesses ever since its launch in September 2011. If you're interested in using them it could be beneficial to take a look over their website.

If you're already familiar with WooCommerce and want to connect your account integrated with Shiptheory, you can login to your Shiptheory account and start getting the WooCommerce integration setup by clicking here. When you're all setup and going, this integration will be no different from the rest and it will finally allow you to automate all of the shipping labels in your WooCommerce store!

TradeGecko

The other channel we've created an integration for this month is TradeGecko, this is another big channel that prides itself on it's inventory management capability. TradeGecko already has integrations with other sales channels like Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce and many others. You can read more about TradeGecko and how they could potentially benefit you here.

With the TradeGecko integration you can now automate all of your shipping labels from a carrier and have the tracking numbers sent straight back to your TradeGecko store, as you can imagine this enhances the capabilities of TradeGecko as you can stay within your store to do everything from creating the order to printing the label.
