The start of a brand new decade is also the time of exciting updates at Shiptheory. We've been working our socks off since our last update to bring you more ways to make your shipping process even easier.
Read our 2020 update to find out what's new in the 'shipiverse'.
We're proud to announce that we have added four new channel integrations with the popular platforms of Etsy, Squarespace, Amazon, and Xero.
All you creative shop owners out there can now integrate your Etsy store directly to Shiptheory. This means that you will be able to see your orders and shipments from your store all in one place.
Connecting your Etsy account is easy. Simply enable Etsy on the 'Manage Channels' drop-down menu. Once you're connected, new orders will automatically appear in your Shiptheory account.
Squarespace and Shiptheory now go hand in hand with smooth shipping and delivery.
To connect your Squarespace store to Shiptheory you need to create an API key. This is found in your Settings > Advanced > Squarespace API Keys > Create Keys.
Once this is connected, any orders that come through your Squarespace checkout will be shown on your Shiptheory dashboard.
Amazon sellers, you can now connect to Shiptheory to automate your shipping label printing.
Once an order has been paid by the customer and Amazon gives it an 'Unshipped' status, Shiptheory will receive the order details. Then you can get going with your automated shipping labels, making your shipping so much faster than before.
A brand new feature is the arrival of the integration with accounting software, Xero.
Rather than sending orders or shipments, invoices from Xero will be sent to your Shiptheory dashboard for you to print shipping labels. Instead of orders, this software uses the concept of 'invoices'.
You can also manage what data is downloaded and uploaded from the software with notes and tracking updates, find out how it works in our Xero guide.
New Feature - Unleashed
For Unleashed software users, we've added the feature to download shipments based on their status option.
By default, Shiptheory receives your Unleashed order as soon as a shipment has been created. However, with this update, you can select a particular shipment status an order must reach before it is sent to Shiptheory.
We are pleased to announce that over the last few months we have added 9 new carriers to Shiptheory, further increasing your shipping capabilities.
Popular parcel delivery and courier service, Hermes, has been added as a carrier to Shiptheory. We have support for Hermes international shipping to the EU and beyond.
The services we support include Parcel, Parcel Next Day, Parcel Next Day Signed, and Parcel Signed.
We've created a quick and easy way to automate your shipping labels for Whistl. If you have a Whistl account, simply enter your Whistl login credentials then add the carrier to your Shiptheory account.
Advanced settings are available to schedule collection times, change currency, choose custom charges responsibility, and set default parcel dimensions.
