Acumatica Troubleshooting Tips

Here are some common issues experienced by users, potential causes, and available troubleshooting tips.

Issue

How to troubleshoot or resolve

The Order Date in ShipStation is different than the Order Date in Acumatica.

This usually occurs because the Acumatica server is using a different timezone than the timezone set in the store's settings in ShipStation, which causes the Order Date to be thrown off when converting the timestamp based on time zone.

Update the store's settings so the store is using the same timezone as the server your Acumatica store is hosted on.

Orders placed late in the day are not importing into ShipStation.

Similar to the issue above, this typically occurs because the Acumatica server is using a different timezone than the timezone set in the store's settings in ShipStation, which causes our import process to inadvertently skip ahead.

Update the store's settings so the store is using the same timezone as the server your Acumatica store is hosted on.
