Additional Details about the Yahoo! Integration

  • Unless you reconfigure your store and set a new First Order ID to Import value, Yahoo! Store orders are only exposed to ShipStation a single time. If you update the order in Yahoo! Store after it's already imported into ShipStation, ShipStation will not receive the updated information.

  • As a security measure, Yahoo! Store requires that Contract Token be renewed yearly. Review Yahoo's Renew API Token article for details. Once you have a new token, you must reconfigure the Yahoo! Store's connection in ShipStation.
