Migrating to new ShipStation API
June 23, 2015 /
Hello ShipStation users –
Over the next two weeks, we will be migrating users over to ShipStation’s new API.
The core ShipStation/Finale Inventory functionality will not be changing, but you will see a new and improved user interface to make it simpler and more intuitive to use.
The new ShipStation authentication uses API keys as opposed to a ShipStation login credential with API access to authenticate and link your ShipStation account to Finale.
In preparation for the migration next week, can you please follow the directions below to authenticate and link your ShipStation using the API keys. We request you complete these steps by Friday, June 26.
The entire process is straight forward and should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
After you successfully linked accounts, please continue using the current ShipStation integration as you have been. You will receive more instructions next week, and we expect the migration will be seamless.
1) Obtain your API credentials from ShipStation
Login in your ShipStation account and click on the “Account Settings link” (the sprocket icon located in the upper right of the home screen)
Click on the “API Settings” in the left hand navigation and Click on the Green “Get API Keys.”
2) Link ShipStation to Finale
Please open a new browser tab, login to your Finale account, and click on the new “Connections” link.
