In this article, we describe how ShipStation vendors view an Onport order on their platform.
If your vendors use ShipStation as their platform, they will receive and fulfill orders directly from their ShipStation site. This means that there is no need for them to access external portals for you to communicate these orders to them. Whatever orders come to Onport, will also come to their site.
As you are familiar with how orders look in your Onport portal, you may wonder how it looks from the vendor's side. This article will show you how the vendors view orders from their ShipStation accounts.
What does the order dashboard look like?
In ShipStation, the vendors will have an Orders tab on the top panel. When clicking on this, they will be able to view their orders dashboard.
These orders are categorized on the left panel, and each category can also be filtered by the store. This way your vendors will be able to easily view a list of orders coming from your store.
What information does each order contain?
When clicking into an order, they can view all the relevant information from the top of the page. It will show where the order came from (in this case from you), and whether it’s filled.
Creating shipping labels
Currently it is not possible for Onport to pass shipping labels to vendors using ShipStation. Therefore, they can print their own labels, by selecting the order and clicking Create + Print Label. Similarly, they can print labels from the custom fields panel on the right side.
