ShipStation-Specific Features and Limitations

Skyvia has the following limitations for ShipStation:

  • Synchronization and Replication with Incremental Updates enabled are not supported for objects without CreatedDate and UpdatedDate fields. Both fields must be present for this functionality. Besides, for synchronization the object must be available for writing. Thus, only the Orders object supports synchronization.
  • Skyvia does not support custom fields in the default ShipStation connector. However, if you need to work with custom fields in ShipStation, you may contact our support team.
