Configuration Options

All your configuration options may be accessed in Shippit by going to Settings > Integrations.

Order Sync


The Orders tab allows you to configure how you would like to synchronise your orders from eBay to Shippit through the following options:

  • Auto-Sync New Orders - set to Yes by default; this option ensures orders in the status Processing are automatically pulled across into Shippit from eBay

  • Default Email - this will be used for orders that do not contain a customer’s email address

  • Sync Delivery Instructions - allows you to decide whether you'd like the order notes/special instructions field in eBay to be pulled across into Shippit as Delivery Instructions

Shipping Method Mapping


The Shipping Method Mapping function allows you to match your eBay shipping methods to a specific service or service class in Shippit.


Notice that there is an option to map to the Shippit service type Click & Collect. This is for customers who prefer to pick-up orders from the store. You can generate a label for orders mapped to this shipping method and as soon as the label is downloaded from the New Orders tab, the order moves straight to the Track tab.

Lastly, there will be plenty of eBay Shipping Methods appearing on the dropdown. You only need to map the options that you actually use.

Manual Order Import


You can manually import orders to Shippit through our integration middleware, Shippit Connect.

Once logged into Shippit, go to Settings > Integrations and click Launch Connect. Here you can:

  • Manually import in bulk the orders awaiting fulfillment by going to Orders > Click Import Orders

  • Manually import an individual order by going to Orders> Click the downward arrow next to Import Orders > Choose By Order Number and enter the eBay order reference number

  • Manually import orders in bulk by going to Orders> Click the downward arrow next to Import Orders > Choose By Created Date and select the date and time from when you would like to import orders

The limit for the time range is until 60 day past and only unfulfilled orders will be imported. You may also tick on Re-import previously imported orders.

Once you click Import Order, will see a green Processing bar appear at the top of the page informing you of how many orders are being processed for import.

Alternately, you can also use this middleware to:

  • Update integration settings

  • View order sync history - see which orders were successfully sent to Shippit including any that failed

  • View fulfillment sync history - see which shipment status were successfully sent to Shippit including any that failed

Fulfillments Sync


The Fulfillments tab allows you to configure how you would like to synchronise your orders' shipment status from Shippit to eBay. With this setting enabled, Shippit will update your shopping cart with all tracking information of the order.


TEST your configuration by creating a dummy order in BigCommerce based on the different order sync criteria you have identified here. If you encounter any challenges, email us right away at [email protected]
