  2. Click on "Visit App Store" in the top right hand corner of that screen
  3. Search for Shippit
  4. Authorise Shippit to access your Shopify store information

Configuring the App:

  1. Paste in the API key provided to you by your contact person at Shippit
  2. Set "Send all orders to Shippit" to ON
  3. Ensure all other settings are set to OFF
  4. Click "UPDATE" and await a green tick beside your API key and you're good to go.
