Data that has changed since the Last Sync date will be synchronized. This date will be updated automatically after a sync, or it can be manually edited to adjust which data will be synchronized.
NOTE: When setting up the shopping cart integration for the first time you will want to adjust the Last Sync to a date before any of your products were created (for example, setting the year to 2000) so that all of the products on your website will be imported.

The product import task imports products into Fishbowl from ShipStation. A product link is created by storing the ShipStation product ID in Fishbowl. Select ONE of the following options:

  1. Link existing products - This option will match existing products in Fishbowl and ShipStation where data matches in the selected fields.
  2. Import products - This option will import products from ShipStation into Fishbowl, creating them based on the field mapping and selected settings. If the weight or size UOM isn't set in ShipStation, the default UOMs listed here will be used.

ShipStation Product Export.png
  • Schedule - Select the Checked.png Active checkbox to export products on a set schedule. Click the Run task Button.png Run task button to run the scheduled task right now. Data that has changed since the Last Sync date will be synchronized. This date will be updated automatically after a sync, or it can be manually edited to adjust which data will be synchronized.
  • Update Linked Products - Map the fields that should be imported from ShipStation to Fishbowl. If the weight or size UOM isn't set in ShipStation, the default UOMs listed here will be used. The selected product trees will be included, or all product trees will be included if the field is left blank. Selecting the Export All Products option will ignore the last sync date and attempt to push all of the Fishbowl products to ShipStation. The product tree filter will still apply.

  • Enter an email address in the Small.Schedule.png Schedule module to receive error notifications.
  • To view the history of a scheduled task, including the result/error, click the History Icon Button.png History button in the Small.Schedule.png Schedule module.
  • More details about recent errors can be viewed by opening the Small.Data.png Data module and clicking the Server Log Button.png Server Log button.
  • Check for multiple versions of the ShipStation.jar file in C:\Program Files\Fishbowl\plugins\ or \Applications\Fishbowl\plugins\ on a Mac. If there are two ShipStation versions, exit the Fishbowl Server and remove the older version on all client and server computers.
