Icon.ShipStation.png The ShipStation module, located in the Sales group, is an add-on module that can be installed from the Small.Plugin.png Plugin module. After installing the plugin, a new module is added that integrates with ShipStation's eCommerce shipping software. After an order has been picked in Fishbowl, the order information will be sent to ShipStation. After the order has been processed in ShipStation, the tracking number and carton costs will be sent back to Fishbowl. The Small.ShipStation.png ShipStation module also provides a browser view to access the ShipStation interface from within the Fishbowl Client.
