ShipWorks connects directly to Cloud Conversion. With one click, or on an automated schedule, your orders are downloaded from Cloud Conversion. As soon as you process a shipment, ShipWorks communicates the updated order status, shipping method and tracking information back to Cloud Conversion.
First Things First
ShipWorks supports a direct integration with Cloud Conversion beginning in ShipWorks 3.9.4 (and above), so you may need to upgrade to the newest version in order to see these features.
The instructions below assume that you've downloaded and installed ShipWorks and are in the process of adding a store. It also assumes that you have a Cloud Conevrsion/Salesforce account and know your log-on credentials (username/password).
Enabling Connections through Salesforce
1. Log on to your Salesforce.com admin panel using your Salesforce.com username and password.
2. Click your name (in the upper right-hand side) and select Setup.
3. Navigate to Develop Sites.
