ShipWorks connects directly to your osCommerce account. With one click, or on an automated schedule, your orders are downloaded from osCommerce. As soon as you process a shipment, ShipWorks communicates the updated order status, shipping method and tracking information back to osCommerce.
This article will walk you through how to connect your osCommerce store to the ShipWorks software.
First Things First
Before you begin you will need to have a few things available:
ShipWorks installed and the ability to log into ShipWorks as an administrator.
Your osCommerce store's FTP (File Transfer Protocol) host address, username and password. If you do not have this information, please reach out to your resident IT person, host provider, or osCommerce.
ShipWorks connects to osCommerce using a .php module which is placed into your osCommerce store's admin directory. The file is attached to the end of this article and will need to be uploaded to your osCommerce store using your favorite FTP client. If you are not familiar with the process of transferring files using FTP, that's OK. You have a few options.
