Integration Setup

To connect your Shipwire account to Order Desk, click on Manage Integrations under the Integrations menu in the left sidebar. Under the Fulfillment tab, find and enable Shipwire.

Alternatively, search for Shipwire from the available integration search. 

Select the environment your store should be in for this connection then enter your Shipwire username (email) and password. If you created an API-only username and password you can enter that here as well. Click Connect to enable the integration.

Please note that Order Desk isn’t able to help find or reset your credentials, as they can only be provided by Shipwire.


Once connected, you will have some settings and preferences to apply to the integration for your store.


This shows the environment chosen during setup. If you need to change the environment, click the Disconnect button from the lower right corner of the integration settings:

Then select the new environment and put in your credentials again to reconnect.

Default Mail Class

Choose the default mail class you want to use for your orders. This shipping class will be used for any orders sent to Shipwire that don't have their shipping method mapped to Shipwire's method in the shipping class match section.

To set up more than one shipping method, scroll down to the shipping class match section for instructions.

After Import, Move To

Select the folder orders should be moved to after they are sent to Shipwire from Order Desk. Typically this is set to Prepared, but any custom folder can be used.

After Shipment, Move To

Select the folder orders should be moved to when Shipwire sends tracking details back to Order Desk about them.

If Canceled, Move To

Select the folder orders should be moved to if they are canceled at Shipwire.

Default Ship From Name

Shipwire will use the name set here as the ship from name on your shipments.

Currency Code

Set the store's currency code so customs information will be accurate.

Automatically Send Imported Orders to Shipwire

Select this option if you want all imported orders to be sent to Shipwire.

If you have orders that you do not want sent to Shipwire, do not enable this option. You will need to create rules to submit your orders to Shipwire instead.

Orders Can Be Split For Faster Shipping

Select this option if you want Shipwire to split your orders into multiple shipments for faster shipping times.

Inventory Syncing

Sync Shipwire Inventory

Order Desk can pull in your inventory counts from Shipwire if this setting is enabled.

Update Interval

Sync Warehouse

Warehouse ID List

If you have inventory in more than one warehouse, add the warehouse IDs here, separated by a comma, and Order Desk will download your inventory from each.

Shipping Class Match

Using the shipping class match feature, you can match as many different shipping methods as you offer to the methods Shipwire uses to ensure your customers are getting the closest shipping option to what they selected at checkout.

For information on how to set up your shipping preferences, please read the shipping class match guide.

Customize Order Details

You can add custom details to your orders to be passed through to Shipwire. Add these details as checkout data or metadata fields. The field names must be an exact match to this table.

FromName Return address name override
CarrierCode Third-party carrier code request
ShippingAccount Third-party shipping account number
