How to add a MijoShop store to ShipStation, what features are available, other need-to-know details, and troubleshooting tips.

MijoShop is a shopping cart and ecommerce system that provides unlimited products, product reviews, ratings, comparisons, and advanced features like an RMA, Affiliate, and Rewards Point system. MijoShop is a plugin for Joomla that is compatible with thousands of OpenCart extensions, including ShipStation.

MijoShop Requirements

Connection Requirements:

  • An active account with MijoShop.

  • The ShipStation extension installed in the Joomla! root folder for MijoShop.

  • The ShipStation Key and ShipStation Verification Key from the config module.

Scope of Support

Installing the extension file to the Joomla! root folder is beyond ShipStation's scope of support. We recommend you contact your store developer or MijoShop Support if you need assistance with the extension installation process, as the process can differ based on the unique Apache server configuration.

Order Import Requirements:

  • Include a Ship To address.

MijoShop Troubleshooting Tips

Here are some common issues experienced by users, potential causes, and available troubleshooting tips.

Issue

How to troubleshoot or resolve

Why is the Order Date in ShipStation different than the Order Date in MijoShop?

This usually occurs because the MijoShop server is using a different timezone than the timezone set in the store's settings in ShipStation, which causes the Order Date to be thrown off when converting the timestamp based on time zone.

Update the store's settings so the store is using the same timezone as the server your MijoShop store is hosted on.

Why are certain orders placed late in the day not importing into ShipStation?

Similar to the issue above, this typically occurs because the MijoShop server is using a different timezone than the timezone set in the store's settings in ShipStation, which causes our import process to inadvertently skip ahead.

Update the store's settings so the store is using the same timezone as the server your MijoShop store is hosted on.
