ShipStation's integration with Sears supports the following standard features:
Common ShipStation Features
Sent with Shipment Update
Keep this in mind about ShipStation's integration with Sears:
ShipStation will only be able to successfully update Sears with shipment information if the product SKU is less than 42 characters. If your SKUs have more than 42 characters, our notification process will result in an error and you will need to update Sears manually.
Since Sears orders are meant to be shipped within 48 hours, ShipStation will only import orders with an order date within 3 days of the current date.
If you manually update a Sears order with shipment information, the order will briefly enter the Ready to Invoice status on Sears. This may cause the order to be moved to the Awaiting Payment status in ShipStation. The order will update to the Shipped status after it has been invoiced by Sears.
