BestBuy CA Integration Notes

  • ShipStation will not receive status updates for Best Buy CA orders. If a Best Buy CA order is cancelled or shipped outside of ShipStation, you will need to manually update the ShipStation order record.

  • If a Best Buy CA order is partially rejected, ShipStation will:

    1. List the SKUs that were rejected in Custom Field 1.

    2. Apply a Rejected tag to the order.

      Note

      An automation rule titled BBCA REFUSED will apply the tag. This automation rule is created the first time a Best Buy CA store connects to ShipStation. If the rule or tag is deleted or modified, this action may no longer function as intended.
