Generic CSV and Ship Upload CSV
Teapplix ActionShip supports importing from Generic CSV format. The orders will be classified as "generic", and imported from the "Import" link under Orders.
You can download a sample file below. You are responsible for mapping your orders into this format.
Here is a sample of our GenericCSVImport.
- ActionShip requires that order ids are unique in each Teapplix Account. So make sure you do not import orders with ids that are used by other orders imported into ActionShip.
- You must use correct string for ship method. You can find the full list of the ActionShip ship methods for US Shipping Carrier , and All Shipping Carrier.
- Some of the address zipcode has 0 at the beginning or end. To make sure they are not trimmed out in the CSV file, you need to make sure the format of that column is set to zipcode.
Importing orders via Generic CSV files into a Specific Order Queue
This can be done by adding a “QueueID” field to the Teapplix Generic CSV file. We recommend adding the “QueueID” as last column. See here for more info.
Generic Ship Confirmation
After "generic" orders are shipped in ActionShip, you can generate a "Generic Ship Confirmation File" from ActionShip under Report => Shipment Reports. Only "generic" orders will be included in the report. This ship confirmation file can be used to communicate shipping status, tracking number, postage costs, etc to other parties.
Bulk Upload Shipping Info to ActionShip
Here is a sample of our Bulk Upload Ship Confirm CSV File.
If you ship orders outside of ActionShip, by a 3rd party drop shipper for example, you can ask them to sends you a "Bulk Upload Ship Confirmation" file. They must use correct string for ship method. You can find the full list of the ActionShip ship methods for US Shipping Carrier , and All Shipping Carrier.
You can upload the file under "Upload Drop Ship Result" link on Open Orders page. Once uploaded, the corresponding ActionShip orders (matched by txn_id) will be closed from open orders, and their status and tracking numbers will be uploaded back to upstream marketplaces and shopping carts.
