Important Integration Notes
Before setting up this connection to EasyPost Fulfillment, please review these important notes to ensure the integration is successful:
Backordered Inventory: Please be aware that EasyPost will reject your orders if they do not have enough inventory.
- CartRover will mark rejected orders as On Hold and will automatically resend them every day around 1:00 AM PT.
- You will need to handle Order Cancellation requests manually. If buyers cancel orders in Shopping Carts, please mark those orders as Cancelled Sending To WMS in CartRover.
Product Identifier: EasyPost Fulfillment requires that when CartRover passes orders to EasyPost, CartRover identifies orders using the barcode identifier within the EasyPost system (typically the UPC). If your order sources are not able to provide this barcode, you must add your order source product identifier (e.g. SKU) as an alias to the EasyPost barcode within CartRover, so that CartRover can translate the SKU to the barcode before passing orders to EasyPost. Instructions listed HERE.
