    FAQ Table of Contents: 


    I set up my shopping cart connection and it doesn’t work at all

    Verify your Shopping Cart URL is pointed towards the correct site. Majority of cases the URL has the word “test” in it and this prevents the connection from functioning. The best way to establish the connection successfully is to open a private internet window and login and reconnect it from there


    I got a message that says "No items were found requiring an inventory level export"

    This is normal to see and just indicates there were no updates needed. The API updates around every 15 min.

We suggest checking the package types of the carries you have and choosing from there which best fits your needs.
