    Product Update: External Shipping System Integrations, Add Cartons to Shipped Orders, and Get Started Module

    External Shipping System Integrations

    Infoplus now has the ability to be connected with an External Shipping System. This means Infoplus can be used for your Orders, Inventory, and Warehouse management, while optionally managing your Shipping outside of Infoplus.

    Orders are pushed from Infoplus to the External Shipping System. After shipping Orders through that system, the Parcel Shipment information is then pulled back into Infoplus.  

    The first external shipping partner integrated with Infoplus is ShipStation. Look for more options to be added in the future.  

    • The new External Shipping System table allows you to define and manage the Shipping Systems that connect with Infoplus.
    • There are three new Processes on the Order table for interacting with External Shipping Systems:
      1. Send Order to External Shipping System
      2. Remove Order from External Shipping System
      3. Pull Shipments from External Shipping System

    Add Cartons to Shipped Orders

    Infoplus now allows you to add a Carton to an Order that is already shipped.  

    • Useful for the scenario where Shipping an Order has been completed in Infoplus, and it’s later discovered another Carton needs to be added to that Order.
    • Using a new process on the Order table, enter the Carton weight and dimensions.
    • Infoplus will produce a new a Parcel Label and Shipment Record, and will update the total weight and freight costs on the Order.

    Get Started Module

    The Get Started module is a step-by-step guide for getting up and running in Infoplus using your Test and Live Sites.


    • Use the module to navigate directly to the location in Infoplus where each step can be practiced in your Test Site and finalized in your Live Site.
    • Navigate to related Knowledge Base articles to help guide the process.
    • The module will be enabled by default for new client sites, but anyone can turn it on by visiting their Profile page.
    • Also added is a friendly reminder in the form of a yellow strip at the top of your Infoplus Test Site to help clearly differentiate it from the Live Site.
