Excellent news, you now can integrate Katana with ShipStation via the Extensiv Integration Manager!

ShipStation offers a fast and straightforward web-based shipping software that, well, just simply makes shipping easier. From inside ShipStation — import, manage, and ship all your orders while saving time and money on e-commerce order fulfillment.

To send or receive

Before integrating ShipStation with Katana, you should first decide — would it be better for your business to use Katana as the order source (sending orders from Katana and fulfilling them in ShipStation) or is it preferential to send orders from ShipStation to Katana, pushing along all the order related info.

Katana as an order source (Cart):

Grab sales orders from Katana and load them into ShipStation for all your order fulfillment via the Extensiv Integration Manager. This choice will make ShipStation the Warehouse Management System/Order Management System (WMS/OMS), which means that inventory is picked up from Katana and updated in ShipStation.

Katana as the order destination (WMS/OMS):

This method sends sales orders from ShipStation to Katana where the inventory is picked up and then returned to ShipStation.

Connecting Katana to Shipstation via Extensiv
