Squarespace Order Fulfillment: Integrating Fulfillment Automation for your Store

November 21, 2014 by

As of this writing, there is not a built-in solution for 3PL and fulfillment providers to automate Squarespace order fulfillment like there is for other platforms like Shopify and Magento. There are a few ways to make it work, however, depending on the type of website plan you’re running.

Squarespace Order Fulfillment Via .csv Export

The simplest way to provide your order data to a fulfillment center through Squarespace is to export the orders via .csv and email that to your fulfillment account rep. Most fulfillment companies will then be able to import that same information directly into their warehouse management system. Hopefully they also have an online order and inventory management tool that you can use to download tracking information and move that info back into your store.

This isn’t the most elegant way to go about Squarespace order fulfillment, since any type of manual effort can lead to human error, and it will require you to perform this task regularly.

Squarespace Order Fulfillment Through ShipStation

Another option is to use ShipStation, which you can connect with directly in your store. If your fulfillment center uses ShipStation, they can pull your order information directly without you having to process orders manually, cutting down on on administration time and potentially reducing errors.

This method does come with cost considerations. In order to enable this functionality, you have to be on the Squarespace business plan, which runs at $24/month. For more information about their business plan, view their guide, or give Alive a call to talk through the options in more detail.
