Integration of Airtable and ShipStation

    What is Airtable?

Airtable is a cloud-based, collaborative tool for managing data. It's similar to Excel, Google Sheet, or even Salesforce. In comparison to the other tools listed above, Airtable focuses on collaboration. With Airtable, multiple users can access one file and make edits at the same time. For this reason, Airtable is often used for inventory management, sales pipeline tracking, or project management.Airtable uses the power of relational databases to store data. In a relational database, data is stored in tables along with fields that describe the data. Each record in a table is called a row and each field in a table is called an attribute. Rows are identified by an id attribute whereas fields are identified by name attributes.For example, consider a table that tracks the items in your pantry. The table might contain a column for the item name, another column for the quantity, and a third column for the date it was purchased. Each row would represent a single item in the pantry. In this case, id would be the name of the item and quantity and date would be attributes of the item.

    What is ShipStation?

ShipStation is a warehouse management tool that allows you to manage all aspects of your business from one platform. You can use ShipStation to create labels, print packing slips, and ship orders via USPS or UPS. You can also integrate ShipStation with other shipping carriers like FedEx, DHL, and others. The ShipStation API allows you to automate many of these processes using ShipStation's service as your warehouse management system (WMS.

    Integration of Airtable and ShipStation

There are three ways to integrate Airtable and ShipStation:

  • Through the Shopify App Store
  • Through Appy Pie Connect

3. Through the ShipStation APIIn order to connect Airtable and Shopify, you need to buy an app from the Shopify App Store. Most apps are paid but some are free or discounted. The cheapest app that integrates Airtable and Shopify is the Sales & Orders app which costs $9/month or $99/year. This app allows you to sync orders between Shopify and Airtable as well as add new orders from within Airtable. This app has over 200 five star reviews on the Shopify App Store so it seems to be very reliable.While not free or cheap, this integration method has several advantages over the alternatives:

  • It's easy to set up and doesn't require any code knowledge
  • You don't have to worry about API limits

3. It's more secure than using Appy Pie Connect or the API because it requires a password in order to loginThe main disadvantage of using this app is cost. If you're only using Airtable for inventory management then it may be worthwhile investment. If you want to track other information then you may be better off with a different option.Another option is using Appy Pie Connect to integrate Airtable and Shopify. There are two ways to do this using Appy Pie Connect:

  • Using the Sales Orders app

2. Using Notifier appAs you can see from the picture below, there are many different apps that allow you to use Appy Pie Connect to connect Airtable and Shopify. Many people have had success with these apps but they are not as stable as using the built-in integration through the Shopify App Store. Additionally, many of these apps charge a monthly fee which can really add up over time.The final method for integrating Airtable and Shopify is using the ShipStation API. This method requires some coding knowledge but it allows you to make requests directly to ShipStation's servers instead of going through Appy Pie Connect. This means that you will not have to worry about API limits but you will need to set up a server-side script to handle requests from Airtable's API. Because this method is more complex than other methods, we'll go into more detail about it later in this post.The main advantages of using Appy Pie Connect or the API include:

  • You don't have to pay for an app every month like you do with Appy Pie Connect or the Shopify App Store integration method
  • You don't have to worry about API limits like you do with Appy Pie Connect or the Shopify App Store integration method

3. You can easily get around IP restrictions set by ShipStation if you're not a customer yet by using Appy Pie Connect or setting up your own server-side scripts using the APIThe main disadvantage of using Appy Pie Connect or the API is that these solutions do not provide an easy way to update products if they change names or SKUs. Additionally, if you want to update stock levels or mark items as out of stock then you will need some sort of script that handles those requests as well. We'll go into more detail about how this works later in this post.If you do decide to use these methods then it may be easier to start with Appy Pie Connect because it's easier to get started with and doesn't require much technical knowledge on your part. If you want more advanced customization then you can move onto setting up your own server-side scripts using the ShipStation API.

    Benefits of Integration of Airtable and ShipStation

There are many benefits associated with integrating Airtable and Shopify but most of them relate back to inventory management or project management. For example, let's say that you run an online shop selling plush toys. When a customer buys one of your plush toys then it can be shipped directly from your warehouse via USPS, UPS, or FedEx through ShipStation's integrations with those carriers. However, what happens when one of those carriers changes their policy regarding shipping toys? This could require you change the charges associated with shipping those plush toys or even stop selling certain products altogether if they cause too much trouble for your customers when shipping via USPS or UPS.With an integrated system like Airtable and Shopify, it would be easy to stop selling specific plush toys by marking them as out of stock within Airtable. Then when someone tries to purchase one of those plush toys through your store then they will receive an error message letting them know that they are out of stock until further notice. Additionally, if USPS changes their policy regarding shipping plush toys then you could easily update your shipping costs within Airtable through scripting instead of manually changing each individual product within Shopify.

While there are many benefits associated with integrating Airtable and Shopify, there are some drawbacks as well:

  • Learning curve - If you're new to programming then integrating Airtable and Shopify can be difficult because it requires some level of coding ability in order to properly integrate them together without issues like getting blocked by API limits or running into errors caused by bad requests made through Appy Pie Connect or its alternatives. That being said, if you already have some coding experience then integrating these two tools should be straightforward for you because it involves making HTTP requests to ShipStation's servers through their API using Python 2 instead of using Appy Pie Connect which uses JavaScript for its solutions.
  • Cost - While free apps exist on the Shopify App Store like Order Printer Pro they only solve a small subset of integration problems that might arise with connecting Airtable and Shopify together. In order to solve most problems related to inventory management or project management you will need an app from the Shopify App Store which will cost either $9/month or $99/year depending on which app you choose. This can add up over time especially if you want to integrate other tools such as Mailchimp or Quickbooks Online into your solution as well!  Additionally, if you choose the cheaper plan then there may be limits on how much data can be pulled into Airtable at once from Shopify so these limits should be considered before making any purchases as well! For instance, if one product has 100 SKUs then those SKUs will need to be broken up into smaller chunks before being synced into Airtable so that Shopify doesn't hit its daily limit on how much data can be pulled into Airtable at once from Shopify!  This is something that may need custom scripting depending on how many products need breaking up in order to work around this limit!
  • Security - While security isn't necessarily an issue when dealing with Appy Pie Connect or its alternatives because Airtable stores passwords securely behind their servers (so your credentials aren't sent across the internet unencrypted. then security becomes a bigger concern when dealing with the API directly because someone could potentially gain access by sniffing network traffic! This is why it's important to set up
