Many ShipStation customers contacted us lately and asked to add integration between the Advanced Shipment Tracking (AST) to the ShipStation Integration for WooCommerce plugin and when a label is created on ShipStation, to automatically add the tracking information from ShipStation into the Shipment Tracking order meta instead of to the order notes.
We are happy to announce that we added this automation to the Advanced Shipment Tracking Pro (AST PRO). Once you install the AST PRO, you can enable the integration and once you do, each time you will generate a shipping label on ShipStation and the plugin updates the shipping information back to WooCommerce,the tracking information will automatically populate into the shipment tracking order meta fields, the order status will update to Shipped (Completed) and the shipping confirmation order email will include the Tracking information. If you connected TrackShip to your store, the tracking info will be sent to TrackShip and you will have automatic fulfilment process.
Please note that the in some cases the carrier name that you get from ShipStation will not match the provider name on AST’s Shipping Providers list and the tracking link will not be generated, in this case, you can easily map the shipping provider names, just copy the name that is added by ShipStation and navigate to AST’s shipping providers list, search for the provider, click on edit and add the name you get to the API Name field and save, this will map the shipping provider names.
