Shipping Integration just for Live Rates?

Hello,

Is the Shipping Integration, under Store -> Shipping, just for live shipping rates? Or is a shipment created on the select endpoint?

For example, I'm using the FedEx integration, and I get the live, correct shipping Quotes, but when a customer checks out, does the Foxy create a shipment/label on the FedEx API?

Perhaps I need to to use something like ShipWorks? OR does anyone have any reccomendations?

Thank you for your time!

Regards,

Brett

    @brettm247,

    Good question. Currently it is just the rates that are included in our integration. We are working towards expanding our shipping functionality and integrating with partners who can also help with label creation etc.

    A custom integration could be created with any services you need though, making use of our webhooks to capture completed order information. You could also integrate with a third-party service like Easypost or Shippo to combine rates and label generation using webhooks and our custom shipping endpoint.

    There is also OrderDesk which is a third-party service which integrates with FoxyCart for more advanced order management and also has integrations with third-party services like Shipworks.

    Thanks for the response and info Adam.

    I'm currently looking at a Foxy->QuickBooks->Fedex type route, but am also going to explore the others you listed above. I'll keep my results posted here.

    I also see you have a Zapier connection:

    Could I be invited to the beta to test a Foxy -> Quickbooks Zap?

    Thanks for your time,
