3. Troubleshooting

Q. My orders have not been imported

A. The first step is to verify is that the import.php file is well located and accessible by Starshipit.  

Try to access the following URL through your browser: http://www.yourwebsite.com/admin/import.php -  if the browser is returning a 404 error please go back and redo the previous steps.  

If it returns an execution error, please contact the support team at support@starshipit.com.
