- Integrate Starshipit with Magento2, so you can import Magento2 orders.
- Starshipit will write back tracking information when you print a label (or when you manifest, depending upon your settings).
- There are two ways to connect your Magento2 store with Starshipit. Token based authentication is recommended especially if you are using two-factor authentication on your store.
- As of Magento 2.4 two-factor authentication is enabled by default on Magento2. This means you will need to use token authentication to connect with Starshipit.
1. Set up access for Starshipit to Magento2
Token Authentication (recommended)
Create a access token.
- Log into your Magento2 admin page.
- At the very bottom left of the sidebar click System > Extensions > Integrations.
- Click Add New Integration.
- Enter Starshipit in the Name field.
- Enter your admin password in the Your Password field. Leave all other fields blank.
- Click the API tab.
- Under the Resource Access dropdown select All.
- Click Save in the top right of the screen.
- You will then be taken back to the Integrations page.
- Click Allow.
- A dialog will appear with a Consumer Key, Consumer Secret, Access Token, and Access Token Secret.
- Only the Access Token is required. Copy your Access Token and click Done.
Note: Skip this section if you have completed the steps above for Token Authentication

3. (Optional) Import delivery information
Give your customers the option to choose between Signature on Delivery and Authority to Leave during the checkout process. To set this up, create the following custom fields:
- delivery_comment (String max 100) for the delivery instruction
- authority_to_leave: values can be 0, 1, true, false, yes or no
- signature_required: values can be 0, 1, true, false, yes or no
NOTE: To add the file to /rest/V1/orders/ you need to add them to the order search Criteria API.
