How to get started

  1. Install the extension to your Chrome browser.
  2. Right-click on the extension icon and go to Options, or open the extension and click the Settings cog. This will take you to the settings page for the extension.
  3. You will need to enter your Starshipit API Key and Subscription Key. There is a link in the page that will lead you to the Starshipit API settings page. Copy these details across and save them in the extension settings page.
  4. Enable the functionality for the platforms you use. For example, if you use Shopify to manage orders, toggle the Shopify setting. When you click Save, the extension will prompt you to allow it to access your data from Click Allow to ensure the extension works correctly.
  5. You're now setup and ready to use the extension.

When you go to Shopify, and go to the order details page for a specific order, you should now see an Open in Starshipit Sidekick button. Clicking this will reveal information about the order in Sidekick in the side panel of your browser. From this side panel, you can print the order label, open the order in Starshipit and copy the tracking number.

Supported web browsers

You can use Starshipit Chrome extensions in either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. To install the extensions in Microsoft Edge, simply head to the Chrome Web Store (instead of the Edge Add-ons website).
