Verify plugin requirements
The current version of the DropStream WordPress plugin requires minimum versions of WordPress, PHP, and MySQL running on your WooCommerce backend. Review the complete list of requirements and verify that your WooCommerce store is compatible with the DropStream plugin.
Configure product SKUs
Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in WooCommerce are identical to the SKUs loaded into your warehouse management system.
Gather shipping methods
As part of the third-party fulfillment setup, a mapping must be created from each shipping method offered in the eCommerce system to the unique shipping code used by the fulfillment center.
Gather API credentials
DropStream integration requires a WooCommerce Administrative account to access the WooCommerce API. The root domain of your WooCommerce store is also required. Gather this information to enter it into your DropStream store.
Enable API access
Enter your WooCommerce credentials in your DropStream Store to enable API access.
Enable Shipment Tracking Extension
A Shipment Tracking extension is required to enable tracking numbers for WooCommerce orders. After you install the extension, DropStream will populate tracking numbers in the order when they become available.
Review order status
When you set the integration to Enabled, DropStream automatically sends orders from WooCommerce to your warehouse management system.
