Shipstation API Python Bindings

This package provides the basic API bindings for interacting with ShipStation via Python.

Connecting to ShipStation

pyshipstation provides the class ShipStation to instantiate a new connection to ShipStation.

from shipstation.api import *

api_key = '[your key]'
api_secret = '[your secret]'

ss = ShipStation(key=api_key, secret=api_secret)

Sending Orders to ShipStation

Once you have a ShipStation object and a ShipStationOrder ready, you can send the order to the ShipStation API like so:

ss.add_order(...)
ss.submit_orders();

ShipStationOrder

Orders can be provided using the ShipStationOrder class.

The constructor accepts both order_key and order_number, but in practice only order_number is actually required. ShipStation will generate a unique key for you on submission.

id = '[a reference number]'
ss_order = ShipStationOrder(order_number=id)

Setting The Order Status

Order status is set using the set_status method.

ss_order.set_status('awaiting_shipment')

Setting Customer Details

Customer username and email can be set with the set_customer_deails method.

ss_order.set_customer_details(
    username='foobar',
    email='foo@bar.org'
)

Setting The Shipping and Billing Addresses

Addresses are represented as a ShipStationAddress instance, and set using the set_shipping_address or set_billing_address method.

shipping_address = ShipStationAddress(...)
billing_address = ShipStationAddress(...)

ss_order.set_shipping_address(shipping_address)
ss_order.set_billing_address(billing_address)

Setting The Package Dimensions and Weight

Package dimensions are represented as a ShipStationContainer instance, and set using the set_dimensions method.

container = ShipStationContainer(...)
ss_order.set_dimensions(container)

Adding Line Items

Line items are represented as a ShipStationItem instance, and are added individually using the add_item method.

item = ShipStationItem(...)
ss_order.add_item(item)

ShipStationWeight

This corresponds to the Weight model in ShipStation, and accepts units and value.

weight = ShipStationWeight(units='ounces', value=12)

ShipStationContainer

This corresponds to the Dimensions model in ShipStation.

Weight is represented as a ShipStationWeight instance and added via the set_weight method.

weight = ShipStationWeight(...)
ss_container = ShipStationContainer(
    units='inches',
    length=5,
    width=5,
    height=5
)
ss_container.set_weight(weight)

ShipStationItem

This corresponds to the Product model in ShipStation.

Weight is represented as a ShipStationWeight instance and added via the set_weight method.

weight = ShipStationWeight(...)
ss_item = ShipStationItem(
    sku='[your sku]',
    name='[item name]',
    image_url='[item image url]',
    quantity=1,
    unit_price=10
)
ss_item.set_weight(weight)

ShipStationCustomsItem

This corresponds to the CustomsItem model in ShipStation.

ss_customs_item = ShipStationCustomsItem(
    description='Satan\'s horns',
    quantity=1,
    value=Decimal('10'),
    harmonized_tariff_code='tariff code',
    country_of_origin='US'
)

ShipStationInternationalOptions

This corresponds to the InternationalOptions model in ShipStation.

customs_item objects are represented as ShipStationCustomsItem instances and added via the add_customs_item method.

customs_item = ShipStationCustomsItem(...)
ss_intl_options = ShipStationInternationalOptions(
    contents='merchandise',
    non_delivery='return_to_sender'
)
ss_intl_options.add_customs_item(customs_item)
ss_order.set_international_options(ss_intl_options)

contents can be one of:

  • merchandise
  • documents
  • gift
  • returned_goods
  • sample

delivery_options can be one of:

  • return_to_sender
  • treat_as_abandoned

ShipStationAddress

This corresponds to the Address model in ShipStation

ss_shipping_address = ShipStationAddress(
    name='[customer name]',
    street1='[street line 1]',
    street2='[street line 2]',
    street3='[street line 3]',
    city='[city]',
    state='[state]',
    postal_code=['zip code'],
    country='[two letter country code]'
)

Get existing ShipStation Orders

You can get existing orders from ShipStation with parameter filtering, and do what you wish with the Response object returned.

response = ss.fetch_orders()

The allowed filter list is:

    customer_name,
    item_keyword,
    create_date_start,
    create_date_end,
    modify_date_start,
    modify_date_end,
    order_date_start,
    order_date_end,
    order_number,
    order_status,
    payment_date_start,
    payment_date_end,
    store_id,
    sort_by,
    sort_dir,
    page,
    page_size.

Syntax for using a filter:

response = ss.fetch_orders(parameters_dict={'order_status': 'shipped', 'page': '2'})

The Response object has some handy methods and attributes. For example, you can get the output in a text form with response.text, or in JSON with response.json(). Please refer to (Requests' documentation)[https://2.python-requests.org/en/master/user/quickstart/#response-content] for more details.
