Anyone have experience integrating Shipworks.com to X-Cart? Anyone with experiences to share using the service?

Yes, we have had a good experience with Shipworks so far. We have been using it with X-cart for 3 months now without a single problem.

The integration was surprisingly easy. It was just a matter of uploading a single file, provided by the Shipworks website, to the X-cart admin directory.

We have found Shipworks to be an excellent offline order and customer manager. We were already using it for our eBay stores as well, so it is nice to have everything on one screen when fulfilling orders and handling customer emails.

I highly recommend it for small to medium volume sellers.

Looks very interesting. Do you know if there is a way to import a scale weight reading to set the postage?

It does indeed import scale readings when shipping a package. I use USPS flat rate boxes mostly, so that is not a feature I take advantage of currently, but it might come in handy at a later date.

The software has a 30 day free trial, I recommend just downloading it and giving it a shot. I fell in love with it immediately. I have it interfaced with our Endicia account and it updates the online status of our eBay and X-cart orders to mark them as shipped. It also handles sending the confirmation of shipment emails and the importing of tracking numbers into both eBay and X-cart's order management systems to allow easy tracking by the customer.

I hate to sound like a fanboy, but this software rocks in my opinion.

Thanks William! I am bringing up a new 4.4.3 store and have been using Workingman for a few years now on my 4.1.9 store. Not terrible, but it only does USPS.

I will download and try this because shipping has been the single worst dragon I fight. We use a fulfillment company and they cannot use anything that is at all complicated. This almost seems to be too good to be real. 8O

Thanks! Bob

We love shipworks on our other shopping systems (interspire etc) however their new plugin shipworks3.php does not work at all with Xcart 4.6.0

It redirects to home.php every time you link to it - there is no XML output.

If we comment out the line $login=$username; then we get XML output but shipworks software will not connect just throws up a bad user/pass error

I suspect their module is designed for 4.5.x as 4.6.0 had many many changes with regards to authentication.

From their code:
$storedPassword = text_decrypt($user_data["password"]);

They try to decrypt the password and check it manually - Xcart 4.6.0 will just say f**k off.


We have contacted their tech support but not really got anywhere so far - i'll keep you posted.
