ShipStation

I use unit of measure and my quantity is wrong

When you sync orders from QuickBooks, the quantity in your shipping solution is incorrect

Problem

When you add a product with unit of measure, Connex sends the wrong quantity to ShipStation. Here is an example:

Our tool receives 1,728:

Description

When you ask QuickBooks to make a conversion, they send a different quantity to Connex. If you enter 1 box and it's 12 each, then QuickBooks sends 12.

ShipStation has no support for unit of measure. It is possible for Connex to add the product's default UOM, which is single, to ShipStation. Please contact us for details.

In this example, QuickBooks will convert the 10 to 300 because the default UOM is single.
