Additional Details about the Houzz Integration

Keep this in mind about ShipStation's integration with Houzz:

  • When updating a Houzz order as shipped, Houzz requires both a carrier and shipping service to be submitted. Since the Mark as Complete action only allows you to set the carrier and not service, ShipStation will only be able to submit the tracking number with a carrier / service set as 'Others'.

  • ShipStation is not able to send emails for Houzz orders. All customer notifications will be handled by Houzz.
