Here are some things you should keep in mind about ShipStation's integration with Yahoo! Store:
Unless you reconfigure your store and set a new First Order ID to Import value, Yahoo! Store orders are only exposed to ShipStation a single time. If you update the order in Yahoo! Store after it's already imported into ShipStation, ShipStation will not receive the updated information.
As a security measure, Yahoo! Store requires that Contract Token be renewed yearly. See this article from Yahoo on how to do that. Once you have a new token, you'll need to reconfigure the Yahoo! Store's connection in ShipStation.
