Integrating ShippyPro with Squarespace

Recommended Posts

Hi Community. I've built a simple site and store for a client: www.cuvget.com and now need to integrate it with a shipping application popular in Italy/Europe called ShippyPro. Unfortunately there is no direct shipping plugin except Shippo which doesn't handle the necessary European carriers and won't be adding them. This mean I need an API between Squarespace and ShippyPro. The name Zapier comes up often, has anyone had experience with that offering or have a suggested work-around? Appreciate your help.

You cannot integrate ShippyPro with Squarespace. Zapier cannot automate this either.

You can integrate Squarespace with any of the following services:

Note that in Europe, Squarespace cannot use carrier-calculated rates so, whichever method you use, you'll need to add the rates manually.

Thanks for the info Paul. This was a great deal more complex than I was expecting. These large international's shipping Apps can integrate with everything, ShippyPro even with Weebly! I 'll check out those links you sent and hopefully the carriers are listed (shippo doesn't list them BTW). Squarespace is seriously lacking here which is sad. if we can get this to fly I have no option other than moving the e commerce over to Shopify which is very annoying and a complete wast of time and money.

Squarespace do make an API available so that third party apps can manage shipping (after orders have been placed) so it may be worth contacting your preferred provider (ShippyPro) to ask them if they have plans to integrate their service with Squarespace.

That said, shipping is one of the top issues that I flagged in my list of commerce limitations and teams are focussed on improving shipping options. They recently (March 2023) introduced Fulfillment Profiles which has massively improved shipping options for individual products.

Thank you everyone and sorry for the late response, just come home from vacation.

Yeap Paul, I agree... for a profession service the lack of shipping options( or proper professional options is  a concern. And by professional I mean having the UI available in all languages. Only having in English is a non starter in European warehouses/ plus excluding several key European/local carriers. Really?

 

Maria, I've sent a message to Outvio. If they can add Poste Italiane, it looks like a deal.

I'll wait and hear back what they say. Thanks for that link.
