Define your products in Shipwire

In order to successfully setup Shipwire to work with SmithCart, your products must share the same SKU information on both sides.  For example, if you created a product in SmithCart with a SKU “123ABC” you need to have the same SKU in your Shipwire account.

Note: To meet Shipwire requirements; SKU names can consist of letters, numbers and/or dashes, but no spaces.
 
 

Checkout

In SmithCart, you can retrieve real time shipping rates from Shipwire as follows:
  • Add products to your cart and click the checkout button to be redirected to the cart page.
  • On the cart page, enter your shipping address
  • Select the desired shipping method and click the “Calculate Shipping” button.
  • The cart will call the Shipwire Rate API and retrieve real time shipping rates.
 
Shipwire will determine the closest warehouse to ship from to return the best shipping cost to the customer.  Shipwire will return to your cart up to 5 shipping values (1 Day, 2 Day, Ground Shipping, International, and Freight).
