It would be a dream to be able to fulfill Kickstarter orders more smoothly, perhaps by plugging Kickstarter directly into ShipStation as a store? Currently we export a CSV file from Kickstarter, sort and tidy up the file (such as add the Item Name and SKU, or make backer change requests), and import the orders to a ShipStation Manual Store that we create for each campaign. Another small pain in the process is the disappearance of special international characters when saving the corrected CSV file in Excel (we're looking into Libre Office to avoid this issue).There are entire services built on bridging the gap between Kickstarter and pledge fulfillment, but wouldn't life be simpler if we could connect directly to ShipStation, which we already use and love! Or _ to dream even bigger _ imagine if Kickstarter started offering ShipStation as an on-board service for Project Creators. By the way, all Kickstarter payments are processed through Amazon.Thanks for your consideration! Lindsay at Distil Union
Thanks for bringing this up! We’ll keep this in mind but would like to see more interest from other users before we pursue a partnership. If you know any other users that are interested please send them here!
As developing a seamless integration typically requires cooperation from both parties, we recommend reaching out to KickStarter and expressing your interest in an integration to help expedite this process.
