ShipStation Icon ShipStation ODBC Driver

The ShipStation ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live data from ShipStation, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access ShipStation data like you would a database - read, write, and update ShipStation Marketplaces, Orders, Products, Items, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Connect to ShipStation Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure ShipStation data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for ShipStation seamlessly integrates ShipStation data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access ShipStation data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for ShipStation in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate ShipStation Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

Use the BASIC Authentication standard to connect.

  1. Login to your ShipStation account
  2. Click on the settings icon in the upper right corner. A column menu will show up on the left
  3. Click Account -> API Settings
  4. On the API Settings page, note the API Key and API Secret.

Authenticating to ShipStation

  • APIKey: Set this to the API key from the API settings page.
  • APISecret: Set this to the Secret key from the API settings page.

You can then follow the steps below to register ShipStation data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to ShipStation data. ShipStation entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with ShipStation data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the ShipStation API.
