If you're looking to future-proof your order records, sometimes simple is the away to go: There's no file format with greater cross-compatibility than text files. And once you set up this automation, we'll take care of the whole process for you, too. It will react to every new order placed on ShipStation, automatically copying the contents into a new text file on Dropbox so your archives stay organized.

How this ShipStation-Dropbox integration works

  1. A new order is created on ShipStation
  2. Zapier automatically adds it to a new text file on Dropbox
