**This article pertains to configuration settings when integrating your store with ShipBob
The Start Ship Date is the date we will start to import and ship orders. When integrating your store with ShipBob we have to know which date you would like to begin shipping your orders. Often times when switching between fulfillment providers or just starting out with your store, you may have old orders that you do not want to ship or have already been shipped. The Start Ship Date will help us understand which date is best to begin importing and fulfilling those orders.
Start Ship Date is a calculation between Today's Date and the selected Start Ship Date on the store settings. This process is used for the Manual Sync and the Auto Sync process.
For instance, If Today is December 14th and the selected Start Date is December 16th (2 days in the future), we will not import any orders.
For instance, If Today is December 14th and the selected Start Date is December 14th, we will import any orders that were purchased starting December 14th(Today) and onward.
Below are some more examples how this works:
Notes: By Default we will be looking no further 120 days back.
