Inventory Status â€“ You can query your inventory status globally, by region, or by warehouse. Find out when inventory will be available for products that are out of stock.
Configuration (3 steps)
The Shipwire plug-in for Pinnacle Cart is a lightweight script that “listens” for new orders, which it then moves to a file that Shipwire can pick-up. There is a help file included with the module to assist with installation.
Step 1: Add the Shipwire plugin in your Pinnacle Cart account
- Download and install the Shipwire Pinnacle Cart plugin.
- After installing, you will see Shipwire Fulfillment Service under Marketing > Cart Plug-ins > Data Export.
- Click Shipwire Fulfillment Service. Enter your Shipwire Username, Password, and Key. Save Changes.
Step 2: Configure the Pinnacle Cart Sell Tool in your Shipwire Account
- If you haven’t added Pinnacle Cart as a sell tool, add it now so that it shows up under Sell in your Shipwire menu. For guidance getting started, click here.
- Select the Pinnacle Cart Sell Tool.
- Enter your Shipwire e-mail address, Pinnacle Cart Secret Key, and Pinnacle Cart Store Domain Name. Check all the features you’d like to enable. Save changes.
- Go to the Control Panel tab and enter your first order ID to start exporting. Pinnacle Cart uses sequential numeric order IDs. Choose the payment status that you want Shipwire to fulfill upon.
- Click Start Import Orders. This will check if the order ID is valid and will confirm the connection is established. After the initial connection, Shipwire will import new orders hourly from your cart.
Step 3: Test Order Submission

- Shipwire will pick up this order by running the hourly commer_order script.
- Now change the order’s payment status to “Received” (or whatever Order Payment Status you selected during setup).
- Shipwire will pick up the status change and fulfill the order
- Once Shipwire gets the tracking number for the fulfilled order) this information will be sent to your Pinnacle Cart.
