In the resulting Application list, click ShipBob.
The Create connection pane then asks you to name the new connection.
Be sure to provide a clear and distinguishable Name as soon as the connection is created. Throughout integrator.io imports and exports, you will have the option to choose this new connection, and a unique identifier will prove helpful later when selecting among a list of connections that you’ve created.
Click Next to configure the connection.

- Click Save when you’re ready to leave the editor and finish setting up your connection.
3. Edit advanced ShipBob settings
Before continuing, you have the opportunity to provide additional configuration information, if needed, for the ShipBob connection.
4. Save and authorize
Once you have configured the ShipBob connection, you have a couple options for continuing:
- Save & authorize – click this button to test the connection, commit the new connection so that it will be available to all integrations for your account (and applied to the current source or destination app, if you created it within a flow)
- Cancel – click to exit without saving any new changes
When you select Save & authorize, you are presented with a ShipBob logon in a new browser window. Log in with your ShipBob account credentials.
If you’ve logged in successfully, the form next asks you to name the integration. Provide a name, and click Integrate.
Finally, ShipBob asks you to review and confirm permissions for the integration. Modify as needed, and click Yes, allow.
The browser window closes, and the new connection is now successfully added to your account. It will be applied to the current source or destination app, if you created it within a flow. Otherwise, you may proceed to register the connection with an integration.
