Order stash order api

Updated over a week ago

Ideally, SKULabs recommends using a "Remote Store CSV" or "Remote Store JSON" formatted file to import orders into SKULabs from custom integrations or APIs.

If you've decided to implement our order API and not the Remote Store sync, this article is for you.

When creating orders by API you may need to create an order stash. This is a sample stash for reference.

"stash" : {

"id" : "123456",
"shipping_information" : {
"name" : "John Doe",
"email" : "[email protected]",
"address" : "123 Main St",
"state" : "NY",
"city" : "New York",
"zip" : "10001",
"country" : "US",
"phone" : "+1 555-555-9643",
"method" : "Standard Shippping",
"address_type" : "residential"
"total" : 9.14,
"currency" : "USD",
"tax" : 0.64,
"shipping" : 0,
"discount" : 0,
"date" : ISODate("2020-06-10T17:30:59.690-04:00"),
"ship_by_date" : ISODate("2020-06-12T02:59:59.000-04:00"),
"deliver_by_date" : ISODate("2020-06-24T02:59:59.000-04:00"),
"items" : [
"fulfillments" : [],
"serial_numbers" : [],
"type" : "item",
"id" : "SKULabs Item ID",
"line_id" : "A consistent identifier for this line in your own database."
"price" : 8.5,
"quantity" : 1,
"lineSku" : "Optional product SKU as seen in checkout",
"lineName" : "Optional product name as seen in checkout"
"notes" : "Customer requests or notes which will appear on packing slips",

"internal_notes" : "Notes only staff can see",

"channel_status" : "Any status name that your system knows this order by.",

"pending" : false,

There is a order/add endpoint that you can use to create manual store orders in SKULabs. Below is example request payload for creating an order.


"store_id": "5857eae287169633325649fa", // Manual store ID. Required.

"order_number": "12345", // Optional. Auto increments if left blank.
