Our Shopify app creates a realtime 2-way sync of product and order details. What does this mean? Install our Shopify App, choose what products you'd like us to fulfill, and when orders come through your shopify store, we receive them automatically. Our warehouses then process the orders. Once they have shipped, Whiplash updates your Shopify store with tracking information, closes the order, and updates inventory. It's that easy!
