Learn how to connect MoonClerk to Pirate Ship

Updated over a week ago
  • Subscription Shipping Made Easy: Pirate Ship's MoonClerk integration makes it simple to ship your subscription orders. It only takes a minute to connect the platforms and get started. This article shows you how!

Connecting MoonClerk to Pirate Ship

Step 1: Generate an API Key in MoonClerk

  • API Key: On the top right of your MoonClerk dashboard, click Account > Settings, then click API Key

A screenshot showing the MoonClerk Settings where the API Key is shown. A red arrow points this API Key towards a screenshot of the Pirate Ship 'Connect New MoonClerk Account' set up page, where there's a box that says 'API Key' in it.

Generate an API key and copy it.

Step 2: Add the MoonClerk Integration in Pirate Ship

  • Connect MoonClerk in Pirate Ship: From the Ship page in Pirate Ship, click Import from Integrations, then click MoonClerk (if you've already added another integration in Pirate Ship, go to Settings > Integrations > Connect New Source instead):

  • Configure YARrrr Shipping: Once you paste the API key in, you can select which Subscription Statuses you want Pirate Ship to import. Most businesses only want to ship to Active subscribers, but you can configure it however you need 😉

    • Recommended: Pirate Ship can lock subscriptions that you've shipped to recently, to prevent you from accidentally shipping a duplicate subscription within a certain period. Just turn on the feature and select the period that works for you!

Step 3: Start shipping!

  • Import Orders & Buy Labels: Once you've saved the connection, you're all set!

    • On the Ship page in Pirate Ship click the Import from MoonClerk button (or it will say Import from Integrations if you have multiple platforms connected).

    • You'll see a list of your subscriptions, which you can filter, sort, and search through, and create batches of labels from:

  • Adjusting YARrrr Connection Settings: By default, Pirate Ship displays all the Plans you have in MoonClerk that are Status "Active," but you can adjust that if you need to in Settings > Integrations > MoonClerk.

  • ​Filter YARrrr Import Grid: Click any column header to open the filter menu, open the Columns section, and choose which data you'd like to display. You can display any Custom Fields you added to your MoonClerk Payment Form, as well as data like Coupons.

    • Filtering the data on your Import grid makes it super easy to separate batches of your variations if they have different sizes/weights that you need to purchase different postage for. 

    • Note: Subscriptions with no Custom Form Field of the type Address will be skipped. There's no address data, so there's nothing to buy a shipping label with! ​
