Did you receive the following message? 👇
❌ Hey there,
Unfortunately your Zap ShippyPro Update Notifications could not be switched on. Please try enabling it again, and if you still experience issues, get help.
In this case you'd need to select the option as enabled, then whenever an update will be available it will work.
Indeed, if you try to make a test Zapier will directly make a call to us, and if there aren't updates the test will eventually fail.
Did you receive the following message? 👇
❌ Authentication failed: the app returned 401
Please make sure that you clicked on Zapier logo from Integrations > Plugin section, and then confirmed the connection by clicking on "Confirm" - that will activate the API key.
Once you make the connection, you should complete the configuration inside Zapier at the following link > ShippyPro Zapier APP and use the generated key to complete the setup.
