ShipStream is highly configurable and it can be overwhelming at first so we have chosen what we think are "sane defaults" for most configurations. However, a few items should be immediately configured to get you going. See Configuration Basics for more information on how configuration works in ShipStream.
Go to System > Configuration, and click the General tab in the left side menu under the General section. Expand the 2nd pane (Brand Information) and fill out the fields shown below prior to submitting orders.
Warehouse Origin Address
ShipStream will not allow orders to be processed until the Warehouse Origin Address has been set for the specific warehouse originating the order.
Go to System > Configuration, scroll down to find the Shipping Settings in the left side menu under the Sales section.
Expand the 2nd pane (Origin Address) and fill out the warehouse address to set an origin for the orders.
Enable Shipping Carriers
While in System > Configuration, click the Shipping Methods tab in the left side menu under the Sales section. Expand the pane for the shipping carrier you wish to enable and select Yes in the "Enabled" drop down menu.
In addition to enabling a carrier, before you can use one that requires an online account you must add your shipping account information. See Shipping Accounts.
