Then select export orders to export your chosen orders.
Occasionally the app may encounter an error when trying to export an order from ShopWired to Kashflow. When this happens the details of which order failed to export and the reason for it will be displayed in the 'Export Errors' table:

If you're unable to fix the error please contact us.
