IN THIS GUIDE
Order Desk can pull your print on demand orders in from your shopping cart(s), sync your print details into them, and then submit them to DTG2Go. As DTG2Go fulfills the orders, the shipment details will be sent back to Order Desk and on to the original shopping cart if your store is set up for it.
This guide explains how to set up and use the DGT2Go integration.
To set up the DTG2Go integration in Order Desk, you'll first need to login to the DTG2Go Portal.
While in DTG2Go, enter either your EasyPost API key or your UPS account details, so DTG2Go can print your labels. If you skip this step, they will not accept any orders from your Order Desk store.
If you need help with this, please contact DTG2Go.
From the DTG2Go portal, you will also need to get your API Key. This can be found from the API Credentials tab.
Copy your API Key. In Order Desk, to enable the integration, click on Manage Integrations in the left sidebar. Under the Print on Demand tab, find and enable the DTG2Go integration.
Paste your API Key and select Production (Live) or Sandbox, based on the type of key you have, then click to Connect.
Once connected, you'll have a few settings to adjust in the DTG2Go integration.
This displays whether your store is in Production (live) or Sandbox (test) mode. When you need to switch from Sandbox to Production, you can disconnect from DTG2Go by clicking the Disconnect button at the bottom of the integration settings, then reconnect with your new Production credentials.
Default Mail Class
Select the default mail class you want DTG2Go to use. The shipping method you select will be used for all orders where the method on the order does not match any of DTG2Go's shipping method names.
If you need to apply specific methods for certain orders, match your method names to DTG2Go's names in the Shipping Class Match section below.
After Import, Move To
Select the folder you want orders to be moved into after they are successfully sent to DTG2Go.
You can use one of the default folders already in your store or create your own. Read the Working with Folders guide for more information.
After Shipment, Move To
Select the folder you want orders to be moved into as DTG2Go sends shipment details back.
If Canceled, Move To
Select the folder you want orders to be moved into if they are canceled at DTG2Go.
Default Return Address
Set your default return address for DTG2Go to use on your order shipments.
If you need to customize the return address for certain orders, you can save different return addresses to your Store Settings and then use a rule to set the return address to specific orders. If a return address is not added to the order, the default address set here in the DTG2Go settings will be used.
For information on adding additional return addresses and applying them to specific orders with a rule, read the Store Settings guide.
For more information on what these product settings within the DTG2Go integration are for, please refer to the Print on Demand Product Settings guide.
Shipping Class Match
If the shipping methods you set up in your shopping cart(s) don't match the shipping method names DTG2Go uses, they won't know what methods you intend for them to use. When this happens, the default mail class applied above will be used instead for all of your orders.
To tell DTG2Go what methods you want them to use, you will need to match your method names to theirs. This can be done in the shipping class match section. For detailed instructions on setting this up, please read through the shipping class match guide.

Initially, getting your orders ready to send to DTG2Go is going to take some time before everything is in place for it to happen automatically.
