Sending Orders to Amplifier

Overview

Order Desk can import orders from your shopping cart(s) and send them to Amplifier for fulfillment.

This guide explains how to set up and use the Amplifier integration for both regular and print on demand fulfillment.

Setup

To connect to Amplifier, click on the Manage Integrations link in the left sidebar and under the Fulfillment tab find and enable the Amplifier integration.

Once enabled, enter your Amplifier credentials to connect. 

The API key can be created on your Account Page in Amplifier on the API Keys tab. Order Source Code will be provided by Amplifier.

Integration Settings

Default Mail Class

Choose the shipping class you want Amplifier to use for your orders.

If you need to apply specific methods for certain orders, match your method names to the names Amplifier uses 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 Amplifier.

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 Amplifier sends shipment details back to Order Desk.

Automatically Send Imported Orders to Amplifier

If selected, every order that is added to Order Desk will automatically be sent to Ampifier.

Select this setting only if all orders will be sent to Amplifier. If any orders will not be sent, or if you need a delay between when an order is imported into Order Desk and when it is sent to Amplifier do  not select this.

Currency Code

Set the currency code for your orders.

Partial Shipments

Enable this setting to allow Amplifier to send partial shipments.

Sync Amplifier Inventory

Enable this setting if you want your inventory stock counts to be pulled in from Amplifier.

For more information, see the How to Work with Inventory Counts guide.

Product Settings

Product Code Match and Skip

For more information on how Product Code Match and Product Code Skip work, please read the Product Code guide.

Gift Message Field

If your shopping cart sends gift messages through to Order Desk, enter the name of the checkout data field where the message is stored in the gift message field to have the message sent to Amplifier.

Checkout data fields can be found in the top right corner of an order page:

In this example, the field name is "message_from_buyer". Put the field name, exactly as it is on your orders, into the gift message field box:

If the message exists on an order, it will be attached to the first product in the order sent to Amplifier.

If you are unfamiliar with checkout data, see the How to Work with Checkout Data guide.

Inventory Location Match

If you only want to send certain items to Amplifier, you can set the inventory location name from the item in this field. Orders with items that don't have an exact match will not be submitted to Amplifier.

To avoid confusion about which items in which orders are being sent for fulfillment, it is generally better to split orders than to use this field. If you do choose to use this field, please be careful that your inventory location names match exactly.

Shipping Class Match

If the shipping methods you set up in your shopping cart(s) don't match the shipping method names AmplifierA 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 Amplifier 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.

Sending Orders to Amplifier

Regular Fulfillment

If you are sending regular orders for fulfillment, make sure the product SKU on your items coming in from your shopping cart matches the product SKU that Amplifier has for the same item. 

If it doesn't match, use the product code match feature or code replace to tell Order Desk the SKU that Amplifier needs to know.

Print on Demand Fulfillment

For a detailed walkthrough on how to set up your items for Amplifier, please take a few minutes to read through the Print on Demand Fulfillment guide. Once you understand how this process works, you can set up your Order Desk store to automatically prepare and send your orders to Amplifier for you.

The following fields can be set as variations or item metadata for each order item.

Field Name Field Description
print_sku Amplifier's SKU of the item variant being ordered.
print_url Link to the artwork file.
