OPT OnDemand Integration
IN THIS GUIDE
With Order Desk, you can pull in your print on demand orders from your shopping cart(s), sync your print details into the orders, and then submit them to the OPT OnDemand integration. As your orders are fulfilled, OPT OnDemand will send the shipment details back into Order Desk. If your store is set up for it, those details will be sent back to your customer or your shopping cart.
This guide will cover how you can set up and use the OPT OnDemand integration.
To get started, click on Manage Integrations in the left sidebar. Under the Print on Demand tab, find and enable the OPT OnDemand integration.
Alternatively, search for OPT onDemand from the available integrations.
Once enabled, select Production (live) or Staging (test) and enter the username and password that OPT OnDemand has provided for you and click to connect to the integration.
If you need to switch between a test connection and a live connection, you will need to disconnect the integration and set it up again with the right credentials for the new environment.
To disconnect, click the Disconnect button (not the Disable Integration button) at the bottom of the integration settings.
To find your OPT OnDemand credentials, please contact your rep from OPT OnDemand. Order Desk support is not able to help with finding or resetting your OPT OnDemand credentials, as they are created and provided by OPT OnDemand.
Once connected, you’ll be presented with a few settings to apply your preferences.
Default Shipping Class
Select the shipping class you would like OPT OnDemand to use for your orders. Options are Standard or Express.
