This guide explains how to set up and use the Spoke Custom integration and the features available.
To enable the integration, click on Manage Integrations in the left sidebar. Under the Print on Demand tab, find and enable the Spoke Custom integration.
Once enabled, enter the credentials provided to you by Spoke Custom and click to connect.

If you need to customize the return address for certain orders, you can save different return addresses to your Store Settings and use a rule to set the return address on specific orders. If a return address is not added to the order, the default address set here in the Spoke Custom 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.
If the order does not have a phone number on it, the Shipper Phone Number is used.
For more information on what these product settings within the Spoke Custom integration are for, please refer to the Print on Demand Product Settings guide.
Shipping Class Match
The shipping methods that you have set up in your shopping cart(s) may not match the methods that Spoke Custom uses. To make sure your shipping preferences are sent through to Spoke Custom with each order, match your methods to theirs in the shipping class match feature.
To learn in more detail about how to set up your shipping class matches, see the shipping class match guide.
