White Label MFG Integration
IN THIS GUIDE
Order Desk can import orders from your shopping cart(s), sync in your print details and then automatically send them on to White Label MFG for fulfillment. When orders are shipped, the tracking details will be sent back to Order Desk and back to your shopping cart if your store is set up for it.
This guide explains how to set up and use the White Label MFG 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 White Label MFG integration.
Alternatively, search for White Label MFG from the available integrations search.
Enter the credentials supplied to you by White Label MFG and click to connect.
Once connected, you'll have some shipment and integration settings to adjust per your preferences.

Shipping Class Match
If the shipping methods you set up in your shopping cart(s) don't match the shipping method names Tribe Socks 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 Tribe Socks 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.
