Sending Orders to Blackfish


Order Desk can import orders from your shopping cart(s), sync in your print details and then automatically send them on to Blackfish 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 Blackfish integration.


To connect to Blackfish, click on the Manage Integrations link under the Integrations menu in the left sidebar, and under the Print on Demand tab find and enable Blackfish.
