Monster Digital Integration
IN THIS GUIDE
Order Desk can pull your print on demand orders in from your shopping cart(s), sync your print details into them, and then submit them to Monster Digital. As Monster Digital fulfills the orders, the shipment details will be pulled back into Order Desk and sent back to the original shopping cart if your store is set up for it.
This guide explains how to set up the Monster Digital integration and covers the settings and features available with it.
To connect to your Monster Digital account, click on Manage Integrations in the left sidebar. Under the Print on Demand tab, look for and enable the Monster Digital integration.
Alternatively, search for Monster Digital from the available integrations search.
Once enabled, enter your Monster Digital API credentials.
Once connected, you'll have some integration settings to adjust per your preferences:
Basic Settings & Default Return Address
Default Shipping Class
Select your preferred shipping class. The shipping method selected will be used for all orders sent to Monster Digital unless, where different, the shipping method on the order matches Monster Digital's method name exactly.
If you need Monster Digital to use a specific shipping method on an order by order basis rather than defaulting to the settings here, set your preferences in the Shipping Class Match section.
After Import, Move To
The folder set here is where orders will move after they are successfully sent to Monster Digital.
You can choose the default Prepared folder for this, or create your own folders in your Store Settings. Read the Working with Folders guide for more information.
After Shipment, Move To
The folder set here is where orders will move after Monster Digital sends back fulfillment and tracking details.
If Canceled, Move To
The folder the order should be moved to if canceled at Monster Digital.
Default Return Address
Set the default return address that Monster Digital should use on your shipments.
If you need to customize the return address for certain orders, you can save different return addresses to your Store Settings and then use a rule to set the return address to specific orders. If a return address is not added to the order, the default address set here in the Monster Digital 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.
Default Packing Slip Logo
If using Monster Digital's supplied packing slips, add a link to your logo here. This can be changed on a per order basis, details below.
Packing Slip Text URL 1 & 2
If using Monster Digital's supplied packing slips, add two links for images to be included for text areas on the packing slip. This can be changed on a per order basis, details below.
Send Customer Email Address to Monster Digital
If you would like the customer's email address to be sent with the order details, select this option.
For more information on what the product settings within the Monster Digital integration do, please read the Print on Demand Product Settings guide.
Shipping Class Match
If the shipping methods you set up in your shopping cart(s) don't match the shipping method names Monster Digital uses, they won't know what methods you intend for them to use. When this happens, the default mail classes applied above will be used instead for all of your orders.
To tell Monster Digital 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.
