Sending Orders to Invition

Overview

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

Setup

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

Alternatively, search for Invition from the available integration search.

Select the environment for your connection and enter your API credentials from Invition.

To find your Invition credentials, please contact your rep from Invition. Order Desk support is not able to help with finding or resetting your Invition credentials, as they are created and provided by Invition.
