Sending Orders to Print Geek

Overview

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

Setup

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

Alternatively, search for Print Geek from the available integration search.

Select Production (live) or Staging (test) as the environment, and enter your API Key from Print Geek and click to complete the connection.

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