Air Waves Integration
IN THIS GUIDE
Order Desk can import orders from your shopping cart(s), sync in your print details and then automatically send them to Air Waves for fulfillment. When orders are shipped, the tracking details will be sent back to Order Desk and back to your shopping cart.
This guide explains how to set up and use the Air Waves integration.
To enable the integration, click on Manage Integrations in the left sidebar. Under the Print on Demand tab, find and enable the Air Waves integration.
Alternatively, search for Air Waves from the available integrations search.
Enter your Air Waves credentials and click to connect. If you're not sure of your credentials, please contact your rep from Air Waves. Order Desk support is not able to help with finding or resetting your Air Waves credentials, as they are created and provided by Air Waves.
Once connected, you'll have some shipment and integration settings to adjust per your preferences.
After Import, Move To
Select the folder you want orders to be moved into after they are successfully sent to Air Waves.
You can use one of the default folders already in your store or create your own. Read the Working with Folders guide for more information.
After Shipment, Move To
Select the folder you want orders to be moved into as Air Waves sends shipment details back.
Default Return Address
Set your default return address for Air Waves to use on your order shipments.
If you need to customize the return address for certain orders, you can save different return addresses to your Store Settings and use a rule to set the return address on specific orders. If a return address is not added to the order, the default address set here in the Air Waves 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.
For more information on what these product settings within the Air Waves integration are for, please refer to the Print on Demand Product Settings guide.
