Overview

Order Desk can send orders directly to Infoplus then pull shipment details back into your orders here and send them to your shopping carts, if applicable.

This guide covers the setup, settings and special features with the Infoplus integration.

Setup

To enable the integration, click on the Manage Integrations link in the Integrations menu in the left sidebar. Under the Fulfillment tab, find and enable Infoplus. 

Alternatively, search for Infoplus from the available integration search.

In the integration page, add your Infoplus credentials to connect.

Please note that Order Desk isn’t able to help find or reset your credentials, as they can only be provided by Infoplus.

Integration Settings

After Import, Move To

Select the folder orders should be moved to after they are sent to Infoplus from Order Desk. Typically this is set to Prepared, but any custom folder can be used.

After Shipment, Move To

Select the folder orders should be moved to when Infoplus sends tracking details back to Order Desk.

Carrier ID

 Enter the ID of the default carrier you'll be using.

Product Code Match

Product Code Match

If the SKUs in your shopping cart don't match the SKUs Infoplus has for your products, you can match them to each other here. More information on how to set this up can be found in the product code match guide.

To create bundles, refer to the product code match bundles section of the guide.

Product Code Skip

To prevent certain SKUs from being sent to Infoplus, add them to the product code skip field. Any items included here will not be sent through with your orders. Add one SKU per line.

Inventory Location Match

If you only want to send certain items to Infoplus, you can set the inventory location name from the item in this field. Orders with items that don't have an exact match will not be submitted.

To avoid confusion about which items in which orders are being sent for fulfillment, it is generally better to split orders than to use this field. If you do choose to use this field, please be careful that your inventory location names match exactly.

Sending Orders to Infoplus

The following fields can be set as checkout data or order metadata to specify what gets sent to Infoplus on each order. If you have any questions on which of these to include, check with your Infoplus rep. 

Field Name Field Value
carrier_id If different from the default value from the integration settings, use carrier_id to set a specific carrier ID on orders to specify which to use on each order.
lob_id Add a Line of Business ID to be sent with your order.
warehouse_id Use this to specify a warehouse to pull from on an order-by-order basis.
gift_message Include a gift message along with your order.
service_type_id Include if you have a service type that needs specifying with your order.
ship_via Include which shipment service you'll be sending the order through.

order_source_id Enter an order source ID number.

If you are unfamiliar with checkout data, see the How to Work with Checkout Data guide.
