Once connected, you will have some settings and preferences to apply to the integration for your store.
Default Mail Class
Choose the default mail class you want to use for your orders. This shipping class will be used for any orders sent to NP Fulfilment that don't have their shipping method mapped to NP Fulfilment method in the shipping class match section.
To set up more than one shipping method, scroll down to the shipping class match section for instructions.
After Import, Move To
Select the folder orders should be moved to after they are sent to NP Fulfilment 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 NP Fulfilment sends tracking details back to Order Desk about them.
Automatically Send Imported Orders to NP Fulfilment
Select this option if you want all imported orders to be sent to NP Fulfilment.
If you have orders that you do not want sent to NP Fulfilment, do not enable this option. You will need to create rules to submit your orders to NP Fulfilment instead.
Order Desk can pull in your inventory counts from NP Fulfilment if this setting is enabled.
Sync Update Interval
Choose how often you would like Order Desk to check NP Fulfilment for inventory reports.
Inventory Location Name
If you want to set a specific inventory location name for the products you have at NP Fulfilment, set that name here. As NP Fulfilment sends back reports, your custom name will be added as the location.
Product Code Match
Product Code Match
Match SKUs from your shopping cart to the SKUs NP Fulfilment uses with product code match. 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 NP Fulfilment, 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.
Gift Message Field
If your shopping cart sends gift messages through to Order Desk, enter the name of the checkout data field where the message is stored in the gift message field to have the message sent to NP Fulfilment.
Checkout data fields can be found in the top right corner of an order page:
In this example, the field name is "message_from_buyer". Put the field name, exactly as it is on your orders, into the gift message field box:
If the message exists on an order, it will be attached to the first product in the order sent to NP Fulfilment.
For more information, please read How to Work with Checkout Data.
Inventory Location Match
If you only want to send certain items to NP Fulfilment, 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 NP Fulfilment.
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.
Shipping Class Match
Using the shipping class match feature, you can match as many different shipping methods as you offer to the methods NP Fulfilment uses to ensure your customers are getting the closest shipping option to what they selected at checkout.
For information on how to set up your shipping preferences, please read the shipping class match guide.
