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 Avectous.

Alternatively, search for Avectous from the available integration search.

On the integration page, add your Avectous Username, Password, Company Code, Channel Code, and Warehouse Code to connect.

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


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 Avectous that aren't mapped to one of the mail classes they use.

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 Avectous 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 Avectous sends tracking details back to Order Desk. Typically this is set to Closed, but any custom folder can be used.

Shipping Account Number

Give this Notification URL to your account rep at Avectous so Order Desk can pull your shipment and tracking details back into your orders here and, if applicable, send them back to your shopping cart.

Automatically Send Imported Orders to Avectous

If you plan to automatically submit every order to Avectous for fulfillment, you can enable this setting. All orders will be sent as they come in to Order Desk.

If you have any other fulfillment services or will have any orders you don't want to send to Avectous, keep this disabled. Use rules to submit orders to the appropriate vendor or fulfillment service instead.

Inventory Syncing

Sync Inventory

If you would like Avectous to send inventory reports to Order Desk, enable this setting. If enabled, your stock counts will be pulled into Order Desk on the interval selected in the next setting.

Sync Update Interval

If Sync Inventory is enabled, select the interval you would like Order Desk to pull in inventory updates from Avectous.

Options are Every Day, Every 8 Hours, Every 6 Hours, Every 4 Hours, Every 2 Hours, Every Hour and Every 15 Minutes.

Inventory Location Name

By default, inventory updates will add Avectous as the location name on each item updated. If you would like to override this to use a different name, add that here.
