Rakuten - Configuring for Automated Fulfillment

This article outlines the steps required for configuring your Rakuten integration. Steps include:
     
  1. Configuring Product SKUs (Stock Keeping Units)
  2. Gathering Store Shipping Methods
  3. Enabling Inventory Tracking

 Configuring the Product SKU

Stock keeping units (SKU) are merchant defined codes used to uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in Rakuten match exactly to the SKUs loaded into your fulfillment provider's warehouse management system.

Gathering Shipping Methods

Most businesses have unique shipping needs that are based on a variety of factors and limitations. Once you've decided which methods (and/or carriers) to offer, the only thing your shoppers need to do is choose a method when they place their orders. As part of the third-party fulfillment setup process a mapping must be created from each available shipping method option to a unique shipping code used by your fulfillment provider.
