  2. Verifying SKUs
  3. Mapping Shipping Methods

Allowing API Access

The Application Programming Interface (API) allows for automated communication between connected systems. In order to automate fulfillment for TradeGecko orders, API Access must be enabled.

Verifying Product SKUs

Stock keeping units (SKU) are merchant defined codes used to uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is required that the SKUs defined in TradeGecko match exactly to the SKUs loaded into your warehouse management system. Verify that these SKUs match before enabling your integration.


Mapping Shipping Methods

Within TradeGecko, merchants name the shipping methods that they offer to shoppers. These defined names must be mapped to a corresponding carrier/service code within your warehouse management system. To map shipping methods:
     
  1. Gather all of the shipping methods defined in TradeGecko

  2. Create an Order Shipping Description Transformer rule to map each method to a corresponding code.

Enabling Inventory Tracking 

The integration supports Inventory Adjustments. To enable, follow steps described in Allowing API Access to TradeGecko, including gathering and entering the Inventory Location Name


Reviewing Order Status

Sales Orders will be imported when the payment_status = paid and fulfillment_status = unshipped.
