Configure API user
To begin, create a dedicated user account in QuickBooks Online for the purpose of API authentication.
Gather API credentials
The API (Application Programming Interface) provides automated communication between connected systems. In order to enable API access, the required credentials must be gathered from QuickBooks Online.
Enable API access
Enter the API credentials in DropStream to enable automated fulfillment.
Initiate order workflow
As part of the Quickbooks Online setup process, a new custom field named Fulfillment is added to Sales Transactions. This field is used to track the status of a Sales Transaction fulfillment.
Review order status
When you set the integration to Enabled, orders are automatically sent from the eCommerce cart to your warehouse management system.
