Configure product SKUs
Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in BigCommerce are identical to the SKUs loaded into your warehouse management system.
Gather shipping methods
As part of the third-party fulfillment setup process, the shipping methods offered in the eCommerce system must be mapped to the corresponding shipping codes used by the fulfillment center.
Gather API credentials
To enable API access, gather the Store Hash, and the Store Owner Username and Password from BigCommerce.
Enable API access
The API (Application Programming Interface) allows for automated communication between connected systems. To enable automated fulfillment in DropStream, enter your BigCommerce API credentials.
Enable inventory tracking
The BigCommerce integration supports inventory tracking.
Requirements for imported orders
DropStream will import orders that have the status Awaiting Fulfillment.
Review Order Status
Setting the integration to Enabled begins the process of automatically sending orders from BigCommerce to your warehouse management system.
