This article outlines the steps required for configuring your Magento integration. Steps include:
- Configure product SKUs.
- Gather shipping methods.
- Enable inventory tracking.
- Include tracking numbers in shipment emails.
- Review order status.
- Supported Megento versions.
Configure product SKUs
Stock keeping units (SKU) are merchant defined codes used to uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in Magento match exactly to the SKUs loaded into your warehouse management system.
Gather shipping methods
Most businesses have unique shipping needs that are based on a variety of factors and limitations. Once the Merchant has decided which methods (and/or carriers) to offer, the only thing 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 description offered in the e-commerce system to the unique shipping code used by the fulfillment center.
Enable inventory tracking
The integration supports Inventory Tracking.
Include tracking numbers in shipment emails
DropStream provides an enhancement to the default settings, allowing tracking numbers to be sent in shipment emails for Magento.
Review order status
Setting the integration to Enabled will begin the process of automatically sending orders from Magento to your warehouse management system.
