Once you make sure products and orders are synced between your store and Spark Shipping, it is time to start setting up your vendors.
By vendors we mean your suppliers, manufacturers, warehouses, or your own internal warehouse. Any party that you want to send orders to, or update inventory from can be called a vendor.
We have a list of pre-built integrations that you can select from. These are vendors integrations that are built on the backend of Spark Shipping, and can be used immediately/ no further set up is needed. We recommend that you start by using the 'Test' connection mode to make sure the vendor approves the orders format, and then switch to 'Live' mode after you get the vendor's approval.
- To create a vendor go to Vendors > scroll down to find the 'Custom Integrations' > select the vendor you want to add and click 'Add Vendor'.
- Now the vendor is created, refresh your browser and find the vendor in your Vendors list.
- Click on the vendor name to move to the Vendor Page > Follow the instructions on How to Connect to that vendor.
Once the vendor is created, it's time to map your SKUs. We recommend that you start by mapping only few SKUs to use for testing, and map the rest of your SKUs when you're ready to go Live.
