Sending Orders to The Dream Junction

Overview

Order Desk can import orders from your shopping cart(s), sync in your print details and then automatically send them on to The Dream Junction for fulfillment. When orders are shipped, the tracking details will be sent back to Order Desk and back to your shopping cart if your store is set up for it.

This guide explains how to set up and use the The Dream Junction integration.

Setup

To connect to The Dream Junction, click on the Manage Integrations link under the Integrations menu in the left sidebar, and under the Print on Demand tab find and enable The Dream Junction.

Enter your API details, select Staging (for test stores) and Production (for live stores) then click to connect.

Once testing is done and you are ready to connect in the production environment, click Disconnect to remove your staging credentials:

Re-enable the integration following these same steps using your production credentials instead.

Integration Settings

Once connected, you'll have some shipment and integration settings to adjust per your preferences.

You can use one of the default folders already in your store or create your own. Read the Working with Folders guide for more information.

After Shipment, Move To

Select the folder you want orders to be moved into after The Dream Junction sends shipment details back to Order Desk.

If Canceled, Move To

Default Shipping Method

Choose the shipping method you want The Dream Junction to use for your orders.

Notification URL

Give this notification URL to your The Dream Junction contact and ask them to send shipment notifications to it. This is how they will connect back to Order Desk to send tracking details as they ship your orders.

This URL does not change between staging and production environments.

Send Customer Email Address to Dream Junction

Select this setting if you want customer email addresses to be included with the order details that are sent to The Dream Junction.

Garments Will Be Provided

Select this setting if you will be providing the garments for The Dream Junction to use for printing.

Default Return Address

Set the default return address that The Dream Junction should use on your shipments.

If you need to customize the return address for certain orders, you can save different return addresses to your Store Settings and then use a rule to set the return address to specific orders. If a return address is not added to the order, the default address set here in the The Dream Junction settings will be used.

For information on adding additional return addresses and applying them to specific orders with a rule, read the Store Settings guide.
