Order Desk can submit your print on demand orders to Zift (Fifth Sun).
Setup and Configuration
On the Zift setup page, enter the API token you received during the setup process. You can also enter your default return address here if you like and we'll pass it with each order. If you set a default Shipping Carrier and Shipping Service, we will use these values when submitting your order.
Preparing Your Orders
Please see the On-Demand Print Fulfillment Instructions for details on how to configure your products. There are some special details about Zift that you’ll want to consider.
print_skufield must be either the exact ID for your blank or a string in the format of
Department-Style-Vendor. For example if you are printing a Men's Crewtee by Delta, the SKU should be
mens-crewtee-delta. (It is acceptable to only pass in the Department and Style if there will be no vendor confusion.)
print_url_2fields will be need to either be a publicly available url or an asset ID. If it's a URL, we will upload it for you. All artwork must be in PNG format.
- We will assume that the
print_location_1is front and the
print_location_2is back unless you specifically set these values.
- Please be sure that your colors and sizes are passed in the variation or metadata for each product. Both fields are required. We will handle the proper size formatting. We will also attempt to match color names to available colors. If you have trouble getting a match, please contact support and we may be able to help.
- If you would like to always use a certain carrier and service you can enter those values on the settings page. If you leave these settings blank, we will attempt to get the carrier and service code from the checkout data (
ShippingService). If the values don't exist, we will ask Zift for the available rates and automatically select the cheapest rate for you.
- If you would like to use a custom store ID for the order, you can set
StoreIDas a checkout data field.
