Zift/Fifth Sun

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.

  • The print_sku field 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.)
  • The print_url_1 or print_url_2 fields 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_1 is front and the print_location_2 is 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 (ShippingCarrier and 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 StoreID as a checkout data field.
