Vendor integration - Magento

If your vendor has a Magento store, Jetti can automatically sync products.

Last updated November 23rd, 2018

Magento offers a set of features for selling products and managing orders online. You can publish and automatically sync products between your Magento vendors and your store. Jetti also automates order routing and tracking, so that Magento vendors are able to view, fulfill, and track orders directly from their Magento store.

Syncing with Magento Vendors

Syncing with a Magento store, your vendor will need to provide you with the following:

  • Store URL
  • User
  • Password
  • Magento Store (optional)
  • API Path (optional)
  • Shipping Method title (optional)

When creating a new Magento vendor under your Contacts, you will need to fill these in the respective fields when setting up the order routing and creating the inventory feed.

Store URL, Magento Store, Shipping Method

The first thing required from your vendor is their Store URL, e.g. https://magentostore.com/. Your vendor can find their Store URL by clicking on customer view from their Magento account, and copying the URL it displays.

The Magento Store is the store code. This can be found in Stores > All Stores, and it is the code under the column Store View. This is useful in the case that your vendor has multiple stores, as they should provide you with the store code of the store you are looking to connect to.

The Shipping method title is optional as well, and if left blank, it will default to flat rate. If you wanted to change it, the vendor would need to go to Stores > Configuration > Sales > Shipping Methods and choose one of the titles there.

User and Password

The next credentials needed are the user name and password. Your vendor will need to first create a user role with the correct permissions needed, and then they can create the user name assigned with that role. The following permissions are needed for this role:

Order Sync

  1. Sales > Operations > Orders > Actions > Invoice

  1. Stores > Settings > All Stores

Inventory Sync

  1. Catalog > Inventory > Products

  1. Stores > Settings > All Stores > Configuration > Inventory Section

  1. Stores > Settings > Attributes > Product

Once the permissions of the user role are set, your vendor can create a new user under their Magento account. To do this, they need to navigate to Systems > All users > Add new user

Before saving the new user, it is important that your vendor selects the user role they created in the earlier step, so that Jetti can access all relevant data.

Note: When creating orders, ensure that the shipping information includes the first and last name of the customer, an email address, and a phone number. These details are required for the order to process.
