VIDEO TUTORIAL: How to generate the correct credentials needed for a Shopify vendor integration

Share the video tutorial or this support article with your Shopify vendors to ensure they provide the correct credentials needed for the Shopify integration.

Vendor setup

As a vendor integrating into Jetti, orders pushed to your store will simply appear as a normal order. It should be picked up and processed by any third party apps you have installed (e.g Shipstation etc).

The invoicing address will be set to the merchant you are drop shipping with and the shipping address to the customer. Jetti will also add two tags to each order, 'dropship' and one with the name of the merchant.

Jetti will automatically match up the products being dropshipped and won't change any product details in the store. To enable the integration with Jetti:

  1. In Shopify, go to Apps > Manage private apps > Create private app
  2. Enter “Jetti” for the name and the contact email as support@jetti.io
  3. Jetti will need access to "Orders, transactions and fulfillments" (Read and Write) and "Products, variants collections" (Read). You'll need to enable "Inventory" (Read) if you want to sync cost prices, or to pull inventory from a specific location.
  4. Send us or your merchant the details you see in the “Authentication” section on the next page.

Please copy and paste all of the details into the email to your retailer. Jetti will need both the store URL (mystore.myshopify.com) and the API password. If these are not in the email, we won't be able to connect your store.

  1. If inventory needs to be pulled from a specific location, the location can be looked up from the URL directly, as shown in the screenshot below. Just ensure that Jetti has access to "Inventory".

How to know that the Shopify URL is correct?

The URL should look like this: https://{{my-brand-name}}.myshopify.com. A common mistake would be to enter the actual URL of their store (e.g. my-brand.com). If you are unsure, just try entering the address in your web browser. If it's correct, you should be directed to their homepage. If it's not correct, you may see a page like this:

Syncing pricing

If you select the option to sync the customer price or purchase price when placing the order in the vendor's store, Jetti will not be able to set the currency. This is fine if you and the vendor are using the same currencies. However, if they are different, a 100 USD price will be synced as 100GBP, without taking into account any currency conversion. What you can do is pass back the order value as the default price in the store, which should be in the right currency. To do this, select the option Use the default price in their store under the Orders-tab.

If required, one of our support team will be able to demonstrate the process and what to expect when live dropship orders being being placed.

Issues syncing errors

If your order didn't sync to the vendor's store, you can click on the Review & send button to view details error messages. A common error is that the vendor did not enable the correct permissions when creating the private app, as detailed in the earlier section of this article.

Will Shopify vendors be charged merchant fees for purchases that were made on my site?

The vendor shouldn’t incur any payment fees through Shopify.

The vendors have an option to mark the order as paid immediately, or sync the order as paid. Although you can mark the order as paid, this won’t trigger any payment. Some vendors may require this as only paid orders are imported into their shipping app. E.g. if they have connected ShipStation to their Shopify. The actual payments are sent to vendors separately.

How can I track shipping costs from my vendors?

At the moment we can't track shipping cost data as it's not available in the vendor's platform for us to import. We can only fetch the tracking number, carrier, etc.

Why is Jetti pushing invalid customer emails to dropship vendor systems?

By default Jetti doesn't send the customer emails. "Including customer emails" is off by default in the app to prevent duplicate shipping notifications and orders being incorrectly grouped in the vendors store.

If you turn this on, it might cause Jetti to push invalidly formatted email addresses to dropship vendor backend systems, which can cause the systems to refuse orders.

Is it obligatory to use Jetti as the app name & email, when creating a private app?

If you want to send customer instructions to the brand for generating these details, you can ask them to enter your name / email when creating the private app.

What if my vendor is using a different shipping app?

Your vendor using a different shipping app should work fine, with orders flowing normally to the app and inventory levels adjusting. If you detect any issues after the setup, get in touch: support@jetti.io
