The settings for Invition Print & Ship can be found in your WordPress dashboard when navigating to WooCommerce > Invition Print & Ship. Before you can start, you need an API key to make a secure connection with our platform. Request your API key.

Below is a brief explaination of what all settings do. 

General settings

  1. API User
    Fill in the API username you received from us.
  2. API Key
    Fill in the API key you received from us
  3. Test mode
    If you want to place test orders, please check this box. Remind that you need test credentials to be able to use this. Contact us if you wish to receive test credentials.
  4. Enable debug mode
    This setting can be used for debugging. When enabled, debug information is written to wp-content/uploads/print-and-ship.log 
  5. Send order to Invition
    On what order status should the order be sent to Invition? Usually this is ‘Processing’, when the payment is received, but you can change this for your own needs. When using the Zakeke extension, this must be 'Ready for production'
  6. Accept backorders?
    Do you want to accept backorders? Default for this setting is Allow, but notify customer, because we want the customer to know they are ordering something that is not in stock.

Product updates

The product updates page has two sections. If the setting generates an action, it means that nothing is changed without your consent. The actions can be found and processed through the Product updates page.

Simple products

  1.  Add product image when no product image is present
    When adding products through Create a product > Create a Simple product, do you want the plugin to add a product image automatically?
  2. Update prices when Invition changes suggested retail price
    This will generate an action on the 'Product updates' page to change the product price when a price at Invition has changed. 

Variable products

  1.  Add new brands to variable products
    This will generate an action on the 'Product updates' page to add missing brands to a variable product. We recommend to enable this. 
  2. Add new models to variable products
    This will generate an action on the 'Product updates' page to add newly added models to your variable product. We recommend to enable this. 
  3. Add new case type and colour to variable products
    This will generate an action on the 'Product updates' page to add new colours and case types to your variable product. We recommend to disable this, unless your designs are universally designed. 
  4. Update prices when Invition changes suggested retail price
    This will generate an action on the 'Product updates' page to change the price the the suggested retail price. You can use the extra fields to add price rules. These price rules will be used to calculate the new price.
  5. Enable new variations
    Do you want to enable all new variations when generated? This means it will be visible immediately on your website. We recommend to enable this. 

E-mail

This e-mail is only sent when the parcel is sent with a track&trace code. The normal confirmation from WooCommerce is also sent, so this e-mail can be considered as an addition for traceable orders. 

  1. E-mail subject
    This will be displayed in the subject line, the place might differ per e-mail client but usually this is shown together with the sender name before the e-mail is opened. 
  2. E-mail title
    The title will be displayed on top of the e-mail with a larger font. 
  3. Track & Trace text
    Write the e-mail text. The track and trace link will appear underneath this text.  

Gift items

This section can be used to add items to an order or an order line automatically. Some people use this to add their own flyer to each order, some other customers use it for custom packaging or adding a gift to each order.

Please note! Added products will not be shown in WooCommerce, they will just be added to the order at Invition. If you wish to check if the product came through, please use the Dashboard.

If you wish to make an upsell, you have to add the product in WooCommerce and let the user add it to the cart. Using this function will not charge the customer, but we will charge you for the handling and the added products. Contact us if you want more information about this feature. 

  1. Add this product to each order
    Enter the Invition SKU of the product you wish to add to each order automatically. You can use this to add a gift or a flyer to each order without charging the customer.
  2. Add this product to each ordered product
    Use this function to add a free product to each product. This can be used for custom packaging. 

Shipping

You can select a minimum shipping level for all orders by default. There are currently no settings to let the customer choose a shipping level so use this function wisely. When you set this function to 'Premium', all orders will be shipped and charged as a premium shipment. Make sure you calculate this in your profit margin, or charge your customer for this. Please contact your account manager if you wish to receive more information about shipping prices.
