To connect OnBuy and Shiptheory, login to your Shiptheory account and click on your username in the top-right blue menu and select the Manage Channels
OnBuy will be activated on your Shiptheory account and you will be redirected to the OnBuy settings page within your Shiptheory account.
Then select the status that you would like to trigger orders to download from your OnBuy account into Shiptheory. Those orders will be downloaded into Shiptheory and show on your dashboard, but do not worry, they will not be actioned until a matching shipping rule is found or a manual action has been taken in Shiptheoy. For information on how to ship orders once you are connected, see how to print shipping labels from OnBuy.
Advanced OnBuy Settings
From the OnBuy settings page, clicking the advanced icon in the bottom left-hand corner shows additional options, documented below.
OnBuy Product Weight
OnBuy does not yet have a concept of product weight, so our default weight option lets you set a default product weight Shiptheory will use for each of your products. This weight never flows back into OnBuy, it is only used to send to shippers, as most shippers require weight. You can also set the weight of your consignments via shipping rules, by updating your Shiptheory product catalogue, or manually.
Update Orders to Dispatched
If you enable this option, when your OnBuy orders are shipped in Shiptheory (a shipping label is created), the order in OnBuy will be set as "Dispatched".
Now you are connected, orders will start downloading automatically. Next, learn how to print shipping labels from OnBuy.
