What’s the easiest way to integrate with your platform?
Currently there are four main options when integrating with our platform:
- Manual order form (supports online ordering for Shopify, BigCommerce, Etsy and WooCommerce)
- CSV importer
- Print API
- Shopify or BigCommerce integrations
If you are a developer or have access to a developer then the best option for integrating your website or app is by directly connecting to the print API. This allows you to seamlessly send orders from your app or website directly into our fulfilment network.
If you are a non-technical user with a Shopify or BigCommerce store, the easiest way to integrate is through our Shopify app or BigCommerce app. Simply create an account with us, download the print on demand app and set up your products.
When a customer purchases a product on your Shopify store, Shopify will automatically send orders to our print API and we then automatically send each order to the labs that produce and ship each item to your customer. We also send all order updates through Shopify.
If you are a non-technical user and your store is not set up on Shopify, the easiest way to integrate is with our super-simple manual order form. This is available to anyone who creates an account and gives you instant access to over 500,000 print on demand products, shipped from all over the world.
If you are using a third-party marketplace like Amazon or your own web shop and have high volumes of orders then our CSV importer is the ideal solution to help automate order creation. Simply use a spreadsheet to drop large numbers of orders into our API in one go.
We’re are also working on a new platform integration for Etsy to help automatic order fulfilment, and are already live with automated fulfilment for all Wayfair print on demand merchants. Get in touch to learn more.
Can I send my users through my own checkout?
Yes. Your users will go through your own checkout process.
If you are using the manual order form, you will need to manually submit these orders to Prodigi. If you are using the print API or our Shopify app, or BigCommerce app, then your orders will automatically be sent through our system.
Can you handle checkout for me?
This feature is not currently supported although our Print Shop and Photo Book Maker solutions do have options where we act as the transacting partner.
Do you have a WordPress plug-in?
We have no current plans to support WordPress. However, we are working on improving our preview service and turning it into a standalone product, so that you can create images and place orders for WordPress using the manual order form or CSV importer.
WordPress has previously proved challenging to support and maintain, which resulted in a negative return on our investment. For this reason, we don’t plan on focusing on it again in the foreseeable future.
Does Prodigi integrate with WooCommerce?
While we don’t currently have a direct integration with WooCommerce, we do offer a couple of solutions for processing your WooCommerce orders with us.
You can submit your orders through either our manual order form or CSV importer. Our manual order form is ideal for small or one-off orders, while our CSV importer allows you to download and import high volumes of orders directly from your WooCommerce account and into your Prodigi online dashboard.
