Connecting Printeers with Zakeke

  1. Create an account with Printeers.

  2. Printeers will be sending you a Partner Code and an API key.

  3. Once you receive the code and the key, go to your Zakeke back-office > Print-on-demand services > Printeers and enter them.

  4. The connection is now enabled and you can start adding customizable products from Printeers catalog.

 

Adding customizable products from Printeers catalog

  1. In your Zakeke back-office, go to Customizable Products > Add a Customizable Product

  2. Choose Printeers to open the catalog of customizable products

  3. By clicking on a product, you'll be guided through a few steps. In particular:

    • Edit the default name and the description of the product;

    • Choose the colors and the sizes, if available;

    • Select the sides of the product, if applicable;

    • Set the retail price of the product and your profit;

  4. Once you finish all the steps, save the product. A new customizable product will be created to your store and your customers will be able to personalize it by clicking on the CUSTOMIZE button on the product page. 

 

Note

For products imported from third-party catalogs, it is not possible to change the product images and size and position of print areas because they are automatically provided by the POD services and must follow their rules.

However, once the product is created, you can:

  • Add a 3D view of the product by using the Zakeke real-time 3D preview feature. You can use this feature instead of the Printeers mock-up generator to show a real representation of your products.

  • Change the product price.

  • Add a pre-made design with editable parts on the product.

To do the above actions, go to Customizable Products and select the product from the list.

Please Note

If you use our native integrations with the POD services, the PODs' catalogs will be available only for the first store (master sales channel) that you integrate and won't be available for the extra sales channels you might add to your Zakeke account.

 

Printeers dashboard

From this link you can download the Printeers Partner Dashboard. The dashboard is a tool to manage your orders in the Printeers Platform easily. With the dashboard you can place orders, change order addresses, cancel items, view products and more.

 

How to get orders fulfilled

The way orders get sent to Printeers for fulfillment changes based on the e-commerce platform you use and payment/check-out settings:

For Shopify merchants

Orders are automatically sent to Printeers as long as Payment Capture option is set on Automatically capture payment for orders in your Shopify settings.

In order to check your Payment Capture settings go to your Shopify admin panel > Settings > Payment Providers > Payment Capture section.

When an order is placed, follow this process:

  1. Access the Orders section in your Zakeke back office.

  2. Select the line of the new order and click on it.

  3. Use the "Send to the POD" button on the top right to get the order sent to the POD.

Important

please remember that if you accept manual payment methods (such as Cash on Delivery or Bank Deposit) or you have disabled the Capture charge immediately option for payment by Credit Card, even if you click on Send to the POD button, orders won't be sent to the POD until the order is "on hold" status because of no confirmation of the payment. To check the payment settings of your store, please go to your WordPress dashboard and then go to WooCommerce > Settings > Payments.

 

How to automate the process

If you wish, you can automate the process and have the orders automatically sent to the POD without having to click on "Send to the POD". Read here how to make it.
