ChannelEngine integration

Creating API account for ChannelEngine

If you have multiple channels connected in your ChannelEngine Dashboard, you can do these integration steps to each of those channels. In myOGO you can then control each channel's products and orders individually.

In order to make the integration to channel possible you will need from ChannelEngine merchant API key and your site prefix.

To get merchant API key in your ChannelEngine dashboard go to Settings → Merchant API keys.

Under Merchant API keys section you can add new keys with Add button. Give the key a name and click Add. Copy the API key and save it for later.

Then you will need your store name as it is presented in the domain.

Copy the prefix of your dashboards domain and save it. (for example: https://example-store-name.channelengine.net/)

After copying the keys and store name you can make the integration in myOGO.

 

Integration to MyOGO

Go to myOGO Edit merchant page and select Integrations. Click on New integration and select ChannelEngine from the list. Do these steps for each channel you want to integrate.

Fill in:

  • Store name. (Your dashboard's URL prefix, for example: https://example-store-name.channelengine.net/)
  • Merchant API Key
  • Fill in just hyphen "-" for the Channel API Key

Channel API key is reserved for custom configuration that is not needed by default.

Remember to save your changes and to enable scheduled latest changes update after the goods are in stockYou can test your integration by pressing Test button.

 

Setting up shipping methods

Shipping methods that you offer at your online store need to be linked to specific shipping methods provided at myOGO in order to gain full automation.

Orders that ChannelEngine receives have shipping methods based on the related web store. Check how these shipping methods are determined in the integrated webstores. Once you have those set up copy the shipping method name, i.e., "DHL".

Once you have those set up copy the shipping method name, i.e., "DHL".

Go to Edit merchant → Shipping methods.

Add new shipping method from the list and copy the shipping method name from your online store.

 

The "*" special character can be used as a wild card in the text or code. E.g.

  1. "DHL*" matches to "DHL-1" and "DHL-test"
  2. "D*L" matches to "DtestL" and "DYL"

Remember to link every shipping method individually to certain shipping methods on myOGO.

We offer a large variety of shipping methods.

  • DHL offers worldwide fast delivery
  • Omniva is a cheaper and slower option to ship internationally
  • GLS ships to Europe

After all shipping methods in your online store are linked to OGOship shipping methods, your setup is done. For more information read Shipping Methods.
