DCCode - This is your distribution centre code . Note you might need to get channel advisor support to set you up a new distribution centre if you want to ship from multiple warehouse e.g. FBA and a bespoke fulfillment comparing. Note only orderslines that are set to be fufilled by this distribution centre code will be imported in mintsoft.
You can find this on Channel Advisor under Inventory > Distribution Centres
Can't work out your profileId or DCCode ?
Email the Channel Advisor Support Team they will soon point you in the right direction - firstname.lastname@example.org
Then click create:
Once the account is created you will now see it in the Channel Advisor Accounts table.
To grant Mintsoft OMS access to the account to download orders and sync inventory click the request access button.
Once that has been requested successfully you will need to log into Channel Advisor and approve the access request.
This can be found on the Account Authorizations page:
It also usually sends you an email as well informing that Mintsoft has requested access
Once you have approved that in Channel Advisor - then click go back to the Channel Advisor overview page in MintSoft OMS and click the Green Check Access Button:
This will then check if Mintsoft OMS can access your channel advisor account - If this is successful you are now ready to go!
Note - if you sell across marketplaces in multiple countries you may have different profileids in channel advisor for each of these countries. You will need to repeat the setup process for each seperate profile ID that you want to link to Mintsoft OMS
