Fulfill Modified OrdersWithout this selection chosen, DCL does not send shipment confirmation back to Shopify once the order has been modified after importing into eFactory. This option will allow the order to be marked as "fulfilled" in Shopify once it has been shipped, independent of a change or no change to the line item detail.

Order AgeTime allowed for customer changes before order is transferred to DCL.
Notification EmailDCL will send an email to this address if it encounters any exceptions.
Should you need to add "Shipping Instructions" or "Packing List Comments" to an order, you have to add specific "metafields" to the Shopify orders. This feature (Metafields) is natively supported by the Shopify system.
In order to add this feature, follow the following steps:
Shipping methods defined and enabled in Shopify need to be mapped to the DCL shipping methods. Select the tab "Shipping methods" to review and define additional mappings.
You can find the Shopify shipping methods names under "
Settings / Shipping" in your Shopify administration site.
On this section we will report any error that prevents orders for getting imported or if we encounter any issue when we return the fulfillment info. If "Notification Email" has been setup, there errors will be also emailed.
If you have just installed the app, the main page of the app will show a form where you can put the DCL eFactory credentials to link to. Once the credentials are confirmed, you will be directed to the "Store Preferences".
The apps enhances the Shopify admin interface showing additional information to keep track your orders and inventory status.
You can access your DCL order report by clicking on the ellipsis (top right corner) and going to "DCL Order Report".
Your DCL order report will show you the status of your orders at DCL.
You can also access your DCL product report by following the same steps when on the "Products" page (note that "DCL Product Report" will have replaced "DCL Order Report"). Your DCL product report makes it easy for you to view all of your products; you will be able to find if we are keeping track of your inventory and easily find out if your product have been set up correctly. "Fulfill by DCL" column will show products that you have specifically set as needed to be fulfilled by DCL. "Inventory by DCL" column will show products which inventory quantity is handled by DCL.
