Channel Integrations Through DSCO

Overview

DSCO is a cloud-based platform that enables retailers to manage their orders, inventory, and shipping processes across multiple sales channels from a single location. The channels you can integrate with Sellercloud via DSCO are:

The integration supports the following API plugins:

  • DSCO API v3 Inventory Export
  • DSCO API v3 Order Import
  • DSCO API v3 Tracking Export
  • DSCO API v3 Invoice Export
DSCO may require testing before you can go into production with the integration. This involves completing test orders, invoices, and inventory uploads according to the DSCO-provided test plan. For a dedicated representative to complete the testing for you, opt-in for Premium Support.

Prerequisites

We recommend creating a Company where you will set up the Custom Company Settings and Scheduled Tasks for this integration.

You must do the following before you can integrate via DSCO.

DSCO Support

First, contact DSCO Support to request your:

  • Supplier ID
  • API Token
  • Client ID
  • Client Secret
  • Warehouse Supplier Code

Send an email to support@dsco.io titled ‘Create Client Credentials.’ In the email, include the name and ID of the DSCO account and the user name with which the client credentials will be associated.

When ready, DSCO’s support team will send the client credentials to you. Be sure to store them securely.

To get a Warehouse Supplier code, you must set up a warehouse in DSCO.

  1. Contact the DSCO Integrations team and log into your DSCO account.
  2. Click CONNECTING: Step 1 and continue through the onboarding and testing processes.
    The Warehouse Supplier Code is chosen by you during the onboarding process. It can be created on your Warehouse Manager page in the DSCO portal.

You will use these credentials and Warehouse Codes to populate the Custom Company Settings outlined below.

After that, for the company you just added, create the following Custom Company Settings:

Sellercloud Support

Finally, contact Sellercloud Support to request:

  1. To install the DSCO plugins on your server.
  2. The required Custom Order and Product Columns:

Required Custom Product Columns

  • DSCOItemID – Conditionally required String. This should match the SKU of your listing. You can find it on the Products page in DSCO. If left empty for a product, that SKU will be skipped in the inventory update. However, if the custom setting DSCO_DontSendItemID is True, we will send the Sellercloud SKU instead.
  • DSCOSafetyQty – Sets a Safety Quantity on the product level.
  • DSCOIsDiscontinued – True or False, defaults to False. When set to True, exports the item with a Discontinued status.

Optional Custom Product Columns

  • Channel_Enabled – True or False. Set to True to enable the product for the channel. Replace Channel with the channel you’re integrating via DSCO. For example, for Chewy, it can be Chewy_Enabled, or for Kohl’s, it can be Kohls_Enabled.
  • DSCOEXPECTEDDELIVERYDATE – Used when the company setting DSCOUseExpectedDeliveryDate is enabled. Exports a date that’s a week ahead when missing or disabled. Sellercloud will follow the entered date. If no date is entered, 7 days from the current date will be sent.
  • DSCOCost – Sent when the company setting DSCOSendCost is set to True.
  • DSCOPartnerSKU – If this column exists and is populated, it is sent as a partner SKU.

  • DSCO_Coupons – Imports the coupons here.
  • DSCO_Email – Imports the shipping address email.
  • DSCO_ShippingSurcharge – For Saks OFF 5TH packing slips.
  • DSCO_Channel

Order Import

The Order Import plugin:

  • Gets all new orders from DSCO and imports them to Sellercloud using API. 
  • Imports orders as paid for the user DSCO_<CompanyID>@sellercloud.com. 
  • Acknowledges each order after it is created, so it will be moved to Shipment Pending in DSCO and will no longer be included in the new orders download.
  • Saves data to the DSCO_Order table.
  • Checks for products by matching:
    • DSCO SKU to UPC
    • DSCO SKU to Sellercloud Product ID
    • DSCO UPC to Sellercloud UPC
    • DSCO Item ID to Sellercloud custom column DSCOItemID
    • DSCO Partner SKU to Sellercloud Product ID

As of version 1.0.1.5, the plugin supports both the Stream API and the old method to get orders. The only differences are a few custom settings/credentials. The old method will continue to be used by default, where only DSCO_Token is required, as long as the Stream API settings don’t exist or aren’t populated.

If you need to reset the date, use the following DSCO_StreamPosition:

  • format: z/yyyy/mm/dd/HH/mm/000
  • example: z/2022/09/26/20/19/000
