Saks OFF 5TH Account Integration

Overview

Saks OFF 5TH is a chain of luxury fashion outlets owned by Saks Fifth Avenue. Saks OFF 5TH offers designer clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, and accessories and typically features a wide selection of merchandise from top brands such as Gucci, Prada, Saint Laurent, Versace, and many others.

You can integrate Saks OFF 5TH through DSCO, which is a cloud-based platform that enables retailers to manage their orders, inventory, and shipping processes across multiple sales channels from a single location.

Integrating Saks OFF 5TH allows you to sell on their platform through Sellercloud. The integration works by transmitting information via API. The following plugins are currently available:

  • Order Import – Imports orders to Sellercloud in EDI 850 format.
  • Tracking Export  – Exports tracking information in EDI 856 format.
  • Invoice Export – Exports invoices in EDI 810 format.
  • PDF Invoice – Creates printable PDF packing slips.
  • Inventory Export – Exports inventory in EDI 846 file format.

If necessary, you can contact Sellercloud Support to request additional customizations or other plugins for this integration.

To have a dedicated representative complete the testing for your account and ensure that the setup is configured correctly, we recommend Premium Support.

  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.

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.
  • 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 and 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

  • Products must exist in DSCO in order to be exported.
  • You can use the custom product column DSCOSafetyQty to set a safety quantity on the product level.
  • DSCOItemID is conditionally required – if empty for a SKU, the SKU will be skipped in the update unless the custom setting DSCO_DontSendItemID is True. The DSCOItemID should match the SKU of your listing found on the DSCO Products page.
Prices are not included in inventory export updates.

Make sure to enable your products for DSCO by setting their SaksOff_Enabled Custom Column for Products to True:

  • For one product at a time: go to the Product Details Page > click Toolbox and select Custom Columns > click Edit, update the SaksOff_Enabled column, and Save.
  • For multiple products in bulk: follow the steps to Bulk Update Products and use the SaksOff_Enabled column – set it to True for all products you want to enable.

Unlike core integrations, plugin integrations don’t require products to be in the company where the scheduled tasks are. The export will include the products you select with your Saved Search

Before you move on, create a Saved Search for products filtered by SaksOff_Enabled True. Optionally, you can add more filters to the search.
