Transamerican Wholesale



Are you looking to automate Transamerican Wholesale pricing, and inventory/stock updates, and dropshipping when listing products to eBay, Shopify, Amazon, Walmart.com, BigCommerce and other e-commerce marketplaces and channels? 

The Transamerican connection is comprised of multiple separate automations, each performing a function.

You should enable them in this order. Read the description for each section to understand why.

  1. Transamerican SKU Import
  2. Transamerican Inventory Update
  3. Transamerican Orders Drop Shipping
  4. Transamerican Orders Tracking Import

You will need API & FTP credentials from the Transamerican team in order to use these automations.

Drop Shipping Modes

There are two modes the Drop Shipping integration may operate in: Manual Drop Shipping and Automated Drop Shipping.

  • Manual Drop Shipping - On the order page, you manually set order item vendor with a value of transamerican for orders that may be sent to Transamerican and then save the order.
  • Automated Drop Shipping - If automated drop shipping is enabled, and transamericanstock is the first stock control field (found under Settings > Selling > Stock Options > Stock Control Fields) that shows the product in stock, SureDone will automatically send the order to Transamerican. In other words, let's say you have 2 vendors you can order the product from - XYZ and Transamerican. In the stock control field setting (mentioned previously) it shows "xyzstock transamericanstock", if xyzstock has positive stock AND transamericanstock has positive stock (as seen in on the item page itself), we'll first fulfill using "xyz". If it shows "transamericanstock xyzstock", and both distributors have the product in stock, we'll send the order to Transamerican since it's listed first.

Shipping Service Mapping for Drop Shipping

By default, UPS Ground ("UPG") is set as the shipping service for Transamerican. SureDone offers an optional feature for mapping of requested eBay and Amazon shipping services to their equivalent offered by the distributor. In order to leverage this feature you must turn Ship Service Mapping on in the Parameters section of the integration. It is disabled by default. To understand which eBay/Amazon shipping service map to which vendor shipping service, please see the following Distributor Ship Services Mapping Sheet. In the sheet, if you do not see a distributor shipping service that matches that of the Amazon/eBay shipping service then there is no direct mapping for that service and the automation uses the default shipping type.

Transamerican SKU Import

  • This will create a "transamericansku" field in your account. 
  • The automation will attempt to link existing products in your account to those in the Transamerican catalog by matching with the UPC of each of your products.
  • Runs once every morning at the top of the hour.

Transamerican Inventory Update

  • This will create a "transamericanstock" field in your account.
  • The "transamericanstock" field will automatically be added as a stock control field (found under Settings > Selling > Stock Options > Stock Control Fields). Any number in this field will be added to the stock sent to your marketplaces.
  • Connects to Transamerican and updates products with a matching "transamericansku" with the latest inventory levels for products with valid "transamericansku".
  • Runs 3x per day at top of the hour.

Transamerican Orders Drop Shipping

  • This automation creates orders that have a valid transamericansku in the product catalog.
  • Runs every 5 minutes.

Transamerican Orders Tracking Import

  • Checks the Transamerican system to see if an order has one or more tracking numbers assigned to it.
  • If tracking numbers are assigned, they will be added to the order in SureDone and sent to the channel the order originated from.
  • Runs every hour at the 45th minute.
