Parts Unlimited

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Introduction


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


The PartsUnlimited 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. PartsUnlimited SKU Import
  2. PartsUnlimited Inventory Update
  3. PartsUnlimited Orders Drop Shipping Test
  4. PartsUnlimited Orders Drop Shipping
  5. PartsUnlimited Orders Tracking Import


You will need API & FTP credentials from the PartsUnlimited 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 partsunlimited for orders that may be sent to PartsUnlimited and then save the order.
  • Automated Drop Shipping - If automated drop shipping is enabled, and pustock 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 PartsUnlimited. In other words, let's say you have 2 vendors you can order the product from - XYZ and PartsUnlimited. In the stock control field setting (mentioned previously) it shows "xyzstock pustock", if xyzstock has positive stock AND pustock has positive stock (as seen in on the item page itself), we'll first fulfill using "xyz". If it shows "pustock xyzstock", and both distributors have the product in stock, we'll send the order to PartsUnlimited since it's listed first.


PartsUnlimited SKU Import

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


PartsUnlimited Inventory Update

  • This will create a "pustock" field in your account.
  • The "pustock" 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 PartsUnlimited and updates products with a matching "pusku" with the latest inventory levels for products with valid "pusku".
  • Runs 3x per day at top of the hour.


PartsUnlimited Orders Drop Shipping

  • PartsUnlimited first requires that you create a "test order" in the the PartsUnlimited Orders Drop Shipping Test integration.
  • This automation creates orders that have a valid pusku in the product catalog.
  • Runs every 5 minutes.


PartsUnlimited Orders Tracking Import

  • Checks the PartsUnlimited 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.
