Magento V1

To add a Magento V1 sales channel on Despatch Cloud, you must have the login credentials for it. As you can see in the picture below, there are some fields like API Username and API Key that you need to obtain from your Magento V1 store.


In order to create these credentials follow the steps below:

1. Log in to your Magento Admin Panel.

2. Navigate to Panel Menu -> System -> Web Services -> SOAP/XML-RPC - Roles.


3. Click on the "Add New Role" button.


4. Enter a name and the current admin password.


5. Click on the "Role Resources" tab and set "Resource Access" as "All".


6. Click on the "Save Role" button.

7. Navigate to the Panel Menu -> System -> Web Services -> SOAP/XML-RPC - Users.


8. Click the "Add New User" button.


9. Fill in the fields as you see in the image below. Enter anything you want in the User Name and API Key fields, but don't forget to take note of them, these values are required to complete the integration. 


10. Select the "User Role" and choose the Role you create before.


11. Click on the "Save User" button.

Now you have API Username and API Key which you can enter in the required field to set up your Magento Channel. But there are other fields that need to be filled:

Magento 1 Domain URL: In this field, you should enter the store URL.

Custom Fulfilment Status: If you tick the "Use Custom Fulfilment Status" checkbox, you can create custom statuses in Magento like Awaiting Courier, Awaiting Label, or Fulfilled, etc. You can define your own custom status here. This field says which status you would like to set when an order is fulfilled.
