06. ZetaPrints synchronization settings

Step 5 Step 6 – Configure settings Step 7

Your Magento store needs to be synchronized with a ZetaPrints web-to-print portal so that templates can be imported.

Log in to Magento as a store administrator, navigate to System/Configuration in the top menu and click on ZetaPrints Web-to-print tab in the menu on the left.

Magento ZetaPrints web-to-print settings

ZetaPrints demo account

OurĀ web-to-print extension is setup to work out of the box with a demo ZetaPrints account. When you’re installing the extension for the first time, the ZetaPrints URL and API key fields are populated with the following demo account values:

  • ZetaPrints URL: http://apidemo.zetaprints.com/
  • ZetaPrints API key: fcb42944-5b11-42d2-8c3f-5b9d96a794b9

This enables you to populate your store with templates and try the extension before setting up your own web-to-print portal.

Installation Step 9 and Step 10 contain instructions about registering a master account and setting up a custom domain which is required when you’re ready to move on and populate the store with your own templates.

ZetaPrints URL

URL to the home page of your ZetaPrints web-to-print portal, e.g. http://orders.example.com

Do not include any page names. Must have http:// part in it.

ZetaPrints API Key

This is a key that allows access to your data via ZetaPrints API. Go to your ZetaPrints portal, log in and navigate to API page. Grab the key from there.

Keep the key secret. It is the same as your login and password.

Refresh All

Set this parameter to No. It will update only templates that have changed since the last time.

Setting it to Yes will instruct the sync to download all templates. It is a bit dangerous because:

  • your ZetaPrints account may be blocked automatically if you do it too often
  • your Magento hosting may be suspended if you take too many resources for too long on a shared computer
  • the process may time out if there are too many templates to import

Deleted templates

By default, this option is set to Ignore and running the ZetaPrints templates synchronization profile does not affect products in Magento even if they were removed from ZetaPrints. You can chose one of the available options depending on how you want the deleted templates to be processed when you run the ZetaPrints templates synchronization profile.

  • Ignore – deleted templates will be ignored and their corresponding products will be left as is. Users will not be able to use the product for web-to-print or dynamic imaging, but will see it in the catalog.
  • Delete products – the products associated with the deleted template will be completely deleted from your store.
  • Move to category – the products associated with the deleted template will be moved to the category you choose.

Set Defaults for created products

Products can be created automatically for imported templates. This is where you set the system to use default values for required product attributes so that the product appears in the front-end of the store right after it was created.
