In this section we will go through the general settings of the plugin. For the other settings tabs please refer to the related articles on the bottom of this guide. To change the settings of the plugin, log in to your WordPress admin and head over to Print & Ship > Settings.

This function is for testing. Please do not use this function unless our support desk asks you to enable it. If you do have test API details, please note that the data on the demo environment is not accurate and should not be used to create products or generate variations!
You can use debug mode to fix issues with the integration. When enabling debug mode, a file will be created at your server in the folder wp-content/uploads called print-and-ship.log. The plugin will write debug information here. Only enable this function when you need debugging as there is no log rotation built into the plugin. If you leave this enabled for months or years, it might grow to a large file.
Send order to Invition
Use this option to set when the plugin sends the order to the Invition Platform. You can select ‘Processing’ here when you want the order to be sent immediately after the customer places the order. When you use the Zakeke extension or when you want to change the design before placing the order, select ‘Ready for production’ here.
With this option you can decide if you want to accept backorders. Some customers find it easier to simply not accept any backorders as this might result in customer questions. The plugin manages your stock quantities so if you’re cron job is set properly and you accept backorders, the website will show to the customer that the product is currently not in stock when they place an order.
