Cart Setup

Each order source you setup in CartRover will have an "Order Source" value. You can view and edit this in the cart settings.

Within Ship Central you must add this order source in order for orders to load. Make sure the "Source Description" field in Ship Central matches the Order Source field in CartRover exactly.
