Premium Setup
SPS Setups or testing performed by CartRover have a setup fee. This fee includes the validation process required by the retailer and the initial configuration of the cart along with any minor development required to meet the certification requirements of both SPS Commerce and the retailer.

Step-by-step guide

Integrating to an SPS Commerce retailer can take 2-5 weeks due to field mapping and necessary testing procedures on the SPS Commerce side.

  1. Please contact your SPS Commerce Integration manager to obtain your FTP credentials, as well as your Receiver ID and Trading Partner's ID.
  2. Once you have finalized connection details with SPS Commerce and CartRover then a kick-off meeting will be scheduled for all parties.
  3. The SPS and CartRover integrations team will work with you to push test order data through each stage of your order process, from SPS into your destination system.
  4. You'll be asked to review the test order data and mock fulfilling the order in your system. The integrations team will then retrieve the data and return it to SPS who will validate it.
  5. Once all EDI documents in scope have been validated then your connection will be turned live and fully automated.

Retailer Setup

CartRover is able to connect to all retailers supported by SPS. Some restrictions may apply for specific EDI documents based on order destination and order type (B2B, B2C, Dropship).

Warehouse & Retailer Codes

Many connections will require the Retailer and/or Warehouse code and address.

The Retailer Code and Address can be added by going to the SPS cart and selecting Retailer Info

The Warehouse Code and Address can be added by following these instructions: Set Warehouse Address in CartRover

The Address Type Code value for each of these can be provided by SPS Commerce.

UCC Shipping Label Printing

Most B2B connections require the UCC-128 barcode on the ASN and occasionally on the invoice as well. If you are integrating a B2B connection with a retailer it is important to plan on generating these labels. In addition to generating the labels not all Order Destinations natively support data. For systems that are unable to provide those barcodes or if you are unsure if they can please reach out to for more information or possible solutions.

UCC labels are not required for DropShip orders.

Possible Options for Creating Shipping Labels

  1. Natively supported by your WMS
  2. Generated via SPS Commerce's Web Fulfillment Portal
