We're thrilled to announce a beta of our new print lab solution for NextGEN Pro!
That's right. You can now have print orders automatically fulfilled and shipped behind the scenes to your customers! We've partnered with White House Custom Colour, one of the leading print labs in the United States.
We're just a couple weeks away from an official release. We'd love to get additional testing and feedback. So if you're a NextGEN Pro user, and you've been waiting for automated print fulfillment, now is your chance!
This this is a fully working, complete beta with no known issues. You can use it to submit live orders to WHCC today.
How To Get Started
The service will be part of NextGEN Pro. If you’re an active NextGEN Pro user, visit the NextGEN Pro beta page for installation instructions.
We recommend that you run through the ecommerce set up wizard (you can skip steps you’ve already done).
To sell prints with WHCC, you’ll create a pricelist based on WHCC’s print
We recommend that you test initially with the Test Gateway rather than Stripe or Paypal. With the Test Gateway, no one will be charged, and no orders will be submitted to lab. Be aware that if you submit a live order, you will be charged for the print order by the lab, so be sure you're ready if you conduct live orders!
Help and Documentation
We've added a new ecommerce setup wizard to NextGEN Pro that will walk you through the set up. Starting from scratch, you can have a working print lab gallery in 2-3 minutes.
You can also reference the lab integration documentation as you need it.
We've also put together a 3-minute video that shows you how to set up ecommerce and print lab fulfillment. You can watch that below. And can also find an infographic on how lab integration work by clicking here.
As with any beta, please open a support ticket with your findings, questions and feature requests. We look forward to seeing your tickets.
Thanks! We'll be excited to bring automated print fulfillment to WordPress in just a couple weeks!
