Cancelled Orders

If you cancel an order on Rakuten/Buy.com, you need to cancel it again in ActionShip.

Reference ID vs Item Name

Your orders will import SKU as item name, and the Rakuten/Buy.com item name will be in the description field.

Inventory Update

In order for Teapplix Action Ship to know items you sell/list on Rakuten,  please submit a request to Rakuten to automatic generate the listing report. The report should be formatted as .csv and published in a zipped file.
