The goal of the Onboarding phase is to start developers on the path to success with iQmetrix APIs.

Attend Onboarding Call

iQmetrix will work with you to schedule an onboarding call.

During this meeting you will be introduced to iQmetrix APIs and the Dropship process.

Sign Master Services Agreement

API Subscribers are required to sign a Master Services Agreement (MSA) and accept the Terms of Use before API access is granted.

Provide Emails for Accounts

You must provide one or more email addresses that will be used to access iQmetrix APIs.

We recommend creating a new email address in your system for API access, such as iQmetrixUser@companydomain.com.

Provide Retailer List

If applicable, provide a list of retailers interested in using your dropship integration as early adopters.

The following information should be included for each retailer:

iQmetrix will process this list and provide you with a list of Company identifiers (CompanyId) for both Sandbox and Production Environments.

Determine Product Identifier

iQmetrix expects suppliers to maintain an identifier for each product in the form of a Vendor SKU.

The term VendorSKU is used throughout this guide and refers to an identifier for a product in a supplier system.

As part of the onboarding process, you will receive an onboarding package containing credentials needed to access iQmetrix APIs.

Before you can receive an onboarding package, you must:

Before You Begin

To make requests to iQmetrix APIs, you must first generate an Access Token using the access credentials from your onboarding package.
