Merchants who also sell products via the Houzz Home Products Marketplace, can now import orders from Houzz to their Shift4Shop store for processing. As orders are retrieved from your Houzz account, matching orders are created on your Shift4Shop store, where they may be reviewed and processed. Then, as the orders are moved to the shipped status on the Shift4Shop store, their corresponding order on Houzz will be updated too! Furthermore, any orders canceled on the Shift4Shop store will also update to the corresponding Houzz order as well.
Enabling Houzz Integration
To enable the Houzz Integration on your store, proceed with the following steps:
Log into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager.
Using the left navigation menu, go to "Modules."
Once you get to the Modules page, type in "Houzz Integration" in the search bar at the top to locate and put a check in the "Enable" checkbox.
Next, click on the Settings button.
Within the module, you will have the following settings and options:
Import Shipped Orders**
If marked, this checkbox will make it so that your orders that are marked as "shipped" on the Houzz side will also be imported to your Shift4Shop store.
Please note that if the order already exists in the Shift4Shop store but was not imported using this integration (i.e., manual creation), then it may potentially create a duplicate order on your Shift4Shop store.
App ID, User Name, & API Token
Enter your Houzz account credentials in these fields. Please refer to Houzz's support documentation in regard to finding your credentials.
Use this field to add a prefix to orders that are imported from your Houzz account.
This is intended to differentiate those orders from your regular Shift4Shop orders.
This last setting in the module will be used to select one of your store's created payment methods. Select which payment method you want to have mapped to your imported Houzz orders.
Update Inventory in Import*
Mark this checkbox to update your Shift4Shop store's inventory to reflect (and deduct from) your items ordered on Houzz Note that you will need to have your Shift4Shop store's Inventory Control settings turned on for this to work.
Once you have configured your settings, click Save at the top right to complete the integration!
Houzz Product Feed
In addition to importing orders from Houzz to your Shift4Shop store, the integration will also let you import products from your Shift4Shop store to Houzz using a product feed.

Scroll down the page until you reach the "Houzz Products Feed" section, and click Edit Settings to continue.
