This section describes how to set up a Rakuten integration within Linnworks. Here you can find information about what functions Linnworks can perform while working with Rakuten, and how to configure them.
Rakuten integration allows the system to:
Automatically download new orders from Rakuten
Mark items as dispatched on Rakuten
Send out confirmation emails to the Rakuten registered email address
Submit order shipping information back to Rakuten once an order has been processed.
Automatically adjust inventory, to ensure you never oversell based on sales through other channels.
