Requirements

  • Create a FinerWorks Account
  • Connect Your Store to FinerWorks
  • Linking Your Store Products to FinerWorks

Create a FinerWorks Account

If you have already registered, you can skip this step, otherwise start here:

Register with FinerWorks

Connect Your Store to FinerWorks

Login to your account. Go to the integrations page and select either the integration you want (Shopify or Etsy).

Linking Your Products to FinerWorks

This is very important since this tells us what to produce when you send us your orders. You can either link to print products and frames you store in your (virtual inventory or link to a generic FinerWorks product sku.

A.     Linking to Virtual Inventory

Having virtual products stored at FinerWorks does not cost your anything. However, you will need to create these for the most seamless transmission of orders. Once you create your virtual inventory, you will need to input the skus into the product listing in your store.

Step 1. Go to your FinerWorks Account > Virtual Inventory and create products that correspond to the products you offer or will offer in your online store.

Step 2. Login to your online store’s admin interface. Update the skus assigned to your “store’s” product listings. The sku used should be the one assigned to a FinerWorks virtual inventory product.

B.   Linking to Generic Product Code Skus

For printing or products where an image might be different for each order (such as customized or commissioned artwork), storing a virtual inventory as described in the above step won’t work since you won’t have an image to go with it yet.

Instead, you can use a different type of product code sku which simply represents everything about the product (size, what it is printed on, framing options, etc.) we need to know. The only thing it does not include is any image file. When the order is submitted, you will be able to provide it to us there. You can find these with the product pricing or by clicking on the price of the product.  For instance, if go to the canvas page and look at the prices, click the price for the item you want. This will provide you a detailed description of that item, including the sku you would need.

This option is currently limited to the following types of products:

  • Canvas Prints
  • Metal Prints
  • Acrylic Prints
  • Fine Art Paper Prints (giclee)
  • Photo Prints
  • Picture Frames
  • Mats
