Integrate AfterShip with Salesforce Commerce Cloud to get mesmerizing shipment tracking experience and swift delivery updates from 800+ couriers like UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL, etc. without investing time or putting additional effort.

Steps to integrate Salesforce Commerce Cloud with AfterShip

➡️ Generate a new API Client ID

Go to the ‘Account Manager’ settings > ‘API Client’ > click on the ‘Add API Client’ option

Provide requisite data in the provided fields of the ‘General Settings’ tab

Note: Refrain from making changes in the ‘JWT’ and ‘OpenID’ sections
Now, select the ‘client_secret_basic’ from the ‘Token Endpoint Auth Method’ menu

Tap on 'Add' to create a new ‘API Client ID’

➡️ Configure OCAPI settings

Go to the SFCC Business Manager > Administration > Site Development > Open Commerce API Settings

The 'Select Type' field is set to ‘Shop’ by default, so just change the 'Select Context' field to ‘Global’

Now, paste in the following JSON and ‘Save’ it
