It corresponds to the time (in days) necessary to prepare an order.
Lead time to ship can be useful for built-on-demand products which need to be built, prepared, and packaged before they are sent. In this case you can specify a lead time to ship of five days for example, so that the customer knows that it will take five days before you ship the order.
The default maximum lead time to ship is set to 45 days.
Go to your Mirakl back office if you want to set up free shipping costs for all your products.
3. Variation values
Spareka doesn't manage products variations and will create a separate product page for each product variation from your products catalogue.
For instance, there will be different product pages for a spare part available in different colors on the channel:
- One product sheet for the product X in black
- One product sheet for the product X in grey
- One product sheet for the product X in red
- One product sheet for the product X in blue
4. OFFER_SKU, brand, reference, type
Once an offer is created with a specific OFFER_SKU and a sparePart[brand]/sparePart[reference]/sparePart[type] combo (which identify the product/spare part at Spareka), it will be impossible to send this same OFFER_SKU on another product/spare part later.
Please avoid modifying these three attributes: sparePart[brand]/sparePart[reference]/sparePart[type] after creating an offer on the corresponding product, since it would lead to the error: "offer is already linked to another Spare Part".
