Brandboom Unlimited Yearly account


Blast Ramp account

  1. Contact Brandboom to enable integration for your account. Brandboom Unlimited Yearly Subscription is required for API use.
  2. Once a Brandboom customer service representative has enabled your account for integration, you will see all the information you need for integration on your Account page. Your API Public Key, API Secret Key, Account ID, etc, should now be listed under the section Integration.
  3. As the administrator of your Blast Ramp account, log into Blast Ramp and navigate to the following section: Advanced > Administration > DC Settings > Integration
  4. Locate and take note of the Vendor Code and Vendor Key under the section Web Service Credentials.
  5. Locate the section Brandboom Inventory Integration. Fill out the section as follows:

    • Brand Boom Public Key: Your API Public Key listed on your Brandboom account page.
    • Brand Boom Secrete Key: Your API Secret Key listed on your Brandboom account page.
    • Brand Boom Brand ID: *No longer required; leave blank or -1.
    • Brand Boom ShowroomID: Showroom ID listed inside of the Showroom Settings popup. API access must be enabled to see this.
    • Brand Boom Wholesale Pricelist Code: The Blast Ramp Price List that you want to use as the Brandboom wholesale price. On Brandboom, you will need to already have a Price Tier that corresponds to the same currency code.
    • Brand Boom Retail Pricelist Code: The Blast Ramp Price List that you want to use as the Brandboom retail price. On Brandboom, you will need to already have a Price Tier that corresponds to the same currency code.
    • Brand Boom Sync Mode: By default, Blast Ramp will act as the authoritative source of product information. It will push all product details to BrandBoom, overwriting any manual product changes that you might have made on BrandBoom. If you don’t want this to happen, you should change it to “Inventory Quantities Only.” This will force Blast Ramp to only update the inventory counts of products that already exist on Brandboom while not creating/modifying any products.
    • Use TEST Environment: If you’re planning to test out your account with the Brandboom sandbox environment first (brandboom.net), have this checkbox checked. For production use, make sure you uncheck this.
  6. Locate your Blast Ramp current Warehouse ID. You could find this Warehouse ID under Advanced > Administrator > DC Settings > Address Information
  7. Provide Brandboom with your Blast Ramp Vendor Code and Vendor Key and your Blast Ramp Warehouse ID.
  8. On Brandboom, update your Order Settings located on the orders page. Under Export Requirements, make sure the following items are checked off:

    • Buyer Name
    • Buyer Phone Number
    • Buyer Fax Number
    • Billing Address
    • Shipping Address

It’s crucial that proper size scales are set up before you can import products/orders into Blast Ramp from Brandboom. Otherwise, orders imported might have line items that have zero sizes/quantities.

In Blast Ramp, navigate to: Advanced > Administration > Sizescale. Make sure there’s a size scale that already contains the sizes you have on Brandboom. If not, click new … and create a new scale with the sizes separated by commas. Save the size scale.

You can either use Brandboom or Blast Ramp as the initial source of products.
