Before being able to use the BrandsSync extension you need to configure it properly.

Before installing the plugin you have to purchase the Dropshipping service from Brandsdistribution.com and get the API Key. The API Key is required to synchronize your data with the shop, you can find the API Key in your user profile, in My Subscriptions panel.

The BrandsSync configuration can be edited from the Modules and Services page of the administration interface. First, go to Modules and Services, then use the search bar under the Modules List section to find the BrandsSync module.

Then, press the Configure button.

Configuration page is divided into two sections: API Configuration and Price Configuration.
