Automated Aerodrome Setup

Once you have entered the required credentials, Aerodrome will perform a self-installation procedure where configuration, log and database files are set up. This process can take up to one minute to complete depending on your machine.

Configuring Fulfillment Nodes

At Jet, fulfillment nodes are a location that your products are shipped from. Each order is required to have an associated fulfillment node, and prices and inventory are also required to be specified by fulfillment node. Aerodrome fully supports multiple shipping and return location fulfillment nodes, and will only operate on the configured nodes.

At this point, Aerodrome will prompt you to configure your fulfillment nodes. The fulfillment node Id's are required to be configured in your Partner Portal.

Categories and Attributes (Taxonomy)

The last step is to synchronize the Jet categories and attributes. Aerodrome will ask if you want to download the taxonomy. Click Yes. If for some reason you do not want to wait for the Taxonomy to be downloaded, you can click No, and run the synchronization service from the main menu later on.
Please note that the taxonomy is required to fully utilize Aerodrome.

This process can take 10-15 minutes to complete since Jet started rate limiting clients.
