Additional Information

Orders

When an order is created in Medusa it will automatically be sent to Brightpearl and allocated there. Once allocated it is up to Brightpearl to figure out how the order is to be fulfilled - the plugin listens for goods out notes and tries to map each of these to a Medusa order, if the matching succeeds Medusa will send the order to the fulfillment provider associated with the shipping method selected by the Customer.
When line items on an order are returned the plugin will generate a sales credit in Brightpearl.

Products

The plugin doesn't automatically create products in Medusa, but listens for inventory changes in Brightpearl. The plugin updates each product variant to reflect the inventory quantity listed in Brightpearl, thereby ensuring that the inventory levels in Medusa are always in sync with Brightpearl.

OAuth

The plugin registers an OAuth app in Medusa allowing installation at https://medusa-commerce.com/a/settings/apps. The OAuth tokens are refreshed every hour to prevent unauthorized requests.
