What Is QPilot
QPilot ( https://QPilot.cloud) is the Scheduled Commerce Engine™ that provides a hosted, enterprise-scale architecture for “queueing up” any product for a future scheduled order.
Powering Autoship Cloud is the QPilot Scheduled Commerce Engine™. This engine hosts all of the features and automated processes that enable the creation, management and processing of Autoship Scheduled Orders for your WooCommerce store.
To integrate with this engine, you need a QPilot Merchant Account. The Autoship Cloud plugin is built to integrate WooCommerce directly with QPilot’s API ( https://docs.QPilot.cloud). This RESTful API can be integrated with many types of web services and applications beyond WooCommerce as well.
A QPilot Merchant Account is required to:
- Successfully setup and test Autoship Cloud
- Setup and change settings for your connected WooCommerce Site
- Connect additional 3rd party apps & integrations
- via the QPilot Zapier app
- or by using the QPilot API

When do I create a QPilot Account?
After installing the Autoship Cloud plugin, you'll find a notice within the Wordpress Admin > Autoship tab prompting you to register a QPilot account and connect your WooCommerce store.
This connection integrates your WooCommerce store to the QPilot web service enabling your store to run Autoship in the Cloud!
Once you've successfully connected your WooCommerce API to Autoship Cloud's hosted service, QPilot, you'll want to confirm that WooCommerce data is synchronizing successfully before moving forward with testing.
Note: it can take between 30 seconds to 5 minutes for WooCommerce data to start importing.

Features Limited to your QPilot Merchant Account
Many reports, features and integration settings are accessible through the WP-Admin > Autoship Cloud menu. However, some settings are considered too risky to expose in the WP-Admin and are managed only within the QPilot Merchant Account. These include (API Keys, Scheduled Order Processing Settings, Email Notification Settings, and more).
You can find these site-specific settings by logging into your QPilot Merchant Account, locating your connected Site and selecting "Edit" from the menu button (3 dots in the upper-right corner of each site). See more details of these in QPilot Settings and Options.
