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.
