With Multivendor Marketplace App, You can convert your store into a marketplace where multiple sellers can register and sell their products all over the globe.
You might know about Etsy, a well-known online global marketplace that focuses on selling handmade goods and vintage items. So, if Your sellers have their stores on Etsy too and they want to sell their Etsy store’s products on the admin’s marketplace then use Etsy Connector APP.
To connect the Etsy store with the admin’s marketplace, Seller needs to “Create An App” on his/her Etsy Store and get the API & Secret Key to establish the connection.
Admin can enable this feature app by approving the additional charge of $25 USD/month. Thus, allow sellers to import their Etsy store’s products to the admin’s marketplace. Accordingly, manage the inventory at both ends.
Let’s Explore the Features in detail.
Admin can allow the marketplace sellers to connect their Etsy stores with the admin’s Shopify store.
Further, the seller will create an app on his/her Etsy store and get the API & Secret key as Etsy store details.
Products created on Etsy can be imported using the product’s listing ID(s) with “approval pending state”.
The seller can import products in bulk using CSV file having multiple product listing IDs.
Moreover, admin can approve or deny the products imported by the Etsy sellers.
If an order is placed on the admin’s store, the same will be updated on Etsy too.
If an order is placed on Etsy, the seller will have the option to import orders either by “Order status” or by “Receipt IDs”.
Orders can be imported in bulk using the CSV file of order’s receipt IDs.
Both admin & seller can now sync the seller’s products in any state from the “Product Listing” section of their respective panels.
Only Physical products will be imported from Etsy to Shopify.
Variations should be less than OR equal to 100.
The option name should be less than OR equal to 3.
Imported Products will not be updated automatically at Shopify end.
Moreover, the Order placed on Etsy needs to be imported manually to Shopify.
100 Orders will be imported by selecting “Order Status” and the rest of the orders will be imported by “receipt IDs”.
In order to get this feature app, the admin needs to visit the “Feature Apps” section of the Multivendor app and go through below mentioned steps:
In Feature Apps section, Search for “Shopify-Etsy Conenctor“.
Further, click on the “Install” button to get this feature app.
Tap the “Agree” button and Proceed to approve the charge.
Further, click on the “Approve Charge” button.
Once done, You will get the Etsy Connector feature app installed on your Marketplace.
PRODUCT DETAIL CONFIGURATION: Admin End
Now, the admin needs to select the Etsy connector from the “Connector Configuration” menu of the app.
Go to Configuration>>Product Detail Configuration>>Select the Connector.
Now, he can enable/disable other tabs for this section:
That’s all about the Configuration done from the admin end. Furthermore, moving on to the Seller end and let’s see how the Sellers manage the configuration to connect their Etsy store with the admin’s marketplace.
As soon as the admin installs the Shopify-Etsy Connector feature app in Multivendor App. Also, a new sub-menu gets added in the Configuration menu of the Seller Panel.
Clicking on the “Etsy Configuration“, Seller needs to enter his/her Etsy store’s details such as Etsy Shop Name, API key, and Secret key.
NOTE:- Seller on Etsy can get his/her Etsy store name from the “Accounts” section of his/her Etsy Store. Login as Etsy Seller>>You (at the upper right corner)>>View Profile>>Get the Store Name.
How to get API & Secret Key?
To get the API key and Secret key, Seller needs to login to his/her Etsy Store and “Create An App” using Developer Account.
Do refer the attached Screenshot:
Once the Seller creates the app, he/she will click on the created app to get the API and Secret Key details.
Further, seller can copy the API and Secret key from here and paste it in the “Etsy Configuration” section.
Once the Seller gets the API and Secret Key, he/she needs to fill all the details in the Etsy Configuration section of the Multivendor Seller Panel.
Once the Etsy Seller configures his/her Etsy Store’s details, Seller can start importing products from Etsy to Multivendor.
As soon as the Seller adds all his/her Etsy shop details in Multivendor, an “Import Products” button gets added to the same page.
Further, clicking on the “Import Product” button, Seller will get two methods to import his Etsy store’s product to Shopify.
Method 1: Using single or comma-separated Listing ID(s)
Using this method, Seller needs to enter the Listing ID(s) of the products that he/she wants to import and then click on the “Import” button to get those products imported from Etsy to the Multivendor app.
Method 2: Import Products using CSV
In this method, Seller can upload a CSV file having a list of all the product’s listing IDs to be imported at a time in bulk. Once uploaded, Validate the file and click on the Submit button.
In this way, Seller can import products from Etsy to Shopify Multivendor App.
Once the products get imported into the Multivendor app, they will be in approval pending state at both the ends (admin and seller end). It is up to admin if he/she approves or rejects the products to be sold on the admin’s marketplace. If the admin denies the imported product, he/she needs to add a reason for the rejection.
Let’s See how it Works:
Suppose a product is added on Etsy and Seller has imported this product from Etsy to Multivendor App.
This is how the imported product appears on the Multivendor App.
Admin can enable, deny or delete any imported products from his end.
Once the admin approves any product, the same will reflect in the Seller panel of the Multivendor App.
When imported products will be ordered on the admin’s Shopify store, order details & inventory gets updated on Etsy too. But when an order is placed at Etsy, Seller needs to import the orders from Etsy to Shopify & manage the product’s quantity at Shopify end.
This will be done from the Seller Panel of the Multivendor App.
Etsy Orders will be imported either by “Order Status” or by “Receipt IDs”
Import by Order Status:
The seller can select any of the 5 order status i.e. Open, Unshipped, Unpaid, Completed or Processing and proceed to import 100 orders.
Import by Receipt IDs:
After importing 100 orders by “Order Status”, rest of the orders will be imported by “Receipt IDs”. Seller will enter the receipt ID(s) and click on the “Import” button to import the orders.
Please Note:- 100 Orders will be imported by selecting any of the above-mentioned order status and the rest of the orders will be imported by receipt IDs.
In this way, Seller can manually update the inventory at Shopify end.
Let the sellers create price rules to manage the product price of their PrestaShop store to the merchant’s store.
Sellers will have a new menu named Connector Price Rule in the configuration menu of the app. From here, the seller can create price rules based on which the seller’s product price will be calculated on the merchant’s store.
Clicking the Connector Price Rule, the seller needs to enable “Price Rule” status and select the options as increase/decrease price, the price will be changed by a fixed amount or a percentage amount, enter the amount that needs to be changed.
Further, enable the checkbox to update already synced product’s price at the merchant’s store as per the price rule created.
This way, sellers can create price rules from their respective seller panels based on which product price of the seller’s store will be calculated at the merchant’s store.
That’s all about the Shopify-Etsy Connector Feature App using which admin can allow his/her sellers to connect their Etsy Store with the admin’s Shopify store with ease.
