In addition to numerous feature apps in Shopify Multivendor Marketplace, We have now introduced the most awaited feature app i.e. Shopify-Magento Connector.
Using this feature app, admin can allow his sellers to connect their Magento store with admin’s marketplace. Sellers will either auto-sync their Magento store’s products with Shopify or import the products from Magento via SKU’s CSV file. Also, Inventory will be managed accordingly at both the ends once any order is created/updated for the Seller’s product at Magento or at Shopify.
Admin can visit the “Feature App” section to enable this feature and approve the additional charge of $25 USD per month over and above your current plan of the Multivendor app.
Once the admin enable this feature app, he will get a “Delivery URL” and “Magento Module” to be shared with his/her Magento sellers. Thus, Seller will enter this URL while setting the Magento Module and get the complete data through this URL.
And as Magento is an Open source platform, Seller will get the complete source code from that module to manage every update on Magento end.
