Products and SKUs can be fetched from online channels that are integrated with Primaseller.
Primaseller does not push new item listing to an online channel
We only update inventory and price from Primaseller to your online channels. We do not create new products from Primaseller if they don’t already exist on the channel.
However if you have your catalog configured on your channels, Primaseller fetches it into the system.
Before you can fetch your catalog, you will need to have already created an online channel.
Catalog -> Channel Catalog -> Select Channel
Click on Actions and select Fetch from online channel.
You will then be shown settings that decide how the products/SKUs are fetched into Primaseller. The defaults for these settings can be configured on the channels.
Fetch Catalog Configurations
1. Create new SKU’s:
By enabling 'Create new SKUs', a new SKU will automatically be generated for each variation of the products fetched from the channel into the Master Catalog as well as the in Channel Catalog – if it doesn’t already exist.
2. Add New Inventory
Inventory details of the new SKU will be fetched along with the products. You will also need to select the facility into which the SKU needs to be fetched.
3. Update SKU attributes
This will fetch updated SKU Name, Description, Brand, and Images from the channel to existing products in Master Catalog. If you are fetching the catalog for the first time, then you can disable this and schedule a fetch.
4. Substitute SKU Code
You can use Channel Listing ID from the channel as an SKU code for items that do not have one on the channel. However, this is not recommended. Ideally, you should set valid SKU codes for all the items in your online channel for better item identification.
5. Substitute Product Code
You can use Channel Parent Listing ID from the channel as an SKU code for items that do not have one on the channel. However, this is not recommended. Ideally, you should set valid product codes for all the items in your online channel for better item identification.
Once configured, click on Fetch Catalog and initiate a sync task. The task can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours to complete, depending on the size of the catalog.
Tasks can be accessed by clicking on the Tasks icon on the top right side of the app -
Price List Management
The price list mapped to the channel decides the currency denomination of the fetched items.
For example, if the channel is set to USD and the price list is in EUR, then the items fetched will be converted using standard rates and stored in the price list. If you do not want this, please ensure that the price list currency is set as desired.
