SellerActive Free Trial - Setting Up Your Integrations

Learn how to set up your integrations using SellerActive and view answers to our most frequently asked questions.


Learn How To Integrate your Sales Channels and Update your Settings in order to Publish Listings and/or Reprice

Follow the instructions in either the video or the written out steps below to import your content from your sales channels into SellerActive. Your products and listings should appear in SellerActive within 30-60 minutes (1-2 hours if you have a large number of products). We recommend that you review that everything has imported as expected before continuing.

When you are ready to go live, enable the outbound integration settings for each sales channel to allow SellerActive to manage your prices. The toggle for pricing must be on in order to reprice. The publish listings toggle will be on by default.

Important Notes


At this point, leave the default Inbound settings ON and all others OFF.
 


To allow you to try out SellerActive without worrying about affecting your sales channels, we default to only receive Inbound information from the channels and we do not send Outbound information out until you're ready. The following describes what each icon means on the integration tiles and they allow you to quickly see if you're receiving, sending or both sending and receiving Orders, Prices and Quantities to/from the channels.

        • receiving SellerActive "App is receiving"
        • sending SellerActive "App is sending"
        • sendingandreceiving SellerActive "App is sending and receiving"

This is an example of how the Amazon integration tile appears when SellerActive is not yet sending anything out to Amazon and only pulling in Listing information and Order information.

amazonintegrated_inboundonly

InboundOn

Import Listings: This allows SellerActive to pull in your product information (including Quantities and Prices). 

Import Orders: This allows SellerActive to pull in the last 30 days of orders from the integrated sales channel.

⚠️Warning: Walmart Import Orders setting - Keep this inbound setting to OFF for Walmart if you have another software managing orders on Walmart until you have purchased a paid subscription of SellerActive and are ready to allow SellerActive to manage orders.Walmart_integrations2

We suggest you leave the default Outbound settings to OFF until you have completed the entire set up process and ensured all of your information is correct in SellerActive before turning the Outbound settings to ON.


3) SellerActive will begin the Product import process

Once your integrations have been set up, SellerActive will begin the process of importing your products (both active and inactive) from the channels.

productsworkspace

Connecting sales channels kicks off an import of your product information, which will be reflected in both the Products Workspace and the Listings Workspace. This typically takes 30-60 minutes, but could take longer depending on the number of products you have. You may customize the columns in each workspace to your preference.

  • The amount of data and type of data for each product that imports into SellerActive will vary depending on the channel and not all information will reflect in SellerActive (e.g. cost and additional images). If you plan on listing your existing items onto additional channels, a best practice is to export the additional product information from your channel (i.e. Shopify), and import it into SellerActive through a bulk upload to modify your products with additional product information you may have available.

Note: ebay Integrations - If your full catalog has not imported from eBay, it is likely due to  duplicate Custom Labels on eBay. The other possibility is that you integrated an ebay Motors account, so make sure you're integrating an eBay.com account instead. Reference this article for how to work with duplicate custom labels on ebay.


4) Review the Go Live Checklist 


Before enabling the Outbound settings to ON, read the Go Live Checklist below before you update your outbound settings to allow SellerActive to "send" Outbound information out to the channels.

Review these important items before going live:

✔️ Prices are correct

  • On the Listings Workspace, review the Price columns to ensure you have the correct prices you want SellerActive to send out to the channels.
  • Publishing listings will include a one time update to the listings' prices and quantities.
  • If you need to update any Prices, you may do so one by one in our user interface, or you may update it in bulk.

✔️ Required costs and prices have been entered so your Pricing Strategies will work

If you're planning on using SellerActive's pricing strategies to competitively reprice your items, make sure you have these fields filled out prior to going live or repricing will not calculate correctly:

  • For each listing, make sure you have entered the Prices and Preferred Prices.
  • If you have created a strategy using dynamic min/max “Profit Based” for your repricing limitations, make sure you have entered the required Product Cost for each product. Fulfillment Center Cost is optional. Learn how to update your Cost in bulk.

  • If you have created a strategy using manual min/max “Manual Assignment” for your repricing limitations, make sure you have entered the manual min/max for each listing. Learn how to update these in bulk.


🏁 5) Update your Outbound settings to allow SellerActive to send information out to the sales channels and go live

Congrats! You are almost there! Update the Outbound settings for each sales channel to ON.

kb_trialoutbound
These are the most important Outbound settings available during your free trial:

  • Allow publishing of new product listings and updates to existing listing properties: Publishing will include a one time update to the listings' prices and quantities. This setting is on by default.

  • Allow SellerActive to manage and export prices: This gives permission to SellerActive to manage and send price updates to your connected sales channels.*

    *Please keep in mind that you should no longer update the sales channel directly with prices once you go live with Outbound settings set to ON (unless you're using SellerActive to publish listings only). All price updates should be made in SellerActive during this trial. If you update the sales channels directly, SellerActive will not import those changes and will override the channels with the information in SellerActive.

    Channel Specific Outbound Settings:

    • Amazon 
      • In order to publish to Amazon, the listings detail “Handling Time” must be completed.
        amazon_synclistingdetails
            • ebay
              • Enable automatic relisting when inventory is available: We recommend enabling this so your eBay ItemIDs remain the same, and items are automatically relisted after any out of stock inventory is replenished

              • Hide prices until checkout: Enable this if you do not want buyers to see prices until checkout.
              • Default Policies: Either complete the Default Policies within SellerActive or you will need to opt in to business policies on eBay. To opt in now, log in to your eBay account.

                ebay_listingdetails
            • Walmart
              • Walmart Import Orders: Keep this inbound setting OFF if you have another software managing your orders until you are ready to go live with SellerActive and have us manage your orders.
