Magento 1 - Set up the Plugin

How to access it? "Lengow" > "Global settings"

At the first use of the Magento plugin, a few settings are to be made in Lengow.

Global settings

You will find:

  • Information on your plugin version and find out whether an update is necessary.
  • Account ID / Access token / Secret token: Details are entered automatically, please do not change them.
  • Activate the authorisation by IP / Authorised IPs: Choose whether you want the export from the product catalogue to be protected by an IP address (instead of an authorisation by token). Where appropriate, specify the IPs which will have access to the export from the product catalogue.​
  • Lengow Tracker: Both options allow Lengow tracker activation with the plugin.
    By default, this tracker is deactivated and has to be activated to send data to Lengow.
    Second option allows to select the product unique identifier which is filled in Lengow.


Products export settings

How to access it? Magento"Lengow" tab > "Settings" >"Export settings" in the menu on the left, under "Lengow"  

You can:

  • Export selected products only: when this option is enabled, only selected products will be exported to your products catalogue.
  • Select product type to export (configurable, simple, downloadable, grouped and/or virtual).
  • Select status of product to export: limit your export to active products, inactive products or both.
  • Select attributes to export: choose products fields to export. To select several fields, press and hold the "Ctrl" or "Command" keys.
  • Select default shipping country for export.
  • Define default shipping method to calculate shipping cost. 
    This feature will calculate the shipping rate associated to the chosen shipping method.
  • Define default shipping cost if no correspondence is found.
  • Merge images with parents products if available: when enabled, parent products images will be merged with child products'. It is limited up to five images.
  • Save feed on file: enable this option if your catalogue contains many products (more than 3 000) or if your catalogue takes a long time to be generated. Your catalogue is then saved in a /media/lengow file in your Magento. Note: if you use a file, it is important to enable the scheduled task to keep it updated.
  • Enable Magento cron: launches export every 4 hours. This option is useful when the "Save feed on file" feature is enabled, as it keeps your file updated. This option uses the Magento CRON system.


Import settings

How to access it? Magento "Lengow" tab > "Settings" >"Import settings" in the menu on the left, under "Lengow"

You can:

  • Synchronise all orders updated since: the maximum period (in days) on which the plugin comes to synchronise the orders. In the case of a cron synchronisation, the time interval is managed automatically by the plugin and is based on the date of the last successful synchronisation.
    For example, if the last synchronisation was an hour ago, the plugin will only retrieve the last hours.
    On the contrary, if the last synchronisation was 3 days ago, the plugin will synchronise on the last 3 days without ever exceeding the maximum number of days you have entered (it is recommended to leave this parameter on 3 days).
  • Customer group: assign customers created during import to a specific customer group.
  • Choose your shipping method: for orders shipped by marketplaces.
  • Receive notifications whenever there are issues regarding order import
  • Import orders shipped by marketplaces and decrement the stock
  • Import B2B orders without taxes: This option allows you to remove taxes from B2B orders. By default, this option is disabled.
  • Enable Debug Mode: use Debug Mode to make test orders. You must enable this option ONLY on your preproduction server.
  • Enable Magento cron: Allows the synchronisation process to start every 30 minutes. This keeps your marketplace orders, dispatch and cancellation actions up to date. This option uses Magento's CRON system. Be careful however to activate this option only if you block the automatic synchronisation of Lengow, otherwise both processes will run at the same time and may cause duplicate orders.
