Advanced parameters

In the "Advanced parameters" section, you'll find the following different parameters:

  • Order status: the Lengow module allows you to match the order statuses from the marketplaces with the statuses made available by PrestaShop via a status matching.
  • Management of the carriers for the marketplaces: When you add a marketplace on Lengow, you need to make the matching here between your PrestaShop carrier and the carriers of the marketplace in each country. Make the matching between:
    • The proposed list (based on the carriers offered by your marketplaces and a default carrier).
    • The drop-down menu which is based on the carriers configured in your PrestaShop back office.
Carriers list is available:
- for default country you defined in your Prestashop: within an hour after connecting the marketplace 
- for other countries: after you received the first order for this country from this marketplace.
  • Order import: choose here:
    • the maximum period (in days) over which the plugin synchronise orders.
      In the case of cron synchronisation, the time interval is automatically managed 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 recover the last hours.
      On the other hand, if the last synchronisation is 3 days old, the plugin will synchronise over the last 3 days without ever exceeding the maximum number of days you have entered (It is recommended to leave this parameter with 3 days).
    • if you want to import orders dispatched by the marketplaces, and where appropriate, if you want to reduce the stock of products in your PrestaShop for orders dispatched by the marketplaces.

3. Orders management 1/2

Marketplace orders (status change) can be managed from the "Orders" tab (menu on the left).

 

For each of your orders from Lengow, you will find a new Lengow block with all the order information and the following actions:

  • Re-import the order: recreate a new order and pass the current order through a Lengow technical error, but it's not worth further reducing stock.
  • Resend the action: This allows you to resend the action to change the status of the order to Lengow. (Ideal for correcting an order import error, for example if you have just entered the tracking coli which had been forgotten).
  • Re-synchronise the order: This allows you to remake the matching between Prestashop's order ID and the order ID in Lengow.

 

Orders management 2/2

In the plugin, you will find marketplace orders. You can see:

  • if the order has been correctly imported in PrestaShop
  • your orders current status (in progress and closed)

 

Note: orders are exported to the plugin only once their status becomes "Waiting for shipment" (after manual or automatic acceptation of an order in the Lengow platform).

If an order is not correctly imported in PrestaShop, it will appear as "Not imported". Mouse over this message to know what is preventing import. Correct the bug and click on "Not imported" to re-import the order.

If you change an order status into "Shipped" in PrestaShop, while an error prevents the marketplace from switching the status into "Shipped" (e.g. because tracking number is missing), a "Not shipped" message will appear. Correct the bug and click on "Not shipped" to re-import the order.

If you encounter troubles whilst solving problems, contact our Support Team.

If you add a new marketplace into Lengow, consider making the new matching between your PrestaShop's carriers and the carriers of this marketplace.
