Marketplace feeds have two topics to be taken into account:
products and offers feed setting & orders management.

Orders management settings depend the way you want to retrieve and manage orders:

  • In the Lengow dashboard
  • In your e-commerce back-office through a Lengow plugin
  • In your e-commerce back-office through the Lengow API

Select the option through the "Order Management" button below to find out what you have to do.

Marketplaces do not all function the same way. Some may switch all at once from previous to new platform, some other not.

That's why we share with you the most suitable process to move each of them to the new Lengow platform, through the "Products & offers feed migration" button below.

Adjustments may be required for your orders management, depending on the system you are using.

  • You want to carry over one or more marketplace feeds into the new platform.

What to do in Lengow?

The steps for setting up a marketplaces feed in the new platform are still the same, but some actions may be required around this setup.

Spartoo
For this marketplace you may distribute your products on a single country, or on multi-country. 
If you are in the latter case, please read the next step before going to the migration method.

If you are not distributing your products on multi-countries, skip "Multi-country distribution with Spartoo" step and start reading from "B Method / Full move at once ..." below.

Multi-country distribution with Spartoo

Please note that Sparto requests a single feed when you sell on multiple countries. To match that need, we gather your Spartoo different feeds into one single feed to send you products information.

The first Spartoo feed you create and activate in Lengow is considered as the "Master feed". This feed'll be the one that'll serve as the basis to integrate products on Spartoo. It is important that this country feed match with the reference country on your Contract with Spartoo. If you don't know which is the reference contract, please contact your Spartoo account manager.

Also, it is important to do the whole set up for this "master feed".

For other "countries feeds", only a partial set up is requested. More information on the Attributes Matching step.

If the first activated feed doesn't match with the reference feed, please contact us to do the change.
Categories Matching on "countries feeds" isn't necessary, since categories from the "master feed" will be the one sent to Spartoo.      

To sum this up, you must therefore:

A >> Add the channel "Spartoo" whose country corresponds to your contract reference. This will be your "master feed".
B >> Add the "Spartoo" channel for another country. This will be your "Country Feed".
C >> Repeat step B, for each additional country.
D >> Fully set up the Master Feed AND set the country feed(s) up partially (as indicated in the guide).
E >> On D-day, add the API IDs on the master feed and on the other country feed(s) in the same time frame.

Methods

Refer to the marketplace list above to know which method is suitable.

A Method / Product sample

Step 1: Set up the feed on the new platform

Refer to the marketplace guide here, and follow steps until "Preview your data" included.

DO NOT FILL IN YOUR MARKETPLACE CREDENTIALS IN LENGOW YET.

Then follow steps below.

Keep in mind, once you made settings, you'll have to report on that feed any new settings you would do on the previous feed, until you reach step 7.
Step 2: Exclude products

Remaining on the new platform, exclude products so that only a products selection will be available in the optimised feed to be sent to the channel.

At this step, the feed is still in "Draft" status in the new Lengow platform. It is really important to register this exclusion before you realise the step 4.
Step 3: Remove the same products from the previous platform

Back in the previous platform, remove from the optimised feed the same products as the ones which are about to be sent through the new platform.

To do so, you can use the Segmentation or unpublish them thanks to a rule defining 0 (zero) for the quantity.
Step 4: In the new platform, fill in API ID

Back in the new platform, at the "Settings" step, fill in connection identifiers in order to connect this new feed with the marketplace.

Identifiers may be different from a channel to the other. Please refer to the marketplace guide, step "Configure your Options" for more information.
Step 5: Check errors report

Remaining on the new platform, make sure the first products you send to the marketplaces are ok.

Please check errors report in Lengow and make change in marketplace settings on the new platform if required.
Each marketplace has its own errors. Please refer to the step "Read Integration Reports" in the marketplace channel's guide.
Step 6: Repeat steps 2 to 5

Once errors disappeared from reports, repeat steps 2, 3 and 5 to gradually increase the number of products displayed through the new platform.

When all your products are displayed through the new feed, the optimised feed from the previous platform should be empty.
As this moment, go to "Step 7" below.
Step 7: Inform Lengow

When your products will be displayed via the new Lengow platform, go back to the previous version of your account (solution.lengow.com) and deactivate the channel.

Carry out step 4 and 5 immediately afterwards.
Step 4: Deactivate the feed in the previous platform

S.he will then make the necessary change on his/her side so that this new data source replaces the one from your previous Lengow account.
Step 6: Check errors report
On the new platform, make sure the first products you send to the marketplaces are ok.

Spartoo
For this marketplace you may distribute your products on a single country, or on multi-country. 
If you are in the latter case, please read the next step before going to the migration method.

If you are not distributing your products on multi-countries, skip "Multi-country distribution with Spartoo" step and start reading from "B Method / Full move at once ..." below.

Multi-country distribution with Spartoo

Please note that Sparto requests a single feed when you sell on multiple countries. To match that need, we gather your Spartoo different feeds into one single feed to send you products information.

The first Spartoo feed you create and activate in Lengow is considered as the "Master feed". This feed'll be the one that'll serve as the basis to integrate products on Spartoo. It is important that this country feed match with the reference country on your Contract with Spartoo. If you don't know which is the reference contract, please contact your Spartoo account manager.

Also, it is important to do the whole set up for this "master feed".

For other "countries feeds", only a partial set up is requested. More information on the Attributes Matching step.

If the first activated feed doesn't match with the reference feed, please contact us to do the change.
Categories Matching on "countries feeds" isn't necessary, since categories from the "master feed" will be the one sent to Spartoo.      

To sum this up, you must therefore:

A >> Add the channel "Spartoo" whose country corresponds to your contract reference. This will be your "master feed".
B >> Add the "Spartoo" channel for another country. This will be your "Country Feed".
C >> Repeat step B, for each additional country.
D >> Fully set up the Master Feed AND set the country feed(s) up partially (as indicated in the guide).
E >> On D-day, add the API IDs on the master feed and on the other country feed(s) in the same time frame.

Methods

Refer to the marketplace list above to know which method is suitable.

A Method / Product sample

Step 1: Set up the feed on the new platform

Refer to the marketplace guide here, and follow steps until "Preview your data" included.

DO NOT FILL IN YOUR MARKETPLACE CREDENTIALS IN LENGOW YET.

Then follow steps below.

Keep in mind, once you made settings, you'll have to report on that feed any new settings you would do on the previous feed, until you reach step 7.
Step 2: Exclude products

Remaining on the new platform, exclude products so that only a products selection will be available in the optimised feed to be sent to the channel.

At this step, the feed is still in "Draft" status in the new Lengow platform. It is really important to register this exclusion before you realise the step 4.
Step 3: Remove the same products from the previous platform

Back in the previous platform, remove from the optimised feed the same products as the ones which are about to be sent through the new platform.

To do so, you can use the Segmentation or unpublish them thanks to a rule defining 0 (zero) for the quantity.
Step 4: In the new platform, fill in API ID

Back in the new platform, at the "Settings" step, fill in connection identifiers in order to connect this new feed with the marketplace.

Identifiers may be different from a channel to the other. Please refer to the marketplace guide, step "Configure your Options" for more information.
Step 5: Check errors report

Remaining on the new platform, make sure the first products you send to the marketplaces are ok.

Please check errors report in Lengow and make change in marketplace settings on the new platform if required.
Each marketplace has its own errors. Please refer to the step "Read Integration Reports" in the marketplace channel's guide.
Step 6: Repeat steps 2 to 5

Once errors disappeared from reports, repeat steps 2, 3 and 5 to gradually increase the number of products displayed through the new platform.

When all your products are displayed through the new feed, the optimised feed from the previous platform should be empty.
As this moment, go to "Step 7" below.
Step 7: Inform Lengow

When your products will be displayed via the new Lengow platform, go back to the previous version of your account (solution.lengow.com) and deactivate the channel.
