Salestio Updates, April 26
Salestio Team is here with more updates on what we completed during the last month and what we are working on.
Mostly, we worked on the ability to create new listings on Amazon and on improvements to the existing Salestio functionality.
If you have any suggestions on how we can make Salestio better for you, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit your ideas to our roadmap.
SKU mapping to sync products from Shopify to Amazon
This part might be interesting for the users who already sell their products on Amazon. To successfully connect the products between the two platforms, it is important that SKUs are the same on Shopify and in your Seller Central Inventory.
But what if SKUs are different? Seller Central does not allow editing the SKUs once the listings are added to your inventory. Updating SKUs in Shopify might be a good solution. However, there are cases when changing SKUs in Shopify is not really convenient. For such cases, we added the ability to connect the products based on SKU mapping.
Previously, this feature was available only for importing Amazon and eBay orders to Shopify. At this point, we extended it to give the ability to connect the products between Shopify and Amazon to sync prices and stock.
If you would like to take advantage of this feature, send us a spreadsheet with 2 columns: Shopify SKU and Amazon SKU. We will upload the mapping to Salestio's database, and then, it will be possible to connect the products by clicking the "Sync inventories with selling products" button from the Inventory tab in Salestio
Metafield support for the Listing Title for eBay
When you create a new listing on eBay, the default Salestio's behavior is to send the exact Shopify title as a listing title to eBay.
eBay has its own title requirements that might not work for the product titles in your Shopify store. They do not allow more than 80 characters, the use of special characters like ` and the use of the words they consider prohibited.
If using the same title that you have on Shopify does not work for you, you can add the metafield to the Shopify product with the eBay title. There, you can add the needed wording. Then, you would need to configure the Creation profile to use this metafield. To do so, go to Salestio > Profiles > Creation profiles, and click to add a new profile, or edit the existing one. Click on the Listing title field and select the added metafield.
If you are not sure how to use the metafields in Shopify, here you can check our support article on this topic.
Save dialogue the same way as on Shopify
We are constantly working to make the app interface more user-friendly. At this point, we simplified the process of saving the pages and forms in Salestio.
As soon as you start adding the data to the pages in Shopify, it will show you the dialogue to save the page or discard changes.
- Handling of the eBay ids for the products that were stopped and then, listed again
- Improvements to Search on the Inventory tab for eBay; made it not Case sensitive
- Setting the default Shipping through the Shipping mapping for Amazon
- Updating the quantities for the products listed via Inventory API on eBay
- Handling of the special characters on variation labels when sending products to eBay
- Bulk actions on the Selling Lists for Amazon by skipping the products not in the correct state
- Sending the main image to Etsy when listing a new product
We had a couple of requests to adjust the order values in Shopify for the imported orders from Amazon and eBay.
Sellers handle their taxes differently depending on the marketplace and personal preferences. Some users handle the taxes directly on Amazon and eBay and do not want to get the taxes imported to Shopify along with the imported orders.
For such requests, we adjusted Salestio's behavior not to calculate the taxes to the Total or even to show taxes as 0.
We keep working on the ability to create new listings on Amazon. Amazon updated the process of creating a new listing, and for some time, we are not able to create a listing in Seller Central if it has never existed in the Amazon catalog.
At this point, we completed the beta testing of the functionality, and are in the process of adding more improvements to the interface to show the required fields.
Product creation on Amazon
As a user, I would like to be able to create new listings on Amazon from my Shopify products.
Some users create multiple Selling Lists to better manage the connected products. This task will help to avoid cases when the product exists in multiple Collections and as a result, might be added to multiple Selling Lists for each Collection.
Skip adding the same product to diffenent Selling Lists if the product is in multiple Collections in Shopify
As a user, I would like to ensure that the product is added only to one Selling List even if it exists in multiple Collections in Shopify
