New: plentymarkets Shopify connection with public plentymarkets app

Shopify plentymarkets connection - update

A new app has recently become available that makes it much easier for you to connect Shopify to plentymarkets. The new app replaces the Shopify plugin that was previously used to connect Shopify environments to plentymarkets systems. The new app is integrated into the core of plentymarkets, so it does not require a separate update and simplifies maintenance. Thanks to the use of current technologies, it is also noticeably faster and offers two comprehensive wizards for integration.

The app establishes a two-way data exchange and ensures the automatic transfer of item, inventory, and order data. While product information and availability are maintained centrally in plentymarkets and transferred to the Shopify store via the Rest API interface, orders flow back directly in the opposite direction.

The setup in Shopify is completed in just a few steps. After installation, only the access data to the plentymarkets environment must be entered. On the part of plentymarkets, a user-friendly wizard is offered to carry out the setup including individual setting options.

The plentymarkets app is available free of charge in the Shopify app store. Use requires an active Shopify and plentymarkets account.

Connect Shopify and plentymarkets

The basic requirement is that you have both a Shopify store. If you don't have an active plentymarkets system yet, you can easily create one during the Shopify app setup and book a free trial period.

In Shopify, you just need to install and set up the app from the Shopify App Store. After you install the app, you will see the following screen:

Now you can either enter your access data (PlentyID, user + password) or click on "Book your free test system" at the bottom left.

After you have logged in, you can make your settings in the next step. Here it is mainly about these questions:

  • In which direction should the data be synchronized?
  • Shopify -> plentymarkets
  • plentymarkets -> Shopify
  • plentymarkets <-> Shopify (einige Kombinationen sind nicht möglich, da sich die technischen Prozesse sonst in die Quere kommen würden.)
  • Which data should be synchronized?
  • Prices & Inventory
  • Article
  • Categories
  • Orders
  • Customers
  • Payments
