Re: multichannel sales with different marketplacesby
Hello Using a multi-channel dispatcher is the best option, as it is allways very complicated to handle all the marketplaces that you need in Odoo. It is exactly like using a multi shipping provider. Lengow is only for big companies wich sells lot of products. We work with Iziflux, a french multi-channel feed (a «broker» as you said, one can see it as a dispatcher). Price is really cheap compared to Lengow and you can start with, for example, 100 products. There is a lot of multi-channel feeders. Local feeders are recommended at there is also a lot of local marketplaces. We have asked it-projects (Yelizariev's company) to code a connector Odoo 13 - Iziflux. It works well and we would like to release it as GPL. However, a simpler module would be good enough for starting as nearly all multi-channel feeds can handle CSV files. It would work as follow : - check products to sell - check require fields and transform format And a cron job would - CSV product and stock - CSV stored in dedicated directory - ftp your CSV to the multichannel feed (some multichannel feeds will directly take it) - ftp the multichannel CSV (sales) - CSV sale import Such a general module could be immediatly usable with every multi-channel feed as soon as you will setup the fields and adapt formats. If you need to search for multi channel providers, use these keywords : multi-channel, feed, connector, flux --- Librement, Xavier Brochard firstname.lastname@example.org La liberté est à l'homme ce que les ailes sont à l'oiseau (Jean-Pierre Rosnay) Le 15.04.2021 12:12, Alexandre Fayolle a écrit : > I'm in contact with a german company who would like to interface Odoo > with different marketplaces, such as amazon, ebay but also local german > actors.
