Configuring a Plugin-Based Integration Through Scheduled Tasks
Plugin-based channel integrations are commonly used by SellerCloud for smaller, niche marketplaces, or when API integrations are not available.
The steps to configure most of these integrations, however, are very similar. Most plugin integrations can be set up to run automatically through Scheduled Tasks. There are generally 3-4 tasks required for most integrations, depending on how the channel works. See below for instructions for the most common configuration.
- Inventory/Product export to channel
- Order Import from channel
- Tracking Export to channelTracking export plugins are considered "Order Export". This means that tracking export tasks should be set up as task type 'Export Orders' in order for the plugin to appear for selection in the dropdown.
Another example of this would be if the channel requires invoices or acknowledgements to be sent. This would be a second Order Export type task, set up in addition to the Tracking Export task.
