Groupon Marketplace Account Integration

Overview

In this article, you will learn how to link your Groupon Marketplace and Sellercloud accounts in order to post products, manage listings and enable automatic updates.


Integrate with Groupon Marketplace

Sellercloud integrates with Groupon Marketplace using a VAN to transmit EDI documents.

  1. The customer must first create a Groupon account.
  2. Go to https://scm.commerceinterface.com/access_tokens/to obtain an API Key.
  3. Obtain a Seller IDfrom your Groupon account.
  4. Sellercloud requests unshipped and NON EXPORTED orders from Groupon. By default, Groupon will drop orders into an email attached to the account. This marks them as exported and Sellercloud will not be able to download them. Make sure to disable this setting before going live with this channel.
  5. In Sellercloud, go to SettingsCompanies > Manage Companies > Select a company > Toolbox > Groupon Marketplace > General Settings.
  6. Check the box for Groupon Marketplace Enabled.Groupon Enabled
  7. Fill in your credentials provided by Groupon Marketplace > Save.
