Auto-select configurator

For eBay and channels using Generic configurators (where configurator appears under Others in the Settings menu, like Shopify, Magento 2, etc), there is an additional option called Auto-select configurator(s).

This option is useful if you plan to list many items via different configurators. Instead of filtering and grouping items to select those that should be listed with the same configurator, you can select all the SKU's, and with the auto-select configurator(s), the system will be able to use dedicated for the item configurator.

To achieve this, you need to assign an additional extended property to the stock items to instruct the system which configurator it needs to use.

NB! Assigning multiple configurators on the same channel for one item is currently only available for eBay.
  1. Prepare configurators for all the inventory you plan to list.

  2. Add an extended property with the name CHANNEL_configurator (e.g. EBAY_configurator) and the value as the exact name of the configurator you want to use.
    Use either the regular Inventory Import or My Inventory drag&drop import to update items in bulk.

    • For eBay only: Auto-creation of templates for multiple sites is supported for eBay. You can specify multiple configurators to be able to create templates for multiple sites when using Autoselect configurator.
      For multiple configurators, add the extended property names in the format below: 
      • SubSource_CONFIGURATOR 
        (e.g. EBAY0_CONFIGURATOR)
      • SubSource_Marketplace_CONFIGURATOR
        (e.g. EBAY0_DE_CONFIGURATOR).

  3. Select all the items you want to list > right-click on the channel column for the selected items > select +Create listing on Channel > Auto-select configurator. 
    auto select configurator

This will create templates for all of these items with the configurators specified in each item's extended property.

NB! If an extended property specifying a configurator is not added for an item or it is added incorrectly, no listing template is created.
