Baselinker Integration

Estimated reading time: up to 3 minutes

If you want to connect your Baselinker account to Droplo, the only information you need is an API token, which you can generate in your account settings in your Baselinker dashboard.

Just go to the Baselinker admin panel and expand your account menu in the upper right corner of the panel. Then go to the My Account tab.

From the horizontal menu, select the API tab. After entering the program name (e.g. Droplo) and using the Generate Token button, the page should refresh, showing the new API token.

Next, go to the Products -> Settings -> Categories tab.

Here, create at least one category to which you will assign the products you list from Droplo.

Copy the API token from Baselinker, go to the My Integrations tab in Droplo, and then click Connect in the Baselinker field.

A new window will appear asking you to enter the name of the integration. From now on, the new integration will be named in Droplo according to your wish.

Enter your name in the empty field and click Save.

After that, the connection configuration tab should appear. Place the Baselinker API token in the designated location and click Connect.

After a successful connection, you will be taken to the Baselinker Exporter by Droplo tab, where you can easily configure integration parameters, such as:

  • Global mark-up – set the percent or amount margin on exported products;
  • Currency – choose the currency of your sales channel;
  • Synchronization – turn on/off automatic synchronization of prices and inventories;
  • Select inventory – decide to which inventory in your store exported products should go;
  • Warehouse – decide to which warehouse in your store exported products should go;
  • Price group – select a price group from Baselinker for Droplo products
  • Export language – choose in which language should the products be exported
  • Set tax – you can choose how the prices should be calculated regarding taxes

When you have completed the configuration on this page, use the Save button below.

After you’ve already created at least one category in the Baselinker dashboard, next you should to map this category with Droplo before exporting products to the sales channel.

Important! Category mapping will only be available if at least 1 product from any supplier is saved in your list.

Go to the Category Mapping tab and assign Droplo categories to related versions of categories from your store.

Important! In order for the mapping in Droplo to load correctly, you must have at least 1 category created in the Baselinker panel.

When you have finished assigning each category in the list, click the Save button below this page.

Note: Whenever you save more products with other categories in your list, it will be necessary to map the new categories in the synchronization settings so that the products can be uploaded to Baselinker.

After saving your category mapping settings, you can go to the My Products tab and export the selected products to Baselinker via the More Actions -> Add to sales channels function.

A new window will appear where you can choose which integration you want to upload products to. If the integration has encountered errors, e.g. with the connection, a message will appear at the top of the window.

In this case, check again that the configuration has been done correctly on the Droplo side as well as on the Baselinker side.

Note: If you want to remove products from Baselinker, don’t do it on the side of your sales channel. Remember to always manage your products from within Droplo.

This is because Droplo is the source for updating products in your store. Operating on products outside of Droplo may cause synchronization issues.

However, if you don’t want prices or inventory to be updated automatically on the store side, change the synchronization settings for your Baselinker integration in Droplo.
