How to connect with Prestashop?
Do you want to connect your Prestashop store with Droplo? You’re in the right place. Follow these guide to successfully integrate Droplo’s supplier database with your sales channel.
At first, go to the “Add an application” tab and click Connect next to Prestashop.
A new window will appear asking you to enter the name of the sells channel. From now on, this integration will be named in Droplo according to your request and will be listed in the left menu under the Integrations category.
Enter the name in the blank field and click on “Save” button.
Then you will be taken to the connection settings window. To pass this step, you need to get authorization data from the PrestaShop admin panel: API key and an URL address to your shop.
To generate an API key, log in to your PrestaShop account, then in the customer panel menu find the Configure section and click Advanced Parameters ➡ Webservice ➡ Add new webservice key.
Generate and describe the key (e.g., “Droplo integration”). In addition, assign ALL permissions for resources:
Fill in the blanks using the webservice key obtained from your Prestashop panel and your store’s URL address.
Finally, click “Connect”. The connection to Prestashop will be established in a few seconds.
You now have access to the ” Prestashop Exporter by Droplo” application. This tool gives you the ability to manage your Prestashop store integration.
You can manage what products will be published in Prestashop and what the pricing or inventory rules will be for this sales channel.
You can easily configure various integration parameters in the exporter, such as:
- Global price mark-up (1)
- Currency (2)
- Automatic synchronization of prices and inventories (3)
- Product export language (4)
- Tax value (5)
When the configuration is complete, use the ” Save” button (6).
If you’ve already created categories in your Prestashop dashboard, you’ll need to map those categories 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.
Once you’ve saved product(s), go to the “Category Mapping” tab and assign Droplo categories to the most related versions of categories from your store.
When you finish assigning each category in the list, click on “Save” button.
After saving your category mapping settings, you can go to the “My Products” tab and then select the products you want to offer in your store.
The “Synchronize selected” button will then appear. Use it to export the selected products in bulk. You can also upload products individually using the “Enable” function available in each product line.
Products successfully uploaded to the store will be enabled. However, you can disable their synchronization at any time, also individually or in bulk.
