Both your website and selling on Etsy shop are important; managing both the entities separately is not an easy task, though. You need time, effort and manpower to make sure everything goes as planned. It made us realize, if we can integrate your eCommerce site and a marketplace like Etsy, it will curtail a huge burden at once by allowing a store owner to sell on the marketplace directly from his eCommerce store.

A PrestaShop-Etsy connection is a similar approach that works by integrating an interface on the PrestaShop back-office which possess the controls and configurations for:

  • Synchronizing the updates and changes in the stock
  • Managing orders received from the Etsy store
  • Preparing product feed for Etsy listing
  • Preparing different profiles for Product listing for bulk uploading of the products or selected products of the store
  • Preparing product Shipping options for Etsy orders
  • Setting up an Etsy API configuration to establish the connection

1. The connection setup

The PrestaShop-Etsy integration process is simple and you can do it without knowing to code.

To start selling on Etsy Marketplace you will need a seller account on Etsy. Create a seller account on the Etsy marketplace before you can set up a Prestashop-Etsy connection. After seller account registration, you need to set up an App on Etsy to get the API details. The API details will be used by the PrestaShop-Etsy integration module to set up a connection between the store and the Etsy seller account. The integration allows you to select the default language and the language in which you want to sync the product details, categories, shipping methods, and other features.

Next, you will need to prepare the product feeds and upload them to the Etsy product listing. However, before your PrestaShop products are visible on your Etsy seller profile, you need to make sure that you have configured the shipping options.

The customers on the marketplace would want to see what shipping options are available with the product and when it is going to be delivered to them.

So, you must update the shipping options and let your customers on Etsy stay informed about them. You can add multiple shipping templates and improve your conversion rate because shipping is a major turn-off if a user couldn’t see the expected delivery date.

By running cron, the administrator may list the individual product or all the items.
