Cdiscount account configuration

The integration is currently in the beta phase.

 

BaseLinker offers two-way integration with Cdiscount, which allows not only to import orders but also to list offers based on products from the warehouse in bulk with just a few clicks.

 

Integration with Cdiscount module enables:

 

 

Cdiscount is operating on a product catalogue. Each product card created in the catalogue requires assigning a valid GTIN (EAN) number. Each product also has an associated category.

 

To list products not existing in the catalogue, add them directly using the “Seller Panel” in Cdiscount and then import these listings into the BaseLinker panel.

 

How to link Cdiscount account

To connect your account, follow these steps:

 

  1. Go to Integrations.
  2. Click the green button ‘+Add integration’, and then in the ‘Marketplace’ section select ‘Cdiscount‘.
  3. Add Cdiscount API Token.
  4. Congratulations – you have just added an  Cdiscount account to your BaseLinker account.

You can connect as many marketplace accounts as you want! This does not affect the subscription fee 🙂

 

Integration settings

When you add a new account you will see 6 tabs:

 

 

  • Connection – here you can test if the connection is correct.
  • Orders – here you can activate the download of orders. However, we recommend that you first configure Order Manager.
  • Listing settings – here you can choose a template, price list and category for your entire Cdiscount account.
  • Order statuses
  • Prices – the price synchronization module will allow you to automatically synchronize prices in offers according to the prices of products in stock.
  • Stock – the stock synchronization module will allow you to automatically synchronize offer stock according to warehouse.

 

The Cdiscount module

On the left side of the BaseLinker panel you will see the Cdiscount module. Here you will find 6 tabs:

 

 

  • Listing – here you list your offers. To proceed to the listing form, select the warehouse, Cdiscount account and products and click ‘List selected (form)’.
  • Offer management – here you can update existing offers. You can also import offers listed outside BaseLinker (and manage them directly in the panel) and export auctions for further analysis.
  • Shipping templates– here you will import Cdiscount shipping templates,
  • Categories and parameters – in this tab you will select your favourite categories and you will map the parameters
  • Associations – here you can assign marketplace categories and shipping templates to the category (or products) from the warehouse.
