Import Etsy Products
Once your Etsy account is linked to Vendio you can import your products directly during the setup flow:
To quick start your Etsy products import click the "Import all my Etsy products" button. The import process will start shortly.
If you want to customize the import, click the "Advanced import settings" link and choose your settings:
- You can choose to import all items or only those that are currently live.
- Next choose the item allocation strategy that you would like to use. If you want to share your inventory quantity across the marketplaces where you sell then select the "Shared" strategy. If you want to specify which of your quantities go to which marketplaces then select the "Committed" strategy. The "Unlimited" strategy is used if you want to keep selling regardless of your inventory quantities.
- Select which profiles you want associated with the Vendio inventory items. Profiles are not used for Etsy listings, but are used for other marketplaces.
The import process can take a few minutes. You can check the status of the import under "Items" --> "Import Items" by clicking the blue "View Import Status" button. Once the import is complete the items will be available under "Items" --> "My Items" in the "Etsy-Imported" folder.
If you do not want to import your Etsy products, you can skip this step and you will be directed to the next available setup.
