Step 2: Connect Additional Channels (Product Mapping)
Video length: 6.10 minutes
The video shows you how to quickly connect additional selling channels and how to ensure that your channel listing are mapped (linked) to your products in your product catalog.
As soon as your channel listings are correctly mapped to products in your catalog MultiChannelWorks will be able to accurately calculate and keep track of your inventory levels as and when order are received and automatically imported.
QUICK START TIP: To skip the need to map products ensure that you're using common product codes when you list on multiple channels. (For example, if you list a product on Amazon, then use the same product code for the same product listed on eBay.)
If you're unsure if you use common product codes across all of your sales channels you can watch the video that shows you how product mapping works.
NOTE: If you only want to use the Order Processing features within your account to print packing slips and shipping labels then product mapping could be skipped. However it might be a good idea for you to watch the video in any case since product mapping is very important if you want to get the most our of your MultiChannelWorks account and to use the inventory synchronization and shipping integrations.
