Listing on EKM with Avasam

With the Avasam listing tool, it's easier than ever to list your products on your EKM store

Before you can list a product you must ensure that you have sourced products and integrated your EKM store.

Ensure that the title, description, shipping price and selling price are correct before listing a product.

Listing titles must be between 3 and 100 characters in length.

Listing a product in your EKM store

  1. Open listing manager.
  2. Click on the listings button for your EKM store.
  3. Select one or more products to list that don't have tick icons by their entry by selecting/ticking the left hand box for the product(s).  
  4. Ensure you set the condition and category (if required). These come from your EKM store.
  5. Set a price, or click on the automate now button to setup a pricing rule to manage the price of the item.
    1. If it's a variation product, click on the + button.
    2. Ensure you check all of the title, price, condition and delivery template settings for each child item, including pricing automation.
  6. Click on list at the bottom of the screen.
  7. Avasam will report item listed successfully.
  8. The screen will refresh. You may now need to change the filter settings to show the product(s) you listed.
  9. If there is an error with the process, then this will be reflected by a red error icon (see below). Otherwise the status will change to listed (a green tick).

 

When listing products to your store, both with and without using the Avasam listing tool, in order to map the product correctly so that orders for the product can be processed, you will need to go into the mapping tool to download the latest listings after they have been created:
- Open settings
- Open channel integrations
- Click on the channel to open the settings
- Click on SKU mapping to expand the section
- Select download from the drop down list. This may take several minutes.
- Click on the SKU mapping tool button.
-- If the items were listed in Avasam , or using the Avasam SKUs, then click on the action available option, and select automap SKUs.
-- If the items were listed with a different SKU, then follow the instructions for SKU mapping.
- Click close when you have finished.

The tick icons indicate that an item is already listed on your EKM store.

  • green tick is an item that has been previously listed using Avasam's listing tool on your EKM store.
  • grey tick is an icon that is already on your store, but was listed without using our listing tool.

If an item shows a red exclamation mark (!) icon, this means that there has been an error when trying to list that item. Please hover the mouse over it for a tool tip that says why, or contact our support team for assistance.

If you change your mind about updates you are making to products for listing, then you can click cancel to leave the screen and abandon changes.

If you are interrupted and want to come back and finish later, then selecting the products and clicking action, then save will keep them saved for later.

Listing manager

The listing manager is where you can review and control the status of your integrated sales channels.

The listing manager can be opened from the menu to the left of the Avasam screen. This allows you to add products to your EKM store, check their status and update them.

It contains information about the integrated channels and their current status (order sync, price sync, stock sync, all show the time this last occurred). It also contains information about the listings on the individual stores.

The listing manager shows the products in your inventory and their status on your EKM store (listed, not listed, error).  You can search for a product or filter the products shown using the controls along the top of the screen.

The columns and controls are as follows:
