Listing on Shopify with Avasam

With the Avasam listing tool, it's easier than ever to add your products to your Shopify store

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

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

Listing a product in your Shopify store

  1. Open listing manager.
  2. Open the listings option for the chosen Shopify store.
  3. Select one or more products to list that don't have the error or listed icons by their entry (or filter for unlisted) by selecting/ticking the left hand box for the product(s).
  4. Click on list at the bottom of the screen.
  5. Avasam should report 'item listed successfully'.
  6. The screen will refresh. You may need to change the filter settings to show the product(s).
  7. If there is an error with the process, then this will be reflected by an error icon (see below). Otherwise the status will change to listed.

Should an error be reported, try to identify the issue. If necessary you can contact support 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.

Updating listings

If you want to update listings, price etc for one of more products on Shopify, then you can do so as follows:

  9. If there is an error with the process, then this will be reflected by the error icon (see below). Otherwise the status will change to listed.

Deleting listings

If you no longer want a product to be listed on Shopify, then you arrange this by following these steps:

  1. Open listing manager.
  2. Open the listings option for the selected Shopify store.
  3. Select 1 or more products that are listed (you can filter for unlisted) by selecting/ticking the left hand box for the product(s).
  4. Click on action at the top of the screen.
  5. Select delete.
  6. Avasam should report 'item removed successfully'.

When 1 or more products have been selected, the action drop down allows you to choose whether to list, save or delete those products.

Listing manager

The listing manager can be opened from the menu to the left of the Avasam screen. This allows you to add products to your Shopify 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 Shopify 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:
