Plugin: Shopware Markets

The plugin Shopware Markets gives you the possibility to offer your products outside your shop on the marketplaces of ebay and Amazon. The plugin automatically places your products on these marketplaces based on your merchant accounts.
In addition, orders received through these marketplaces are transferred directly to Shopware and can be managed there under Orders. 

Each marketplace is represented by its own sales channel in which the configuration is made.

 

Installation

There are several ways to install Shopware Markets.

Firstly, you can obtain and configure the plugin directly during the installation of shopware in the initial setup wizard.

On the other hand, you can go to the Shopware Store in Admin under Settings > System > Plugins > Shopware Store and search for the current Shopware Markets plugin and then install it in your shop. Alternatively, you can also download the Shopware Markets plugin directly from the Shopware Store at store.shopware.com

Integration

After the installation an integration of our partner Brickfox is placed under Settings > System > Integrations. This integration is necessary for the functionality of the plugin.
