If you have a Lightspeed based webshop, you can import your products in Channable using our app. To do so, follow these steps.
1) Install the Channable app in your Lightspeed app store
For Lightspeed, four of our subscriptions have been made available through an app:
- Small for up to 5,000 products / 3 channels
- Medium for up to 15,000 products / 6 channels
- Large for up to 30,000 products / 15 channels
- Extra Large for up to 70,000 products / 30 channels
You can find these apps in the Lightspeed App Store.
Once you have selected a version, you will be asked for permission to install the read-rights of all products and you will need to enter your Lightspeed login. Channable has no writing privileges.
2) Create your own Channable account
After you install the app you will be redirected to Channable. Create a new account with your name, email address and password.
Note: Do you already have an account with Channable and you want to add a shop? Select "I already have an account" and log in with your email address and password. If you are already logged in to Channable you don't need to login again.
3) Add your shop to Channable
Once logged in, you see a list of all your shops. If you are a new user, your shop will not be added here yet. Add your shop/project by clicking the button "Add new project". You will see a popup where you can enter your webshop's name and URL.
4) Import your products
After creating your shop, you will be forwarded directly to the setup page. Click on "New import connection" and select the Lightspeed icon. Click "Connect with Lightspeed" to finalize the connection.
5) Select the language of the import
If your Lightspeed has the same store in different languages, you can select which storeview you want to import when you install the import. When you want to import multiple languages from Lightspeed, each language should be imported in its own project.
In Lightspeed you can choose from 14 languages for your webshop and 7 languages for your backoffice.
6) Map your fields
Channable automatically reads out all information of your items in Lightspeed and automatically compares them with our internal fields as they are being read (such as price, description, title etc). You can choose a field to "map" with our internal fields or type in your own custom name.
You can also opt to add additional (blank) fields to your feed. These fields can for example be used to later be filled for a specific export channel. Additional fields can be added at any time. You load all the information into Channable by clicking "Save and import".
7) Items overview
Under "Items" you can find all the items from your shop. Depending on the number of items in your shop, it may take a few seconds until all products are fully loaded. By clicking on an item you can view detailed information about it.
