If you need to link with Channable through your Lightspeed account, here is how to do it.
1) Install the app in your Lightspeed app store
For Lightspeed we have three of our subscriptions made available through an app: Small for up to 5,000 products / 3 export feeds, Medium for up to 15,000 products / 6 export feeds and Large for up to 30,000 products / 15 export feeds. You can find these 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 write 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. If you are already logged in to Channable you will be logged in automatically.
Note: Do you already have an account with Channable and you want to add a second shop? Select "I already have an account" and log in with your email address and password.
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 a 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 all fields
Channable automatically reads out all information of your items in Lightspeed and automatically compares them with our internal fields as they are recognized (such as price, description, title etc). You can choose a field from "map" with our internal fields or type in your own custom name.
You can also opt for additional (blank) fields to your feed. These fields can be used for example to fill later 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".
6) Overview items
Under "Items" you can find all 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.
7) Create your exports
In the "Feeds" section you can add an export channel, an affiliate marketplace or comparison website such as Google Shopping. Choose a channel and your data will be automatically put in the requested format. In the bottom right corner you can easily search for the channel, like in the picture above. If your channel is not on the list, please contact us and our experts will add it for you as soon as possible.
You can repeat this step for each channel you want to link your products to.
8) Filter and edit your feed
After adding a new channel, you can perform a variety of complex operations on your data feed via a clear and intuitive interface. For example, you can filter products by price or size available before sending it to a specific channel. Also calculations, merging information or adding UTM codes per export is effortless.
With easy "if ... then" statements you can now make every possible adaptation to your data feed. Create your ideal data feed with Channable!
