This article will help you create ads for your items on Marktplaats Admarkt. Note: If you do not own a Marktplaats Admarkt account, you can create one here.
1) Logout Admarkt zakelijk
The first thing to do is go to Admarkt zakelijk and log out.
Important: not logging out can cause unexpected problems later in the process.
2) Create new API
To create a new API connection click on the API panel on the left hand side of the screen. After you have done that, click 'Add new API'.
3) Add new connection
Next, select a name for your marketplace. After doing so, click 'Add new connection' and choose Admarkt from the options given. This will take you to a window where you can login into the Admarkt account you have.
4) Accept the connection with Admarkt
Log into Admarkt and accept the connection with Channable. After this you will be redirected back to Channable.
5) Setup the marketplace
The next step is to choose a 'unique ID per product' from the drop down menu. This is the code that is unique (different) for each individual product. Make sure that the code you choose really is a unique code: otherwise an error will occur.
To finish up your settings choose a connection status. Usually if you are first setting up your APIs you would leave it 'inactive'. When you have finished building your marketplaces and you would like to test them choose 'activate but send ads paused' and review your ads in your account on the export platform's side. Last but not least if your test has no errors, select 'Activate API'.
6) Build your ads
Actually building your ads is very simple and fast. With our preset template all you have to do is to fill it out by clicking on the field itself and selecting what you would like to go in there. You can do that by clicking on the plus sign on the right hand side of the field. For instance, the field 'Title' should display the 'Title' of your product and so on. Notice the question mark behind every field, if you hover over the question mark you will see the description of the field and suggestions for possible values. When you have finished setting up the ads, just click 'save' on the bottom of the screen.
Important: For the description and description footer, the only allowed html tags are:
<i> <em> <b> <strong> <ul> <li> <u> <br/>
7) Add your products' attributes
For Marktplaats, Channable has an "Attributes" phase. The Attribute Builder is a convenient feature that gives you a clear overview of that API's required attributes per category. This is especially useful if you sell several different kinds of products that have very specific attribute requirements. To learn more about the attribute builder click here.
8) Send ads to Admarkt
Almost there, sending your items does not take more than 30 sec. If you have not activated your webshop just go to the Settings panel on the left hand side of the screen and click 'activate webshop'. After, go back to the APIs > "Your Admarkt API" > Settings and choose 'active - send products paused' (to test) or choose 'active - send products live' so they are visible to everyone. After you have completed this step you can click the Preview tab of your Admarkt API.
Once you have sent you ads to Marktplaats go to the Preview tab of your API. Click filter on 'error'. Now you can see which ads have errors and are not placed. See this page on how to correct errors.
