Nextail is a plaform which enables you to send your products to the Dutch marketplaces Blokker, Xenos, Intertoys, Bart Smit, Cook&Co and Leenbakker.
Note: You need valid EAN codes to send your products to a Nextail marketplace
How do I start sending to a Nextail marketplace?
If you have an account of a Nextail marketplace, you can head over to your Channable account and go to APIs > Add new API. Now click on "Create new connection". Next, you select the Nextail marketplace logo, choose a name for your new connection (e.g. "yourshop - Nextail") and click "create" afterwards (see below).
API key & Shop ID
To create the connection you need to enter an API key and a shop ID. you can find the API key created in your Nextail seller central My user settings by clicking on your email address in the top right corner. After that you go to "API key" tab and click "generate API key" if there is no key available yet. Of there is an API key available, you can use that one, you don't have to create a new one.
You can also find the Shop ID in your seller central. First select the shop you want to send products to in the top right corner. Next, go to My Account > Settings to find your Shop ID:
If you have both the API key and the Shop ID you can finish creating your connection in Channable. If you did so, choose your fresh Nextail marketplace connection in the next screen and choose a name for your marketplace (e.g. "Nextail") and click continue.
Start building the product listings!
Once you have created the marketplace, you'll be sent to the categories page. The categories step enables you to convert your own categorization to that of Nextail (by using the Generate categories feature), or create new categories from scratch, as seen in the screenshot below.
After you are finished categorizing your products, it's time to create some rules in order to optimize your product data (e.g. excluding certain products). Some common rules to use can be found here. After creating the rules you want to implement, go to build to start building your product listings.
On the build phase you connect the fields containing your EAN code/gtin, title, description, stock and price, similar to how it's done in the screenshot below.
Almost done! Next up is filling in the fields in the attribute builder. Click the ''Attributes'' phase and select the category you want to optimize first. An example of what should be in front of you now can be seen in the screenshot below. A more detailed explanation of the attribute builder's use can be found here.
Check & Send
Next, go to the preview step to check the products that are about to be sent to your Nextail account. If that looks right, go to the Settings tab of your API and activate the API:
Finally, go to the APIs panel and click "Run now" on your newly set Nextail API to start sending the product listings!
Note that the products need to be sent to a test environment first. After Nextail accepts your products, you can send them to the live environment. Please contact our support team to make sure you are sending to the right environment.
