How to create a vendor's inventory feed

  • Updated


In this article, we describe how to create a vendor's inventory feed.

Getting started

Automatically sync and publish products using an inventory feed. Setting up an inventory feed usually requires generating a set of API credentials. Or, setting up a CSV file, XML file, or Google Sheets to import from.

Selecting a platform for catalog import

Onport can connect with a variety of inventory platforms to sync product details with your store. The first thing you need to do when setting up an inventory feed is to select the platform.

You can find an overview of the supported platforms and their corresponding instructions under Contacts > Dropship Providers > (choose vendor) > Products tab > New inventory feed:

Syncing pricing

Onport can automatically sync pricing from your vendors' feed to your store. If your vendor's items are on sale (for example, they have discounted an item in their store), this will also be synced with your store.

Under the feed settings, you can turn on/off the pricing sync. You also have the option to change the prices by a percentage or a fixed amount. For example, you might want to add a fixed amount per item to cover processing fees from your dropship provider:

Sync stock

You can choose to use the vendor's inventory policy or override it. You can also choose to sync inventory updates, just specific items, or none at all:
