Overview

Sell Ingram Micro, Techdata & 100 other suppliers products

Populate your Magento site with virtual stock and drop ship the products to your customers – for IT, Telecoms, Ink, office and consumer electronics products.

Our solution allows you to:

  1. Take datafeeds from multiple IT product distributors with whom you have accounts
  2. It matches all the products with full product descriptions, images and categories from Icecat and the suppliers
  3. Our tool allows you to select what to sell – how to organise the products and adds a margin on to your cost prices so you profit – also to publish, exclude, move and rename categories and products
  4. The resulting product list is then pumped in to your Magento site daily

You can install the plug in and populate your site with 7000 sample products free of charge!

What is required:

  1. To host a Magento site with our plug in you need at least 2GB of ram – ideally 4GB of guaranteed RAM – after all you will have 50,000 products in your site. You will have to ensure you have your server correctly configured
  2. Accounts with the suppliers – some of the suppliers just want you to buy something to have an account – but most make you apply and you need to be a VAT registered business.

What you get:

  1. A site full of products with stock, prices, product descriptions, categories, attribute filters, images, product comparison, related products and more pumped in to Magento automatically
  2. A tool to manage the feed – see screenshot
  3. The ability to see your buy prices as you browse Stock in the Channel
  4. Free support and advice to help you get it working
  5. If you pay
    a.) A template we have designed to suit IT industry plugged in for you

Order process automation services

We have written a tool that polls the Magento orders file and imports them in to our system for electronic fulfillment and then feeds the status and tracking information back in to Magento. Our order processing tool links to Sage and Navision natively and offers an Open API for other systems. Again you can find details of this on our marketing site. Learn about order process automation

This is a major code release which adds a host of new functionality.

We recommend that you install this on a test server before applying to a live site.

We also recommend that you uninstall any previous versions of the plug-in before installing the new version.

The plug-in uses a new format. Please contact us to switch over to the new format.
Here is a list of other enhancements:

Product Reviews
We have partnered with Testseek to provide product reviews sourced from many of the leading product reviewers. Currently we have over 25,000 products reviewed, a number which is growing on a daily basis

PDF Product Descriptions
Our product content now features a number of product descriptions in PDF format. Where we have this available, we now export a link to the PDF




Product Videos
Our product content now features a number of product videos. Where we have this available, we now export a link to the videos

European Character Sets
The plug-in can now deal with the accents common in many European languages

Short Description Field
Our data provider, Icecat have a short description field. This is now imported and added to the short description field in Magento

Weight
Where available, we now export a weight attribute. This information is obtained from both Icecat and distributor feeds, but is not universal

Image on Product Detail
Under our license agreement with Icecat, we are allowed to import a single image for full Icecat products. This image is now displayed on the product detail as well as the summary
EAN Codes
We source EAN codes from a variety of sources including Icecat and the distributors themselves. Previously, all EAN codes which we found were exported. We now export a single EAN code based on which is the most popular from our sources.

Supplier Names
We now display the suppliers of a product as well as their stock and prices as an extra tab on the product detail in the Magento back office and as a mouseover on the order detail

Google Checkout
Google checkout is now enabled by default on products

It is now possible to specify whether a category is included in the Magento navigation by choosing “Hide Navigtion” in the category management section Stock In The Channel

Improved Search
We have added a new field in Magento products Sinch Search Cache, which includes all the search terms generated by Stock In The Channel. This should mean the free text search in Magento is a lot better. To include this information, you will need to add this attribute in the catalog - attributes - manage attributes section

Overwrite Products
The option now exists to completely overwrite existing products in Magento. Previously, products were only merged and updated
