This document describes how to set up Pixmania Pixplace integration within Linnworks. Here you can also find information about what functions Linnworks can perform while working with Pixmania and how to configure this channel.
Setting up Pixmania integration
Pixmania integration allows the system to:
Automatically download new orders from Pixmania.
Mark items as dispatched on Pixmania.
Send out confirmation emails to eBay registered email address.
Submit tracking numbers.
Synchronise stock levels.
To set up Pixmania Order Book integration go to Settings > Channel Integration. From this screen you can add, delete and modify selling channels that you wish Linnworks to integrate with.
Click the Add new channel button on the right of the screen to bring up the New Channel selection screen. Now select Pixmania from the list and click Integrate.
You will be presented with the Pixmania Account Setup screen, which will walk you through the process of integrating your Pixmania account with Linnworks.
Enter the following details in the Pixmania Account Setup screen:
Merchant Name – A nickname for this Pixmania account, usually the name of your business.
Username – The username for Pixmania API.
Password – The password for the Pixmania API.
Secret Key – You can obtain your serial key from the Merchant Information section on the Pixmania back office site.
Update Order Status – Sets whether you want Linnworks to update order status on Pixmania after it is processed in Linnworks.
Inventory Levels Synchronisation – Set whether you want Linnworks to update stock levels on Pixmania.
Click the Test button to ensure that all your details are correct. If you receive an Authentication failed error, then you have not entered a valid Username and Password combination. Click the Save button to add Pixmania to your list of channels.
Configuring Pixmania Integration
Once you have set up your Pixmania account to work with Linnworks it will appear in the list of channels on the Channel Integration screen. From here you can enable / disable integration and inventory sync for each individual channel as well as configuration and inventory mapping tools.
To enable / disable individual channel integration within Linnworks, simply click the small circle in the Enabled column that corresponds to the channel you wish to alter. A green light means that the channel is enabled in Linnworks, while a red light denotes that it is disabled.
The same process applies to the Inventory Sync function, clicking a circle will toggle between enabled and disabled for the specified channel. A green light means that the Linnworks will sync inventory with this channel while a red light indicates that it will not.
Clicking the Config button for a specified channel will bring up the Account Config menu for that channel.
This is the same screen that appears when you first set up Pixmania Integration. From here you can make changes to the settings, remembering to Test and click Save when you have finished making alterations.
To setup product condition on a per product basis rather than the default condition (new), go to Inventory Control -> My Inventory
Search and Select the item that needs a Pixmania Condition, click Edit Item and select the Extended Properties tab.
Enter the name as "Pixmania Condition" (without the quotes) and the value for the condition, select "Condition" as the type. Click Save.
This will now send the condition code to pixmania. If no condition is set then the default will be provided.
