Creating a Bluepark Configurator

To create a Bluepark configurator:

  1. Go to Settings > Others > select Bluepark in the drop-down menu
  2. Click +Add New
  3. In the configurator wizard screen add the following details:

    bluepark config wizard

    • Configurator Name: enter a name for the configurator for your own convenience. The configurator name can help differentiate between certain groups of items as the same configurator can be used to create listings for similar items
    • Channel: select the Bluepark account that this configurator will use when creating new listings
  4. Click Finish

The configurator is now created and you can configure other settings.

Editing a Bluepark Configurator

When the configurator is created, make sure that you have configured all the sections. Below you will find a detailed guide for each of them

Categories

In the Categories window, you can select those categories that you wish to use for this configurator. The number on the button will stand for the number of categories that you have selected.

Categories need to be set up in the Bluepark back-end before they will appear in the Categories list via the Category Manager.

If there are any changes to the list of categories on Bluepark, the configurator will need to be refreshed - click Settings > Refresh Categories to download the updated categories from your channel. This will take a few seconds.

The Categories screen is divided into three parts:

  • Available categories: all categories that you have created on the channel will be available here. Select categories that you wish to use for this configurator by clicking the + button.
  • Selected categories: every listing created via this configurator will be able to use categories from this table. Tick any category as Default if you wish to use a certain category every time for this configurator.
  • General Settings: categories can be mapped through the extended property of the item. You can select several categories from the drop-down menu.

Description

The Description window contains the HTML for the design of the Bluepark listing. You can add and edit the HTML description that will be used for listings created via this configurator. A detailed guide is here.

Attributes

In the Attributes column, select the attributes that you wish to use for this configurator. The number on the button will stand for the number of attributes that you have selected.

bluepark config attributes

The list of Bluepark attributes is preset and custom attributes will not be downloaded into the configurator if they were created on the Bluepark back-end in Catalogue > Product Manager window. However, a custom attribute can be added in Linnworks by using the +Add New button. In this case, when the listing is created, the attribute will be added to Catalogue > Product Manager window on Bluepark and in Product Description on the listing.

The Attribute section consists of two parts:

  • Available attributes: add attributes from the Bluepark back-end that you wish to use for this configurator by clicking the + button.
  • Selected attributes: every listing created via this configurator will be able to use attributes from this table. When selected, you can specify where Linnworks should pick the information up from - the extended property of the item or the Default Value column in this screen.

Variations (only for variation listings)

To create a variation listing, you need to have a variation-compatible configurator that has variation attribute(s) added to the Variations column. As an example, it can be colour, size or condition, so each variation child item will have its own value that will be available in a drop-down menu on the listing.

bluepark config variations1

To add a variation attribute, click the +Add New button > type a name of the attribute > click +Add. From the Extended Property drop-down box select the extended property that should be used in the template. If, for some reason, any of the variation child items will not have that extended property, use the Default Value cell to add a generic value for such items.

If you want to display images on the listing from the main item only and keep all other images disabled, please tick the Use main item images only box. Otherwise, each child item will have its own image.

Once all of the above is set, you can proceed to My Inventory screen to create listings.
