Darty is integrating with Fnac and this may affect the setup of your Darty and/or FNAC API. In this article, you can read more about the re-platforming and what this means for your APIs in the article.
Darty is currently using the Mirakl platform for creating products, creating offers, and handling orders, but they are going to transition to BOMP, which is the new system for both Darty and Fnac to create product listings and handle offers and orders. However, the websites of both Fnac and Darty will remain separate even after the unification.
More information can be found in these articles provided by Fnac/Darty:
- https://fnacdartymarketplace.com/en/focus_catalogue_en/ is about phase 1 in general
- https://fnacdartymarketplace.com/en/focus_catalogue_en/back-office-projet-training-documentation/ contains a training document that has a link to the API documentation.
This project from Fnac/Darty is happening in 2 steps. In the first step, which happens in Q1 of 2023, they are combining product content creation on both Fnac and Darty so that both marketplaces use Fnac MCM (Fnac Product API in Channable) for creating new products. To support this, you will have to make some changes in Channable, notably when you're only selling on Darty.
The second step, which was originally planned for Q1 2024, was moved to the 22nd of May 2023. This means that offers and orders are now being handled for both Fnac and Darty in the new Fnac & Darty back-office.
So there are different scenarios possible that also require different actions. Below you can find an overview of these:
- I sell on both Fnac and Darty:
In order to create products for both Fnac & Darty, you can use our Fnac Darty Products API which automatically creates products in your Mirakl account for both marketplaces. If you are selling products on Darty that you are not selling on Fnac, you are advised to also create these products through the Fnac DartyProducts API.
In order to push your offers on Fnac & Darty, you need to set up two Fnac Darty offers + orders APIs. To sell your products on Fnac, select your Fnac Darty offers + orders connection that contains your Fnac Shop ID. To sell your products on Darty, select your Fnac Darty offers + orders connection that contains your Darty Shop ID.
If you have orders add-ons for both marketplaces, the way orders are being handled by Channable remains the same. Both order connections will use the respective Fnac Darty offers + orders connections with either Fnac Shop ID or Darty Shop ID.
- I only sell on Fnac:
This re-platforming has no impact on you and everything remains the same.
- I only sell on Darty:
Since April 1st, you need to create your product listings for Darty in your Mirakl account via our Fnac Darty Products API.
In general, you can follow the steps below:
- Create a Mirakl Fnac Darty Catalogue Manager (MCM) account. According to Fnac/Darty, you should have already got an invitation to create this account.
- Create a new Fnac Darty product connection in Channable following step 1 in this article.
- Create a new Fnac Darty product API to create new products in Darty.
Since May 22nd, product offers are pushed to the new Fnac & Darty backend. To sell your products on Darty, select your Fnac Darty offers + orders connection that contains your Darty Shop ID.
If you have an orders add-on for Darty, the way orders are being handled by Channable remains the same. The order connections will use the Fnac Darty offers + orders connection with your Darty Shop ID.
