Maxeda has two channels of the same Mirakl marketplace, Brico and Praxis. Where Praxis is covering the Dutch market and Brico the Belgian market. You need to register separate shops for both sales channels. The setup is exactly the same, you just have to create the right connection. The article for Maxeda Brico can be found here.
Step 1: Add a new Maxeda Praxis connection
The Maxeda API uses the Mirakl platform, which means you will need a Mirakl account to start sending your product listings to Maxeda Praxis.
When you have a Mirakl Maxeda Praxis account, go to "[Your company] settings menu (in the top right corner) > Connections > Add connection". Click on "+ Add a new connection" and you will see a screen, where you can select Maxeda Praxis. Fill in the label for your connection, for example, Praxis. Then click on ''Connect with Maxeda Praxis''. You will be redirected to the environment where you can log in with your Mirakl-credentials. After logging in, you will be redirected back to Channable where the connection will be available.
Step 2: Add a new Maxeda Praxis API in Channable
Now go to the API's overview, in your project. And click on Add new API, Select the Maxeda Praxis connection you just made, and give your new API a name.
Select the field you want to use for Unique ID per item (we recommend the 'id' field), and the Language in which you do categorizations and setup attributes. You can also add a master rule group here if you want. Click on "Continue" to finish creating the new Maxeda Praxis API.
Step 3: Create your product listings in Channable
Once you have created the Maxeda Praxis API you can set up your product data by following the steps of the API.
Create different rules to optimize your product data. Take a look at our common rules support article for some examples.
Here you can find our preset template for the product listings. All you have to do is to fill it out by clicking on the field itself and selecting what you would like to go in there. For example, the field 'Title' should display the title of your product and so on. When you have finished setting up the product listings, just click 'save' at the bottom of the screen.
Tip! Notice the question mark behind every field, if you hover over the question mark you will see the description of the field and suggestions for possible values.
Almost done! Next up is filling in the fields in the Attributes step. Select the category you want to optimize first. An example of what should be in front of you now can be seen in the screenshot below. A more detailed explanation of what to do in the Attributes step can be found in our Attributes support article.
Step 4: Send your products to Maxeda Praxis
Almost there, your product listings are ready to be sent. If you have not activated your project, go to Setup > Project settings on the left-hand side of the screen and click 'activate project'. After, go back to the APIs overview and go to "Your Maxeda Praxis API Name" > Settings, where you activate the API by selecting "Activate API". After you have completed this step, navigate back to the APIs overview and select the blue "Run now" button to send your product listings to Maxeda Praxis.
Step 5: Check your product listings for errors
After you have sent your product listings to Maxeda Praxis, go to the Results tab of your Maxeda Praxis API. Click in the filter on 'error'. Now you can see which product listings have errors and are not placed. Click on a specific error to see more information on what is causing the error. If you have solved some errors by changing the settings or product information, re-run the Maxeda Praxis API to see the new results.
