Beslist is a Dutch marketplace. This article will inform you about two necessary elements of a Beslist connection; an order connection and a feed.
An order connection is required by Beslist for a connection with their platform. An order connection serves multiple purposes. It syncs the orders you receive when your products are ordered with your eCommerce platform and it also provides real stock updates so that when an products is no longer in stock it cannot be ordered via Beslist. There are two ways to setup an order connection between your eCommerce platform and Beslist. The first option is to contact Beslist and build a direct connection between their system and your eCommerce platform. However, another option is to use Channable Orders. Channable Orders provide a connection between Beslist and your eCommerce platform through a plugin; you will not need to build a direct connection. You can check out the Channable Orders page for more info on the use of Channable Orders and to check if Channable Orders is possible with your eCommerce platform. Please note that using Channable Orders results in additional costs!
Besides an order connection you will need a feed to send your products to Beslist. If you chose to use Channable Orders we will be happy to setup the Beslist feed for you. Or of course if the Beslist feed will be your first we will also be happy to setup the feed for you. You can contact us if you wish for us to setup your Beslist feed.
If you chose to build your own direct order connection with Beslist you can setup the feed following the steps below.
- Create a new feed for Beslist
After creating a Beslist account login to your Channable account and create a new feed for Beslist.
- Create rules and fill out the finalize step
Categorizing is not necessary for Beslist. Instead they want to receive your shop's categories. Create rules to optimize your productdata. Consult the value suggestions in the Finalize step as to what exactly the content of each field should be. In the Finalize step you can then link your optimized productdata fields to the fields of the Beslist. Here you can also link your category field to send your categories to Beslist. In the clip below these steps are also explained as well as a few basic rules.
Send the feed URL to your Beslist contact person
Note: In order to receive the feed URL you need to have activated the project and the Beslist feed!
When you have finished all steps (rules and finalize) you can find the feed URL in the Preview step. Copy the feed URL and send it to your contact person at Beslist for a feed check.
Optimize your feed based on feedback
Beslist follows high standard for their feeds, which is why you should not be surprised if you receive feedback after sending your feed. You can tackle their feedback by consulting our help center article about optimizing your feeds based on feedback.
Note: Every 2 hours Beslist updates the following fields from the feed: prices, delivery time, shipping costs, stock and the display column. New items are imported and processed from 7 pm.
