In this guide, we will take a look at the differences between using our ChannelConnector plugin and the standard Sello platform.
If your main business is using a platform such as WooCommerce or Prestashop, you'll have the option of either staying in your shop, keeping both order and product management there, or importing your products to Sello, making it your default platform.
If you are currently using or are planning on using either Shopify or Magento with Sello, the only option is using our ChannelConnector plugin.
The key differences between the two set-ups are which of the two systems control the way we send products to the marketplace.
Sello acts as the master system and all changes made here will be sent to all connected channels, this includes your webshop. The only thing that will be imported from your shop apart from the initial, one-time import, are product stock and orders.
There are some advantages to this set-up, these include having access to all of Sello's powerful product and order-related features. Sello was made with product management and order processing in mind, so all features in Sello are designed to help make your life easier in that regard.
These include features such as bulk-editing for both products and orders, a slew of import and export tools, connections to TA-systems, making booking shipments easy, and much more.
Your webshop controls all product data and any changes made here will be synchronized to all connected channels by way of the Sello platform.
The advantages of this are only really felt if you are already at home in your own system and moving is not an option.
Using this set-up keeps all order processing and product management in your own platform.
Basically, the core functionality of Sello, in the comfort of your own webshop.
Our ChannelConnector plugin is compatible with the following systems:
