Prerequisites


Before beginning the launch process with any of the launch service options, you will need to complete the following steps:

  1. Create Your Newegg Seller Account – To begin the process of selling on the Newegg Marketplace you must have or create an Newegg Seller Account for the desired Newegg marketplace. Visit the following sites today to create your account:
     
  2. Obtain your Newegg API Key – Once your Newegg seller account is created, you will need to obtain a ChannelAdvisor API Key for your Seller Account. To obtain your API Key, email datafeeds@newegg.com with the following request:

 

Hello,

I would like to request a ChannelAdvisor API Key to allow ChannelAdvisor to integrate with my Newegg Seller Account.  

My Store Name Is: <insert your Newegg store name here>
My Newegg Seller Portal Default Email Address is: <insert the email address used to setup your Newegg Seller Portal Account here>

Thank you for your assistance.

You will receive a response from datafeeds@newegg.com that contains your Newegg Seller ID and Newegg API Key. These values will be entered on the Marketplaces > Newegg > Settings page.

 

  1. Ensure that all of your Manufacturers are available on Newegg – Newegg requires that the Manufacturer for each product exist in their system before you list the product. You can see a full list of Manufacturers by logging into your Newegg Seller Portal and navigating to your Manage Items > Manufacturer view and selecting the Manufacturer List tab.

    If your manufacturers are not currently supported please download this spreadsheet and list the manufacturers you wish to add and send to datafeeds@newegg.com

Configure Inventory


 


Before listing your products on the Newegg Marketplace it is important to be aware of Newegg's listing requirements. Located within your Newegg Seller Portal is an extensive series of documents that explain all of the different data requirements for products in all of the various Newegg categories. Familiarizing yourself with this venue and the documents located here is a fundamental step to listing successfully on Newegg.

  1. Determine Your Newegg Sub-Categories – Determine which Newegg sub-categories your products belong in and ensure that there are no restrictions on those sub-categories. To see a full list of sub-categories download the Newegg Sub-Category List .
  2. Add Newegg Sub-Category to Your Inventory – Once you have determined the sub-categories in which you are going to sell you are now ready to prepare your inventory. 
  3. Review Product Requirements (optional) – Newegg requires sub-category specific product information. While the ChannelAdvisor Product Mapping Template removes much of the complexity involved in sending this information, it is still best to review Newegg's data requirements for each sub-category that you will sell in.

Configure Settings


 


Configuring your Newegg Settings will set the foundation for your account integration with the marketplace. You will select a label that will be associated with the inventory you want to send to Newegg, define quantity settings and enter account information.

List Your Products


 


Once you have completed the Setup Guide you will need to map the Marketplace Template in ChannelAdvisor. ChannelAdvisor Product Mapping Templates are used to define the product data that will be sent to the marketplace. Begin by navigating to your Marketplaces > Newegg > Product Mapping > Template view. The template will contain all the fields accepted by the Marketplace and will allow you to specify what inventory information should be sent for each product listing.

View the Listing Your Product to Newegg page for additional information.

 

Activate your Integration


 


At this stage your account is ready to be activated to communicate and exchange data with the Newegg marketplace. First you will assign the label you selected in your Newegg settings to your designated inventory items. Next you'll activate the marketplace feed. Please navigate again to Marketplaces > Newegg > Settings to complete this step. View the Activating Your Marketplaces Integration page for more details.

Please note: If you are a Newegg seller on any of the sites (US, Business, or Canada), your Newegg Category Manager will want to review your content prior to publishing your listings on the Newegg buying site.

Until this review is completed, your Newegg account status will be inactive. During this time, ChannelAdvisor will continue to send product creation and updates to Newegg Seller Portal. Once your Newegg Category Manager approves your catalog, your Newegg account status then changes to active and your products will be published to the proper Newegg buying site.

 

Manage Your Listings


 

 

Once you have activated your Newegg integration you should begin seeing activity almost immediately. You may notice that some of your products have not listed properly or have not listed at all. It will be crucial that you consistently manage your Newegg account to monitor these issues. ChannelAdvisor provides you with a dashboard that assists you with this effort. The Newegg Product Overview page is a marketplace-specific dashboard that provides you with an overview of the current status of all your products assigned to the Newegg Marketplace. You can access this page via the menu from Marketplaces > Newegg > Products > Overview.

 

Fulfill/Cancel Orders


 


Sales are handled through the integrated shopping cart of each Marketplace. Order information details are then imported to ChannelAdvisor in the All Sales view where you can then manage your fulfillment process, update shipping and tracking information and process any refunds or cancellations.
