Offer

What's an offer?

An offer represents the commercial offer made by a seller to a product. Thus, a seller can have a catalog of offers but an offer is only defined on one product
Note: a seller can have multiple offers on the same SKU in different states (New, Used Good ...)

 
NEW : CdiscountPRO is coming! Offers can easily be published in our new Business-to-business Marketplace

OFFERS REPLACEMENT

This method provide you an easy way to update only the stock and the price of one or more of your offers. By using this method, you don't have to remind all details of each each offers. The full update method allow you to : - create one or more new offers - update one, several or your whole catalog of offers This method is proposed to clean up your catalog offers. Sequentially, your catalog of offers

will be emptied of all its offers, then refilled with ONLY the deals present in your package.

All offers which will not be present in your package of offers will be unpublished Please use this method sparingly and prefer as much as possible the use of the full update method.

 

 

How to manager your offers ?

 

 

Process of update / creation offers

 

An offer must contain the following details :

  • The product's reference
  • Specific Seller identification

  • Flash sale : publish a reduction during a short time, in order to boost your volume of orders.
  • Sales : during legal sales periods, publication of your offer to which a reduction rate has been applied
  • Price alignment : our system can align your selling price, to always offered the lowest price in our Marketplace. In addition, the parameter setting a floor price will allow you to keep control of the lowest selling price.
