Custom Database + Takealot Marketplace

Custom database Logo Takealot logo

Stock2Shop can pull inventory data from a variety of databases. The only prerequisite is that the database can be accessed via ODBC. We therefore support Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL Server, Pervasive SQL, Hana and many other databases. Let Stock2Shop send product inventory updates from your custom database to the Takealot Marketplace. And if you are doing exclusively lead time orders, you can automate the dropping off of Takealot orders at an FTP location. Here’s how we can help you streamline your workflow.

Sync inventory data

Sync inventory data from your custom database to Takealot Marketplace.

Near real time syncing

Our software continually monitors your database for changes in inventory information and sends these updates to Takealot. So if your pricing or stock levels are adjusted on your database, it won’t be long before these changes reflect on Takealot.

Choose the data to sync

Automatically create and update offers against products that exist in Takealot’s catalogue. Once linked, Stock2Shop can update the following fields:

  • Offer price
  • Recommended retail price
  • Stock availability (for lead time orders)
  • Lead time (the number of days it will take to deliver the product to Takealot)

Run multiple online stores from one custom database

Once you’re integrated with Stock2Shop and are syncing product updates to Takealot, opening data feeds to other ecommerce channels is relatively easy.

Assign a price list

You decide which price list on your database is synced to the offer price and recommended retail price fields on Takealot Marketplace.

Sync inventory from one or multiple warehouses on your custom database

You can choose which warehouse (or combination of warehouses) on your database updates your stock quantities on Takealot Marketplace.

Error management

If an update fails to process to Takealot, an error will appear in your Stock2Shop console and you will be sent an email notification. The error will give an indication of what caused the update failure, and once you’ve rectified the issue, you can reset the update to try again.
