How to install BrandsGateway's app using Shopify's custom app?

Go back to BrandsGateway.

The import to your Shopify store is a simple 3-step process.

Installing BrandsGateway’s app for Shopify

1. Click the ‘Accept’ button on the email that you have received.

2. By clicking on the ‘Accept’ button you will get redirected to Shopwoo where you need to Register.

3. Insert your Shopify domain inside the 'URL field' and the 'Access Token', then click on 'Validate API'.

Note: Please follow our Step-by-step guide to find your Access Token.

Setting up as a dropshipper

1. Set your store’s 'currency', 'language', and 'price rounding'.

2. Product data synchronization

Synch settings show what features will be influenced by BrandsGateway. For example, if you want to change descriptions or titles, or translate them in your own language, you need to disable the 'Titles' and 'Descriptions' settings. Otherwise, once the system gets updated, products will be back to their state as in BrandsGateway. However, we recommend keeping the 'Categories' sync.

Once you are done with setting the synchronization settings, you need to accept our Terms and Conditions and click on 'Register'.

3. Brands filter

Here you can choose to include or exclude certain Brands.

4. Vendors filter

Here you can choose to include or exclude certain Warehouse’s.

Importing our products to your Shopify store

At the next step, you can start importing our inventory to your store.

1. Category mapping

Category Mapping is the process of matching BrandsGateway’s main categories and subcategories of products with your Shopify Manual Collections. Category Mapping is needed for the import of our products to your store. Once accessed ShopWoo > Stores Relationship > Category Mapping, you can select our category layout on the left (what you want to import) and connect to your Shopify collections on the right. Products from selected categories will be imported to your store.

2. Price Mark-up and Fixed shipping costs

In category mapping, you can add markup for each category and a fixed shipping cost to be included in a product price.

Your selling price can be calculated with the following formula:
Wholesale price (BrandsGateway price) * Markup + Shipping cost = Your selling price

Example: €100 *2 + 20 = €220

You can always change markup and add a fixed shipping cost that will be added to the item price. Prices will be updated within 24 hours.

Once you are done, click on start import. The importing process takes several hours.

1. Manuel collections

In order to 'Add Mapping' in Shopwoo, it is necessary to create 'Manual Collections' in your Shopify store that will be matched with BrandsGateway’s categories of products. If you don’t create 'Manual Collections' in advance, you won’t be able to add mappings. Your ‘Manual Collections’ can be organized as you wish, but we recommend keeping them similar to BrandsGateway’s collections.

- How to create a 'Manual Collection' on Shopify?

Under 'Products' in the 'Menu' on your left side in your Shopify Store select 'Collections';
From the upper right corner select 'Add Collection';
Write the title of your new collection;
Select 'Manual Collection' in the 'Collection Type' panel;
Click 'Save' in the upper right corner.

2. Automated collections

You can create different 'Automated Collections'’ once you have created your 'Manual Collections' and mapped them with BrandsGateway’s product categories and subcategories. Creating 'Automated Collections' can help you filter your collections based on diverse filter tags like 'Product Title', 'Product Vendor’, 'Inventory Stock', etc.

Shopwoo automatically creates tags that can enable you to better filter your collections and create different 'Automated Collections' after the mapping of your main 'Manual Collections' with BrandsGateway’s categories and subcategories.
