Back Market API Account Integration


Overview

Back Market is a well-known marketplace for selling refurbished Apple goods and other devices. You can find a wide range of electronics, including smartphones, laptops, tablets, gaming consoles, cameras, headphones, and more.

Back Market works with certified refurbishers who test and repair items before they are listed. By reselling products, Back Market helps to minimize the environmental impact associated with manufacturing new devices.

Sellercloud integrates with Back Market through API. The two platforms are integrated with the following:

  • Listing Creation
  • Price Sync and Update
  • Product Creation
  • Quantity Sync
  • Order Sync
  • Shipping Sync
  • International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI)
We currently support two separate types of BackMarket Integrations: the one outlined in this article and our Legacy Integration. The two cannot work simultaneously in one Sellercloud Account, as this may lead to duplicate orders and errors.

Prerequisites

BackmarketServices must be enabled for this workflow. Contact Sellercloud Support to ensure the service is installed on your server.

To obtain a Back Market authentication token for the integration:

  1. Go to your Back Market Back Office and click the Integrations tab
  2. Under the My Interactions section
    1. If you already have Sellercloud integrated through plugins, delete the existing one, refresh the page, and click Add new integration to get an API token.
    2. If this is the first time you are integrating Sellercloud, click Add new integration.

  1. Navigate to Settings Companies > Manage Companies.
  2. Click on the green plus button at the bottom of the page to create a new company.
  3. Populate the fields.
    1. Company name – for example, Back Market Canada.
    2. Selling Country Code – for example, to integrate with Back Market Canada, select CA.
    3. Currency – for example, to integrate with Back Market Canada, select CAD.
    4. Contact Name
    5. Email
  4. Click Next.

Once you have configured a company with the correct country code and currency, follow the integration steps from the above section.
