Groupon Marketplace Account Integration


In this article, you will learn how to link your Groupon Marketplace and Sellercloud accounts in order to post products, manage listings and enable automatic updates.

Integrate with Groupon Marketplace

Sellercloud integrates with Groupon Marketplace using both an API connection and EDI documents. Orders are processed through the API connection while inventory is sent in EDI documents to a VAN

  1. The customer must first create a Groupon account.
  2. Go to obtain an API Key.
  3. Obtain a Seller ID from your Groupon account.
  4. Sellercloud requests unshipped and NON EXPORTED orders from Groupon. By default, Groupon will drop orders into an email attached to the account. This marks them as exported and Sellercloud will not be able to download them. Make sure to disable this setting before going live with this channel.
  5. In Sellercloud, go to SettingsCompanies > Manage Companies > Select a company > Toolbox > Groupon Marketplace > General Settings.
  6. Check the box for Groupon Marketplace Enabled.Groupon Enabled
  7. Fill in your credentials provided by Groupon Marketplace > Save.
  8. Go to FTP Settings and fill out the related FTP credentials. These use VAN credentials.
  9. Click Save.
  10. Click Actions > Test FTP Credentials.Test credentials
  11. Check the Enable order downloadenable tracking export and enable inventory upload boxes when you are ready to go live with the channel.
