OpenSky Account Integration

Overview

OpenSky is an online marketplace that connects consumers with a wide range of products and sellers. You sell under your own name through virtual storefronts, complete with a branded banner and company description. The platform offers a diverse selection of items, including clothing, electronics, home decor, jewelry, beauty products, and more.

You can integrate OpenSky into Sellercloud using FTP to exchange files. The integration supports:

  • Exporting product inventory and pricing to OpenSky
  • Importing orders from OpenSky
  • Exporting tracking information to OpenSky

If necessary, you can contact Sellercloud Support to request additional customizations or other plugins for this integration. Any such modification will be billable.

Inventory Export

This plugin exports inventory from Sellercloud to OpenSky in a .csv file via FTP. The plugin exports the following information: 

  • ItemID – The Sellercloud SKU
  • GroupItemId – The value of the custom product column
  • Product/Configuration Title – The product name
  • Quantity – The product Aggregate Qty – Safety Qty (from the custom product column)
  • Price – The product site price

The GroupItemID and Safety Qty use custom product columns named OYGROUPITEMID and OPENSKY_SAFETYQTY, respectively.

Optionally, you can enable only specific products for OpenSky by setting their OpenSky_Enabled  Custom Column for Products to True:

  • For one product at a time: go to the Product Details Page > click Toolbox and select Custom Columns > click Edit, update the OpenSky_Enabled column, and Save.
  • For multiple products in bulk: follow the steps to Bulk Update Products and use the OpenSky_Enabled column – set it to True for all products you want to enable.

Unlike core integrations, plugin integrations don’t require products to be in the company with the scheduled tasks. The export will include the products you select with your Saved Search.

Next, create a Saved Search for products filtered by OpenSky_Enabled True. Optionally, you can add more filters to the search to narrow down the export further.
