Automated product-entry for drop-shipping

Adding 500 new products in under 10 minutes

Setting the scene

A multi-channel retailer with over 25 physical locations, three eCommerce websites and one marketplace, it has an internal product range of 50.000 products.

However, they want to expand the product range to cover more ground and establish their online market dominance without having a PIM (Product information management is the process of managing all the information required to market and sell products through distribution channels).

The Challenge(s)

Adding products one by one is a slow, time-intensive process. Combine that with the sad reality that most products never sell - we want to ensure you don't waste time getting the first version of the product data out there. And create a record-time-to-market time.

Additionally, the SKU must match the internal SKU to allow for the regular stream of operations when fulfilling and billing orders.

How did we solve it?

By creating a small interface and knowing the supplier's file format, we created a small interface to upload the files.

This tooling will check each item, determine which are to be grouped (e.g. various sizes for the same product) and match these with the internal SKU, known by the legacy ERP(Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a type of software system that helps organizations automate and manage core business processes for optimal performance).

In case of errors, the user can see them, make the adjustment and forward the product to the Magento website.

What are the results?

The operator can upload about 500 new products in a matter of minutes by using this interface, compared to 12 hours when replacing SKUs manually and uploading them one at a time.
