With this interface the partner programs of affilinet are available for you. Please be aware, that not every partner program on affilinet is approved for web service, so it may not provide according information. Please check beforehand if the desired partner program provides the information.
First you have to make certain settings in order to connect to affilinet.
Username & Password
You can find this information here (Login > Products > Web Services > Login Data > Product Web Service-Password). Without the entry of these information you cannot connect to affilinet. Make sure, that you enter the correct information and your access is activated. As soon as you save your changes, a connection is made, and the result is presented immediately.
With this option you can determine, with which status new imported products should be defined. You can import, for example, new products as drafts and edit them, before they are publicly visible. Alternatively you can publish them immediately.
You can globally determine, whether the product description should also be imported or not. While importing single products, you will still have the option to decide, whether you want the description to be imported or not. This is only the global value.
In this tab you can search for products via the API. Use a keyword for the search. The more accurate you define the keyword, the better the search result will be. You have the option to search in all available partner programs (shop) and categories, or to filter for exact these criteria.
After the search is finished, the import follows. You can either import the desired products via the Single-Import-Button (small “plus-character” on the right side) or via the mass import. The mass import works through the checking of the respective product and the button “Import selected products”.
In addition you have the Quick-Import (small bolt beside the “plus-character), which publishes your product-posts automatically and adopts all the information unchanged from affilinet. The information can still be edited of course, as well as with the other two import-options.
In the API log every events (import, updates, etc.) are recorded. This lets you track any particular event. The log only shows the last 200 entries. If it gets too confusing, you can delete the log manually.
Here you have the possibility to adjust the button-text of the “Buy-Button”, for all affilinet products. If you leave these fields empty, the general texts will be used by default.
For all affilinet products there is a specialty: Because products theoretically originate from different shops / partner programs, you can place the respective shop with place-holder. The input would look like this:
Buy at %s now
The output then would look like this, for example:
By at OTTO now
As title, the theme uses the title, which is deposited for the article in the shop (post-title). This title can be adjusted.
