With this interface the partner programs of CJ Affiliate are available for you.
First you have to make certain settings in order to connect to CJ Affiliate.
Developer Key – new with 1.2
First of all you have to create an account on CJ Affiliate. Further you need an developer key, wich you can create on the api dashboard. Sign in into the api dashboard with your credentials (same as your cj.com login) and request your by clicking on “Authentication” > “Personal Access token“. Create a new one with a name like “ATIO” and the generated tokenin your WordPress Import settings into the “Developer Key” field.
Once you’ve logged into your dashboard, go to “accounts » websites” and add your website where you want to publish products. After that you’ll get an “ID” (next to your site name). This ID have to be filled into your WordPress Backend (Import » CJ Affiliate).
Company ID – new with 1.2
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 CJ Affiliate. 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 CJ Affiliate products. If you leave these fields empty, the general texts will be used by default.
For all CJ Affiliate 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.
