#Step 3: Enable BigCommerce Etsy synchronization

You may notice there are three synchronizations for BigCommerce Etsy integration, which are Pricing, Inventory, and Order. They are other features in our plans for businesses. But how do they actually work?

Pricing synchronization

Briefly, the feature is responsible for pricing-related updates of your online merchants in both selling channels.

When switching on the Pricing Sync, you can now edit pricing on each channel individually. This means that your pricing on Etsy and BigCommerce does not necessarily resemble one another.

As businesses sell Etsy products on BigCommerce while in BigCommerce integration, it may get slightly different due to factors such as audience, remarkable categories, and many more. Hence, we advise that you adjust your pricing to the best fitting.

Inventory synchronization

In addition, LitCommerce provides you with effective inventory control on both marketplaces when doing BigCommerce Etsy integration. The function is fully devoted to updating product quantity statements in your central catalog. Any change will then get reported, preventing sellers from overselling and keeping them stay tuned.

Enabling inventory synchronization will help you to:

    • Adjust item amounts on Etsy and BigCommerce individually (similar to pricing)
    • Set up minimal and maximal amounts for each product

Note: You can only make adjustments and setups on BigCommerce and not vice versa.

Order synchronization

Lastly, pay attention to our Order Synchronization in Etsy integration for BigCommerce sellers. Specifically, it helps e-sellers manage all orders from both Etsy and BigCommerce from one BigCommerce central dashboard. As a result, inventory control and order fulfillment are now less complex and more time-saving.

When the Order Synchronization is on, the LitCommerce app will list all orders in one central board on BigCommerce. At this point, make changes if needed. Or else, go ahead and click Save.

Nevertheless, to use the Order synchronization, you must first switch on the Inventory Synchronization.

#Step 4: Make use of BigCommerce Etsy integrated order flow

Make use of BigCommerce Etsy Integration

The final step in BigCommerce Etsy integration is to make use of the order flow supported by LitCommerce. With the three functions featured in our plan, e-sellers are able to manage orders from the two channels in one central dashboard.

In detail, as you are in the BigCommerce central dashboard, you can choose either to review orders before conducting the fulfillment process or have them imported into your existing flow by LitCommerce. If it is the second case, LitCommerce will support you to:

    • Import and keep track of orders from one single dashboard
    • Stay tuned with real-time inventory updates from transferred orders
    • Constantly update tracking data and shipment information from all selling channels

With LitCommerce, multichannel integration is easier. Apart from BigCommerce Etsy integration, e-sellers can reach other selling channels such as Google shopping, Facebook, and Amazon. We also offer integration for Wix, Shopify, and WooCommerce.
