Don’t just think about Takealot as being a big scary competitor when you can rather look at them as being a sales channel for you to use to get your products in front of the millions of consumers which visit their site every month.

If you’re not yet selling on Takealot.com you’re probably asking yourself “how do I set up a Takealot Seller Account” or if you’ve already been on the seller portal for months you might be wondering “how do I grow my sales on Takealot”.

UPDATE: Now you can sync your inventory and pricing info to the Takalot Seller Portal!  

For all of you that are already selling on the Takealot Marketplace through their Seller Portal you’ll agree that the management of your pricing and inventory is a real headache. This is because there’s never been a way to sync the seller portal info with the inventory and pricing info of your company’s accounting system or ERP… Until now!  

Our friends at Stock2Shop in Cape Town have come to our rescue by building a connector software which can now automatically update your pricing and inventory quantities as those numbers change within your company accounting or ERP system. This means that you no longer need to rush over to the Takealot Seller Portal each time you run out of stock of an item or if there’s a price change. 

You’ll still need to create your products on the Takealot Marketplace (or add someone else’s listing to your inventory) and then the Stock2Shop connector will take care of the rest by:

>> Updating your offer price per product  

>> Updating your RRP (recommended retail price) 

>> Pushing stock lead times from your ERP to the Seller Portal 

>> Setting the available quantity which you make available for sale 

 At this point they have developed the connector integration to work with the following systems: 

Sage Accounting, Sage Pastel Partner, Sage Evolution, Sage Financials, SAP, iSync, SYSPRO & Omni Accounts.  

If you operate on another system (Xero, Shopify, WordPress, etc)  and would like an integration built then let us know in the comments below. Once we get enough website owners asking for a particular integration then Stock2Shop will consider creating it.
