Via Shopify’s App Store, you can install the plugin and get your free trial including all features. But first, let us tell you about the highlights of our Shopify inventory management app:

Shopify makes multi channel distribution easy for its users. The shop system is designed for the use of various sales channels, especially with pre-integrated social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest. Additionally, Shopify allows you to seamlessly integrate individual products to an external website (i.e. a blog) with Buy Buttons.
And besides social media — why not sell your products via the world’s leading shopping portals? With the latter you can rapidly reach a multitude of people, even internationally. Because magnalister makes this possible, the plugin is one of the most important Shopify Apps and a must-have for Shopify beginners as well as established dealers who are looking for new ways to distribute their products.
Because all product management takes place within the Shopify backend, our plugin can be used together with a Shopify inventory management system. That’s how information about current Shopify inventory or marketplace orders can be submitted to an inventory management system that’s compatible with Shopify.
Our Plugin Features Will Simplify Your Shopify Inventory Management
Upload your products to all linked marketplaces directly from your Shopify backend. You can choose between uploading single selected products or uploading in bulk. Customize your products prior to submitting them, i.e. through different titles, their own article description or additional product images*. Submitting products to large marketplaces such as Amazon or eBay is even easier. Through automatic product matching, i.e. thanks to a unique identification number (GTIN, UPC, EAN, ISBN, MPN), your articles are matched with the marketplace and uploaded.
Match your Shopify and marketplace product prices. Submit product prices directly from your Shopify backend to linked marketplaces. Prices that are changed within your Shopify shop will automatically synchronize with the marketplaces, unless you want to sell the same product for a different price through various distribution channels. The Shopify inventory management plugin draws on Shopify customer groups and lets you increase product prices percentually or absolutely.
Automate order import between marketplaces and Shopify. Being able to manage orders centrally is essential for your shop and its connected distribution channels. The order import feature of our Shopify inventory management app submits all marketplace orders to the Shopify shop system including information about payment and shipping method that the marketplace customer chose. This makes it much easier for you as a merchant to fulfill orders.
Automatically synchronize your inventory throughout all channels. Let’s say a product is out of stock, either in your Shopify store or a marketplace. Thanks to our inventory feature, your Shopify inventory is synced to your marketplace inventory and both stay uptodate. Because inventory information is provided centrally within Shopify, you are able to use compatible Shopify inventory management systems**.
Synchronize order status changes with connected marketplaces. Obviously, your customers want to know about their order status when they are logged into their marketplace account. Thanks to our Shopify inventory management plugin, you can directly submit order status changes such as “sent” or “canceled” to all connected marketplaces. Quickly submitting order changes is a relevant ranking criteria for large marketplaces such as Amazon or eBay.
Match product variants and attributes with connected marketplaces. Already during product preparation you can synchronize article attributes with marketplace requirements. This means no more cumbersome post-editing of product details.
Learn from error reports and prepare your articles even better for marketplaces. Each marketplace has its own rules for submitting and presenting products. On top of that, these shopping platforms perform regular updates. Thanks to error reports within our Shopify inventory management app you can see exactly how you have to improve your product preparation to successfully publish your products to marketplaces.
Keep an overview of your inventory. Which products did you prepare to upload? Which articles are being evaluated by marketplaces? And which items have been published already? You can view all of this information within the inventory overview per connected marketplace. That’s how you keep an eye on all running processes.
Customize the magnalister plugin according to your needs. Our Shopify inventory management plugin lets you determine your own requirements to manage marketplaces. Whether you want to add specific information when uploading articles or individualize order import, hook points let you adjust effortlessly***. And if there’s a plugin update, your customization will stay the same because of an update-secure plugin folder.
