WooCommerce Listing & Inventory Management Plugin: Sell from WordPress on Amazon, eBay, Etsy and Co. and Automate Processes
Connect the world’s most popular shop system with the largest national and international online marketplaces and reach millions of new buyers? With the magnalister WooCommerce Listing & Inventory Management Plugin this is easy and can be done at fair conditions. Thanks to the core features of the magnalister WooCommerce integration, sellers benefit from significantly more efficient e-commerce processes and a central administration of marketplace orders in WordPress.
In addition to the product upload from WordPress, the scope of services also includes matching of product variations and attributes between shop and marketplaces, price and stock synchronisation, automatic order import and order status matching (e.g. “shipped” incl. tracking code), invoice upload to Amazon and the possibility of plugin customization via so called hook points.
Magnalister is suitable for WooCommerce shop operators of any size and is an ideal tool for e-commerce beginners to quickly list products on marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, Etsy, real.de (now: Kaufland), METRO, idealo and many more without any programming skills.

WooCommerce and magnalister: The most efficient team for multi-channel sales via online marketplaces
From e-commerce beginner to successful marketplace seller on the fast lane: This is exactly what WordPress makes possible when you enhance it with the WooCommerce erp plugin and the powerful magnalister interface. Due to the fact that WordPress makes it incredibly easy to create your own presence on the Internet, millions of people rely on the free content management system.
Even though WordPress as an open source software was not developed explicitly for the e-commerce sector, with WooCommerce, users have a powerful plugin that enables them to turn their WordPress website into an online shop. In its basic version, WooCommerce is also free of charge, which means that future online sellers can plan with the lowest investment costs for setting up their shop.
From a cost perspective, it also makes sense to connect a newly setup WooCommerce shop to the largest national and international online marketplaces and to exploit their target group potential. After all, those who offer their products from WooCommerce, e.g. on Amazon or eBay, can use the reach – i.e. millions of existing marketplace customers – for themselves and their product sales.
The alternative? A promotion of the WooCommerce shop through marketing investments. The problem: marketing your own shop is not only time-consuming and takes a lot of work, but above all costs a lot of money. Among other areas, investments must be made in search engine optimisation (SEO), search engine marketing (SEA), banner advertising (e.g. Google Ads) and social media marketing (e.g. Facebook ads). Thus, self-marketing presents many e-commerce beginners with major hurdles. The connection via the WooCommerce Listing & Inventory Management Plugin is therefore the easiest and fastest way to expand your online business and make it successful.
The core features of the magnalister WooCommerce integration at a glance
Marketplace merchants that are already active know the problem: Most of the time, a multitude of shopping portals are available for selling their products – but each sales interface, e.g. the Amazon Seller Central or the eBay Seller Hub, is a world of its own. Without a web shop interface, products have to be uploaded separately to each marketplace and orders have to be managed manually.
The solution is to configure the WooCommerce web shop as the central management platform for marketplace sales. Since WooCommerce itself does not offer the possibility to connect to external online marketplaces, merchants are dependent on the use of a WooCommerce Listing & Inventory Management Plugin. Magnalister is one of the world’s leading interface solutions and is available as a downloadable WordPress plugin free of charge. Our plugin is characterized by the following core features:
Product upload: Upload products directly from WooCommerce to Amazon, eBay and many other marketplaces
- Upload individual products or whole categories
- Product customization before transmission (e.g. title, description, images)
- Clear presentation of the products prepared for marketplace upload in the “Upload” tab
Attribute matching: Match product variations and features with those of marketplaces (e.g. “size” and “color”)*
- Define product variations and features in WooCommerce and match them with the specifications of the marketplaces
- Automatic matching for the most popular marketplaces like Amazon
- In addition: Manual assignment of product variations and attributes
Price matching: Submit prices automatically or individually from WooCommerce to marketplaces
- Automatic synchronization of current product prices from WooCommerce to Amazon, eBay and Co.

Synchronize inventory: Always up-to-date stock levels between WooCommerce product stock and online marketplaces

- With every marketplace order the stock in the WooCommerce Shop is automatically reduced by 1
- Data basis is the database from the shop system, so that merchandise management systems connected to WooCommerce can also be synchronized

Interface customization: Customize the magnalister plugin according to your own preferences via hook-points
- For example, individualized product descriptions or custom fields in the order information when importing orders
- Note: Programming skills are required to use hook points
