FAQ

Does Codisto LINQ work with all Amazon & eBay sites?

Yes, it does.

What are the requirements to run Codisto LINQ?

Codisto LINQ requires a recent version of WordPress (4.2+) with WooCommerce (2.2+) installed. Your server should run on Linux and have PHP 5.3.

Does Codisto LINQ just list my products on Amazon/eBay or provide full catalog synchronization?

Codisto LINQ is more than just a listing tool. It keeps your whole catalog – products, prices, images, descriptions, inventory levels and more in sync with Amazon/eBay in real time. Orders from Amazon/eBay are automatically sent to WooCommerce and inventory reduced in real time so you never oversell on either channel. Further, you can of course choose which products from your catalog to list.

How easy is Codisto LINQ to setup and use?

Codisto LINQ was designed for merchants to increase their sales by adding the Amazon & eBay channels for virtually no effort and keep their current WooCommerce fulfilment processes.
This has been achieved by applying the maximum automation to setting up and managing Amazon/eBay. There are many areas of automation from categorizing products on eBay, applying a professional template, upscaling images, UPC/EAN error prevention, automatic tax rate detection for orders and many more.
If you’re happy with our standard template, eBay best practice selling values e.g. 30 days returns and free shipping, once Codisto LINQ has installed, you can list your entire catalog in just 4 clicks.
Amazon ASIN matches is fully automated if you have UPC data and there is a quick and easy search tool if you don’t have UPC data. There is no better performing solution that makes it as easy to list on Amazon/eBay anywhere, let alone offer full, real time integration.

I already have listed my products on Amazon/eBay. Can Codisto LINQ import them to WooCommerce?

No, Codisto LINQ is designed to let WooCommerce be the “source of true” – you contine to manage your products in WordPress – and use Codisto LINQ to manage which products and how they are listed on Amazon/eBay.
But it is possible to map existing Amazon/eBay listings to products in WooCommerce once they are in WooCommerce with the ‘map products’ function.

Does Codisto LINQ support auction style listings?

No, Codisto LINQ is designed for merchants with catalogs who want to create fixed price, good til cancelled listings.

Yes, there are! Please check out our growing knowledgebase at http://help.codisto.com/

Firstly: This solves selling on Amazon and eBay with WP. Period. Based on other reviews, I think there is confusion about this extension so let me explain what I have found out: 1) Extension is free but service behind the extension requires a monthly fee. It is not a scam nor is it any different from other SaaS plugins - you download the extension but get charged when trying to use the service (after the free trial). 2) If you don't have your WP environment configured so that the extension can reach it (like I had) - of course "it won't work". As soon as you allow it access - it works perfectly. If I had believed some of the other reviews I would have missed out on the extension that has saved my life!

Another of these "wow, use this plugin for free!" scams. I downloaded it from the woocommerce-shop where it is advertised as free. But after installing and configuring everything, it says "yes, that's fine, now you can start your free trial." but you don't see any price information. Usually I would give this to a lawyer because this is a scam. Since this is normal behaviour by woocommerce, I'll just delete this and the whole shop. Thanks for making this decision easier for me.

Ok, edited the review from the annoyed one to factual. Ebay: listings kept running out of sync, every time products get updated in bulk in woo, codisto didn't pick up either price or stock or both. pictures didn't get updated on ebay, so I ended up having to manually check every single listing to make sure it's actually in sync and update main pictures manually. Amazon: after codisto messed up my catalog of products, I switched on the setting to only sync price and stock. That didn't have any major difference, as codisto kept trying to sync categories, shipping settings, and even changed my amazon variations to be the main products, so I had to completely stop all sync and contact amazon support to fix my listings again. Closing account via WordPress plugin wasn't working, but thanks to prompt support replies it is now closed. I did see codisto is working in "pull" mode rather than pushing the data out to the target systems. So all my data was synced to codisto servers on amazon cloud first, including orders and catalog, before being sync'ed to Ebay and Amazon. That's a little worrying, though i'm not sure to what extent the data exposed by codisto is secure on the website as I deactivated plugin as soon as I realised that.

Our customer has 30,000 SKUs, but they are low cost low profit items. In fact they are a social enterprise. The pricing model is based on SKUs, so the price for 30,000 items is way way too high for a customer like ours, as they wont make enough sales let along profit to pay for that. So the pricing model may be good for those with a high profit per SKU AND/OR high sales, but for those with a low profit and sales per SKU and therefore low overall sales, even though there are thousands of SKUs, then this is not suitable at all.
