Etsy Opencart Integration at CedCommerce involves the integration of the Opencart store with the Etsy marketplace.
The Etsy Opencart Integration extension helps the store owner to synchronize the product listing between your Opencart store and the Etsy retailers. The Opencart store owner can also manage the Etsy orders on the Opencart stores without making any significant changes in the operational functionalities.
The Opencart Store owner has an ability to synchronize the orders, products, pricing, and inventory through establishing the interaction between the Etsy API and the Opencart store. One of the most important features is that it enables the merchant to create the Etsy Categories and its dependent attributes on the Opencart store. Thus, it helps to configure the desired product category to the Opencart store for automatic submission of the selected product to the same category on Etsy marketplace.
