A tutorial to sync products from BigCommerce to Discogs.

Whether you are already selling on Discogs or you are looking forward to starting selling on Discogs our app can sync your products in either direction. Connect your E-Commerce store or Marketplace Account or POS system & sync starts within a few clicks of setup.

In this topic, we will have a look at the working procedure of two-way sync between Discogs & BigCommerce in the direction of BigCommerce to Discogs.

In order to sync products from BigCommerce to Discogs, there are some mandatory requirements that you will need.

On the Discogs Page:

1.Condition Mapping:

In order to sync your Products to Discogs, every product needs a media & a sleeve-based condition mapping.

  1. Set the status of newly synced Discogs products:

Discogs Products that are created using 2-way inventory sync can be synced either in For Sale status or Draft status. While most sellers sync it in “For Sale” status, there are other sellers who would like to use sync again from Discogs release data to other channels and not really sell on Discogs, they have the feasibility to sync it with “Draft Status”

  1. Auto Repricing (optional):

It happens most of the time that the same pricing strategy doesn’t work for all E-Commerce stores & Marketplaces. With our Auto-repricing feature, you can always have to tweak them a bit in order to make the best sales possible on BigCommerce. Reprice your products while syncing them from BigCommerce by a percentage or by a fixed amount by selecting the option you would like to use from the drop-down so you don’t have to update them manually.

  1. Set predefined dynamic comments for newly synced Discogs Products (optional):

You can customize your dynamic comments which will be synced to Discogs by the means of various shortcodes available to you. Shortcodes are data in BigCommerce fields that can be mapped into your Discog’s fields. Once you set your comments here with shortcodes, they will be imported from BigCommerce & mapped to Discogs.

On the BigCommerce Channel Settings:

  1. Release ID:

It is mandatory for all your listings on BigCommerce to have a Release ID. Without your Release ID, your products will not sync to Discogs. In BigCommerce, your Release ID can be present on the SKU field or on your MPN(Manufacturer Part Number), or on the BPN(Bin picking number) field.

  1. Categories:

We have added this feature because if you are selling multiple commodities on your site along with Music records it will help you to separate the products to be synced to Discogs out of other products

The products you would like to sync from BigCommerce should have a Category. Only products assigned to a certain category in BigCommerce can be selected to sync to Discogs. DisConnect searches for the Category or you give during setup to sync accordingly.

Once these mandatory requirements are in place, you can follow the below sequence of steps to get your sync started from BigCommerce to Discogs

  1. Turn on the import from the BigCommerce option.
  2. Select the field which holds your Release ID – whether it’s SKU, MPN or BPN on BigCommerce
  3. Select the identifier field on BigCommerce that you plan on using to sync products to Discogs. Be it Categories. You can add multiple categories separated by a comma.
  4. Enter the value of the identifier
  5. Click on the Update BigCommerce button in  the end once you’re done
