Field Mapping feature from Discogs to Squareup
DisConnect gives you an option to customize various fields dynamically on your Squareup POS for all your products. As a seller, you can now completely automate how your product data in your Discogs are mapped to your fields on your Squareup POS for all your products. DisConnect also allows you to customize products at an individual level, you can do so by going to the product details page.
In this tutorial, we will walk you through the various steps that you will have to follow in order to set up the field mapping. Also, Field Mapping is not mandatory to be customized to your liking, you can simply use our default mapping but if done, it comes with all the benefits listed above.
To customize the Squareup Field Mapping click on the Mappings on the left and go to Squareup POS Mapping.
How it works:
You will find various data fields of Discogs at the bottom of this section. These are dynamic shortcodes that can be used to map your Discogs data to your Squareup fields. You can map multiple Discogs Shortcodes (data fields) to a single field of your Squareup. You can copy these Discogs Shortcodes by clicking on them & paste them in their respective Squareup fields as per your requirement.
Please do note that in addition to the Shortcodes, you can also add texts to all the fields which will be mapped for every product. By default, our template has various Discogs fields & texts added.
1. Square up Name :
By default we’ve added.[Artist] – [Title] ([Format]) ([Media condition]) shortcodes but you can customize them as per your requirement.
The Stock Keeping Unit on Squareup. As it’s recommended to keep it unique, we’ve added [Listing ID] by default. You’re also free to use [Location], [Release ID], etc. Please make sure that the shortcode you use has unique values for them and not include any descriptive shortcodes like [Notes],[Comments],[TrackList], etc in shorter fields.
The Description field in Squareup can be customized as per your preference. In this field, you can include your long descriptive shortcodes like [Notes],[Comments], etc. Also, the video shortcode
can be included as part of the description. The video shortcode can be further customized to your preferences by altering the value of X in the shortcode show=X. Where X denotes the number of videos you’d like to show from the respective Discogs listing. The dimensions of the video can also be customized in the shortcode as long as the aspect ratio is maintained.
As mentioned earlier, the Discogs Squareup Field mapping affects your entire range of products that are going to be synced from Discogs to Squareup. Should you wish to change the mapping for a particular product, you’re free to do so on the product details page of a particular product in the “Products” section on the left panel.
Once you’re done setting up the field mapping, proceed with your other settings like category mapping & any other customizations you might need before starting the sync from Discogs to Squareup.
