NEW: Free Magento 2 and Prestashop Connectors and a Great IcePIM to Feed them All
Iceshop, the e-commerce daughter of Icecat, made a free Magento 2/Icecat Live connector available in addition to a host of other commercial Magento connectors for this most popular webshop environment. The Icecat Live integration is based on Icecat’s Java Script real-time inserts. Next to this free add-on, a number of enterprise Magento and PrestaShop add-ons are available, for example in combination with Icepim.
Icecat Connect for Magento 2
If you are in need of having the Icecat product content inserted in your Magento 1 or Magento 2 environment, then Icecat Connect is a handy commercial upgrade for just €995 setup and €600/year for this plugin. Try to imagine the time you save by not having to enter product data manually!
More impressive, a hidden gem in the IT & Electronics vertical, is another Magento add-on, Iceimport, that helps your shop to connect to hundreds of your distributors/suppliers. Not only the big distributors like Ingram Micro and Tech Data, but also local and specialized ones provide standard connections via Iceimport.
Prestashop Icecat add-on Live
The second most popular ecom platform after Magento is Prestashop. For the same cost as the Magento add-on, Iceshop made a well-tested Prestashop add-on available. A Dutch demo with Icecat content is available.
Unified multi-source feed via Icepim to any ecom environment
Another gem is Icepim, Iceshop’s product information manager, that can combine the content of multiple sources into one single feed. Icepim is a cloud-based product manager helping with the mapping of multiple taxonomies, and the combination of rich content and price feeds, into one database. In combination with Iceimport 100s of supplier feeds can be integrated. And in combination with Icecat or other rich content sources, a full coverage with product data-sheets can be realized. Connectors to mainstream ERPs, such as SAP and Exact are available, in addition to mainstream ecommerce platforms like Magento (Enterprise), Prestashop, Batavi and tailor-made ones.
An incomplete impression of the list of connected suppliers via Iceimport
If you don’t work with Magento, Icecat has many more connectors.
