What is Vendor Live Connect™?

Live connect allows you to connect your live store to marketcube. This integration syncs inventory and order management automatically for operators and vendors in real time. Running a multivendor marketplace has never been simpler.

Vendor Live Connect™ enables your vendors to connect their existing online stores directly to your marketplace.

Once connected, products and orders sync automatically between their stores and your marketplace, eliminating the need for manual updates on yours or vendors' sides.

Vendor Live Connect™ Example

Let's say your vendor 'Farchioni' already has a Shopify store; they can connect their store to the operators marketplace from their own Marketcube's Vendor Portal. Then when a customer places an order in your (the operators) marketplace, this order will automatically sync directly to Farchioni's store. Likewise, when there are any changes to products in Farchioni's store,  i.e product goes out of stock or the price changes, these changes will sync to your (the operators) marketplace without Farchioni having to remember to update their products in their Vendor Portal on marketcube.

As a marketplace operator you can configure whether you want all the updates to sync automatically or you want to review them prior to them taking place (i.e you might want to keep stock updates automated but review price updates). 

Thanks to Vendor Live Connect™ you can scale your marketplace seamlessly. It provides seamless and admin-free experience for your vendors and frictionless shopping experience for your customers since they won't be buying out-of-date or out-of-stock products.
