Ecomdash Integration

These instructions guide you through:


1. Configuring listings and updates
2. Configuring order exports
3. Configuring tracking submission 


Prerequisites

 
1. Have your FTP credentials ready.


Request a preconfigured FTP Account from PFTech or, if you use your own FTP Account, ensure it includes the following directories: 



Sample PFTech FTP Account (for instructional purposes):

Server: ftp.pricefalls.com 
Username: sampleuser
Password: P@SS123
Port: 21  

 

2. Subscribe to the Pricefalls App in Ecomdash

 

 

3. Download your Datafeed.


Ecomdash does not provide a daily product listing file by default. This can be setup in the Inventory Export Integration Settings section of your Ecomdash account.



Use an FTP client to retrieve the file or in your browser, navigate to:

 ftp://Username:Password@ftp.pricefalls.com:21/Pricefalls_Feed.csv
 (Remember to use your FTP credentials here) 

 

  Example with Sample Account:     ftp://sampleuser:P@SS123@ftp.pricefalls.com:21/Pricefalls_Feed.csv


If the file does not download automatically, right click and select "Save As".  

4. Prepare Your Category Map. 


The integration between Ecomdash and PFTech requires a category map file containing two columns - your categories in Column A and PFTech categories in Column B. You can find our article on how to create a category map here. If you require assistance with this, it is recommended you contact ms@pricefalls.com  .
