Skubana offers out-of-the-box integration with various sales channels, e.g. Amazon, eBay, Magento, Newegg, Sears, Shopify and Rakuten.
For general instructions on adding a sales channel to Skubana, see Adding Sales Channels.
In this article, we detail the steps for adding your Rakuten store as a sales channel in Skubana.
To Add a Rakuten Store as a Sales Channel
1. Send an email with the subject line FTP Credentials Request to Rakuten's Marketplace Integration Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, mention that you are connecting to a third-party software and need to have a FTP user ID and password defined.
2. After receiving your FTP user ID and password, on the New Sales Channel popup, select Rakuten from among the channels listed.
3. On the Rakuten Integration page, enter your Rakuten FTP user ID and password, then click Verify Integration to test and confirm that Skubana’s connection with your Rakuten account is working.
Once integration is completed, you are redirected back to Skubana, where you will see Rakuten added to your sales channels.
NOTE: Skubana normally pushes inventory out every 15 minutes, However, in Rakuten's case, its API does not accept inventory feeds. You will have to update your Rakuten inventory manually.
