Contact La Poste to know if you are eligible to sell your products on their website.
To distribute your products on this marketplace, check that your products catalogue contains the data normally required.
Note: you don't have these values in your products catalogue? Contact the Lengow Support Team to find an alternative.
Sending your products catalogue à La Poste, you'll display your products on both websites:
- La Poste Particuliers
- La Poste Pro
Add a channel catalogue
Add La Poste channel in your Lengow account.
La Poste allows EAN Matching, i.e. if your products have already been created by the marketplace by another reseller, you don't need to send the "products" values usually required to create the product ad on this channel. Matching is done on the basis of the EAN code.
For these products:
- Categories Matching isn't required
- Regarding Attributes Matching, only some fields have to be filled in:
- ID Produit
- Product ID Type
- Prix Offre
- Quantité Offre
- Ecopart (if applicable)
- + fields related to promotion (if applicable)
Match your categories with La Poste's using "Categories Matching".
Complete Attributes Matching
Match your products catalogue fields with the fields requested by the channel, based on fields definitions. If necessary, enter hard values, use functions and/or adapt the values by creating rules. For fields with valid values, select the suggested value or match with your products catalogue values.
If a value is missing in the drop-down menu, please contact your La Poste account manager and ask for the creation of the concerned value.
Some fields are mandatory and must be completed for your products to be created or updated. Other fields are optional but La Poste recommends you fill them in to improve your products visibility.
To set up special offers/sales, fill in the following fields:
- price: strikethrough price of your product (original price). If your product is not discounted, this field must be filled in with your usual selling price.
- discount-price: discounted price of your product.
2. Delivery method and costs
Shipping costs and delivery methods are defined by La Poste. Contact La Poste to obtain the table of costs.
Select delivery methods in your La Poste back office.
Please note that each product is linked to a logistics category. The shipping costs are calculated on the basis of:
- the delivery method linked to the product
- the logistics category linked to the product
For the logistics category, you may choose between several options:
Keep the logistics category assigned by default by La Poste. In that case, no action needs to be taken by you in Lengow.
Change the logistics category assigned by default by La Poste. In that case, fill in the field "logistic_class" (contact your La Poste account manager to obtain the list of authorised values).
Note: Go to your Mirakl back office if you want to set up free shipping costs for all your products.
3. Variation values
All products attributes allow variations.
