What is a Trading Rule?

A trading rule as the name suggests is a set of rules to place your models on the marketplace (eBay, Amazon, Yandex.Market, and VK) from Trimpo. When you are listing your models to a marketplace, you need to specify a rule according to which your models will be placed in the marketplace. It is mandatory to have one Trading rule in your Trimpo account. You can also have more than one trading rule depending on your requirements (for example: If you have global as well as local customers then you can set one trading rule for international customers and one trading rule for local customers.) Once you configure trading rule successfully, you can proceed to add models to the desired marketplace from Trimpo using the default trading rule. You will not be able to add models to the marketplace from Trimpo if your Trading rule has errors.

 

In Trimpo, features of trading rule vary with different marketplaces, like eBay has a different set of trading rules than Amazon. But, there are few features which remain same for all the marketplaces. We will look at those common features.

How to add a template to your trading rule?

Template: Properties is the first feature of the Trading rule of all marketplaces where you need to choose a name for your trading rule and you have to set the Template. A template is nothing but the HTML code to be added at the end of item description which will be listed using this rule.

What is Price & Stock?

Price and Stock: Price management can help you define that extra charge or discount on the price of the model. Toggle between + and – to switch between extra charge and discount. You can also choose the unit as currency or percentage for better price management.
Stock management will help you to define your stock limitations. You can set the maximum limit for your model stock and this will make sure stock of the models uploaded to the marketplace will remain under the set value. You will not have to worry about running out of stock on the marketplaces.

What is Auto Placing?

Auto placing: If you have been adding models to marketplaces manually then Auto placing will surely ease your workload. You can place your models on the marketplaces automatically once you enable this feature in the trading rule. Choose a corresponding category for your models and you are all set for auto placing. All the new models in your source will be automatically placed on the marketplace into chosen category. You can always disable auto placing if you do not wish to use this feature and continue adding models manually.
