Listing management

Handling certificates and packaging images in listings
Valigara allows certificate images and packaging images to be handled separately from the product pictures. This makes advanced operations with product images (such as shuffle, rotation, copying) easier and avoids misplacing the product images with certificates and boxing images. The system allows making the certificate / box images to be posted to the external marketplaces, together with the product images. For each type of images it is possible to define the precise position, where it will be placed. F.i. if you want the certificate image to be put 4th in row, and the box image 5th in row, this is possible. These settings can be set globally for all marketplaces and for each account separately. F.i. , the box image can be set 4th on Etsy account and 5th on eBay, according to the marketplace best practices.
How Posting Templates work?
When posting items to the marketplaces, there are several most common cases, covering 90% of posts. Posting templates allow saving posting settings for further use. After setting all preferences in Post or Mass Post page, name and save the current selection. On the next posts you will be able to quickly restore the settings from the saved format(s) and avoid entering everything again.
Linking social networks to online stores
Link sources allows you define, where you want to lead your social community. When posting your items to social networks, they will be linked to the desired online store (channel) - eBay, Amazon, Etsy etc.  Selecting several channels allows you to set the priority what channel is preferred. If the item does not appear on the first channel selected, it will try finding the product on the second one and link the post to the product page on the second channel,  etc. If no channel is selected (All Available) , the random channel will be selected.
What is Relisting Tolerance?
Listing time is crucial for better products' visibility on the marketplaces. For example, posting your jewelry on eBay.com at 18:00 US time can be more effective than 10:00 US time. Due to limitations of marketplace interfaces, products re-list might take several minutes. For example, the first post of the product was set at 20:00, the next one will be completed at 20:05, next one at 20:15, 20:35 etc. With time, after relisting product several times, products' listing time might move by hours. To avoid this situation, Valigara can automatically correct the time of items' relisting according to the initial post time. This will be done by moving the posting to the next day, or to the next available desired Day of Week (DOW). Use Settings -> Global Settings to handle how Valigara will handle the re-listing tolerance
How does the Posting tolerance work?

In some cases jewelry can't be posted to the external marketplaces as eBay, Amazon or Etsy exactly at the scheduled time. Valigara will keep trying until it succeeds. Posting tolerance defines the precision in time, how  your items should be posted. The system calculates the difference between the planned time and the current time and stops once the difference is larger than the defined posting tolerance. 

For example:

Scheduled posting time to eBay: 18:30

Posting tolerance: 60 minutes

Valigara will retry posting your jewelry till 19:30, and stop pushing your jewelry to eBay at 19:31
