Sales Channels allows you to connect and manage multiple commerce channels to your Zakeke account. Sales channels are the different platforms where you sell your customizable products, such as Shopify, WooCommerce, Etsy, ...
This feature allows you to share customizable products among several platforms and manage all your orders and stores from a single Zakeke account instead of creating a separate account for each platform.

How it works
When you connect Zakeke with your store, that is the master integration. Then, you can add other websites to the same account as new channels to sell your customizable products.
If you remove the master connection, all other connections got lost.
Also, all channels got billed on your master integration. Refer to the Pricing section for further details.
Creating and managing channels
Before you start
Sales Channels works with all e-commerce platforms supported by Zakeke.
Keep in mind that a store based on the following platforms:
- Salesforce Commerce Cloud
- API integrations
Can be used just as a master integration and not as an extra Sales Channel.
If one of the stores you wish to integrate is on the Shopify platform, that store must be the master integration because you won't be able to add a Shopify store as an extra channel if the main integration is not Shopify.
Sales Channels works only with the Product Customizer, not with the 3D Product Configurator.
- Products with variants can't be shared among multiple channels.
If you use our native integrations with the POD services, the PODs' catalogs will be available only for the first store that you integrate and won't be available for the extra sales channels.
Adding a new sales channel
Go to Sales channels > Add to connect an additional channel
- Click on the channel you wish to add and follow the instructions (you find the instructions here as well)
While you integrate the new store you'll be asked whether you want to install it as a new sales channel within your existing account or create a new account. Choose to install it as a sales channel.
If you decide you no longer want to use a channel, from the Sales channels page, click the Disconnect button next to it.
For each channel you add to your Zakeke account you will pay an extra monthly fee of 15 USD.
The extra Sales Channel will work with the same features and limitations you have on your main existing account.
For example, if your plan is Starter, and you add another Sales Channel, the 50 published products limit applies to both Sales channels combined. Same with other limitations like the Views.
The transaction fee will also be calculated on every Sales Channel.
Sharing a customizable product across different channels
Go to Customizable Products > click on the icon under the Actions menu and then select Add sales channel.
Select the Sales Channel.
Select the product on which you want to copy the same settings as the initial customizable product.
You can only share a product with no variants and that is not from one of the third-party integrated POD services.
