After importing brands data from Keystone, you should now have a list of available brands on the Data Import page for Keystone integration in your X-Cart store's Admin area (Catalog > Keystone, Data Import tab).

Before you proceed to import catalog data from Keystone, you will need to configure your import preferences for each of those brands.

If you no longer wish to import catalog data for a certain brand that has been imported into your store previously, you should remove this brand.

  1. In the brands list, locate the brand for which you would like to adjust your import preferences and click the Settings button (gear icon) opposite the brand name. For example, to adjust the import preferences for the brand "100+/COYOTE", we will need to use this button:

    As a result, a page with the brand details and import settings opens.

  2. Check the brand's import settings and, if necessary, make the changes you require. For information on the settings that can be adjusted, see the section Settings below.

Settings

For each brand imported from Keystone, you can access the brand details and import settings on a page accessible by clicking the Settings button (gear icon) opposite the name of the brand on the brands list.

At the top of the page, you can see information on the brand status.

The brand will have one of the following statuses:

  • This Brand is active.

    (Your X-Cart store has received confirmation that the brand is on the list of active brands for your account)

  • This Brand is inactive.

    (Your X-Cart store has received information that the brand is not on the list of active brands for your account)

The fields in the Import settings section can be used to specify your import preferences for the brand.

  • Product SKU includes: A product SKU is formed using a Manufacturer Part Number and a Prefix/Suffix. Use this setting to specify whether products of this brand should acquire a prefix/suffix appended to their SKU during import. The prefix/ suffix part can be either the brand's AAIA Brand ID or a custom (user-defined) value. The following options are supported for Keystone:

    • Prefix, AAIA Brand ID;

    • Prefix, Assigned by Catalog Provider (default);

    • Prefix, Custom (user-defined);

    • Suffix, AAIA Brand ID;

    • Suffix, Custom (user-defined);

    • No Prefix/Suffix.

    If an option including a custom (user-defined) prefix or suffix is selected, an additional field is provided so you can enter the custom prefix/suffix.

    A Custom SKU prefix/suffix can be up to 5 alphanumeric characters long.

  • Use SKU delimiter: Specify whether you want to use a hyphen as a delimiter between the prefix/suffix and MPN in the SKU.

  • Price to import: Configure price import rules for Keystone integration.

    Within the "Price to import" section, you see the price types that can be imported from Keystone. The following options are available:

    • Jobber;

    • Cost.

    You can set a price adjustment for prices that will be imported from Keystone. A positive value represents a markup, increasing the price, while a negative value indicates a discount, reducing the price. For instance, setting the price adjustment value to "-20.00" applies a 20% discount.

  • Update price: Use this to set your price import preferences for the brand.

    Note: It is possible to set an import schedule for multiple brands at once from the page with your list of available Keystone brands. See Configuring the Import Schedule for Keystone.
