Improved Import & Export Magento 2 Extension Features

magento 2 banggood integration

Now, when you are familiar with the Magento 2 Banggood integration, we’d like to draw your attention to the Improved Import & Export features that simplify the data synchronization between the two platforms. With our module, you can completely revamp the default import and export functionality of your store avoiding many drawbacks of the built-in tools. The most important thing is that you can automate everything.

The default Magento 2 import tools are limited in multiple terms. They cannot import all entities, automate transfers, or match attributes. Consequently, you have to repeat numerous processes every time an update is required. With our extension, all information can be transferred from Banggood to Magento 2 automatically, different external attributes and their values – matched to ones used internally, multiple file formats – leveraged in the integration, and all entities – imported/exported! As a result, you effortlessly synchronize Banggood and Magento 2.

Automated Import & Export

The Banggood Magento 2 integration is a continuous process that requires automation. Therefore, the Improved Import & Export extension provides the ability to avoid your daily duties related to data transfers by allowing you to automate data transfers in two different ways: via schedules and event-based triggers.

Schedules

Schedules are the most intuitive and straightforward way of automation. Data transfers between Magento 2 and Banggood or other systems run in the background. Being based on cron, they become an integral part of your e-commerce store.

Our module lets you create fully independent import and export jobs that synchronize the data flow between your e-commerce store and Banggood. You can leverage several options: custom intervals, customizable predefined update schemes, profiles with no schedules (which are good for maintaining such tasks as migration to Magento 2), and asynchronous data transfers (launch every scheduled profile manually whenever you want). The following gif image shows how to configure a schedule:

Events

Event-based triggers are the second huge improvement provided by the Improved Import & Export extension. Use the following algorithm to automate data transfers between Magento 2 and Banggood:

  1. Create a trigger;
  2. Connect it to an event;
  3. Link an action to a trigger to launch it automatically.

Thus, transferring data to Banggood or other external systems with the help of a trigger is also possible. For instance, a customer makes a purchase on your website. When a new order is created, the extension automatically transfers it to Banggood with the help of a trigger. The same functionality can be leveraged for import. Follow the link below for more details: How to Run Magento 2 Import or Export After Specific System Event or Process.

Advanced Mapping Features

Map Banggood attributes to ones used in Magento 2 to enable the migration and automate data transfers. If you don’t do that, you won’t import any data to Magento 2 since external attributes are not supported by the platform. What about the default tools?

If you use them, this procedure takes lots of time and effort since it is necessary to apply changes in a file editor repeating the same actions every time a new update is required. As for the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension, it radically simplifies the Banggood Magento 2 integration in terms of attributes and their values due to the following features:

Mapping Presets

Use our module to solve the problem of different attribute standards without headaches and enable the Magento 2 Banggood integration in the most intuitive way with mapping presetspredefined mapping schemes that eliminate manual attributes matching.

Our extension performs all the necessary stages automatically. It analyzes the input data file transferred from Banggood, discovers third-party attributes, and matches them to the ones used in Magento. You only need to select a matching scheme suitable for your migration. The process is shown below:

Matching Interface

Importing data from Banggood to Magento 2 can also be enabled by mapping external attributes to the corresponding internal ones. And you do everything right in the Magento admin! The Improved Import & Export module provides a unique matching interface which offers full control over mapping: you specify external attributes and link them to the corresponding internal ones in a special grid enabling the data transfer. Here is how everything works:

As for the “Default Value” column, it plays an important role in attributes matching when you transfer any data from Banggood. The column is designed for values, which are bound to all items of a corresponding attribute. For instance, it is possible to transfer product data from Banggood replacing its categories with ones used on your website. Type a hardcoded value containing a new store view in the “_store” attribute, and the Improved Import & Export extension will replace the third-party catalog elements with the chosen one.

Attribute Values Mapping

The Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension offers a separate interface for attribute values mapping that provides the ability to simplify the Magento 2 Banggood synchronization and automate it entirely. With our plugin, external designations will no longer interrupt transfers since you can choose an external value from Banggood and specify the internal one from Magento 2 as a replacement. Repeat the procedure until all third-party designations from your old store are mapped to ones utilized in Magento 2. Note that the created schemes are saved and applied for further updates. For details, read this article: Attribute Values Mapping.

Attribute Values Editing

If attribute values mapping is not enough, streamline attribute values editing while transferring data from Banggood or other systems to Magento 2 It is another feature provided by the Improved Import & Export module that makes the integration more merchant-friendly. To modify attribute values in bulk, use the following rules:

  • Add a prefix to multiple attribute values;
  • Add a suffix to multiple attribute values;
  • Split multiple attribute values;
  • Merge multiple attribute values.

Note that you can combine them and create conditions increasing the efficiency of the applied changes. Don’t miss the flexibility of our module! For further information, follow this link: How to Modify Attribute Values During Import and Export in Magento 2.

Category Mapping

Category mapping is a feature developed for product data transfers to Magento 2 which are a part of the Banggood Magento 2 integration. It lets merchants match external categories to ones used internally. As a result, you reduce the number of difficulties that may occur while products are transferred from Banggood to Magento 2. The Improved Import & Export module allows mapping external product categories to ones used in your catalog as follows:

To create new categories right in the import job, choose a parent category and specify a new one that will be generated automatically. Thus, the extension will link products to it during the import process. If your new Magento 2 store doesn’t include a category from your old Banggood website, it’s no longer a problem. You can find more information about this feature here: Category Mapping.

Attributes On The Fly

And if a Banggood data file lacks attributes, create them on the fly via the following general form:

Attribute|attribute_property_name:attribute_property_value|…

The feature is described here in more detail: Product attributes import.

Extended Connectivity Options

As for the extended connectivity options of our module, they are designed to improve all data transfers as well as simplify the Magento 2 Banggood integration. With Improved Import & Export, you can use multiple file formats and two alternative ways of transferring data between your e-commerce store and external systems. Also, note that our module transfers all Magento 2 entities, while the default tools support only a few of them.

Multiple File Standards

The Magento 2 Banggood integration on the basis of data files requires CSV support only; other systems work with a broader range of standards. Therefore, the Improved Import & Export extension supports XML, JSON, ODS, and Excel.

Another feature that radically simplifies data transfers between Magento 2 and other platforms is support for compressed data. Our module knows how to unpack file archives automatically while the default tools work with uncompressed CSV files only!

Multiple File Sources

The following file sources can be leveraged to import and export data files between Magento 2 and Banggood:

  • FTP/SFTP. Transfer data files using a local or remote server.
  • Dropbox. Use a Dropbox account to establish a connection between the two systems. Alternatively, you can rely on Box, OneDrive, Google Drive, iCloud, and Amazon Drive.
  • URL. A direct URL can be used to import a data file as well.

Use one of them to move your CSV files.

Alternative Ways of Import & Export

As for the alternative ways of import and export, they are not represented in Magento 2 by default. However, direct API connections and intermediary services enable multiple new integrations. As for connecting Magento 2 to Banggood, the Improved Import & Export extension provides the ability to leverage REST or SOAP APIs. Note that our module supports the GraphQL standard as well. All API connections are fully compatible with the extension’s features letting you streamline mapping, schedules, and attributes on the fly while transferring data via API. As a result, you can transfer all the necessary information between Magento 2 and Banggood avoiding data files!

As for the intermediary services, the extension allows leveraging Google Sheets, Office 365 Excel, and Zoho Sheet. Although they cannot be utilized in the Banggood Magento 2 integration, you can use them to connect to other systems. The following image shows how to use Google Sheets to move data to Magento 2:
