The product listings processing is a part of the Product Flow on the CloudBlue Connect platform. Namely, Vendors define their product and submit a listing request to Distributors. Therefore, Vendors submit a request to publish product on a specified marketplace. Distributors deploy specified product to their marketplace by accepting this request and once done, mark provided listing as completed on Connect. The system also helps Distributors keep track of listed products and completed requests.
The following instructions describe how Distributors can access a provided listing request and how to process the listing on the Connect platform. Note that in case of an error, Distributors can also cancel the request and ask Vendors to submit another listing request.
Make sure that the following prerequisites are met:
Follow the steps below to find and successfully process a submitted product listing request on the Connect platform.
Navigate to the Listings module and proceed to the Requests tab to access your required listing request.
