Connecting your Etsy account
Connecting your Etsy account is pretty simple:

Look for ‘Etsy’ and click on Connect:

You will be asked to sign into your Etsy account:
Click on Allow access:
You will be redirected to Shoplo Multichannel where the import of your products will start.
How does the data synchronization work?
After you connect your Etsy account to Shoplo Multichannel, there will be an automatic data update every 5 minutes. This means that every 5 minutes any changes on your orders, customers and stock will be reflected in Multichannel.
Please note, that from now on all changes on your products details and stock should be done from your Multichannel account. If you make a change on Esty, Multichannel will also overwrite it within minutes.
