Here is a handy checklist of set up related to consider while you're getting set up:

Apply to become a selected seller on TheMarket

  • Before you connect your Omnivore account to TheMarket, you will need to be approved to sell there.
    The following link will take you to their application form

Connect Omnivore to TheMarket via the Merchant ID

  • Omnivore needs a Merchant ID from TheMarket to enable connection. TheMarket will provide this to you when your TheMarket selling account is set up.

Choose which products to list

  • You will need to select a TheMarket category for each product you want to list on TheMarket. See Category Mapping for more instructions
  • If there are products you don't want to list on TheMarket, you can either Block them or simply not choose a TheMarket category for them to list on. You can block a single product or exclude products by brand or keyword.


  • If you want to change the price of products you can create a promotion to change the price of all products or a group of products.
  • TheMarket is a New Zealand Dollar based marketplace, If you're a seller based outside of New Zealand, you can also create custom exchange rates - go to 'Settings - Currencies' if you don't want to use the daily default rate which fluctuates.


  • You will need to set up shipping charges via TheMarket. 
  • There are two options, Standard and Bulky. All shipping defaults to Standard.

Stock Buffer

  • You can set up a stock buffer under 'Settings - Administration' if you carry low levels of stock and want to reduce the chance of overselling.


  • TheMarket does not give out the customers email address. If the customer email address is a required field in your ecommerce system, please go to 'Settings - TheMarket - General' and enter ${order_id}@<yourdomainname> in the field 'Default Order Email'. 

Start Selling

  • When you're ready to push products up to TheMarket, click the 'Start Selling' link in the Dashboard.
