Connect Omnivore to Kogan via Seller ID and Token

Omnivore needs a Seller ID and Seller Token to connect to Kogan.

  • IF you do not have a seller account please apply for one here
  • Your Onboarding Manager at Kogan will provide you with your Seller ID and Seller Token when they create your Kogan selling account.
  • You can add this via the Set Up Wizard in Omnivore when you create the Kogan marketplace OR 
  • In Omnivore, go to 'Settings - Kogan - General' to add and click 'Update settings'

Choose which products to list


  • If you want to change the price of products you can create a promotion to increase or decrease the price of all products or a group of products.


  • In Omnivore, you need to set up a default shipping option. Go to 'Settings - Kogan - Shipping' to set up.
  • If you want more complicated shipping such as different shipping charges for different locations/regions, your Onboarding Manager at Kogan will assist you to set this up a custom Shipping Table. 
  • You can also create Product Groups in Omnivore so that different products can have different shipping charges. For example, you can create a product group based on Weight (e.g products over 3kg) and set a different shipping charge for those products.

Stock Buffer

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

Customer email address

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