Connect Omnivore to TheMarket via the Merchant ID

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.
