Nembol does not work with digital products

Unfortunately, at this time, Nembol does not work with Etsy’s digital products. If you are interested in using Nembol with this type of product, please let us know.

We will check and see how we can integrate better with this channel.

List and Sync features available with Etsy

Import products from Etsy

With Nembol, you can easily bulk-import your listings from Etsy into many different channels, such as: eBay, Amazon, Shopify, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, Facebook, TikTok Shop, Tumblr, Pinterest, Google Merchant Center, and Instagram. See our integrations.

Import specific items

In Etsy’s setting, under the “Import settings” section, you can choose to add filters to the import. Choose which items should be imported by Nembol:

  • Status: active, draft, expired, inactive.
  • Section: import only from a specific section in Nembol.

Don’t worry! You will be able to change your settings whenever you want.

Bulk-list products on Etsy

With Nembol you will be able to bulk-list your products on Etsy in just a few clicks.
The channels you can import your products from are:

In the “Publish settings” section, you can easily select how your listings will be exported from Nembol into Etsy. See how to use available functions here below.

Sync inventory across channels

Nembol is provided with a smart function that automatically syncs the available quantities across multiple channels.

Enable the Quantity sync towards Nembol, and every time you sell an item, Nembol will align the inventory across all your connected channels.

Bulk edit on Etsy

Mass-edit your listings using a CSV file, or use the quantity bulk edit function to push quantity updates to all your channels at the same time.

Edits made on a single product will be share across connected channels, too.

By default, Nembol will publish your multi-quantity products with a quantity maximum of 999, to match Etsy’s limits on inventory count. The products will be restocked as you sell them if you still have availability in Nembol. This will save you time when bulk publishing from other channels, like eBay or Shopify.

Link listings on different channels

Before your Nembol subscription, you may have already listed items on different channels. You can easily connect them with Nembol.

How to link products on different channels:

  • First, import your products from your preferred channel.
  • Then, import products from any additional channels. Nembol will automatically link all products that have matching SKU codes.
  • From now on, the products will be in sync.

List your products using a CSV file on Etsy

Nembol allows you to bulk-publish your products using a CSV file, also on Etsy.

If you are an Etsy seller, you probably already know that this channel doesn’t allow users to import products using a CSV file.

Nembol provides users with the opportunity to overcome this obstacle, allowing them to upload a CSV file on Nembol, and then bulk-list items to Etsy.

Transfer orders into Shopify

Shopify users may prefer to use it as a central hub to manage their listings.

Nembol, connected to a Shopify account, allows you to automatically sync any edit you have done in Shopify on Etsy and on other channels. In addition to this function, Nembol can transfer the orders you get in Etsy into your Shopify backend.
