Linnworks uses the Mapping Tool to ensure that it knows which SKUs in its inventory are connected to which listings on X-Cart. As such, you should ensure that all of your listings are mapped correctly, or stock levels and prices will not update correctly, and orders may not be picked accurately.

1) In Linnworks.net, click Settings.

2) Select Channel Integration.

3) Locate the X-Cart entry, and click the Mapping button. This screen is divided into two sections.

On the left are the listings Linnworks is aware of on your X-Cart Channel. If this is not correct, or a change is missing, you should see the Download Listings button in the Listings section of the Channel Configuration. On the right is a Linnworks Inventory Search Tool. Each has its own Search box.

In the bottom left hand corner of the window is a status section. It shows the Total number of listings on the channel, and then beside it the Unlinked and Linked numbers – Linked listings are connected to a Linnworks Inventory item to allow updates and recognition, Unlinked are not. Ideally there should be no unlinked listings.


Linking Items Automatically

If the SKUs in your inventory match the SKUs used on the listings, Linnworks can link them all for you.

1) Click the Settings button (in the top left hand corner with a cog/gear on it).

2) Select Link All By.

3) Select SKU.

4) Linnworks will map all those listings that have a SKU which matches a SKU in the Linnworks Inventory.

5) Check the Linked and Unlinked values once this is complete.


Linking Items Manually

If the SKUs in your inventory do not match the SKUs used on the listings, you can make the link manually.

1) Use the left hand list and Search to find the listing to be linked.

2) Click on it to highlight and select it.

3) In the right hand list, use the Search box to find the correct Linnworks Inventory item to link it to.

4) Click the Link button beside it with the listing highlighted.

5) Repeat for other listings to be linked manually.


Creating Linnworks Inventory items and Mapping

If there are no SKUs in your inventory match to the SKUs on the listings, you can ask Linnworks to create basic Inventory items for you, and link them.

1) Use the left hand list and Search to find the listing to be linked.

2) Click on Create.

3) A new item will be created in the Linnworks inventory using the Name, Price and Stock Level, as well as the SKU from the listing. This will be linked to the SKU.

4) This can be updated with other information later in the Inventory.

5) Repeat this for other Listings that have no Linnworks inventory equivalent.


Price Change Functionality
Price Change only works for listings that are correctly linked to a Linnworks Inventory item in the Mapping Tool.

2) Select Inventory.

3) Select My Inventory.
