First steps

All assistants for the initial setup

This folder lists all assistants that are necessary for the initial setup of your plentymarkets system. Once you have completed one of these assistants, it disappears from this folder and is moved into another one according to its topic. The following assistants are part of the first setup: Basics, Locations, Integrations, Email accounts, Sales prices and Shipping settings.

Basic setup

Email accounts

Set up your email account in plentymarkets and save the signature that should be displayed in your email templates.


Determine the accounting settings for the locations you are using. Carry out the settings for the small business owner regulation, the calculation of orders, and intra- and extra-Community EU deliveries.


Expand your system with plugins. You can integrate the plentyShop Ceres including payment providers and shipping service providers as well as establish interfaces to other shop systems.

Sales prices

Define conditions for item prices and special reduced prices. For example, do you want to sell items at a lower price in your online store than on Amazon? No problem! Here you can specify the conditions for individual marketplaces, customer classes, countries of delivery, etc. Once you’ve completed the assistant, you’ll need to activate your newly created sales prices for all of the relevant item variations. Then you’ll need to enter the price for each variation.
