ManoMano – How it came to be

Do it yourself” or DIY, in short, is currently one of the most trending topics worldwide. By 2021, it has become a billion-dollar market partly because people are staying home since the start of the pandemic.

Step One: Creating a Profile

If you want to list your products on ManoMano via Magento 2, you must create a profile first. Where you will keep an inventory of all your similar products. This profile will serve as your folder for a set of products. It will be much easier to find the products you want to list from your profile.

  1. To create your profile, click on ManoMano integration on Magento 2. Then click on Manage Profile.

All the products must have some required attribute data that needs to be filled in.

  1. Go to ManoMano Integration > Manage Products

If your products are listed successfully, your product status will show Uploaded.

There might be some INVALID products on your profile. For example-

A product becomes invalid because of one or many errors in the attribute data in the backend. To know what is causing this error, click on INVALID

In this case, the attributes mentioned in the picture above are empty. To fix the errors, click on the SKU link, which will take you to the back end of this product. Then find the required attributes and provide valid information.

You cannot list invalid products. Your products need to be validated first if you want to list them. After fixing all the issues, go back to the product listing page. Select the invalid products, click on the Actions drop-down bar, then select Validate Products.

Then this page will appear, and it will take a few seconds to work. Then the products you have selected will be validated. After that, the products will be listable.

If you try to list invalid products (which will eventually fail and show you errors), this will happen:
