Product and Plan Management

Sync Products

Before you can sell Extend protection plans, you will first need to sync your products with Extend. This allows us to match your eligible products with protection plans, and later to provide you with details you will need to sell them.

 

Product Sync via CSV

Your Merchant Success Manager will provide you with the CSV file and format for you to complete. Extend will then use this file to upload and map your product catalog to corresponding protection plans for you. It is recommended that this method be used for the initial product catalog sync. For more information, please coordinate with your Merchant Success Manager.

 

Product Sync via Extend Module Admin

In order to sync plans directly from your instance, navigate to Stores > Configuration > Extend > Extend Protection Plans > Sync Products.

The product sync can be configured to occur in batches of 25, 50, and 100 products. The default configuration is 100. To products synchronization logs(create, update, add, errors) can be found at: var/log/extend/sync.log.

 

Product Sync via Command Line (Large Catalogs)

It is recommended to sync products via CLI whenever there are large catalogs. This command allows for creation of customized batches and defining the number of products. The batch is an optional parameter and the value must be from 1 to 100. Use the following command for the sync:

$ php bin/magento extend:sync:products --batch=100

Note: If the batch parameter is not set the default value is 100.

 

Extend Protection Plan Product

The Extend Module creates a product that is as a custom type ‘Warranty’. This type restricts access to merchants to modify the product. The product, ‘Extend Protection Plan’ will represent the purchase of the selected protection plan on each order.

Plan Mapping

Once your catalog is synced, Extend will work to map protection plans for your product catalog accordingly. It is important to note that offer presentation is dependent on the product mapping being complete. Please contact your Merchant Success Manager to verify product mappings in your environment before testing.
