Connecting Magento 2 - Buyer

This guide is for Buyers connecting their Magento 2 store with Convictional. The Seller guide is here.
Convictional supports integrations with Magento version 2.4.4 and higher. Lower versions may not be able to integrate successfully.

Step One: Connect Platform

  1. Ensure that Magento2 was selected when your company was created. Check this by looking for "Connect your Magento 2 Store" in your Convictional account's Integration Settings.
  2. Provide the URL of your store during sign-up. The format is "https://subdomain.store.com".
  3. If you do not see this section, contact support.

Step Two: Store View

This step is optional. Feel free to skip this step if you use your "default" Magento2 store view.

Store views can be used to customize your Magento2 instance. Examples for using different store views:

  • Different languages (English, French, Spanish)
  • Different supply models (Dropship, Wholesale, Consignment)
  • Different product collections (Standard, Exclusive)

If you want to create a unique store view to use with your Convictional account:
