Zalando: Creating your tasks

In this article, we will show you how to create your tasks for a ZALANDO release, using both CLI and GUI versions. Make sure to read the whole guide carefully and to also check our other ZALANDO articles. Good luck cooking! 🤞

Important warning

Zalando is a 1 window store, meaning you can only run it on the first opened GaneshBot window.

This is what you should see (or similar) when opening your tasks file. Let's get started on each field you will need to successfully run a ZALANDO release!

STORE

To run Zalando tasks, input ZALANDO in the "STORE" field. The region will be determined by the country code in the "COUNTRY" field.

MODE

GaneshBot offers different modes to use while running for ZALANDO, which are different ways of how the bot handles the checkout. We currently support:

  • STANDARD: input STANDARD in the "MODE" field, or leave it blank.
  • ALL: input ALL in the "MODE" field.
    • This mode preloads all sizes for the given URL and then wait for item to come in stock. This will checkout the first size that comes into stock out of every size available for that product
  • LOOP: input LOOP in the "MODE" field.
    • If using this mode, the bot will cart again after a successful or failed checkout and will keep carting and checking out on same account (PayPal can not be looped).
    • This mode can be used with ALL or STANDARD, such as STANDARD,LOOP or ALL,LOOP.
PRODUCT

In the "PRODUCT" field, you need to enter the PRODUCT URL or SKU.

It will be posted in #eu-release-guides before any major drop IF WE HAVE IT. Feel free to ask in your cookgroup as well. Example: https://www.zalando.de/jordan-air-jordan-1-sneaker-high-joc11a00n-g11.html

You can run multiple products in one task by adding a + between each product URL (or between each SKU if you're running SKUs. Do not mix SKUs and URLs). Example: https://www.zalando.de/jordan-air-jordan-1-sneaker-high-joc11a00n-g11.html+https://www.zalando.de/jordan-air-jordan-1-sneaker-high-joc11a00n-g11.html+https://www.zalando.de/jordan-air-jordan-1-sneaker-high-joc11a00n-g11.html

Additional Fields (Optional)

When running the INVOICE payment method on SE, FI, DK and NO region, you will need to input your social security number. To do that, create a SOCIAL column and input your SSN in it.

You can also input your gift card in this field. If you already have a balance on that account, you can input BALANCE in the DISCOUNT CODE column. Please note that your gift card / your balance must cover the whole price of your cart.
