Publish to TikTok Shop

Shop

You can select in which of your TikTok shops you wish to list your products published via Nembol.

Warehouse

You can select in which of your TikTok warehouses you wish to tag the stock of products you publish via Nembol. 

When you list from Nembol to TikTok Shop, you must select a warehouse to which the system will assign products listed subsequently. Look for the Warehouse field in TikTok Shop settings in Nembol. You can change this warehouse for subsequent bulks of products.

When you import products from TikTok Shop to Nembol, in case variations of the same product are allocated in different warehouses, only the warehouse associated with the first imported variation will be considered when importing to Nembol. Note: this situation could create complications during future edits of the product.

Nembol does not manage products with different variations assigned to different warehouses.

Additional note about Nembol and TikTok Shop

  • Listings will be assigned to a TikTok Shop category in an automatic fashion, based on the keywords you provide in the Category field of each product in Nembol. If you type in the Category field the exact name of a category, the listing will be published on TikTok Shop under that exact category. If you type nothing in the category field, the listing will be categorized based on keywords found in the title. Therefore, if you want to modify the assigned category,  you should add or edit keywords in the Category field.

  • Limited to products with variations, syncing inventory across TikTok via Nembol, from any channel, works only if each variation has a unique SKU code.

  • While listing to TikTok, you should hence make sure that SKU codes are present in your products on Nembol before listing to TikTok, or otherwise you should add them soon after.

  • If you import from TikTok to Nembol a product with variations without SKU codes, Nembol will automatically generate an automatic SKU code per each variant.

  • The latter is a courtesy function, provided by Nembol. We advise that each sellers fixes their SKU codes autonomously before importing from TikTok to Nembol, possibly using factory-provides SKU codes. Read in our blog what is a SKU code and why it is important.

TikTok Shop requirements

Currently, it is necessary to include the product weight and dimensions to publish on TikTok Shop across most of the categories. In case you didn’t provide this information, your product will not be listed.
To verify if a field is required by TikTok Shop while listing with Nembol, open the product within your Seller Center and try editing it. Or otherwise create a new test listing inside TikTok Shop Seller Center.

Currently, ‘Jewelry’ is a restricted category on TikTok Shop. Restricted categories may change from time to time, and of course vary by channel. You may double check restricted categories, and their requirements, at any time, insideTikTok Shop Seller Academy.
