idealo is Germany's leading price comparison platform for retail customers. More than 190 million offers from about 35,000 online shops are being compared from up to 12 million customers daily. Shop owners can use idealo as an additional sales channel and increase their turnover. Shop owners can profit from idealo's online concept, which gives them a competitive advantage. The idealo Checkout (Direktkauf) plugin is useful for all Magento shop owners who list their products on the idealo Checkout platform.

With the plugin, you can automatically import new orders from the idealo Checkout platform to your Magento shop. In addition, orders processed in Magento (status changes) will be synchronised back by the Magento cronjob. During synchronisation payment types and delivery options will be mapped according to your plugin configuration. There’s an optional mode that you can use for testing. The plugin also features support for multi-stores, logging and e-mail notifications on errors.

Besides installing the plugin it is also necessary to register for idealo Checkout. After having registered you will receive a security token which you can retrieve the idealo Checkout orders with. Shop owners will only be charged if a product is sold. The customer will pay directly to the shop owner's PayPal or credit card account. The invoicing is carried out on a monthly basis through idealo. Please find more information on idealo Checkout and the registration process in the idealo business portal.
