Manage templates

To manage templates, go to Catalog → Advanced Product Feeds → Templates.

The extension includes more than 45 ready-to-use templates for all the most popular price comparison engines (Google Shopping, Amazon, eBay, Shopzilla, etc.).

Note

Before you can create a new template, you need to check the product feed specification for the specified marketplace (template format type, fields delimiter, required fields, etc.).

You can create templates for any comparison shopping engine.

To create a new template, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Catalog → Advanced Product Feeds → Templates, then click the Add Template button in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Fill in the following fields:
    • Name - the name of the new template.
    • File Type - the feed output format. There are 3 types that are available for the data feed:
      • CSV - comma-separated values with each item placed on a new line. File extension is .csv.
      • TXT - same as a CSV file, but with a .txt extension.
      • XML - uses tags to define blocks of content. Information about your items is enclosed within these tags, which are indicated by angle brackets. The file extension is .xml.
    • At the Content Settings tab, you need to configure the template depending on particular requirements and the file type. Currently supported formats are:
      • CSV, TXT
      • XML
  3. Click the Save button.
