Key Features of Magento Product Feeds
- Feed Templates
Create feeds according to pre-established templates for different shopping engines without programming knowledge. You can use 7 templates for Facebook, Amazon, Bing, Google, Nextag, and Shopping.com.
- Multi-Process Generation
Increase the feed generation speed by forcing the server to process several feeds in parallel. Doing this will add more server load but make feed generation faster. You can also specify how many processes can run parallel to balance speed and load. However, you must install the "pcntl" extension on the server to use this feature.
- Merge Attributes
When choosing attributes for the feed templates, you can select merged existing attributes. Usually, to do so, users need to create custom attributes. This extension allows merging data from attributes without creating new ones.
- Batch Size
Specify how many items will be processed during one regeneration of the feed. With this feature, you can avoid bloating your feed and speed up its generation if fewer products need to be handled.
- Ready-to-use Templates
Use more than 50 pre-built templates to create feeds for various shopping engines. The extension has default templates for Facebook, Instagram, Shopzilla, eBay, and many more. Other extensions often have fewer templates or even rely only on custom ones.
- Dynamic Variables
Experienced users can create new custom variables with PHP code to use in templates. Unlike dynamic attributes, dynamic variables are more flexible. This feature allows you to fine-tune your feeds for specific needs, adding lines like Global Trade Item Number or displaying current stock from any store view.
- Feed Reports
Track the effectiveness of all your feeds using pre-built reports. You can see general statistics for all the feeds or the performance of individual ones. Reports can display clicks, orders, sold SKUs, revenue per click, and other helpful information. Data can also be shown in charts like pie charts or histograms.

Import or export templates, filters, dynamic attributes, categories, and variables. With this ability, you can create backups to manually save data or transport settings of said entities from shop to shop.
