Custom Channels

Custom Channels enable you to create a data feed with your own specifications. You get to name the channel and the fields. Merchants use Custom channels for several reasons, like:

  • Create a feed for a channel that is not supported by DFW
  • Send a feed to a partner site
  • Upload products to your own store: You can to optimize the (e.g.) CSV-file first or make sure it meets the field requirements of your shopping cart


Where are Custom Channels?

In your DateFeedWatch Account click ‘Add channel’ icon. Choose a country and from a dropdown menu select ‘Custom channel’.
