How to Add a New Shop in DataFeedWatch [5-Step GUIDE]

  • Quick read
Our team is always working its magic behind the scenes to continuously improve the app. In this article, we would like to show you step-by-step how to add new shops to your DataFeedWatch account. We made sure to make this process as quick, easy and simple as possible for you.

Let’s see how it works!

We'll take a closer look at the Input Field, Updates Schedule, and Internal Fields steps.

Creating a new shop

Let’s go through the whole process together.

Input Feed 

Step 1: Choose a name for your shop.

It can be anything you’d like. Once you type in a name, the main feed input options will appear. 

Selling apparel? Tick the box which will help your feed set up later. 

Main Feed setup

Step 2: Where is your main feed stored?

This is where you’ll choose the input source of your product data feed. If you’re uploading it from a shopping cart, just choose the corresponding icon. 

If your product data is stored in a document instead, you can also simply upload a file. The following are supported file types: .CSV/.TXT, Google Sheets, JSON, or .XML. 

Merging more than one file

If you’ve created a new shop with us before, but had your data stored in more than one file, you know that it was possible to merge but that it required an extra step involving our Support team. Now it’s possible for you to merge more than one document on your own, right where you’re creating your new shop.

You’re also able to merge more than one type of file. The only exception is JSON which can only be merged with another JSON file (for now).

Choose the icon for the type of file you’re using and either browse the file or paste the URL. Then click on + Add Another Feed and follow the same process.

After setting up your new shop, you’ll be able to access the Merge File settings for further set up.

Daily update scheduling 

It’s recommended to schedule at least one update every day. That way you can assure that your feeds are always fresh and the most recent information is displayed in your ads.

Step 3: Select your desired time zone, and then choose the times you would like your products to be updated.


Scheduling daily uploads | DataFeedWatch

Click on + Add Another Update and pick the time either by clicking on the numbers or typing them in. 

Depending on your plan, you’ll have a certain amount of free daily downloads. Let’s break it down by tier. 

Shop: 1 free daily update, without the possibility of increasing. If you’d like to add more, our Support team will be more than happy to chat about what plan would work best for you. 

Merchant: 2 free updates per shop

Agency/Enterprise: 5 free updates per shop

You'll see below that we've chosen more than the available 5 free downloads. In that case, the additional cost will be placed above each download.

Extra update costs are determined by how many products are in your shop. You can hover over the question mark icon to see the thresholds and estimation based on the updates you've chosen is provided at the bottom. It's always possible to make edits to these later in your shop settings. 

Keep in mind, there’s a total limit of 24 uploads for every shop.

Final steps

Optional step 4: Merge settings

You can skip this step if you used only one source for your data feeds. 

Now that all your products have finished downloading, you can go into your Merge Feed settings. To make sure they’re merged successfully, choose common attributes that are repeating in your feeds so that the data isn’t used more than once.

Step 5: Map your internal fields

We’ve come to the last step. Now you can map your internal fields. You’ll see our suggestions as well, so you can decide if everything looks good and continue to finish creating your shop and adding channels.
