Now when you go to add a shop to your account, you’ll notice that the page looks a little different. Our goal was to make the process as quick, easy, and as straightforward as possible for you. It's the same app you love, but now enhanced.
You’ll see new changes throughout all 3 stages of the shop wizard, plus some new features. 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. We’ll point out all the new changes along the way.
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.
New 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.
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.
Step 4: 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.
Optional step 5: Merge settings
You can skip this step if you used only one source for your data feeds.
Now that your new shop has been created and 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.
So now you’ve seen the whole process of how to use the new shop wizard. As always, we appreciate your feedback and hope this has improved your overall experience. Have any additional questions? Our Support team is always happy to hear from you.
