Before we start digging in let's clarify what a product data feed is. According to wikipedia:

"A product feed or product data feed is a file made up of a list of products and attributes of those products organized so that each product can be displayed, advertised or compared in a unique way. A product feed typically contains a product image, title, product identifier, marketing copy, and product attributes."

The product data feed files look different depending on where you wish to use them: comparison websites, marketplaces, search engines or ad management platforms. Most of these services have their own product data feed type. If you have a small amount of products in your inventory, you can create your data feed manually by downloading the sample feed provided by the selected service or you can also set up a data feed by using plugins on Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce or Magento. But what happens when you have a large amount of product and you don't sell on Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce or Magento? And what happens when you wish to create feeds for multiple platforms? Well, you can use MyStoreFeed to create your feeds with a few easy clicks and save precious time.

After you create your MyStoreFeed account and confirm your email address, you will need to import your product from your shopping cart platform with a single click. Since MyStoreFeed is created for small or medium businesses like yours, we allow only 1000 products to import. Feel free to use other platforms if you have more than 1000 products. To import your products select the shopping cart platform you are using and add the request information and click “Import”. Please DON'T close your browser until the import is finished.

At the moment you can upgrade your products only manually by simply clicking the “Add/Update products” button under the “Products” menu. We are working hard to automatise the product upgrade as soon as possible. You will need to go through the steps as you did when you first imported your products. If you wish to import from other sources, first you will need to delete your current products from the “Products” menu by clicking the “Empty list” button. Some product data feeds (for example Google Merchant) require extra data for your products. You can add these data for multiple products by selecting the product and clicking the “Edit product” button or you can add these data separately for every product by clicking the edit icon in the Manage column on your product list.

When your products are successfully imported you can create your feeds. By clicking the “Channels” menu you will find a list of the available channels. Search for the desired platform and click the “Install” button in order to install the channel.

After installing a channel you can access the feed from two locations. By clicking the “View” button under the selected channel under the “Channel” menu or by accessing the “My feeds” menu. By doing so you will find the list of your installed feeds and you can manage your feeds.

Copy your feed in order to add to the selected platform. Most of the platforms have a short documentation on how to add your feed. For example, if you created a Facebook Catalog type of feed you can add to the feed on Facebook by selecting the “Set a Schedule” option and copying the feed in the URL field.

Accessing the Statistics menu you can view how many times your feeds have been automatically uploaded by the installed channels.

That’s it. Great job, you just created your product feeds for more than 80 channels with only a few clicks. Share this revolution on your social media platforms!

Reach billion buyers and increase your sales.
