In many cases, a merchant may need to edit product details for different feeds. Your products may be priced differently on marketplaces than they are on your actual online store; or perhaps VAT requirements in the UK necessitate changes to your UK feeds without affecting the same products on your US feeds. No matter the issue, ShoppingFeeder allows for customizable feed changes that best suit the merchant's needs. Here's a step-by-step guide to using our Channel Filters.
The first step is to head to your Subscribed Channels. Log into your dashboard and go to Feed Management > Channel Management. Then click on the Tools icon below the 'Custom Filters' column, as shown below:
You should then see the Channel Filters as shown below. To create a filter, simply click on Add.
- Exclusive filters: Any products matching the parameters set here will be excluded from your feeds.
- Inclusive filters: Only the products matching the parameters set here will be included in your feeds.
For each operator, there are four parameters:
- Field - the product attribute the operator will refer to
- Type - the format of the attribute value. The dropdown will exclude any irrelevant types.
- Function - there are 5 available functions that determine how the operator behaves.
- Is equal to
- Is not equal to
- Does not contain
- Is empty
- Value - The field value the operator will search for
You want to include only products with the title 'Car Air Freshener' in your Google(US) feed. See the operator below.
The field you want the operator to refer to is the Title field.
The format of the field is String (words or phrases).
The function will be Contains, since we are looking for Titles that contain certain words.
The value is the particular string/words the title must contain, which in this case will be the words 'Car Air Freshener'.
Be sure to click Save once you've set up your filter.
In your Pricecheck(ZA) feed, you want to exclude all products that are out of stock.
The field the operator refers to will be the Stock Quantity field.
The type will be Float (format of number types).
The function will be Is Equal To.
The value will 0 i.e. when there are 0 units of the product in stock.
