GoDataFeed has 200+ shopping channel feed templates and marketplace channel feed templates, representing all of the top channels in the ecommerce space. All of our feed templates are built according to feed specifications provided by the channel.

To submit your products in a feed to these channels, you must first add the template for your desired channel to your GoDataFeed store, and then format your product data into the template to meet channel requirements.

Submitting your product data to channels in the right format is important for creating successful product listings.


Where to add feed templates

  • New Users who have connected the primary source following the steps in the previous article will see the 'Add Feeds' button available on their Dashboard on the 'Getting started' card:

How to search for and add feed templates

  • Click 'Browse channels' to view, filter, and search all of our pre-built channel feed templates

    If GoDataFeed does not have a pre-built template for the channel you would like to submit products to, you can build a custom feed template in our system. Most channels provide feed data specifications for product feeds. For example, Google's product feed specifications show you how Google accepts product data for Google Shopping and their feed spec is used by many channels to process your product data. 

    Learn more about custom feed requirements.

  • Click 'Select' for the feed template you would like to add to your GoDataFeed Store

  • You may be prompted to approve any subscription changes (please note: subscription changes may be $0.00 if your plans includes the type of feed you selected).

  • Once you have activated your new feed, you will click 'Compile Feed' so our system can auto-map some of the common feed fields for this template, and do an initial validation of your product data against the requirements of this channel:
