Build a custom feed template

If you need a custom feed file in which you control the column headers, file format, and more, then you may build it using a custom template. Our app allows you to build your own feed in .csv or .txt format.


Feed specifications from the channel

Often, channels provided data definitions or specifications for the format in which they accept your product data. For example, Google's product feed specifications shows you how Google accepts product data for Google Shopping and their feed spec is used by many channels to process your product data.


Now that you have added a template to your store, we'll discuss how to setup your feed.
