How can you create an AWIN Product Feed?

AWIN allows you to create feeds into multiple formats. You can either create your AWIN feed in CSV, TSV, or even XML. Of course, delimited is probably going to be the easier option.

What fields do you need in an AWIN Feed?

The most important fields you need are the following 7 fields:

product_id – the unique ID of your product

product_name – Your product title

price – The product price

deep_link – the URL landing page of your product.

description – product description

merchant_category – the category of your product. The full AWIN category list is located here. Feedonomics can easily map your own internal merchant categories to the AWIN categories.

image_url – your image URL, hosted on your server – preferably 200×200 px.

 

AWIN also has dozens of other optional attribute fields that you can use:
