How to create a Wish feed
The first step to creating a Wish feed is to create a merchant account by going through their initial signup process at https://merchant.wish.com/welcome. After your account is setup, you will need to begin setting up your store with a product feed.
You are able to batch upload multiple products at the same time by using their Add Products tool in the Merchant Dashboard. Go to Products, Add Products and then Feed File.

Optional Wish Feed Fields with description of each field
For the optional fields, if you do not need to add an attribute for a particular item, you can simply leave that column out of your spreadsheet. For example, if you are selling one size fits all socks and it does not require a size, then you may omit the ‘size’ column from your spreadsheet.

Wish.com’s system uses this Parent Unique Id to identify, track, update, and report on this item.|

What formats does Wish accept (CSV, XML, API, etc)
Wish primarily wants users to upload product files via CSV but they also have the ability to receive files directly with their API
How to send your Wish feed (FTP, URL, etc)
The primary way to send your feed to Wish is by uploading a CSV file inside of the Merchant Center Interface. Login to your account and then click Products> Add New Products> Product CSV File. This will take you to http://merchant.wish.com/feed-upload . Once at this page, select your CSV file and click Submit.
You will then be directed to a new page where you will need to match your feed’s attribute names to ours. On this page you will also see a preview of the product information you are uploading. You should receive an immediate confirmation when your feed was accepted but please not that it may take up to 24 hours to finish importing your products
We work with businesses everyday and know that you want your products available everywhere. So what are the options? You can try spreadsheets, but you have to start over and re-import every time you need to update pricing, inventory levels, or products (sometimes multiple times per day). You then have to re-optimize using best practices or you send junk (which is nearly impossible when you have a lot of SKUs), or you could try using some of the off the shelf “do-it-yourself” product feed platforms, but many are grossly inadequate, too complicated, difficult to use. Others are too simple and can’t properly clean your product feeds, requiring you to put in countless hours of manual work. Others are too pricey costing thousands each month.
Many business owners decide that it would be better to let us help them get their feeds working properly.
