Building your product feed
Here's how you can set up Shopzilla for your Online Store:
1. Proceed to Sales Channels > All Sales Channels > Marketplaces and select Shopzilla.
2. Choose these parameters showing under Settings:
Marketplace category: Select a category in which your items will be shown at Shopzilla sites. You should define a category that would best categorize the products to increase conversions.
Product condition: What condition your products are sold in, e.g., brand new items or reused.
3. Click Save to submit the changes.
4. Copy the Feed link which connects to the products feed, a file containing information on your products. You will need to load it to your Shopzilla account. This feed is generated automatically by the Online Store and updated every 12 hours.
The feed usually fully meets the requirements of Shopzilla and associated websites so you only need to download it from the Online Store control panel and upload it to your Shopzilla account.
