Contact Secretsales (Christian Raben / firstname.lastname@example.org) to know if you are eligible to sell your products on their website.

Note: you don't have these values in your products catalogue? Contact the Lengow Support Team to find an alternative.
3 countries are available in Lengow for Secret Sales:
- United Kingdom
- The Netherlands
The country of distribution must be enabled in your Mirakl account before setting up the feed in Lengow.
A Secret Sales Mirakl Shop must be created for each country you wish to display your products in.
If you want to sell in Belgium in both languages, you will need to add one feed and set up bith languages (French and Dutch) in this feed.
Each feed will get a different ShopID, therefore each feed would have to be opened in a different Lengow sub-account. If you do not have sub-account yet, please contact your account manager.
Each country feed requires its own offer for each product (i.e. a price and a stock).
Add a channel catalogue
Add a Secretsales channel catalogue in your Lengow account.
In case of Multi-Country
Search for "SecretSales" within "United-Kingdom" country and add the channel and add this feed as many times as the number of country desired.
The location of this channel in the search filters in Lengow is temporary and will evolve so that multi-country structures are accessible via the search filters in line with the countries of destination.
Match your categories with Secretsales's through "Categories Matching".
Complete Attributes Matching
Match your products catalogue fields with the fields requested by the channel, based on field definition. If necessary, enter hard values, use functions and/or adapt the values by creating rules. For fields with valid values, select the suggested value or match with your products catalogue values.
If a value is missing in the drop-down menu, please contact your Secretsales account manager and ask for the creation of the concerned value.
Some fields are mandatory and must be completed for your products to be created or updated. Other fields are optional but Secretsales recommends you fill them in to improve your products visibility.

For the logistics category, you may choose between several options:
Keep the logistics category assigned by default by the channel. In that case, no action needs to be taken by you in Lengow.
Change the logistics category assigned by default by the channel. In that case, fill in the field "logistic_class" (contact your channel account manager to obtain the list of authorised values).

To send products with variation complete these attributes:
- variant_group_code: parent ID, enables your products to be grouped under one product sheet on SecretSales
- measurements_en_GB: your variant product size. use GB classification
4. Multi-country settings
Specific product attributes are available depending on the country of publication.
The product attributes (title, description, etc.) to be filled in contain the code corresponding to the language and country of publication of your products.
For example, for the Dutch market, use product attributes with a label ending in "_NL" (e.g. "product_name-nl_NL", "description-nl_NL", "fabric-nl_NL").
Pay attention to the attributes for the Belgian market, as these have to be completed for both languages within your Belgium feed:
- French-speaking Belgian (attributes end in -fr_BE)
- Dutch-speaking Belgian (attributes end in -nl_BE)
Secret Sales offers the capability for you to translate your data into the languages of the target channel. Should you require your product data to be translated, please specify which language to be specified in the "translations_required" attribute.

- Offer Feed: enables the update of prices, stock, etc. It is sent to Secretsales every hour. When Secretsales receives the offer feed, data is updated almost immediately on Secretsales website.
