darty_logo.png

Fnac Darty group is unifying its back office, Fnac (France and Belgium) and Darty marketplaces becoming a unique plateform. News and details here!

Contact Fnac Darty Group (vendeurspros.mp@fnac.com) to know if you are eligible to sell your products on their website.
To distribute your products on Darty, check that your products catalogue contains the data normally required by Lengow.

EAN Matching

Darty allows EAN Matching, i.e. if your products have already been created by the marketplace by another reseller, you don't need to send the "products" values usually required to create the product ad on this channel. Matching is done on the basis of the EAN code.
Your offer will be added to already existing product page.

For these products, make sure to fill in the following offer fields:

  • ean
  • sku
  • price
  • quantity
  • state

Add a channel catalogue

Add a Darty channel catalogue in your Lengow account.

We recommend defining a Segment within your product catalogue to only configure and send the products you want to publish on this channel.

Match Categories

Match your categories with Darty'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 values or match with your products catalogue values.
If a value is missing in the drop-down menu, please contact your Fnac Darty 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 Darty recommends you fill them in to improve your products visibility.

1. Set up your special offers/sales/Black Friday

Note: FNAC Darty may offer reduced commission rates, please consult their documentation

  • To sum up

Certain categories and attributes will be removed and replaced by new ones.

  • What you have to do in Lengow

Check the settings of the products in the affected categories (see below the original message for the list of categories):

  • Original message

[...] Fnac and Darty have worked on the standardization of our catalogues since April. This has led to changes in the list of categories and attributes to be filled in your flows for creating or modifying product sheets for the categories below :

    • Sport & leisure
    • DIY & Gardening
    • Pets products
    • Music instruments
    • Goodies

Following the different deployment task, you may have to recreate your offer. [...]

DARTY :
New categories and attributes can be used since Saturday 2nd of July (MIRAKL has been updated and the old categories/attributes deleted).
There won’t be any technical shut down during migration. 

If you usually work with an API flow, with a channel manager or regularly update your offer CSV, don’t worry, your offers will be automatically recreated.
In case of a manual management of your offers from the seller back office, you may have to recreate them. We invite you to check after our category updates that your offers are still online.

If you have created product sheets in those categories in the past, we will change their categories and make changes to bring the content to the new attributes. For your future product creations, you need to use one of the categories listed in the file below: https://fnacdartymarketplace.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/New_CategoriesAttributes_Diversif_lot2.xlsx.

We are completely aware that these projects impact you on a daily basis, and we are working to improve our transition processes for the Fnac/Darty Marketplaces so that it is transparent for you.
If you have any questions, you can contact us at support-marketplace-darty@fnacdarty.com with the subject line « Uniformization of product categories ».
