Galeries Lafayette (Mirakl)


Contact the marketplace to know if you are eligible to sell your products on their website.

To distribute your products on Galeries Lafayette, check that your products catalogue contains the data normally required.

Note: you don't have these values in your product catalogue? Contact the Lengow Support Team to find an alternative.

EAN Matching

Galeries Lafayette 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. 

When adding a new offer, the import process must identify the product associated with the offer.

There are several ways to match an offer with a product :

  •  Using a product unique identifier: EAN, ISBN, and so on.
  1. In the "product-id-type" field, enter "EAN" (or ISBN, or else).
  2. In the "product-id" field, enter the unique identifier value. 
  • Using your internal product SKU.

You must have previously sent your product SKU to the channel via the product import process. There are two ways to match the product with the offer:

  1. If your offer SKU is the same as your product SKU (which is different from the operator product SKU):
    Enter the SKU value in the "sku" field and leave the "product-id" and "product-id-type" fields empty.
  2. If your offer SKU is not the same as your product SKU:
    1. In the "sku" field, enter your offer SKU.
    2. In the "product-id-type" field, enter "SHOP_SKU".
    3. In the "product-id" field, enter your product SKU value.

In addition to either methods above, make sure to fill in other mandatory "offer" fields (such as "state", "warranty", ...) to make it valide for the channel.

When updating an offer, Mirakl uses only the SKU field. If the "product-id" and "product-id-type" fields are specified, the process checks that the corresponding product is the same as the one already assigned to the offer.

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 Galeries Lafayette 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 Galeries Lafayette recommends you fill them in to improve your products visibility.

1. Set up your special offers/sales

  • price: strikethrough price of your product (original price). If your products are not discounted, this field must be filled in with your usual selling price.
  • discount-price: discounted price of your product. If your products are not on sale this field should be empty.
  • discount-start-date (optional): the date on which your promotion/sale begins. If you fill in this field and the "discount_price" field, the promotion will only begin on the date provided. Format: yyyy-mm-dd.
  • discount-end-date (optional): the date on which your promotion/sale ends. If you fill in this field and the "discount_price" field, the promotion will stop on the date provided. Format: yyyy-mm-dd.

Launch the channel catalogue

Before sending your optimised catalogue to the channel:

      • Check that your channel online store has been created and opened.
      • Check that there are no rules created in your channel back office.

Send your optimised catalogue to the channel

Two distinct feeds are sent to the channel through API:

  • Product Feed: enables the integration and creation of products. It is sent to the channel once a day. If your products are free from errors, they will be created on the channel and will appear online within 48 hours, after the offer feed has been sent.
  • Offer Feed: enables the update of prices, stock, etc. It is sent to the channel every hours. When the channel receives the offer feed, data is updated almost immediately on the channel website.

Read Integration Reports

Read product and offer Integration Reports to check that your products are properly configured, either at product creation level (product feed) or updates (offer feed). These reports list only items which were rejected by the channel. For each product in error, the channel specifies the reason for the rejection.

Product and offer integration reports are available and downloadable from:

  • Lengow: "Channel" tab > select "name of the channel" > click on "Activity"
  • Your Channel Mirakl back office:
    • Products feed report: "My Inventory" > "Import From File" > "Track product imports"
    • Offers feed report : "My Inventory" > "Import From File" > "Track offer imports"

Edit a product file

Contact your Galeries Lafayette account manager to edit this data.

Data is automatically updated as soon as the offer feed is sent out.

      • Simple: there will be no preview of the product page on your store, but the link to the product page will remain active.
      • With variations: the product page still exists with the other sizes/colors available.
  • To delete an offer from your BHV Mirakl back office, set the quantity of the product at 0 (zero) in the "Attributs Matching" area.
It is necessary to exclude the deleted products from the feed to avoid any error.
