Complete Attributes Matching
Match your products catalogue fields with the fields requested by the channel, based on fields definitions. 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 Brandalley 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 Brandalley recommends you fill them in to improve your products visibility.
More info on Attributes matching in our dedicated guide.
2. Delivery method and costs
Delivery methods and costs are set up in your BrandAlley back office.
BrandAlley only accepts variations in size.
However, for a product that varies by colour, it is possible to fill in a common parent ID, which BrandaAlley will be using along with the colour field. In this case, a product sheet by colour will still be created by BrandAlley.
Here are attributes to fill in:
- "reference_modele" (Model reference): the parent IDs of your product variations (a common ID for variations of the same product). For your products that do not have variations in size and/or colour, complete this field with your “product ID.”
- "couleur" (Colour): your product’s colour (if relevant)
- "code_couleur" (Colour code): specify your product’s colour (if applicable)
- "Taille" (Size): your product’s size.
Parent products must be excluded from the feed sent to BrandAlley, if your products catalogue contains any.

Read Integration Reports
Read Product Report to check that your products are properly configured.
This report indicates whether the product is online or offline and the associated error if any.
Keep in mind that BrandAlley's uploading process is manual and therefore a product that is offline does not necessarily have an associated error.
More info on Integration reports in our dedicated guide.
Edit a product File
Once a product has been published, only the product’s price and stock can be edited from Lengow. If you make any editorial changes (changing the title, image, description, etc.) from your e-commerce back office (source feed) or from Lengow, the change will not be made automatically in BrandAlley.
If you wish to change your editorial content, contact BrandAlley so it can make the modification manually.
