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.

1. Set up your special offers/sales

To set up special offers/sales, fill in the following fields:

  • "Prix_public" (public price) : Starting price of the product (crossed out price)
  • "Prix_catalogue" (catalogue price) : Reduced price of the product
For new collection products, excluding promotions, these two fields must contain the same value.  

For special event promotions, complete the following fields:
(To use this process, BrandAlley must be notified in advance.)  
  • "Prix_public" (public price) : Starting price of the product (crossed out price)
  • "Prix_catalogue" (catalogue price) : Reduced price of the product
  • "id_operation_commerciale" (Operation code) : this field must contain a unique reference number for the business operation. The operation code is required and must be communicated and confirmed by BrandAlley before launching the business operation. Without doing this, the price indicated in the " Prix_catalogue " field will not be applied. This reference number must be different for each new business operation.   

 

Winter Sales 2022 : From 12/01/2022 to 08/02/2022
  •  the feed containing the sales prices must be sent on the 12/01/2022
  • the configuration of the price feed remains the same as the usual one, you have to send the sale price in the "Catalogue Price" field and not use the "Flash Sale Price" field if it exists in your feed
  •  it is not necessary to add a trade transaction identifier in the supplier price feed
  • send the feed with the non-discounted prices after the sales ended

 

Black Friday: The settings are similar to the usual promotion settings. Do not enter any id_operation_commerciale for this event.

2. Delivery method and costs

Delivery methods and costs are set up in your BrandAlley back office. 

Fill in the "poids" field (weight). This will be used by BrandAlley to calculate the shipping costs. 
Fill in the "delai_expedition" field (shipping time) with a numerical value, only if the item is not available immediately.

3. Variations

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.

    • Offer Feed: enables the update of prices, stock, etc. It is sent to the channel every hour.

Read Integration Reports

Read Product Report to check that your products are properly configured.

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.
