El Corte Inglés (Mirakl)

eci-letras.png

El Corte Inglés is divided in Lengow into two different channel structures: 

  • The "Product" feed, which generates an optimised feed with csv format. It has to be sent manually to the marketplace and aims to create and update products data (title, images, description, variations, ...). Lengow Support team can help you to integrate your products data into this feed.  

  • The "Offers" feed which is linked to Mirakl and which is specific for price, quantity, delivery information and promotions updates. You can use this channel if your products already exist on the marketplace and you don't want to add other products.

First time on El Corte Inglés? Before any addition in Lengow, contact our Support Team to have your products data integrated with the file transmitted by El Corte Inglés.

To display your products on this marketplace, check that your products catalogue contains the data normally required by Lengow.

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

Set up the "Products" feed

The "Products" feed is also called "Catalogue" feed. It is personalized by El Corte Inglés for each merchant.

You can:

  • Create this feed manually based on the template generated by El Corte Inglés. You'll have to send your products data to El Corte Inglés as a CSV file. Please contact your channel account manager for more information about it.
  • Generate this feed with Lengow. In that case, please contact the Lengow Support team sending us the structure template given by El Corte Inglés - make sure to send only one file for the whole feed. We'll integrate it in your Lengow account. You'll then have to follow the steps detailed below.
El Corte Inglés allows EAN matching. To use this feature make sure you have mapped your EAN codes at the Attributes mapping step below. 

Complete Attributes mapping

map 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 map with your products catalogue values.
