Add a channel catalogue
Add the channel catalogue in your Lengow account.

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 Facebook 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 Facebook recommends you fill them in to improve your products visibility.
A specific, relevant title for the item. Include keywords, such as brand, attributes, or condition. Make sure that product titles satisfy catalog requirements.
Example: Blue Facebook T-Shirt (Unisex)
- out of stock (Not available in current stock)
- brand, mpn ou gtin
Brand name, unique manufacturer part number (MPN), or Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) of the item. You only need to enter one of these, not all of them. For GTIN, enter the item's UPC, EAN, JAN, or ISBN.
- Daily Deals inventory must also include mpn if brand is provided. Required if no manufacturer assigned gtin.
Focus "Images" as Required Attributes
Follow these image specifications:

- Product images display in square (1:1) format. The minimum image size is 500 x 500 px.

- "sale_price": discounted price and currency of the item (e.g: 9.99 USD)
- "sale_price_effective_date": Time range for your sale period, including the date, time, and time zone when your sale starts and ends. If you don't enter sale dates, any items with a sale_price remains on sale until you remove their sale price.

- Type the start date as YYYY-MM-DD.
- Type "T" after start date.
