Add a channel catalogue

Add a Fruugo 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.

Some fields are mandatory and must be completed. Other fields are optional but Fruugo recommends you to fill them in to improve your products visibility.

General Tips for Fruugo:

  • View the submission from an international customers perspective who would be looking to purchase, and supply all suitable information rather than the minimum requirements.
  • Use Title case for all fields. Do not write in capitals or lower case.
  • Always check grammar and spelling. If there is a mistake on a search field the product will not be found.
  • Use the manufacturers/brands official product information as a base for your content where possible.

1. Set up special offers

To manage promotions, fill in these fields:

  • "NormalPriceWithVAT": Indicate the standard price before promotion
  • "DiscountPriceWithVAT": Indicate the discounted price with VAT
  • "DiscountPriceStartDate": Specify the start date of the promotion
  • "DiscountPriceEndDate": Indicate the end date of the promotion

Date format accepted by Fruugo: DD:MM:YY; DD:MM:YYYY; YY:MM:DD; YYYY:MM:DD; DDMM-YY; DD-MM-YYYY; YY-MM-DD; YYYY-MM-DD

2. Delivery methods & costs

Your delivery charges should be provided to your Fruugo Integration contact directly via the  Supplied Fruugo Shipping Template.

Please refer to the Fruugo Support Wiki for assistance.

3. Variations

Fruugo accepts product variations. The following attributes are to be completed to set up your variation:

  • "Sku id": Unique ID of the variant product (child line)
  • "Product id"": Parent product ID (common to all variant products)
  • "Size": Use this attribute if you have different sizes for one product.

Fruugo recommends to include the size for all products, however the field should not include generic terms such as "one size" or "o/s" (unless clothing & footwear).  

  • "Color": Use this attribute if you have different colors for one product.

Fruugo recommends to include a colour for all products, however the field should not include generic terms such as "multi-coloured", "mixed" or "one colour" (unless clothing & footwear).  

  • Attribute 1 - 10: If you other variations to set for one product (ex: fabric), use the attributes "Attribute1" etc ...
If your product is "simple", no variations, then complete the "product ID" with the same value as the one you set in Sku id. 

Parent products must be excluded from the feed sent, if your products catalogue contains any.
