Contact But to know if you are eligible to sell your products on their website.
To distribute your products on this marketplace, check that your products catalogue contains the data normally required by Lengow.
But allows EAN Matching, i.e. if your products have already been created by the marketplace by another reseller, you don't need to send the "products" values usually required to create the product ad on this channel.
When adding a new offer, the import process must identify the product associated with the offer.
There are several ways to match an offer with a product :
- Using a product unique identifier: EAN, ISBN, and so on.
- In the "product-id-type" field, enter "EAN" (or ISBN, or else).
- In the "product-id" field, enter the unique identifier value.
- Using your internal product SKU.
You must have previously sent your product SKU to the channel via the product import process. There are two ways to match the product with the offer:
- If your offer SKU is the same as your product SKU (which is different from the operator product SKU):
Enter the SKU value in the "sku" field and leave the "product-id" and "product-id-type" fields empty.
- If your offer SKU is not the same as your product SKU:
- In the "sku" field, enter your offer SKU.
- In the "product-id-type" field, enter "SHOP_SKU".
- In the "product-id" field, enter your product SKU value.
In addition to either methods above, make sure to fill in other mandatory "offer" fields (such as "state", "warranty", ...) to make it valide for the channel.
Add a channel catalogue
Add But channel in your Lengow account.
We recommend defining a Segment within your product catalogue to only configure and send the products you want to publish on this channel.
Match your categories with But's using "Categories Matching".
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 But 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 But recommends you fill them in to improve your products visibility.
Get compliant with anti-waste law (AGEC)
An attribute is provided by But to enter the IDU of your products:
It will be coupled with the amount of the eco-tax to be filled in as well. Use the following format:
If the producer has no value, you must indicate 0.00.
Ex : "Producer1|3.00,Producer2|0.00
This new attribute replaces the "D3E Amount" and "WEEE Amount" attributes. They will eventually be deleted.
More info on the anti-waste law in the dedicated article.
Some specifics for BUT:
Title must contain at least:
- sub-category of product
A request to create the brand must be send to BUT beforehand, otherwise it will not appear in Lengow
- product reference : commercial reference
Example: ACER Ordinateur portable 15,6" A315-33-C3QG Aspire
- The "poduct advantage" fields are strongly recommended (roduct_advantage1, product_advantage2, product_advantage3).
To set up special offers/sales, fill in the following fields:
- price: strikethrough price of your product (original price). If your product is not discounted, this field must be filled in with your usual selling price.
- discount-price: discounted price of your product.
- soldes: during the sales period only, this field is used to indicate if a product with a strikethrough price is on sale or not. By indicating the value "true", a "Sales" sticker will be displayed on the But.fr website. Enter "false" for products not on sale.
2. Delivery method and costs
Shipping costs and delivery methods are defined by But. Contact But to obtain the table of costs.
Select delivery methods in your But back office.
Please note that each product is linked to a logistics category. The shipping costs are calculated on the basis of:
- the delivery method linked to the product
- the logistics category linked to the product
For the logistics category, you may choose between several options:
Keep the logistics category assigned by default by But. In that case, no action needs to be taken by you in Lengow.
Change the logistics category assigned by default by But. In that case, fill in the field "logistic_class" (contact your But account manager to obtain the list of authorised values).
Note: Go to your Mirakl back office if you want to set up free shipping costs for all your products.
3. Variation values
But doesn't manage products variations and will create a separate product page for each product variation from your products catalogue.
For instance, there will be different product pages for a mobile phone available in different colors on But:
- One product sheet for the product X in black
- One product sheet for the product X in grey
- One product sheet for the product X in red

- Offer Feed: enables the update of prices, stock, etc. It is sent to the channel hourly. When the channel receives the offer feed, data is updated almost immediately on the channel website.
