Contact the marketplace to know if you are eligible to sell your products on their website.   

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

EAN Matching

home24 allows EAN matching to link your offers with existing products on the marketplace. 

To publish your offers through EAN matching, make sure to complete the following attributes:

  • "product-id" with the EAN code of your products
  • "product-id-type" with the value "EAN-13"
  • the fields indicated as mandatory or "Required at offer creation" (price, state, etc.), as well as the quantity.

Add a channel catalogue

Four countries are available for home24: Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland.

Add a channel catalogue in your Lengow account for each country in which you wish to publish your products.

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

Match Categories

Match your categories 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 channel 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 the channel recommends you fill them in to improve your products visibility.

1. Set up your special offers/sales

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.
  • "discount-start-date" (optional): the date on which your promotion/sale begins. If you fill in this field and the "discount_price" field, the promotion will only begin on the date provided. Format: yyyy-mm-dd
  • "discount-end-date" (optional): the date on which your promotion/sale ends. If you fill in this field and the "discount_price" field, the promotion will stop on the date provided. Format: yyyy-mm-dd
Sales: To find out the deadline for sending your sales data, please contact marketing.mp@home24.de

Home24 regularly organizes voucher campaigns with fixed discount percentages. Detailed information is sent by home24 by email, you can sign up to a campaign in Mirakl (in "Price and Stock" > "Promotions").

2. Delivery methods and costs

Shipping costs and delivery methods are defined by the channel. Contact it to obtain the table of costs.

2.1. Delivery methods

Select delivery methods in your channel back office.

2.2. Shipping costs

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 the channel. 
In that case, no action needs to be taken by you in Lengow.

OR

Change the logistics category assigned by default by the channel.
In that case, select the appropriate value in the "logistic_class" attribute:

  • "Parcel standard" (code: PCL - M)
  • "2MH standard" (code: 2MH - M)
  • "2MH Delivery to curb"

2.3. Leadtime-to-ship

It corresponds to the time (in days) necessary to prepare an order. 

Lead time to ship can be useful for built-on-demand products which need to be built, prepared, and packaged before they are sent. In this case you can specify a lead time to ship of five days for example, so that the customer knows that it will take five days before you ship the order.

The default maximum lead time to ship is set to 45 days.  

Go to your Mirakl back office if you want to set up free shipping costs for all your products.  

3. Variation values

home24 accepts product variations, which can be created based on the following criteria: "Main color", "Main material", and/or by dimensions ("width", "height" and/or "depth").

To group your product variations, fill in the "baseProduct" attribute with your product's "parent" identifier. The parent ID is the common ID that groups all the variants of a product. 

The attribute "variantNameMerchant" is a free text field which can be used to elaborate on variable parts of a product name (e.g. material, color, etc.).
This subheading specific to the child product is displayed in grey under the main title of the product. When "variantNameMerchant" is left blank, the color, size and dimensions (if filled in) are displayed in this grey subheading.

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

4. Other specific settings

  • productNameMerchant :
    The product title must contain between 5 and 40 characters. A TRUNC function may be used to limit the length of your titles.
  • quantity :
    Although your product quantity is not mandatory for the initial product creation, make sure to fill in this attribute to publish your offers.
  • product-id :
    home24 requires your product's EAN codes in this field (not your SKUs).
    As a consequence, select the corresponding value "EAN-13" for the "product-id-type" field.
  • images :
    home24 requires images on a white background, in .png or .jpg format.

  • eco-contributions :
    Mandatory for France under AGEC law. Enter in this field the unique identifier number (IDU) followed by the corresponding amount of eco-tax. Example: FR016757_10W2N7|1.5
