Connect your Google shopping feed to Cevoid

To be able to tag your UGC posts with your product we need to sync your product catalogue to our systems. Follow the steps below to get set up correctly. Note that it can in some cases be good to set up additional feeds for Cevoid instead of trying to configure or optimize your Google feeds that are already in action.

Make sure that your feed is an XML file and follow Google’s standard formatting, and contains the required attributes below. Follow this documentation for general information: Product data specification

Required values

  • id

  • title

  • link

  • price

  • google_product_category or product_type
    Used as a category for the filter in the platform

  • image_link (Main image of for the product)

    Try to keep the image size smaller than 500px in width and height. If you need a large image for Google then we recommend creating a new set of feeds for Cevoid instead.


Optional (use for best-practice)

additional_image_link

In our popups we alternate the product image to a second image to show more details about the product. If you provide additional image links this function will be supported in the galleries and popups.

Try to keep the image size smaller than 1000px in width and height. If you need a large image for Google then we recommend creating a new set of feeds for Cevoid instead.


item_group_id

Use the item group ID [item_group_id] attribute to group product variants in your product data. Variants are a group of similar products that only differ from one another by product details like size, color, material, pattern etc. Including this value is crucial to have a good product linking experience between variants on your website and will save you lots of time!


Steps-by-step

  1. Log into Cevoid, then select Settings > integrations > Google shopping feed

  2. Press the button “Connect feed”

  3. Enter the URL to your feed

  4. Select what Currency you want your product prices to be displayed in

  5. When you have added the URL and selected Currency, press “Connect feed”, and we will start importing the products from your feed.

  6. When everything has been set up correctly, you will see two messages in the bottom right corner, one telling the feed is connected and one telling we have imported n products.


    You will also see that some new information has appeared on the page: how many products we have imported, the last time we synced your feed, buttons for starting a manual sync as well as a button for disconnecting your feed.

  7. We automatically sync your Google shopping feeds every hour and check if data has been updated!
