Advanced Commands grant you more control over your feeds. They provide a way to create your own attribute, map from non-standard ones or modify and delete feed data.

How To Use Advanced Commands
After selecting a Merchant Type, navigate to the bottom of the page and click [Open Advanced Commands].
A textbox will be displayed where you can enter commands to apply rules and customize your feed.
The advanced command can be used to customize your feed:
In the above example:
The first command sets the brand attribute as “Your Store Name” for all items
The second line adds a discount rule: multiplies all regular prices by 1.2 (essentially increases all prices by 20%)
Don’t forget to hit Update. Click “Get Feed” again for immediate changes
