Because the setup is relatively simple and all required fields are automatically mapped from common fields, clicking Get Feed as is will likely create a successful Become Data Feed.

Setting up / changing the delivery-charge, delivery-period or merchant-category is done by entering a few lines in the plugin’s Advanced Commands box, examples below:

    • To set your delivery-charge, enter: setAttributeDefault delivery_charge as “4.50”
    • To set your delivery-period-text: setAttribuiteDefault delivery_period_text as “3-5 days”

The feed can be found from the plugin’s Manage Feeds page. Here you can find the public URL to your Become feed.
