4. Attribute Mapping

  • Please do not skip this step. Mapping your store’s attributes or setting valid values for required merchant fields is the most important step in creating successful data feeds.
  • Each Merchant has their own strict set of required attributes – they are shown in the plugin’s attribute table once you select a Merchant Type (attached screenshot). You can also see required attributes here.
  • To meet these requirements, you will need to create attributes (if you haven’t already) and then map your attributes to Merchant ones.
