Creating a Facebook Catalog and Uploading your FeedOps Catalog Feed

The product feed created by FeedOps can be upload to any existing Facebook Catalog. Alternatively, you can create a new Facebook Catalog and upload your product feed to it.

Create a new Facebook Catalog

  1. Go to Commerce Manager.
  2. Start creating your catalogue:
    • If this will be your first catalogue, Get Started. Select Create a catalogue and then click Get Started.
    • If you already have at least one catalogue, you'll see all of your catalogues listed. Select + Add Catalogue to create a new one.
  3. Select e-commerce (products) as the type of inventory you sell and click Next
  4. Select Upload product info as the method you want to use to add items to your catalogue
  5. Select the Business Manager account or personal account that your catalogue belongs to. You'll need to select a business account to unlock most channels to use your catalogue and to assign other people with permissions to work on the catalogue. You must be an admin of the Business Manager account to select it.
  6. Select a name for your catalog.
  7. Click Create

Upload a data feed to a Facebook Catalog

  1. Go to Commerce Manager.
  2. Open the Catalogue tab and go to Data sources.
  3. Select Add items.
  4. Select Use bulk upload followed by Next.
  5. Select Scheduled feed as the upload option for your data feed and click Next.
  6. Enter the URL of your feed from FeedOps and click Next.
  7. Select whether you want scheduled uploads to happen hourly, daily or weekly and the time you want them to happen. Leave the Add automatic updates option toggle set to on so your catalogue is also updated whenever Facebook detects that a new file version of your FeedOps feed has been generated. Click Next.
  8. Enter a name for your scheduled feed.
  9. Select a default currency. If the prices in your data feed don't include an ISO currency code, this default currency will display in any ads or commerce channels connected to your catalogue.
  10. Click Upload or Next.
  11. If your data feed has any column naming issues, you may see these listed. For example, there might be a misspelled column (field) name or one that Facebook don't support. Under Column issues, match columns in your file to Facebooks required columns. Under Unrecognisable columns, you can also match any columns that Facebook don't recognise to ones they support. Then, click Start upload. Facebook will create data feed rules to automatically map these columns for future uploads of this data feed.
