Listing Products Rules

There is a criteria that products must meet in order to be included in the product feed. Products must have: 

1) An Image

2) A Description (The description will be taken from the listing description for the source/subsource. If this is not present, it will take it for source/subsource of default. If this is not present, the meta data will be used) Descriptions should not contain HTML tags

3) A Retail Price of greater than 0

4) An accurate weight unless otherwise another arrangement has been agreed with Fruugo

5) An EAN barcode number (Taken from the stock item's barcode field)

Fruugo will also use the following attributes in the extended properties: 

1)Size

2)Colour

3)Brand*

4)Fruugo_Shipping* - A List of Country ISO codes (comma separated) that the user will ship to.

5)LeadTime - LeadTime is how long after an order is placed that you expect to dispatch it, stored as an integer.

If the product has a size/colour in the title or description, it should also have this as an attribute. If it does not, this may cause the feed to be invalid

* These items are not required, but recommended

Variation Groups

If a user has variations of an item in Linnworks, they should all be in the same variation group. This will link the products on Fruugo to make them easily viewable. If variation products are not in the same variation group, the feed may be rejected by Fruugo

 

 
Please note, Products will not appear in the product feed until the products have a live status, which occurs after the products have been branded and categorised. The product feed is updated every 24 hours, so there may be a delay in the products showing in the mapping screen once the branding and categorisation has been completed.
