Create a Website Inventory: Other eCommerce Platform
Building a Custom Feed to upload to Ad Builder
In order to add your products, promotions and categories to your Ad Builder website inventory, you will need to create a custom xml feed which adheres to the appropriate dynamic creative feed schema. The three different feed types you can create are:
Please note that your custom feed cannot be a Google product feed, Google Sheet or csv sheet of your product data. A custom feed must adhere to one of the specific feed schemas listed above in order for Ad Builder to recognise the product data to build your inventory.
Details on creating a Dynamic Creative retail feed can be found in our Dynamic Creative Feed Schema documentation.
When you have created your custom feed and made it available via a URL, you are ready to proceed with creating your inventory.
