How do I create and submit a Shopping.com/MySimon product feed?

Any products you want to list must have a unique SKU in order to be included in your product feed.

 
 

Enabling Your Shopping.com/MySimon Feed

1. Go to MarketingShopping Comparison Sites.

2. Click the empty checkbox to the left of Shopping.com/MySimon, then click Save.

Before generating and submitting your feed to Shopping.com/MySimon, you must first map your categories. If your product categories should be mapped to different Shopping.com/MySimon categories, you will need to map them individually. If instead your categories should all be mapped to the same Shopping.com/MySimon category follow the steps in the Mapping Your Categories in Bulk section.

 
 

Mapping Your Categories Individually

1. Go to ProductsProduct Categories.

2. Click ActionEdit to the right of the category you'd like to map.

3. Scroll to the bottom of the screen, and click the empty field to the right of Shopping.com/MySimon Category.

4. From the popup that displays, select a top-level category (e.g. Clothing and Accessories or Electronics). Continue to drill-down until the Choose This Category button becomes active, then click Choose This Category.

5. Click Save & Exit. Repeat these steps for any other categories you would like to include in your Shopping.com/MySimon product feed before moving on to Downloading Your Feed File.

 
 

Mapping Your Categories in Bulk

1. Go to ProductsProduct Categories, and click the empty square to the left of the categories you would like to map.

Selecting a parent category does not automatically select its children. To select a parent category and any of its children, you must expand the parent category by clicking the + symbol to its left, and then select the child category.

2. From the Choose an Action drop-down, select Bulk Update Shopping.com/MySimon Category.

3. From the popup that displays, select a top-level category (e.g. Clothing and Accessories or Electronics). Continue to drill-down until the Choose This Category button becomes active, then click Choose This Category.

 
 

Include Product In Feed

Once set up, you can specify which shopping comparison feeds you want each of your products included in. When adding or editing a product, go to the Shopping Comparison section under the Other Details tab.
