BrainSINS Products Feed Specification

How to Synchronize your Products Catalogue with BrainSINS

In order to update in a regular basis the details of the products in your online store, we need to get access to an updated products feed. Usually, we update this products feed once per day, but you can configure the frequency you want us to update your products feed.

If you are using one of our modules (for Prestashop, Magento, etc.), you won't need to create or upload a products feed as the module will generate it for you and our system will be able to extract that products feed from your online store

If you are not using one of our modules, you'll need to upload a products feed. We accept 3 different products feed formats: BrainSINS XML Format, Google Shopping XML Format, Google Shopping CSV Format. In the next section, we describe what you need to do according to your preferred product feed format.

If you submit your products to Google Shopping, you have to generate a Google Shopping products feed, either in CSV or XML format. If you are actually generating a Google Shopping CSV feed, we would process that file in order to get all the information about your products (Important notice: The products id in the feed should only include numbers, not any other char).

It's pretty simple, just copy the URL where we can find your products feed. Go to our management console, and click the Store Type field in the General Configuration. Then you have to choose the option Custom.

If you prefer to create an XML with our own format, you’ll have to generate an XML file containing the information regarding the different products in your online store, including name, price, description, URL… You can use the next example as a template to generate your own XML file (Important notice: The products id in the feed should only include numbers, not any other char):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
   <recsins version="0.1">
      <entities>
         <entity name="product">
		 <property name="idProduct"> ID del producto </property>
		 <multi_property name="name">
