Data Feeds

Modified on Wed, 21 Feb at 9:22 AM

The Feeds module allows the creation of multiple data feeds, making the current information accessible to external services or users. The information in the Feeds is always updated according to your current data state. This makes it useful for distributing the data to all your partners and channels. Each feed does not add to sales channel count in your subscription plan.

Feed types

  • Products Feeds - extracts products data 
  • Orders Feeds - extracts orders data 
  • Gemstones Feeds - extracts gemstones data 

Some examples of product feed use are: 

  • Social channels (Facebook Shopping, Pinterest Products), Google Shopping
  • Distributors and resellers
  • External sales channels without direct integration with Valigara (Macy's, Squarespace, Catawiki, Amazon Handmade, Pinterest, etc.).
  • Sending Orders into external accounting/invoicing/ERP system
  • Distributing Gemstones to Valigara users
