Add a channel catalogue

All the data in your catalog must be sent in Dutch (titles, description, etc.) to create new products on this marketplace.
Bol gives the possibility to send only the offers feed if the products are already listed or being created in their interface thanks to the EAN attribute (mandatory).
Complete Attributes Matching
Match your products catalogue fields with the fields requested by the channel, based on fields definitions. If necessary, enter hard values, use functions and/or adapt the values by creating rules. For fields with valid values, select the suggested value or match with your products catalogue values.
Some fields are mandatory and must be completed. Other fields are optional but Bol recommends you to fill them in to improve your products visibility.
1. Set up special offers
It is currently not possible to manage promotions / sales on Bol via Lengow. On Bol, only your selling price can be displayed via the "Price" attribute.
2. Delivery methods & costs
Bol does not need to know the shipping method that will be offered for your items but asks you to indicate the delivery time of the items via the "Deliverycode" attribute.
Only free shipping is accepted for all products.
Note: If you do not want to offer shipping for your products, you can include the amount of your shipping costs in the selling price of your products.
It isn't possible to set up variation product pages for Bol using Lengow (nor another integrator).
For an article which is available in different colors, you'll send to Bol several product pages:
- One product sheet for the product X in black
- One product sheet for the product X in grey
- One product sheet for the product X in red
- One product sheet for the product X in blue
Bol'll create products variations automatically from these simple products.
Attribute "Condition": used to indicate the product state (new, moderate etc...)
If the Condition of the product is not NEW, then the Description attribute becomes mandatory as Bol needs a precise state description of the product.
