Publishing product information online can be done in two ways:
- available in the Supplier Portal
- available on the website
Available in the Supplier Portal
To be able to offer content, you first need a valid offer. An offer must be submitted via the offer feed. You do this via the supplier portal or FTPS server.
The content we get from the offer feed is the product classification (in the portal ‘Product Group’) and the title. When you offer a new product in the offer feed, we adopt these two values for the content. In order to always use the correct product classifications in the offer feed, we advise you to request the most recent list of classifications from your contact at bol.com.
A product classification must be identical to the classifications defined in the list (case sensitive). You can search the list within your shop category. If you cannot find a suitable classification, please contact your Content Specialist. He or she can give you advice.
The list of product classifications is updated regularly. It may happen that the existing product range has been reclassified in the meantime and that a classification in your offer feed is no longer valid. This will not affect existing products, but you should use the latest classification from the list for similar new products.
Available on the website
