Product information

Generates a CSV data feed via cronjob which can be used to create products in a Facebook catalog and thus for Instagramm.

The generated CSV file contains all fields Facebook requires. These are in detail:
id,title,google_product_category,description,availability,condition,price,link,image_link,brand


Please ensure that the product images taken are present at least in the resolution 600px x 600px. Nevertheless, Facebook imports images with a lower resolution but provides them with a corresponding hint. Variants can be exported on request.


Please take a look at the installation instructions if there are problems creating the CSV file. Here your will find some troubleshooting notes.

Unkomplizierte Installation und einwandfreie Anbindung

Wir brauchen das Plugin vor allem um unsere Produkte in Instagram mit dem Shop zu verknüpfen. Die Installation war unkompliziert, der nötige Upload zum Facebook-Shop funktioniert einwandfrei und der Support war sehr freundlich. Alles bestens!

Installation manual

  • Step 1: Installation of plugin through plugin manager
  • Step 2: Activate in the plugin configuration. Choose a category which you like to export the products from and choose the export path and filename. (Path must be callable so Facebook can get the data) i. e.: https://www.YOURDOMAIN.com/media/export/datafeed/instagram.csv
  • Step 3: Enable Cronjob under Configuration - Basic settings - System - Cronjobs.
    Recommended Cronjob settings:
    • Next execution (03:00)
    • Interval 1 day
  • Step 4: Clear the cache and rebuild your theme in the theme manager. The CSV file can be generated anytime via the button "Generate feed now". So this is immediately available.

Tips

If you do not want to transfer your entire product range to Facebook or only advertise a selection of products on Instagram, you can create a new main category (root level) to assign the desired products to and select this category in the plugin settings.

Troubleshooting

1. CSV file is not generated

  • Please check the log files (Filesystem (FTP) var/log/plugin_production-DATE.log or in the Backend Settings - Logfile tab Sytem-Log). Maybe a message indicates to the problem. Please let us know this message if you contact us.
  • PHP memory_limit may be too low. You should see in the log files.
  • Following error due to general Javascript errors in the backend. Please check the output in your browser console (Chrome: right-click in the backend -> examine element -> Console tab). Please let us know the output if you contact us.

2. Csv file doesn't contain products
Check that the selected category is actually assigned to products. Manufacturer categories etc. are not suitable!

2. Prices are displayed incorrectly in Facebook
Check the currency settings "Select Default Currency" in the datafeed settings on Facebook. These should match your shop currency. In most cases this will be EUR - Euro.
