Product catalogue management

The tradeit ecommerce platform utilises a single centralised product catalogue, integrating product data feeds from your suppliers, product data created in-house and from external contributors and systems. There are three main ways that product data can be managed through the platform.

  • The first option is to manage products - enriching them with translations into other languages, multiple images, links to downloadable content - through the administration system.
  • The second way is through integration with an ERP system, feeding structured product data into the system. The product data can then be enriched through the administration system and then delivered through any channel. All feeds can be managed via Red’s Data Transfer Scheduler using Web Services, TAB or XML.
  • The third way is to use the bulk import/export facility to download the product file, make changes and then re-upload it.
