How it works?
1 Import Products and Categories

Initially, your data is imported into our system. The following options are available for loading data:

YML (Yandex Market XML)
The best option, because supports uploading categories and exchange rates. Description
Google Merchant XML
In format RSS 2.0 or Atom 1.0 - only supports uploading of goods (without categories).
CSV file
In an custom columns format, where you can select the correspondence of the data type in the column. Categories and products must be in different CSV files.
API
The most productive and functional method, but requires the creation of an integration module for your site. Our developers can provide examples for implementation.

For YML and Google files, it is possible to configure regular loading of data by url

This is important for monitoring the RRP so that prices for detecting violations are always up to date. This is convenient in other cases, because you can immediately bind new products without having to import manually each time.

Importing categories is optional, but recommended, as opens up additional possibilities when setting the data update frequency and matching

You can set limits on the frequency of updates at the category level. For example, set an update for some categories every 4 hours, and for others once a week. Thus, it will always turn out to have up-to-date data on priority goods and always keep actual of secondary goods. Also, importing categories allows you to improve the quality of automatic matching of goods.
2 Adding a Task

When adding a task, you indicate from which site you want to collect data and the default data collection frequency (you can override the collection frequency at the category level)

Depending on the type of task, there may be additional options for customization. For example, to monitor violations in the RRP, you can set in which cases to send notifications about dumping and what deviation from the price should be considered dumping.

After adding a task, our employees will write down the rules for processing your site and activate the task

This can take from several hours to a day, depending on the site.
3 Product Matching

After the task is activated, the relevant products are automatically selected from competitors' sites. You can add links manually, but this is not necessary. The following linking options are available:

Confirm correctly matched links and reject all incorrectly matched links
The system arranges selected links in order of relevance. At the top are the products that are most suitable.
Add specific product url
Useful in cases where the system cannot find the right link to the product.
Specify a search phrase for the product
In this case, the search will take place on the specified phrase. Useful in cases where your product is easier to find by the simplified name.
4 Monitoring

After linking the goods, data collection starts. Depending on the quantity of goods, it may take different time to collect and update all data.

5 Export Data

Various options for exporting data are possible:

Export to Excel (xlsx) files
Export to CSV files
Export data via API
How much does it cost?
1 20
1 30 000
Assumes that for half of the products, the data update frequency is set once a week
