  • Catalog Data Feeds for Facebook/Instagram & Pinterest

    Has anyone created a catalog data feed that they are successfully using to connect FB/Instagram and/or Pinterest?

    My goal is to connect my Miva product catalog to Pinterest Catalogs and to my Instagram business account for Shopping on Instagram. Any miva-centric tips or reference documentation?

    I was hoping there might be a template in docs.miva since I would suspect this to be a pretty common request, but I couldn't find anything.. maybe this would be a good topic for a "How To" article on Miva Docs, or even a topic to explore at MivaCon. (I'd love to have a better grasp on Feeds in general.)

  • I started one (for instagram) for a client before he/we deemed it too much work for the return. Main issue (like many other feeds) is that they are not very explicit about data formats. For example, whether html is really allowed in descriptions, and if not, what should be used for simple paragraph breaks and lists. but happy to shipped them off to you to play with.

    It just uses one of miva's standard feed templates. The feed templates are handy as they take care of managing the header, actual file creation and emailing...

    • Another issue is that everyone uses different custom fields for the same things. So one "standard" feed template for each type will almost always need modifications. We have all types of feeds and use the marketing feeds as well but sometimes have to use plst style page templates as well.

      • delcorsets We have done FB feeds before and I am pretty sure Pinterest (have to double-check). The easiest is to start out with your Google Shopping Feed and tweak from there. It's in essence all the same info that's needed.
