5. Manage Product Feeds & Create Product Sets

Important

Verizon Media now provides you the ability to directly upload a one-time product feed from your computer rather than a web server (FTP or HTTP server) dropbox. This is ideal for advertisers who simply need to perform a lightweight, quick, one-time feed upload.

For more information and steps on how to upload a feed from your computer, see Upload Your Product Feed.

Upload Product Feeds from FTP or HTTP Servers

To create and manage your product catalog, you’ll need to place the feed file in a FTP location with SSL of the feed file, and then submit the location with the username and password. The catalog will be refreshed if you set the frequency of upload to be recurring.

You’ll find the Product catalog item for managing your catalog under the Shared library tab.

How To Manage Your Product Catalog

Follow these steps:

  1. From the Shared library tab, select the Product catalog item from the menu list.
