CARL - Description
For a Carl account, the catalogue import is done through this page by selecting a csv file
the first column/field title needs to be sku (do not use capital letter for this field name)
the second column/field title needs to be ean if you are monitoring any Google Shopping Channel, Fnac or Ubaldi
the fields separator is coma , or semicolon ;
save the file to have 'quotation marks' as the text separators “
Using 'commas' or 'semicolons' in the text or value fields will prevent a file from being imported. For example when adding a price in 'purchase price' do not save it as 15,99 simply save it as 15.99 as the 'full stop' is not use to separate columns.
On this screen, you can do the field mapping to associate your catalogue fields to internal Carl fields (required fields are sku, product title, ean).
To update a catalogue, you just need to import a new csv file. Products that are not listed anymore in the new file will be deleted from Carl.
Use the same fields names between each catalogue import otherwise it will "break the mapping".
On left side, in the menu , the first section is the Dashboard.
On the left part, a graph shows how many products are associated or not on each channel.
Association is done either by EAN matching for Google, Fnac, Ubaldi or by seller catalogue we integrated via the API access for other channels.
When clicking on the graph on the associated or not associated part for a specific channel, the corresponding products list will be displayed.
This screen is a sortable and filterable grid with the list of all products. You can select some parameters to display the information that you want.
if you click on a product in the grid, the product screen detail will be displayed:
the first part shows product information:
the second part lists all offers for all channels with price, shipping part and total price . You can export this list as csv or xls
In the top part, information on the seller collected from the channel will be displayed (depending on the channel, more or less information will be displayed)
In the bottom part, you will find the products sold by this competitor (limited to the product catalogue in CARL) with his price, shipping price and total price for each product.
You can also export as csv or xls file.
On this page you will find all exports generated via CARL ( when you click on "export" on any page, the export will be available in this screen).
In this screen you can enable/disable, create or delete some alerts. There are also several preset alerts that can be customised to receive a specific information.
