You can download Best Buy Canada product data category templates and use the file format to create them on StoreAutomator. Creation of product data category templates is important for the first push of information to Best Buy and starting with the right format will ensure that you input valid values so that the file will be processed successfully. Input errors or invalid values will result in your products not being listed on Best Buy Canada.
Here are the steps you need to follow:
1- Login to your Best Buy Canada account and go to “My Inventory>Import from File”
2- Click the “Product Data” excel template.
3- Select all fields (optional, recommended and required) and find or select the category to generate the template.
4- Select the language and click “Generate”.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you accidentally select multiple categories and click generate template, you will get a merged template which will lead you to product data errors. Therefore, please only select and download one category template at a time.
5- Download the template.
6- Go to “Settings>Templates” on StoreAutomator and create a Best Buy Canada template by clicking “Add Template” from the top right. Select the specific feed type as “Category”, provide a name and click create.
7- Click “Edit” to the template and click the “Mirakl Category Template Source File” tab. Then, upload the downloaded Best Buy Canada template into SA.
8- Complete the mapping of all the required fields first. Afterwards, you can complete other fields if needed. You can see the valid values by clicking “show possible options” in the field mapping.
- You can check which field is required, recommended or optional to list products on BBCanada by clicking the “Columns” tab in the downloaded excel template.
- You can also check the valid values for all fields from the “Reference Data” tab in the same downloaded template.
9- After adding and mapping all fields, save and close the template.
When the template creation is completed, you can start to map your fields to the local categories. If you don’t map your categories to the templates, your products can’t be created because we are sending the categories through templates.
