To start profit optimisation, Adspert needs to receive a feed with details to calculate and the profit per product.
In this article we describe, what type of feed format and which parameters we need, to start profit optimisation.
You can either send us a CSV or XML or GSheet with that data or supply us an URL where we can download the data automatically every day (preferred!).
Where to get the feed from. Supported file formats:
Default VAT rate for product prices.
This refers to prices from MWS.
To fetch product values from a GSheet, it must be publicly accessible or access granted to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
The URL in table product_value_feed must follow the pattern gsheet:<DOC-ID>[/<SPREADSHEET-ID>].
Seller’s buying and handling cost for a product.
This should be excluded Amazon fees and advertising cost.
If you as a seller decide to set the shipping cost to zero (for FBM products) then cost_of_goods_solds should be included in the shipping cost.
Rate of VAT included in price (e.g 0.19 for 19%)
No (feed parameter vat_price is the default).
Example of how it should look like
Please make sure to provide information to your client success manage, about the number format for monetary values and rates:
- Is comma or point used as decimal separator?
- Is VAT provided as a rate (e.g. 0.19) or as a factor (e.g. 1.19)
