Summer Nguyen | 11-04-2022

The Most Popular Extension Builder for Magento 2

With a big catalog of 224+ extensions for your online store

If you want to increase revenues by selling on Google Shopping, Bing, eBay, and Facebook, consider using a tool to upload all of the items from your store to those shopping channels.

With the default Magento 2, if you want to sell your products on other platforms, you need to update product info manually - which is time-consuming and can create unwanted errors.

Magento 2 Product Feed extension smoothes your product listing process on other shopping channels with ready-made templates and automatic updates.

Magento 2 Product Feed solution is developed by different extension providers with exclusive features. Check this comparison blog to see the differences between the tool of the following 3 providers: Mageplaza, Amasty, and Mirasvit.

Limitations of default Magento

If only using the default Magento 2, you will face these limitations:

  • No feed template formats, so each form takes you more time to create each time
  • No automatic uploads, making store admins manually update the feed when there is any change
  • Cannot add only appropriate products to the feed, as users cannot configure rules to filter products
  • Slow delivery process
  • Cannot track the revenue of product feeds via reports …and many more drawbacks.

Take a look at these solutions created by Magento 2 vendors and select on your own:
