What is Crowdfox]? {what-is-crowdfox}

Crowdfox is a B2B and B2C e-commerce platform which officially launched in 2015. This shopping site enables merchants to sell for free, and visitors can buy any product they desire for the best price. If buyers combine their power with the Crowdfox crowd-shopping-option, they will get even more discount on the already low prices. Over 6.5 million items including smart watches, PCs, smartphones as well as home-related items and beauty products are currently listed on the platform.

Since the product data fields in Google Adword and Magento 2 are fully compatible, store’ s admin can apply these fields to their product data, which generates Product Feed. For the reason that Magento 2 now does not support feed generating, we need to use Product Feed extension. Whatsmore, Crowdfox allows uploading the CSV feed files only.
