How to integrate Idealo with Magento 2

What is Idealo?

Idealo is a website that offers users a wide variety of products ranging from electronics to entertainment, hence allow them to compare between different items to find the best ones. It attracts a unique audience of 7 million internet users each month. This is great opportunity for e-commerce business owners since it can acquire a lot of clients globally.

Since the product data fields in Idealo and Magento 2 are fully compatible, store’ s admin can apply these fields to their product data, which generates Product Feed. Because Magento 2 now does not support feed generating, we need to use Product Feed extension. Besides, uploading your product feed to Idealo is done via the exported feed (in CSV, TXT or XML format) or via the Idealo API for product data. Here Mageplaza will guide you to upload the file in CSV format.
