What is Shopbot?

Shopbot is one of the biggest price comparison tools in Canada. This website has helped millions of shoppers to refer their concerned products and compare prices to choose the best ones. On the other side, it also opens a huge market for sellers all over the world. The high quality of Shopbot’s traffic drives shoppers at the last step in their shopping journey to buy and reach the final stage of the transaction.

Since the product data fields in Shopbot and Magento 2 are fully compatible, store’ s admin can apply these required fields to their product data, which generates Product Feed. Since Magento 2 now does not support feed generating, we need to use Product Feed extension. Moreover, Shopbot supports CSV or XML feeds. In this tutorial, Mageplaza will guide you to upload the feed file in CSV format.
