Requirements/Tools Needed:

Getting Started

1.  Click Content in the top navigation and select Catalogs from the drop-down menu.


2. Click Create Catalog.


3. Initiate the catalog. These simple settings will help you identify your catalog among others.

  • Provide a catalog title (Required) - the catalog title should be uniquely descriptive. You can edit this field at any time.
  • Assign a cover image (Optional) -  a cover image can help differentiate your catalog from others.
  • Include notes (Optional) - notes can be added for internal reference only.


Click Next when finished.


4.  Define the product selection. These settings will define the way you will select the products to include in your catalog in later steps.

Please Note: How you decide to define your product selection cannot be changed once the catalog is created. You will be able to apply/edit/remove additional filtering at any time.

Choose from the following options:

  • Please include all of my displayable productsall products provided by the data feed(s) associated with your account are added to the catalog.
  • I will choose one or more specific categories - target particular categories to include in the catalog (e.g. Beds).
  • I will choose specific Products - select individual products to include from the data feed(s) on your account (in later steps, the product selector tool helps you add these products by name, SKU, category, manufacturer, feed provider, or brand).
  • Apply additional filtering - check the box to use additional attributes such as feed provider, manufacturer, or consumer brand to group products. This filter can only be selected when creating a catalog for all displayable products or when targeting products by category.

    Use the text boxes to search for the provider, manufacturer, or consumer brand you want to filter by. You can add multiple options for each but are restricted to only one of the identifiers below:
    • feed provider(s)
    • manufacturer(s),
    • consumer brand(s)
  • Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) - toggle this setting to filter and ONLY include Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) Products* (a great option for e-commerce). This filter can only be selected when creating a catalog for all displayable products or when targeting products by category.

'Satisfy Rules'

Create filters applying to "any" number of attribute sets.

#1 This setting is applied to respect the 'satisfy rule' between each attribute set.

  • "Any" (or) - if a product is targeted with the filters in any of the attribute sets defined it will be included in the catalog.
    • For example, all products in both attribute sets in the image below are included in the catalog:
      • Set 1: Manufacturer = Ashley Furniture AND Product Type = Bedroom Mirrors
      • Set 2: Material = Metal

Create filters applying to "all" product attributes.

#2 This setting is applied to respect each attribute within an attribute set

  • "All" (and) - products are targeted within the attribute set if they meet all attribute rules defined.
    • For example, in the first attribute set products added have to meet both criteria: Manufacturer = Ashley Furniture AND Product Type = Bedroom Mirrors.

Please note: these settings cannot be edited.
