How to use Facebook Supplementary Feed Feature?

The Supplementary Feed is usually required when we need to provide additional product information which is not provided along with Primary Data Source. It is also used to add certain new attributes or update the values for already submitted attributes.

Supplementary feeds can't update certain fields such as content ID, title, price, availability or quantity. Your template includes the fields that you can update.

So now, If your store requires you to keep the Existing Product data in your Shopify store untouched, but it also requires you to submit customised product data to your Facebook Business Manager Account, then in such a case, submitting Supplementary Feed for your Facebook catalogue would be the best option for you.

Now, when you have found the solution for your problem but the actual implementation of supplementary feed submission would be tedious and time-consuming.

So we have come up with a solution that would ease your work. Our Feed For Google Shopping App will automatically create and submit Supplementary Feed under the selected product catalog within your Facebook Business Manager Account.

So let’s get acquainted with the process of Supplementary Feed submission from our app.
