Creating supplemental feeds

Before you can make supplemental feed calls with the Content API, you have to create a supplemental feed in Merchant Center.

Creating supplemental feeds for individual accounts

If you own a single Merchant Center account, you can create a supplemental feed by following the instructions in the Creating New Feeds section of the About Feeds Onboarding Guide. When creating your feed, make sure you select Content API as the feed source.

Creating supplemental feeds for multi-client accounts

If you manage multiple Merchant Center accounts through a multi-client account (MCA), you can create a supplemental feed at the MCA level by following the instructions in the Create New Supplemental Feeds section of the Set up supplemental feeds for multi-client accounts guide.

Retrieving IDs for supplemental feeds

After creating a supplemental feed for either an individual or multi-client account, retrieve the feedId in Merchant Center so that you can use it to make Content API calls.

To retrieve a feedId, follow these steps:

  1. In Merchant Center, select Products > Feeds.
  2. In the Supplemental feeds section, click the feed name.
