Leroy Merlin is a chain of DIY (Do It Yourself) and garden stores of French origin. The chain is part of the Groupe ADEO. At Bricoman you can purchase building materials, fixtures, mounting materials and professional tools.
Step 1: Add a new Leroy Merlin connection
The Leroy Merlin API uses the Mirakl platform, which means you will need a Mirakl account to start sending your product listings to Leroy Merlin.
When you have a Mirakl Leroy Merlin account, go to "[Your company] settings menu (in the top right corner) > Connections > Add connection". Click on "+ Add a new connection" and you will see a screen, where you can select Leroy Merlin. Fill in the label for your connection, for example: Leroy merlin. And then click on ''Connect with Leroy merlin''. You will be redirected to the environment where you can log in with your Mirakl-credentials. After logging in, you will be redirected back to Channable where the connection will be available.
Step 2: Add a new Leroy Merlin API in Channable
Go to the "APIs > +Add new API" and select the new connection you created with Leroy Merlin.
Select the field you want to use for Unique ID per item (we recommend the
id field), and the Language that will be used in the Categories step and will determine the valid values for the Attributes. You can also add a master rule group here if you want. Click on "Save" to finish creating the new Leroy Merlin API.
Step 3: Create your product listings in Channable
Once you have created the Leroy Merlin API you can set up your product data by following the steps of the API.
For your product data to be created, your products need a category. Add categories to your products by using the generate categories feature or create new categories from scratch.
Create different rules to optimize your product data. Take a look at our common rules support article for some examples.
Item: As always, you can fill in the offer information in the Item tab. Here you can find our preset template for the product listings. All you have to do is to fill it out by clicking on the field itself and selecting what you would like to go in there. For example, the field 'Title' should display the title of your product and so on. When you have finished setting up the product listings, just click 'Save' at the bottom of the screen.
Tip! Notice the question mark behind every field, if you hover over the question mark you will see the description of the field and suggestions for possible values.Note: France introduced legislation for eco-participation. If your company is operating in France, your company has the obligation to add eco-contributions to your offers on the marketplace. An eco-contribution, also known as an environmental contribution, is an amount added to the price of a product to compensate for the environmental impacts related to its manufacturing, distribution or disposal.
An eco-contribution consists of three parts: EPR category code, Producer ID and Amount. In this paragraph, you can find a list of available EPR categories.Sales channels: Next to the Item tab, you will find the tabs for the sales channels that you possibly have activated in Step 2. With a project field, you can dynamically use the
Disabledsetting to adjust which products in your API are sent to each activated channel.
Note: We support Bricoman for France only.
Almost done! Next up is filling in the fields in the Attributes step. Select the category you want to optimize first. A more detailed explanation of what to do in the Attributes step can be found in our Attributes support article.
Step 4: Send your products to Leroy Merlin
Almost there, your product listings are ready to be sent. If you have not activated your project, go to "Setup > Project settings > Activate project". After, go back to the APIs overview and go to "Your Leroy Merlin API Name > Settings > Activate API". After you have completed this step, navigate back to the APIs overview and select the blue "Run now" button to send your product listings to Leroy Merlin or Bricoman France.
Step 5: Check your product listings for errors
After you have sent your product listings to Leroy Merlin, go to the Results tab of your Leroy Merlin API. Click in the filter on 'error'. Now you can see which product listings have errors and are not placed. Click on a specific error to see more information on what is causing the error. If you have solved some errors by changing the settings or product information, re-run the Leroy Merlin API to see the new results.
