Step 1: Add a new Carrefour France connection
The Carrefour France API uses the Mirakl platform, which means you will need a Mirakl account to start sending your product listings to Carrefour.
When you have a Mirakl Carrefour France 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 Carrefour France. Fill in the label for your connection, for example: Carrefour FR. And then click on ''Connect with Carrefour''. You will be redirected to the environment where you can login with your Mirakl-credentials. After logging in, you will be redirected back to Channable where the connection will be available.
Step 2: Create a new Carrefour France API in Channable
Now go to the API's overview, in your project. And click on add new API, Select the Carrefour France connection you just made and give your new API a name.
Select the field you want to use for Unique ID per item (we recommend the 'id' field) and the Country you want to sell. For Carrefour France you can only choose 'France'. You can also add a master rule group here if you would like. Click on "Continue" to finish creating the new Carrefour French API.
Step 3: Create your product listings in Channable
Once you have created the Carrefour French API you can setup your product data by following the steps of the API.
For your product listings 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 products listings. For examples, take a look at our common rules support article.
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.
Note I: Carrefour asks for the Shipping class of the products, depending on the weight. To add it, create a new field in the import mapping and use a rule to add the shipping class that corresponds to your products, depending on their weight. If a project field is chosen, only the following values are allowed: XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL, XXLNote II: 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.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.
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 product data to Carrefour
Almost there, your product listings are ready to be sent. If you have not activated your project go to Settings panel on the left hand side of the screen and click "activate project". After, go back to the APIs overview and go to "Your Carrefour API Name" > Settings where you activate the API by selecting "Activate API". After you have completed this step navigate back to then APIs overview and select the blue "Run now" button to sent your product listings to Carrefour.
Step 5: Check your product listings for errors
If you have sent you product listings to Carrefour go to the Preview tab of your Carrefour API. Click filter on 'error'. Now you can see which product listings have errors and are not created.
