F.e. I need to create xml feed for marketplace like this:

        </category>
        <category>
            <id>2</id>
            <parentId>1</parentId>

            <image>http://shop.ua/img/1/2/123.jpg</image>
            <priceRUAH>1000</priceRUAH>
	        <oldprice>1200</oldprice>
            <priceRUSD>200</priceRUSD>
            <stock>В наличии</stock>
            <guarantee>12 месяцев, от производителя</guarantee>
            <param name="Страна изготовления">Украина</param>
	    <param name="Оригинальность">Оригинал</param>
	    <condition>1</condition>
	    <custom>1</custom>
        </item>
        <item>
            ...
        </item>
    </items>
</price>

This feed must be avalable on some URL, e.g. mystore.com\feed.xml

Maybe, some app in shopify store can help me?
 

Thanks!

You *could* use any of the product feed apps on Shopify:

https://apps.shopify.com/search/query?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=Product+Feed

Or you can hack your own by making a page template.  Have you seen the following post?

While Shopify lets you easily download an Excel or CSV file, there isn’t an easy way to download an XML file, especially with the kind of XML structure you want.

I’m the cofounder of Feedonomics, and we’ve created a way to easily import files from Google Sheets, optimize the data, and export to ANY format, including XML.

We also service other languages besides English, with dedicated support 24/7

Hi Romchy,

 

I installed the feed-product app but the XML it created did not work. I got the following error:

 

This page contains the following errors:

error on line 5 at column 168: xmlParseEntityRef: no name

Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

Hi MelanieGray.

Sorry for not answering for a long time. This error usually occurs because the filled fields in the product are incorrect, or a prohibited symbol is used in the name or description of the product, for example: &.

Send a picture.

Hi, Bape.

 

Yes, you can.
In Product Feed, there is a setting to upload selected categories. You choose to upload everything except those with sales.

I am also attaching a presentation for your information so that you can better understand the functionality of the application:  https://www.canva.com/design/DAE3M7uLB-U/FrqiZp_LMIM3qJmIRlrqdA/view?utm_content=DAE3M7uLB-U&utm_cam...
