How to Get Started Creating a Snapchat Product Data Feed?

How do you get your products on Snapchat? Simple.

  1. The first decision to consider is HOW you want to structure your Snapchat Product Feed.
  2. Upload your library of products either manually or automatically
    • Manually, which means you entering your product information into a spreadsheet according to Snapchat’s specifications.
    • Automatically, which means using an extension, plugin, app, or service that pulls data from your site and formats it for you.
  3. Use the data from your product feed to automatically create Product Ads, Story Ads, Snap Ads and the new Collection Ads with templates in Snapchat’s Ads Manager.

If you have a large inventory to promote, you’ll likely want to go the automated route.

What Content is Restricted Within Snapchat Ads?

Although the geographical targets for using a Snapchat Product Data Feed have expanded worldwide, the content within Snapchat ads is subject to certain geographical restrictions depending on the country you want to target.

Note: These content restrictions do not affect Clothing & Apparel product ads.

Why Your Snapchat Product Data Feed Set-up Is Important

Setting-up your product data feed properly is important for 3 reasons:

• To display accurate product information
• To earn clicks from prospective buyers
• To make optimization and management easier

But keep in mind, automated doesn’t mean hands-off. You still need to ensure your current product titles, descriptions, images and other attributes are optimized. Otherwise, your automated feed won’t deliver as it should.

NOTE: By following the same format and structure and as you would use for a Google Shopping product data optimization, your product information will display well in Snapchat Shoppable Ads. Use these same guidelines to get your Snapchat Product Data Feed up and running.
