Import products from Icecat

Learn how to import products from Icecat into the Productsup platform.


Icecat is a product catalog solution that syndicates product data and helps brands, retailers, manufacturers, and marketplaces to exchange product content. Icecat lets users work with multilingual and multimedia product catalogs.

Productsup lets you import product data from Icecat to help you gain additional product information and enrich your feed.


To use Icecat as a data source in Productsup, you need:

  1. An Icecat account and its credentials.

  2. Icecat supplier IDs to sort the Icecat product data pool and import only the relevant data.

  3. A link to an Icecat index file for the platform to access the needed Icecat data pool.

    See Open Catalog Interface (OCI): Manual for Open Icecat XML and Full Icecat XML and How to Import Free Product Content Into Your Webshop via Icecat for information on index files with links.
